I work in Guatemala with Hope Haven international and Bethel Ministries. Along with my friends Chris and Donna Mooney and their family, we share the love of Jesus in various ways. Although giving out and maintaining wheelchairs is our primary ministry, we are involved in many other things as well. Building houses, feeding the hungry, providing education to handicapped children in orphanages and villages, and hosting a camp for the handicapped are just a small part of the things that God has given us the privilege of getting involved in. For several years now I have been keeping daily journals. Once a week I try to post new journals and pictures.

I had the pleasure of spending the week on the Road with Bethel Ministries and a teem from Joni and Friends.  During the week we did 4 wheelchair distributions and gave out more than 200 wheelchairs.   That was not the most exciting part though.  Please view the short slide show below.

That's right over 60 people came to know Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.   Please pray that they grow in their Christianity as local pastors continue to work with them.
