NOURISHMENT FOR THE BODY AND SOUL
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
For I am the Lord your God who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.
But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
2 Thessalonians 2:16-17
May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and by his grace gave us eternal encouragement and good hope, encourage your hearts and strengthen you in every good deed and word.
2 Corinthians 4:18
So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
1 Peter 5:7
Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.
I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.
2 Thessalonians 3:16
Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times and in every way. The Lord be with all of you.
In his name the nations will put their hope.
Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.
Sunday, March 29th, after watching church online, our family felt compelled to start a "food program" for Ixchel and Kalak employees during this pandemic. This program provides basic food items while spreading hope. Many of you reached out to us, thank you.
With the enthusiastic support of Ixchel management and others (a special thank you to Sonia,) we kicked off the distribution in just 3 days. Wednesday, Kalak employees received their first package. The appreciation shown after this first distribution was overwhelming. We are continuing weekly! Below you will see some pictures as well as video links.
Thanks to your help, our initial goal of feeding 75 families through June was surpassed. We are funded through July!
We are hoping to raise additional funding to extend giving through August.
Additional funds will allow us to extend the giving as needed.
We know some of you help in your own way...please continue! For those of you looking for a way to help we have attached information.
