GOD WORKING THROUGH DLEA AND YOU!!
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).
As we hasten through this year even though it seems like we have been in this national health crisis, God has been good to us in DLEA. I have thought back over the months at the way God continues to use you through us. Without fail, we have worked hard to maintain the ministry God has given to us.
In January we went back to Guatemala for the first time in over a year because of my heart surgery, stroke, and subsequent months in the hospital. It was such a blessing to see our Special Needs Program and our Children’s Feeding Center and the work that continues change little lives.
Bringing hope, healing and salvation to souls in need!

Dear Family in Christ Jesus,
Greetings and great blessings to you in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ and a Happy Independence Day to you! I pray that you are well and safely navigating through this crisis. Anita and I are doing well. God has protected us, but Noah has the Covid-19 virus. He was running fever for about 3 days and was tested positive. He is quarantined until the 10th of the month before he can go back to work. I suppose we are also quarantined with him. Kreslie does not live with us now, so she has not had to miss work, by the grace of God. Let us ALL pray that God will protect us through this thing! It seems like it has been such a long, long time since I left Guatemala in March. We scheduled a DLEA Group Trip for the middle of July, but none of the airlines are flying to Central America at all. We had hoped that things would have turned around by now, but cases of the virus is still spreading and we are having to just stay put. I know you are as tired of this as we are. Thank God that we have safe and wonderful homes to live in and food to eat. We are truly blessed beyond measure by our wonderful Lord Jesus! Things in Guatemala are about the same as us. People are staying as far apart as they can. Our programs are still operating as usual with the children coming for noon meals and our widows still are coming to our center. They just have to “social distance” (I am sick of this term!), like we all have to do, and they use masks. Because of the great needs there it is difficult for them to get the food and nutrition they need with the economy as it is. The only food distributions are ministries like ours who carry on with the work of the Lord in spite of the danger of meeting people’s need on a daily basis. Thank our staff has not gotten sick. Please pray for them daily. I would be there if I possibly could! I thank God for all of God’s people who keep DLEA Ministries alive a functioning on a daily basis. We need your love, prayers, and support more than ever. We are trying to do the best we can with God’s help and your love. We love you greatly! Pray often for me!
In March and April we built houses for 3 families who were in desperate need of help and gave them food for their families. In May we continued with our food distribution as much as we could. Max told me this morning that many people are sick and that “the people are hungry!” I need us to send more funds in this time of need because, though we in our country may be disadvantaged because of the virus, at least we are not hungry, thanks be to God. Let’s do this for the Lord Jesus, what do you say?
Thank you so very much, sweet people of God. I love you with my life.
