Thankfulness and Poverty

We are amazed as we watch God work not only through the POI childrens programs, but also through families in the communities we serve in.

To the right is his brother, Guillermo who is also blind. They both attend the San Juan Church every Sunday. Instead of living in defeat, both of these men overflow with thankfulness. Their joy is so contagious, their little sister Lilia has begun attending church with them as well.

Through giving food to families, POI is able to build relationships and share the gospel throughout the community.

We are so thankful for each of you who pray, give and serve with us. Your generosity and willingness to be used by the Lord is what makes this all possible.
