Destiny of Hope, Guatemala Update:

A long-time Guatemalan friend of Christians in Action, spent 3 days painting a mural on one of our orphanage walls. Thanks, Fernando, LOVE it!

Analisa is such a joy and growing up so fast.  She is now potty-trained and even wakes up dry some mornings.  She is learning new words every day in both English and Spanish and is starting to use sentences.  She copies and repeats everything.  She has also started attending Sunday School. She’s bonding with her teachers, Evy and Cony, and manages to sit still and pay attention for a whole hour.

 She loves to “help” with all the chores.  Her favorite activity is playing in water, be it in the kid-sized sink, the pila (laundry sink), or the baptismal aka “the pool” and sweeping.A broom just my size

 Stefani, (Tifa) is doing really well with her new family and they allow visits on a regular basis. They even got her a new puppy which she absolutely adores.

Missionary Anita Byle is still visiting a church plant up in the mountains once a month.  Some of the ladies she ministers to are joyfully growing in the Lord and it’s so good to see them sharing the love of Jesus with others in their village. 

Anita has been helping one young lady once or twice a week with her English homework.  Alejandra,18, is our nanny’s daughter and in her last year of high school.  Anita loves seeing her eyes light up when she finally understands what she is learning.

DOH wants to thank all of you who so faithfully support the Lord’s work in Guatemala, and for covering all the workers in prayer.
