Ok so there was this guy minding his own business when a bunch of thugs jumped him, robbed him, and left him for dead.  There he stayed on the road until a nice guy from Samaria stopped to give him a hand.  Story sound familiar?  Maybe to you but not to a bunch of school children in the town of Saquilla.  Most of them had never heard the parable of the “Good Samaritan” until this week.Image  This was the week the mission team from Bellfield Church of Pittsburg, PA dropped by wearing some NASTY LOOKING MUSTACHES to share that story with the boys and girls.

Telling the children about how Jesus teaches us to help our neighbors is one thing, taking it to the streets is another thing.

Image

Actually it was more like taking it to the mountains of Guatemala.  Besides the program at the school, the mission team also visited the homes of poor and suffering people to share the love of Jesus.

Maria and her sister were also thrilled to have a concrete floor poured into their home by the team.

Image

Pouring concrete just took a couple of days, pouring out their hearts to the people of Guatemala has been a constant thread throughout this week. 

Image

Then again that was the “goal”.   Instead of seeing people in need and continuing on their way, like the Good Samaritan, they stopped, they came to Guatemala, they helped.

Image

By the way, just minutes after being robbed and beaten, the poor man was seen playing “Duck, Duck, Goose” with the schoolchildren, proving once again its hard to keep a good man down.  To all of you who send support both with your financial blessings and your prayers, thank you for being a good Samaritan and “lifting” the people of Guatemala up.
