Guillermina Receives a House

In Southern Honduras an elderly poor native named Guillermina and her protective dog live like many other impoverished inhabitants of the country. Her floor is dirt, and her cooking facility is a fire outside. The house made of sticks and mud covered by scrap pieces of tin to form a makeshift roof does not serve as substantial protection from the elements. During rainy season, the roof leaks and the mud runs. Simply surviving, Guillermina has lived on a day to day basis, without knowledge of a loving Savior who created her and knows her by name. But God saw her in the mountains of rural Honduras, and like so many others in the history of mankind, He had compassion on her.

“When he saw the crowds, he had compassion for them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.”
Thanks to your support of HOPE Coffee’s Build a Home for Christmas 2013 initiative last fall, the construction of a new house for Guillermina has been funded from those profits.  Local church members labored on the weekends to finish the project before the rainy season began. Neighbors watched in bewilderment as they wondered how an elderly woman with no contacts or resources could receive such a marvelous gift. Praise God for his provision and for the willing workers who toiled to build the house!
Please join us in prayer for Guillermina and her neighborhood that they would soon receive the marvelous gift of salvation through Jesus Christ. Though their hearts may be hard, we trust that God can pierce any barrier!
