For many of us, winter came with an abundance of sweet memories that fill our hearts with joy and enchantment when we think of the moments spent in front of a fireplace or out in the snow.
Unfortunately, for some families in Icoana, winter’s arrival is not such a wonderful time. Most of them are uncertain if they are going to have enough wood for heating. Because of this, we are grateful to be a blessing for some of these families and to cover their needs.
The project “Warming the heart and body” began with the tragic experience of a family from Icoana. Angelica’s husband, father of three kids between ages 8-12, died this summer. Our desire to help this family helped us discover more families with this specific need.
Our village doesn’t have gas or other natural resources so these families use wood to keep warm during winter. It’s also cheaper and more accessible than other resources. Our project helped 14 families until now, all of them with limited financial resources.
The families were chosen based on the following criteria:
- Families with a poor financial condition;
- Families with children;
- Workers and servants in the Kingdom of God who are spreading the Gospel in the area;
We pray to God for their hearts to be warmed by His love and for a positive answer from their behalf.
“We love because He first loved us”. (1 John 4:19)
