As we continue to work in all the areas the Lord has given us, He continues to open other doors for us to reach others. We seem to get one thing up and running and blessing people and then He adds another. And I love it!!!! Never a dull moment in the Kingdom.
He has given us yet another opportunity to touch lives in Cabanas. Cabanas is a department in El Salvador and there are many little cities and villages within this department. I have been to many of the little villages and can only enter and leave in a 4 x 4. The people there are extremely poor and several of the villages do not even have a water well. The children go to school half a day and the government provides them with uniforms but nothing else. They usually only have one meal a day and it is not much, believe me! So we are working in 2 villages to provide free lunches to the children. We are feeding 150 children in one village and 50 in another. We are working with the mothers in the community to teach them how to cook, grow a garden, etc. If they help us cook, they can also eat. If they give us a plot of their land to grow vegetables, and they work the garden, they then receive a portion of the vegetables and the rest go to the children's lunches. This Cabanas Kids feeding program also allows us to keep track of the children as they have to check in to receive the food. If they are not there for a few days, we can then send someone to check on them and their parents. We have a wonderful group of volunteers helping us coordinate this program and
