Another impoverished community with 85 families (about 200 people) in Las Llaves, Chiquimulilla, Santa Rosa. We toured a small home made of corn stalks and bamboo where 37 people live with one outhouse (the bathroom.)
The living condition here is extremely poor. I noticed that all the kids are very dirty. Their daily meal is beans, corns, and rice. They have a few little pigs, but they are waiting for them to grow bigger before they can sell them for more rice and beans. Most of the kids don’t have or wear shoes. I saw where the kids sleep but I didn’t see any shoes.
The Pastor’s wife told me that many of the residents here have accepted Christ in the past two months. Currently, they have 35 familiars attending the only church in town.
This was another joint effort to bring heaven on earth and to let God’s love shine down today!!
