After his recent trip to Ecuador, Cross Catholic Outreach Projects Officer Fernando Marquez shared some of his photos with our staff. This adorable, little girl particularly captured my heart.
Leaders in Christ’s Kingdom
When I first shake hands with sisters Mary and Jhovana, they appear much like average college students. They carry book bags and talk about their classes, and they are both about to graduate and head into the workforce armed with their degrees. Their quick smiles reveal their justified excitement.
A royal flush
Why am I posting a photo of the little boys’ and little girls’ rooms at La Buena Esperanza school? Because in the slums of Peru, indoor plumbing is as rare as an ipod in an Amish chapel.
Vision from the slums
“Where there is no vision, the people perish.” The famous KJV translation of Proverbs 29:18 may invoke nausea as often as inspiration, because so many leaders misapply it to promote their personal agendas.
The Impact of Education
Proverbs 22:6 offers this advice: “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” This verse offers some Godly insight into just how impactful education can be in the life of a child. At Cross Catholic, we see that impact every day as we receive success stories from the education programs we support for poor children around the world.
Living out her faith
Missionary Ana Aleman has always been a favorite in our office. Her selfless devotion to the poor at Las Mercedes/Prince of Peace Nutrition Center in Honduras continues to be an inspiration. She truly puts her faith into action.
