Love Guatemala’s Response to the corona virus

The challenging times we are in with the coronavirus is affecting everyone. Love Guatemala is no exception. Guatemala has a growing number of cases and they are taking extreme precautions to keep it from spreading any further. This is very important in a country that can not even handle normal day illnesses led alone a large amount of people affected by this disease. They have put everything and everyone basically on lock-down. This means that our school is closed and no gatherings allowed.

However, we are still remaining in contact with our staff and students and doing whatever we can to help. We also assigning our students homework so they can continue to learn as much as possible while classes are not in session. We are trying to encourage and love on people during this time. One verse we talked about recently was 2 Timothy 1:7 which says that fear does not come from God. Our response as a ministry is one of faith and love. We are encouraged and we know that the Lord is still working.

We are continuing to love our staff, students and neighbors. We are going to be purchasing some food to hand out to the most vulnerable, especially those connected with our schools. We stay in contact with our staff and students as much as possible encouraging them to stay encouraged and filled with faith during this time.

How can you help?

  • Please continue to pray with us for all affected everywhere. The president here challenged everyone to fast and pray this Saturday.
  • Please continue to support Love Guatemala during this challenging time even though the economy is not good. Our expenses do not change even though our classes are not in session.

Thank you for all your prayers and support!
