We want to give an update on the orphanage. We have 10 babies/children in The Promised Home at the moment. We would like to take a moment to introduce you to them.
Carmencita Analia was abandoned in a little town. A woman returning from work heard a little cry and went to see where it was coming from and that is when she found Carmencita in a ditch. She was dressed only in an undershirt and wrapped in old dirty rags and covered with grass and dirt. She took her home with her because it was too far and too late to take her to the hospital that night. Early the next morning, she dropped her off at the hospital. Carmencita was very undernourished weighing only 3 ½ pounds.
These twin boys are Miguel Fernando and Gerardo Israel. They were abandoned in a hospital in San Marcos. They were born prematurely on December 31, 2016, very small. They were both on oxygen for more than one month. The nursery workers need to be very attentive to them because of being born prematurely. They both are on special milk at the moment.
These are 3 brothers, Santos (2), Lorenzo (4), and Miguel (7), whom we received two days ago. They were left abandoned to an aunt by alcoholic parents, but the aunt has 4 other children so she couldn’t take care of them. They were in an orphanage in Zacapa, which is about a 7 hour drive from Xela.
Besides Carmencita, the twin baby boys, and the three brothers, we have one baby girl 1 ½ months old, a 6 month old baby girl, another baby girl that is 1-year-old and her sister, who is 3 years of age. We are receiving calls every few days to take more children.
We would like to ask you to partner with us in however that the Lord would lead you. It could be a one-time gift or monthly support. Besides the 10 babies/children, we have 6 nursery workers, who work 12 hours on and 12 hours off and another 5 on staff to help with the cleaning, cooking, laundry, office work, etc. We would truly appreciate anything that you could give. We thank you in advance for your generous giving and may the Lord richly bless you and keep you in good health.
In His Amazing Grace,
