During the last several years, La Misión started assisting poverty stricken families in the
Puerto Barrios region of Guatemala ( nicknamed “the hot place”). During short term medical mision trips to the area, food was also brought to feed more than thirty families daily.

The reason?

Eighty percent (80%) of children in “the hot place” have chronicle poor nutrition and
their parents do not have sufficient income to provide food for their family.

The “Orellanas” is one of those families. They came to a clinic we were providing in Sarita. The children were so weak that they were almost unable to walk by themselves. The mother’s blood sugar was extremly low, only registering at a three (3.0) when the normal for a woman should be at least fourteen (14.0). It was a miracle just to see her alive! Now, her blodd sugar has returned to normal thanks to the food we were able to bring to this family through this feeding program.

Just in this year La Misión, with the help of these supporters providing the financial support to this program, has donated more than 5,000 pounds of rice, black beans and protein milk to families in need in the Puerto Barrios region of Guatemala. That alone is enough to prace God! However, the best part in all of this, this has become the great opportunity we have had to pray for and share the Gospel with these families.
