Dear Women of Compassion,
Great news! By the time you get this email the first house in Guatemala will be completed and a family will be living in a home you provided! As you recall the winning project our WOC voted on was to build 25 homes in Guatemala and 10 in Honduras for families whose children are at risk of abandonment due to extreme poverty. Below is a quote taken from the International Ministry Blog on Wednesday, March 30:
“The construction team laid the foundation for a home for a single grandmother who is raising four of her grandchildren. They not only worked construction, but also played with the local children. They will complete the house tomorrow when they put up the walls and roof. Even though this house will have no electricity or water, the woman is so thankful that she now has a home.”
Isn’t that exciting! Thank you for all that you do to impact the lives of children both in Florida and around the world.
Have a great week!
