helped to raise money for a covered truck for CrossroadsKZN for their bread
distribution, food distribution and other types of relief work. They are distributing 8,000 loaves of bread a
week. This had lead to several church
plants. We also helped Escuela Integrada
in Guatemala to get a van to use in their school ministry. We supplied water systems to Sri Lanka after
the tsunami of 2004. We sponsored 4
water systems in Laos and one in Guatemala and one in Bangladesh. We
helped to build a middle school and kitchen in Guatemala,
helped with medical expenses for patients from Laos and Guatemala. We have given relief funds to persecuted
Christians in Laos. We have an ongoing
project to provide chickens and pigs for
widows in Laos. We are regularly
supplied with hand made quilts from the Christian Comforters of Rockford which
we have given to children in Guatemala, South Africa and Laos. Occasionally we are able to bring new shoes
to children in Guatemala.
