We are all called to give of our time, our talents, our treasures, and our love. Everything we have, and everything we are comes from God, who Himself gave His only Son to save us. I can never reciprocate His gift, but there are things I can do to help people, and to share my love of Jesus through my witness of His mighty acts, through my love and compassion, and through my giving. Working with the Friends of Promised Land Ministries (PLM) offers me an opportunity to serve the needs of the homeless in Guatemala, and to proclaim Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior, reaching out and telling my story to the unbeliever.
I've been blessed with a particular encounter with the Holy Spirit, and my life hasn't been the same since. While I've been a believer for as long as I can remember, that encounter not only validated my belief, but personified it and gave it new dimension and understanding. And there's more! It was, and is, a comfort beyond imagination; I want to share that!
I am seeking funds for this mission project for PLM to purchase building materials for homes for the needy in Guatemala. Our building team will be constructing simple homes. Guatemalan Team members are preparing building sites and pouring concrete slabs in preparation for our US Team's arrival, when we hope to construct as many as 15 simple houses. One of last year's recipients, sharing one of the new homes with his son and his family, noted that in his 75 years, he had never lived in a place without a dirt floor. I'm going to Guatemala on July 8 to help people like him, and witness to him why I'm there, and what Jesus has meant in my life.
Please pray for our Team, that we my make a difference in people's lives by ministering to their needs.
