The sponsorship days in July were filled with many smiles as the children and families came to receive their food baskets and visit with the pediatrician and nutritionist. We are grateful for the blessings God has provided, and we give thanks to Him for the work that is being done to serve One More Child in Guatemala.
This month we spent some time reflecting on what Jesus’ sacrifice means for our lives. We focused on Romans 6:23, “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” As believer’s our hope is found in this gift, and we are thankful for our loving Father who gives this gift freely. This time was very special as a few of our summer interns led us in this reflection.
During this month’s educational presentation, the children and families learned about vitamins and supplements. Dr. Jorge presented information about how vitamins could benefit the development of their children and each family will now receive a month’s supply of vitamins every month. It is exciting to see how education can make such a difference in so many lives.
We had an opportunity this month to give every sponsor child a full outfit, a blanket, and a small towel. Thanks to the generosity of team members and sponsors we were able to provide this special gift to each of the 350 children in the Guatemala sponsorship program. Their eyes lit up when they were handed their outfit that was picked out just for them. As sponsorship day ended many children were found looking at their new clothes as they waited for their parents to leave. It was a gift that was truly appreciated.
