Oh, how the little girl’s smile tells the story of hope that food brings! We fed thousands of hungry children in Honduras, including this sweet girl.
But it took months of waiting, delays and many prayers before the container with the food and vitamins we had sent (along with supplies provided by other organizations) could reach those in need.
A presidential election with protests and riots, months of paperwork and a road toll strike that blocked all trucks from entering the city, gridlocked the container. Because of these delays, the container was hit with $6,800 in port fines. But thanks to prayer and God’s favor, the request to waive the fee was granted! Our partner on the ground, Peter Jurka, told of the joy once the container arrived:
The excitement of this very long overdue container of humanitarian aid finally arrived at our property. It was fullof computers, desks for the school, children’s vitamins, prenatal vitamins, feminine products, and other food surplus. The total value was over $200,000. What a tremendous blessing. We are so thankful for the many that gave their time, effort, and donation to make this happen.
