NEWS FROM THE FIELD: ORPHANAGE UPDATE
I wanted to share this exciting news!!!!
The five programs for the opening of the orphanage are written and ready to be revised at CNA, the adoption department of the government in Guatemala City. As soon as they are read, accepted, and certified, the judge in the adoption dept. in our city is advised of our acceptance, and will begin sending children to us. In the meantime, we need to buy furnishings and other much-needed items for 30 children. Items that are needed: beds, sheets, blankets, clothing, shoes, diapers, bottles, etc. The kitchen will need appliances, dishes, pans, silverware, skillets and other cooking supplies. We also will need 2 washers and dryers.
If the Lord touches your heart about partnering with the orphanage, send your love gift to Living Water Teaching with a little note saying, “This is for the orphanage in Xela” and/or write "Orphanage" on the memo line of your check. You can also CLICK HERE to sow your seed now into this project.
If you can change the heart of a child, you can change a nation.

God Is Constant!
By Dr. Keith Spanberger
Co-CEO LWT International
Greetings Dear Covenant Partner,
I pray that this letter finds you living in the Lord’s richest blessings.
For many of us, we can simply look out the window and see the seasonal change happening. New colors, smells and sounds are everywhere we look. I have heard it said, “The one constant in life, is change”. So with life, we either learn to embrace the change or battle it; but normally, change is going to happen no matter what.
I think the greatest way we can conquer the fear of change is to press daily into the only true constant.
Numbers 23:19 (NIV) “God is not human, that he should lie, not a human being, that he should change his mind.”
Hebrews 13:8 (NIV) “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.”
James 1:17 (NIV) “Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.”
If the Word is the final authority in our lives, then we know that God is constant and unchanging. He does not give up, give in, or compromise. Everything He said He would do, He already has, is, or soon will be doing! That’s why we can’t find our security in things, people, jobs, finances, or anything else.
So today, let’s decide once and for all that the unchanging, uncompromising God of all creation who CANNOT change is going to be our resting place. Don’t allow yourself to be sucked into believing that anything other than our Heavenly Father, can offer you any type of security to live life through. When you made Jesus the Lord of your life, then you plugged into a constant that will never leave you or forsake you. That should give us all that peace to live life like never before.
Debbie and I want you to know how much we appreciate your partnership with the ministry. You’re always in our thoughts and prayers. You’re a part of everything we are doing daily around the world. Thank you!
We would also love to hear from you with praise reports and prayer requests.
Dr. Keith & Debbie (Zirkle) Spanberger
