I want to talk about agreat way to be terrific as you treat someone to goodness. My husband and I know a sweet woman named Mary Purvis. Mary took her call from God and made a terrific difference in the lives of the Guatemalan people. In 1990 Mary went to Guatemala and
for the next 20 years Mary took short-term mission trips to Guatemala. In 2010 she headed the call to move permanently to Guatemala launching many outreach programs in the villages of Rabinal, Rio Negro, and Pacux:
Among operating student and grandparent sponsorship, feeding programs and medical aid Mary has developed a unique opportunity for others to be a part of changing peoples lives.
|Kids at the feeding program|
The feeding program is a mere $25 a month to feed a child or grandparent 5 hot meals a week.
That's 5 Starbucks, 3 meals at chick fil a or less than your water bill.
My husband and I have two little ones Esteban and--- that are in the program and here they are , just so you can have a visual as you try to virtually pinch their cheeks through the screen. One day I hope to go to Guatemala and pinch their cheeks in the flesh, ( I will need to check on the cultural acceptability of such actions, first)

Evn if $25 a month is not doable for you. Any amount given I know will be used for the purpose of the children. That is part of the beauty of GLZ it is small and effective. Mary doesn't just advocate for this people she lives with them everyday. She shares their joys and their heartache and the goodness of God everyday.

How terrific to be a part of that?
