Sponsor A Mayan Indian Child To Go To School.

The Mayan Indian of Guatemala can not afford to send their children to school. For only $12.50 a month , $150 a year you can send a elementary child to school. That is missing one time at McDonalds for 2 people a month , very doable! This is our second year in Sponsoring Roxana to go to school. She is 9 years old and has just started her 2nd year.I have enjoyed watching Roxana grow in the last year and one day hope to meet her!
If you would like to sponsor a child to go to school please go to
(They will send you pictures of your child a few times a year.) These children could use your help! January is their new school year so you are not to late!

2 more packages went out today!

Boxes #4 and #5 went out today for Amore Del Nino Hogar in Guatemala.I sent some more shoes, clothes, and toys. Here is an updated picture of the Hogar in there last news letter they said they have 56 children. Once again Thank you to those who donated! At this time I am not taking anymore item donations for this orphange because I have a few more boxes to send and I do not have any more funds to send these boxes. I am paying for the shipping out of my pocket so it will be another few weeks before I can send the last of the boxes. If you would like to donate to help pay the shipping that would be wonderful and the rest of the boxes can go out sooner, please let me know.
Also, if you would like to donate directly to the orphange they can definately use the help. Let me know and I will give you that information.

The latest

Willy is still waiting on one signature to be finished with his guardianship papers. I think it is for his new birth certificate. Anyone who is or has adopted from Guatemala know that that can take
months for one signature! GRRRR!!! Please keep praying that this is finished soon so that Willy will have all his necessary paperwork to stay with his foster family.

Also my trip is on hold. I could not raise enough funds for my mission trip back to Guatemala but I did raise enough money to send all the donations that have been given so far. The Hogar (orphange sent me an address of a medical ministry that will be sending a crate full of medical supplies to them and said that I can send all the donations to them and they will ship it it in their crate. So all the shoes, underware, and clothes that have been collected will be shipping out this week. Thank you to everyone who donated to this orpahange. It will be greatly appreciated and used!!! You can count on that!

The project I am working on right now....

I was planning on going back to Guatemala in August on a mission trip. I have put it off until Sept. or Oct. because I have so much to collect and raise before I go. I am going to Amore Del Nino hogar to take some needed things to them and give them a helping hand for a few days.

I am also going to meet our sponsored Mayan school girl in Panajachel. I will also bring much needed things to their family.


Here are the things that I am collecting to take on my trip to the orphange.

- clothing for boys and girls size 3-8 yrs old. ( I have had some donations in these items)

- shoes for boys and girls size 3-8 old. ( I have had some of these items donated)

These items need to be in good condition no holes or stains.

Things that are needed the most:

- new underware for boys and girls sizes 3-8 yr. old

- new socks for ages 3-8 yr. old

- diaper wipes

- diaper rash cream

- cough syrup

It will be easier to collect money and buy the following items in Guatemala to keep the shipping cost down.

Money needed for the following:


-antibiotics ( augmentin and amoxicilin)

- shipping cost for the extra items I will be taking

Please Pray these things can be collected in time and that God will provide every penny needed for this my trip and for all the items and shipping of these items. Also please pray that all the provisions that will be needed for my son Josiah to go with me.

If you would like to come along with me please let me know! I would love for you to come!

If you would like to help by donating any of these items please contact me at

you can visit amore del nino's site at
