LA MERCEDES feeding program launched March 2014! What began as a vision in a poor Guatemala pastor’s heart to give a nutritious drink to the many impoverished children of the area is now a fully operational feeding center. Children come from miles, often by foot, to enjoy a hot meal and some teaching in God’s Word M – W – F in the remote village of La Mercedes, Guatemala.
Roger & Beth Briggs, founders of Hearts for Heaven ministry, joined national directors, Oscar & Telma Martin in March to take individual photos of the children of La Mercedes for future sponsorship. Now, thanks to much prayer and planning 110 children are now being fed and available to be sponsored! We now challenge folks to pray about making a difference in these childrens’ lives by sending $25.00 a month to sponsor a child. Click on Get Involved – Sponsor a Child.
Thank you for sharing in the vision. You see…. It was twelve years ago that we opened another feeding program. IN the early weeks that we opened the San Antonio Buena Vista program, 77 children prayed the prayer for salvation with us. God is faithful!
In a future post, we will share with you more about the extreme poverty that pastors, Maricela and Max live in there in La Mercedes and the mighty miracles that God has performed in their lives.
