EMBRACE ENTRIES UPDATE FOR DECEMBER

I love the Christmas meetings for the Embrace children.  It is so good to see the joy that they have as we hand out everything that their sponsors sent them.  I want to give a huge thank you to our sponsors for providing such a great Christmas for the children.  Even the children without sponsors […]

EMBRACE ENTRIES UPDATE FOR OCTOBER

October’s meetings covered a number of things.  We completed the annual family interviews that update all of the information that we have on file for each family.  We weighed each child and evaluated their level of nutrition.  These latest findings are used to create the new Family History Sheets that will be sent to sponsors […]

EMBRACE ENTRIES UPDATE FOR SEPTEMBER 2023

September is one of our quarterly celebrations to recognize the children who had their birthdays for the months of July, August and September.  This is a big deal for most of these children who would not get any recognition of their birthday at home.  We sing to them, pray over them, give them a small […]

EMBRACE UPDATE FOR AUGUST 2023

August’s meeting went smoothly.  It was nice to get feedback from the families on how their gardens are doing and the extra source of vegetables that it is providing for their families.  The rains have calmed but we seem to be getting enough and hope that it will provide a decent harvest for the people.  […]

EMBRACE ENTRIES FOR JULY 2023

July was a busy but fun month for the Embrace families.  It was our MYB (Middle of the Year Blessing) month.  Every child received a pair of new shoes and 3 pairs of socks.  Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors; we had enough to cover every child in the program…even those who do not […]

EMBRACE ENTRIES UPDATE FOR JUNE 2023

We are finally getting some rain; that is the good news for June!  Our rainy season was extremely late in starting and this is really affecting the people.  About 50% of our Embrace families planted after a couple of random early rains in April and lost their crop due to the fact that no further […]

EMBRACE ENTRIES FOR MAY 2023

May has brought some rains earlier than normal.  This is the month that we hand out our “Gardens in a Bag” so the families will be able to get their seeds planted in the ground right away.  They received some training to explain different methods of using raised beds, using materials that they may have […]

EMBRACE ENTRIES UPDATE FOR APRIL 2023

We covered a number of things for our Embrace children in April.  We weighed each child and did their nutritional evaluation; something that we do 4 times a year.  Abner did a talk about hygienic conditions in their homes and every family received a toilet brush to help keep their latrines properly clean; along with […]

EMBRACE ENTRIES UPDATE FOR MARCH 2023

Our March meetings were a busy time!  We had our quarterly celebration for the children that have birthdays in January, February and March and gave special recognition to 54 children.  Each child received a small toy, were sang to and prayed over and those with a sponsor received a coupon to use at the clinic […]

EMBRACE UPDATE FEBRUARY 2023

February was our Health Care Month.  Every child got a medical checkup; done by Guatemalan doctors.  We had the results of their lab testing that had been done in January and that helped the doctors to be aware of any problems.  I am thrilled to say that we had whole meetings with none of the […]
