orphan crisis

We are wonderfully tired. Tonight my wife and I lay on the couch of a local orphanage, giddy with fatigue. But tonight we are reminded of our desire to be exhausted from serving the helpless. And does it get any more helpless than this? Click here to watch the new video.

What's sad is the fact that there are thousands more just like these precious boys. We believe one of the reasons we are here in Guatemala is to help rescue more children who have been abused or abandoned. We have been connected with a loving family who for the last 5 years has trekked down the long and corrupt road of red-tape required before being able to receive abandoned/abused children in their orphanage. During that time, they have lost some support as well as some steam.

For the next 3 weeks, we are running The Great Commission Children's Home while the original founders visit the US, trying to raise additional support. For more information, you can check out our website at www.deepstreamguatemala.com or the website for the home www.hogardeninos.net.

There is an orphan crisis in Guatemala, and we are praying that through the body of Christ, together we can make an impact.
