Our friends from Rivers Crossing in Kings Mills, OH have sent two groups to serve in La Limonada over the past year (and two more groups will be there this summer), and they have already been incredible supporters of Communidad de Fe and the Grupos de Vida – house church gatherings in La Limonada.
Yesterday, at their Sunday morning gathering, they extended opportunities to the church family to sponsor children at both of the schools. They set a goal to sponsor more than 50 children… and people responded!
A total of 53 children were sponsored in one morning!
And it doesn’t stop there. We are sending 15 more sponsor cards and as many teacher sponsor cards as we have for their gathering next Sunday.
We loved reading the Twitter posts from the Rivers Crossing community after the children were sponsored. Here are a few of the posts:
@philjpoggi: Family grew by 1 today! Sponsoring Katherine Hernandez via @lemonadeintl. We are excited 2 extend God’s love 2 u. 2 wks til our son arrives!
@paulrc3: Excited to have sponsored Angel from @lemonadeintl. 1 of 53 kids sponsored @riverscrossing yesterday from Guatemala City. Love our church!

Thanks so much to our friends from Rivers Crossing for your investment of “love in action” for the people of La Limoanda!!
