Report from Senahu

Dear friends of Naru, Maya Help, Charity and Mr. Nick.

I want to wish a new year full of successes, with many blessings to you and your family. Since the family has been a fundamental part of the support, great works, that you do, always wanting a better life for poor indigenous families Senahú communities.

I thank God for the confidence and support that enables us to serve many people in 2011.

This year Naru, Maya Help, Charity, Don Nick and Adicay could support 327 families of the three communities in the municipality of Senahu, with St. Nicholas, New Syllabus Palin, with a population of 2.289 inhabitants, making the supply in two communities drinking water in their homes, after years of struggling to make a decent living. Similarly, support, mini-Vegetable production project 32 families of New Palin, low income who have suffered for lack of lack of technology on agriculture and economic resources. Similarly in the Syllabus community, we made a reconstruction and improvements of batteries with 12 sinks for public use.

As for the drinking water supply of the two communities.

We have had testimony of ladies, which gives them infinite thanks to Naru and Help Maya, to fulfill the dream of having water in your home, as they had several years of living in the place and never had clean water and suitable for human consumption in your home, so perhaps say that no longer will long enjoy the service, because it has an age and Avans, but his greatest desire is that children have safe water and grandchildren. They indicated that their revenues are working on farms, could never build a large project, such as its water system, which currently have.

Also share in these moments that families have their New Palin vegetables, all families have already bought their seeds, with the sale of their vegetables. With these practices their mini project, is being held. by Naru, Help Maya and Charity.

The example of these communities, despite the poverty of their families, forcing them to end their big project. As these cases only, give us strength to go on and give meaning to my life, to continue serving others.

We are currently organizing with small efforts to find better life choices. We are venturing into organic intensive agriculture, to find sustainable livelihoods for farmers in our country. We’re about to knock on doors in 2012.

ADICAY and myself, we can only thank God for using us. With a strong team working with a social purpose, which we are discovering ways to better serve and in full.

For all these fruits in 2011, many thanks to Naru, Maya Help, Charity and Mr. Nick, because without financial support, each of you, we at Adicay, we can do more things for others.

A sincere hug and kisses to all.

Happy New Year and Successes in 2012

Back from Guatemala

We are exhausted and trying to catch our breath.  It is so hard to think that we are in this land of “PLENTY” after being in such a primitive area.  We have traveled  through time about 200 years.  I cry everytime I think of the conditions of the people there and pray to the Lord to bless them and give them the bounties of the earth.  These are just a few pix to let you feel of the country.

Safe in Guatemala

The group left this morning and went to Lake Atitlan. They spent some time at an orphanage this morning then went to the lake. It will be really beautiful there. They are staying there tonight then heading to Guatemala City tomorrow. We will meet up with them there.

The day care building is built very well and Dan Nielsen painted this beautiful mural on the outside wall. Great party with the village children last night. Some playground equipment was delivered a couple of days ago and the children have gone nuts.

We have had some incredible experiences. The scenery is spectacular. It was quite warm in Senahu but here we are quite cold. In fact I have worn my jacket all day. Please continue your prayers for us. The rain has not been as bad as it could be and has held off while we have been working. We stayed at this beautiful coffee plantation house one night at the top of the mountains. The rain came and thunder and lightning came in right after we got there. It was spectacular!!!! Very nice accommodations there!

We gave out incaperina to the people in the village near by. There were twin one month olds that we so worrisome. I know there was one child that I might of saved because I was there. I was helping with the incaperina delivery and this little 5 month girl came. But she had not gained weight in 2 months and Yvonne was telling her mother that she couldn´t be on the program any more because she was probably not getting the food. I reached over and touched the child´s arm she was burning with fever. I told Yvonne that this child was sick. The mother said she had been sick but she couldn´t get the medicine. We had her stay back to see the healthcare worker. Money was made available so she could get the medicine and of course she is still able to get the incaperina. There were some tender moments.

We went to Sumac Shampay which was a mountain pools made from a river stream. The river was dirty of course but these pools were blue and beautiful. I could imagine in my mind that the Waters of Mormon looked like this area. Amazing. We may try to fly to Tekal this week. We are planning to meet with church leaders on Wed. Just by coincidence the area humanitarian leader over all Central America was in Senahu while we were there. We want to talk to him about Humanitarian opportunities in the vilages there. The lady, Yvonne; really scared us to death with all the tales she told us, but we have felt quite safe everywhere. We were stopped by the police on one road but as soon as we showed our passport entry mark they waved us on. Lots of drug traffic in the area around Coban. Love to all of you. I have a TON of things in my heart that I cannot write at this time. It is extremely tender.

Again..continue your prayers for us. Susan

Guatemala

What a trip this has been. The Guatemala scenery is beyond description. Beautiful. We have had 3 other adults with us and they agree. One has been to Peru and Hawaii.

We have been busy giving away the luggage stuff we brought. It has been most interesting. We went to a new branch here in Quetzal and the thing they were most excited about was the empty suitcases we left for future missionaries. They said they were going to hang them both on the little chapel wall. By the way the chapel was a house and we held the sacrament meeting in the double car garage. This is the second Sunday they have held sacrament. We are helping them put up a couple of walls to make more classrooms. Very poor area.

We head for the capital tomorrow. A lot to show and talk about when we return.

The Incaperina program is doing more than I thought. Very happy with that.

We hope to be home a week from Wednesday. Hope to see you all then.

BE GOOD AND DO GOOD.

Amazing Days

Hello everyone, I just have a few minutes to let you know that we are now out of the mountains and will be in Guatemala City tomorrow. We have had such an amazing experience as we have handed out the incaperina. There were at least 6 sets of twins. They have a hard time because they usually have low birth weight and then the mother doesn’t usually have enough milk. I saw at least one child that I doubt will live. He was an older boy about 3 but just laid in his mothers lap. All the children were very lethargic.

Stayed at a fantastic place last night, a coffee plantation high in the mountains. I have to go for the minute but I´ll write later tonight.

Senahu

We are at Senahu today to do the incaperina distribution.  We had a safe trip here and made it up the mountain yesterday.  We had a portion of the trip that was like Indiana Jones but most of the most dangerous area has now been paved and so we were able to travel swiftly and safely.  There are mud slides everywhere!  We had to take a shortcut because the main road was blocked yesterday.  The country is so beautiful.  We had a huge rainstorm this morning but it cleared and these beautiful tropical bird started their songs, amazing.

Yesterday we went to a huge celebration in the community of Nueva Pañin.  They had just completed a water project from a little spring in the mountains down to the 42 huts in the village.  There was music and dancing and simple fireworks and palm branches and balloons.  In accompaniment with this water project we gave out the hygiene kits for the LDS humanitarian. This was a huge deal to have clean water delivered to their homes.  No more carrying water for miles every day.  It is this kind of project that i wish the church could have been involved with.  There is another group coming up next week that are going to help build kitchen gardens in this village so they can grow food.  We are partnering with this great QUE che group that is very forward thinking.  There are so many needs here and i love that we can be part of the solution.

It is market day today in the square so everyone is here to buy for the week.  It is amazing.  We rented two 4 wheeled drive vehicles in Guatemala City that had darkened windows so they couldn’t tell how many were in the car or that we were Americans.  The 4 wheel drive came in handy in several spots because it is so muddy and rugged.  Yvonne said sometime we need to come in the dry season to see how lovely it can be but this is part of the adventure. We were so muddy last night.  No water or electricity in our little hotel.  Thankfully we had water this morning…cold shower!

We will be here again tonight and then tomorrow we go to another village that has an Incaperina distribution.  Yvonne said that many of the mothers die in child birth here because of the malnutrition and the lack of medical attention.  She is proposing we help with a critical care maternity shelter where at risk mothers can stay close by medical personnel in Senahu.  Thank you so much for all each of you have given to help these mothers and babies.  I can see how great the need is here and what a difference it makes.  We are saving lives!!!  We still need to expand the program and have several ideas to help raise funds.  We hope you will be willing to help.

Tomorrow night Yvonne said we are staying at the most beautiful place on earth.  We are excited to do that. I love you all!!!!!  Pray for us as we do the same for you.

Sacramento Fundraiser a Success!

A local CAF volunteer, Molly Bushnell, 17, successfully organized a chilli cook-off to raise money for the Guatemala Incaperina project.  This was a very successful event that involved the community of Loomis, CA.  Our goal is to increase the number of children that are on the nutritional program there by 100. This project really helped us toward that goal.  There were many there that said they would go on-line to make additional donations.  Thanks Molly, for your hard work and enterprising spirit.  To make a donation just click on the “donate now” box and indicate that the money is for the Guatemala Incaperina program.”
