Since Guatemala was hit by hurricanes Iota and Eta this past November, the needs continue to be present for hundreds of families who are still in shelters. This is why the church continues to mobilize and respond with compassion.
On January 7, 2021, the first aid dispatch day of 2021 began. This was carried out with the support of the Central District of the country, represented by its District Superintendent, Rev. Cesar Ayala who, along with his family, visited the Campur community, one of the most affected communities in the country.
Together with the District Superintendent of the Verapaz del Norte District, Rev. Francisco Cho, and the president of the district’s NCM, they took a tour visiting some of the families from the church who are still living in shelters. They delivered bags with food, clothes, shoes, bedding, among other essential items. This mission ended with a visit and a special time of prayer in front of the building of the Second Church of the Nazarene in Campur.
“We continue to work with the district compassion team; recently we made an investment of more than $2,000 to assist 35 families who are beginning their return home. We ask God to continue to provide provision for these and many more needs.” District Superintendent Francisco Cho, said.
He also said that this is the 18th trip to different affected communities but that most of them went to the Campur community. In these trips, he estimates that they have reached some 3,000 families and that thanks to the support of the Area NCM, they have delivered food, personal hygiene kits, sleeping mats, bed sheets, corn, and other basic products.
