August was the last month of a very blessed and successful summer for One More Child. With 13 teams in a row, and 356 team members–we had many new people that accepted the challenge to be the hands and feet of Jesus for the children at the Malnutrition Center in San Juan Sacatepéquez!
Our two last teams of the summer had the opportunity to be in Guatemala during Sponsorship week! They helped put the baskets together and also deliver them to the families with a smile, a hug and a “Dios te bendiga” (God bless you!)
In every Sponsorship Day, we take the time we have with the families to share God’s love and faithfulness to all of us! “You are valued” these are the three words that God put in our team member’s heart, Kim D., to share with the sponsored families this time, bringing them a message of love and hope.
“See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him.“ 1 John 3:1 (NIV)
She emphasized throughout the whole devotion how much God loves us, His precious children and that He wants us to know that we are loved.
The families also received orientation regarding the different types of violence, how to prevent it and ask for help!
Please, continue praying for these precious children in Guatemala and for the many volunteers that come to serve The Lord. That all the love and teachings plant a seed in their hearts that will grow into a beautiful work of art of God!
