Guatemala Love

Twenty churches in the city of Austin have come together and adopted a village in Guatemala. 

Together we have built a water well, complete with pipes to carry it all over the village, a feeding center, (and the means to feed the whole village twice a week) greenhouses, houses, and we are currently adding a nice big addition onto the existing school.  

Ryan and the big girls spent last week there, along with about 10 other pastors, checking on all our newfound friends.  

Thought you might enjoy a peek at Pueblo Modelo.

This is my Reagan on the left, along with one of the pastors.


Reagan, teaching some ladies how to knit so they can earn their own income.



This is Ryley and our precious Ellie, a baby I met and fell in love with on my first trip.


Look at these precious faces!
