The statistics for the orphaned children of Guatemala is staggering. Nearly 400,000 orphans reside in Guatemala, nearly 1 in 4 children abandoned in the streets each day. Little Lambs is helping to bridge the gap for these children by providing food, shelter, and a loving environment where they can learn about Jesus Christ. Since March, we have received two new children totaling 10 children that are under our care. Many of the children come to us with difficult backgrounds. The wounds they have endured is unimaginable for most to comprehend. However, we are reminded of Jeremiah 30:17 “But I will restore you to health and heal your wounds, declares the LORD, because you are called an outcast, Zion for whom no one cares.” We serve a God who is a Redeemer and Restorer of things and people once lost. Here at Little Lambs International these children are learning about the true love of God. The kind of love that calls them beloved children of the King instead of outcasts! Please join us in our efforts to help rewrite the stories of these children!
Our previous two teams completed some major milestones in construction for Little Lambs. Our Crossroads team completed laying 1 kilometer of 2” pipe down the mountain. That pipe will feed our lower water tank with water for construction and for the entire lower compound. They also laid all the 6” main water line for the whole compound, over 2,000 ft of pipe! Now each future house and building for the compound is ready to be easily connected to the water line! 2,000 ft of electrical pipe was also laid that will bring electricity to all of the compound! The team connected with the community by visiting homes with food baskets, providing a daily VBS program for the local villagers. As well as assisting a local church service one evening which was a great highlight of the trip! Our Ashburnham Apostolic Lutheran team was able to pour the concrete for the two big arches going across the entryway to the compound with the homes.The gate our kids will come through, in order to be changed by the love of Christ! We are so grateful for all our teams hard work !
