Bringing Relief to His People

Relationships: Elemental to Who We Are

A Prince of Peace for Bujumbura

What must it be like to fear for your life and those of your family members so much that you leave all that you know and all of your belongings in the dark of night to flee over 100 miles to foreign land? Those of us in North America can only imagine.

People Helping People

Hurricanes, earthquakes, floods, landslides, and droughts damage the lives of unprepared populations living in vulnerable areas. Guatemala is prone to these recurrent disasters which, among other problems, limits access to food supplies for already impoverished and insecure families.
