Life in La Limonada

Every day new stories emerge of what life is like for the people of La Limonada. Tita and her team meet people, listen to their stories and do what they can to help… trusting God to meet needs they are not able to.

She is malnourished and pregnant with her ninth child. Her husband is not able to find a job. They don’t have access to birth control. They are living in extreme poverty. But Tita says, “They are trying to trust God for provision. They don’t have faith that some have, but they are starting down that pathway. They have beautiful hearts and need our prayers.”
He is more than 60 and is blind, she is more than 70 and their only income is the Q150.00 (equivalent to about $19) they receive each month from the government. Tita says, “even in those circumstances they are so happy”!This is what “E” calls home. He is a beautiful man. It is rainy season and his blankets are soaked. But every day he offers his services by helping people carry heavy supplies through the ghetto. He gets paid a matter of pennies and spends most of it on glue which he sniffs to get rid of the hunger and the pain he keeps inside.

Another day of life in La Limonada…

…and more opportunities to serve the poor.

Isaiah 58:10 “And if you give yourself to the hungry, and satisfy the desire of the afflicted, then your light will rise in darkness, and your gloom will become like midday. And the LORD will continually guide you, and satisfy your desire in scorched places, and give strength to your bones; and you will be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water whose waters do not fail.”
