Thanks to the kindness of friends of Cross Catholic Outreach and our ministry partners in the Diocese of Santa Rosa de Lima in Guatemala, families who once lived in dilapidated shacks now live in safe and sturdy homes for the first time in their lives. These durable concrete block homes will stand-up to wind, rain and harsh sun.
On my first trip to the Diocese of Santa Rosa de Lima, I had no idea what God had in store for me. My simple intent was to learn more about a disaster relief project we’d collaborated on with the Pontifical Council Cor Unum. But God was working behind the scenes to accomplish something much more profound. Though I didn’t know it then, Cross Catholic Outreach was actually in Santa Rosa by divine appointment — and we would soon play a critical role in helping the diocese overcome an incredible challenge.
