Three Stories of Hope in Latin America

Roselene Joseph* The following stories were written directly by the recipients/ministry partners.

“My name is Roselene Joseph. I live in the countryside, more speci cally in Bintouribe, near Christian Baptist Church––of which I am a member. It does not rain very often in here, and for that reason, we experience a lot of hunger. Our lives depend on the successful growth of our crops. We nd ourselves in great di culty to live right now due to an extreme drought.

However, my two year old and I found grace before the eyes of our pastor, and we have been receiving Food Paks for the last couple of months. is is essential to our living and development as true humans. In fact, it is through the mercy ministry, that I have come to know Jesus as my savior.

Please accept this letter as a demonstration of our sincere thankfulness to you. May God bless you!”

—Roselene Joseph, Member of Christian Baptist Church in Bintouribe, Haiti.

With no help or support, I was approached by two members of Christian Baptist Church. ey immediately started showing me love and care by providing Food Paks for me and my daughters. Eventually, they shared the gospel with me, so I put my trust in Jesus as my Lord and Savior.

ank you for thinking of us. e food we get is a demonstration of your sincere concern.”

—Petter Annette, Food Pak recipient in Haiti

“A group of pastors that are part of the Mercy Network in our country, went to a village called San Juan Sacatepequez to deliver Food Paks. is area is known for its striking poverty and sense of hopelessness among the members of the community. So we thought it would be tting not only to deliver hope there materially but also spiritually through the gospel of Jesus Christ.

When we arrived, we were a ectionately received by a group of 25 people. ey were so thankful for the food that they decided to prepare lunch for us. Despite their lack of resources, their love is—amazingly—overabundant. After we delivered the Food Paks, we got together for a time of fellowship and spiritual encouragement.

We basically wanted to thank God for the resources given to us through Children’s Hunger Fund for the bene t of our people in Guatemala. ese are some of the pictures of our meeting.

ank you very much for helping us in helping others in need. May God continue to bless you in all your endeavors.”

— Yoni Rodriguez, Pastor of Church La Hermosa Shalom.
