Psalm 72:3-5; 11-13. “He will bring justice to the poor of the people; He will save the children of the needy, And will break in pieces the oppressor.” For He will deliver the needy when he cries, The poor also, and him who has no helper. He will spare the poor and needy, And will save the souls of the needy."
Proverbs 31:9, "Open your mouth, judge righteously, And plead the cause of the poor and needy."
"My little children, let us not love in word or in tongue, but in deed and in truth." (I John 3:18).
A couple of weeks ago our staff told me that we have recently lost 3 in our old people who have been getting help from our ministry. Some others of them are sick. Such is the case with 87-year-old Otillia Valle who has been in our ministry since the beginning. She was doing in December when she received the generous Christmas basket, but now
Bringing hope, healing and salvation to souls in need!

Dear People of God,
Greetings and sweet blessings to you in the Name of Jesus, our Lord. I pray you are doing well and healthy these difficult days. Anita and I are well, but two of our daughters-in-law have both lost family; Phil’s wife Marci lost her mother, and Dave’s wife Erin lost her stepfather, both from COVID-19. I am sure we are all praying for everyone who wants the vaccine will get it soon! I got an appointment for a week from today, thanks be to God!!
We are off to a good start for this new year. We are starting to DOUBLE-UP with our Food Relief Program this month. I told Max a few days ago that we need to give a double amount of food this week because the people are suffering with food in short supply and prices are so high. Thank God, in our country we do not have to wonder if they will have anything at all to eat for their children or widows. We are blessed above measure! We could all probably miss a few meals and not die or at least adjust our meal plans. Last night we made a big pot of red beans which will last us 2-3 days! Besides, my Dad always quoted Psalm 37:25; “I have been young, and now I am old; yet is have not seen the righteous forsaken, not His descendants begging bread.” We can live on that one until Jesus comes!!

We are going to Guatemala in a couple of weeks to take care of important beginning of the year business and assess our Food Relief Program so that we can be more strategic with implementing our work. I also believe God would have us build a “casita” for a little family who does not have a safe and warm place to live. This time of the year night are very cold in the mountains and the wind blows through many of the cornstalk houses. Perhaps we all will have compassion and provide a better quality of life one little family at a time, what do you say?
I am so thankful for those of you who believe God has given a special love for the people of Guatemala, especially in this time of crisis. I pray that God will continue to bless you and use you for His glory. Please continue to pray for me often.
she is sick in her house. As of yesterday, she was still alive. We are doing everything we can to keep her as comfortable as possible and giving the food and medicine she needs.
Not only are widows suffering, people in general are having a difficult time putting some kind of food in their stomachs. Especially families with children, many of them single mothers, are desperate for food. We are doubling up our distribution of food with larger, more generous bags of food and supplies.
This is not the time to “grow weary while doing good” as people are truly hungry. God has told us “Is it not to share your bread with the hungry, and that you bring to your house the poor who are cast out; when you see the naked, that you cover him, and not hide yourself from your own flesh? Then your light shall break forth like the morning, your healing shall spring forth speedily, and your righteousness shall go before you; the glory of the Lord shall be your rear guard.” (Isaiah 58:7-8)
May God keep you safe and warm and may the Lord use all of us to bring glory, praise, and thanksgiving to His Name. Pray for those who need us the most. And as always, please pray often for me.
