Flutemaker's Mercy Fund

Helping people stuck in extreme poverty.
My profound thanks to many around the world helping me to help people who can only dream of a better life. Because of you, dreams are coming true! Erik the flutemaker

 We not only want to help with extreme needs, when feasible we also want to find a way to help them break the cycle of poverty. I want to think outside the box concerning this. For instance: The kids of Cascabel, who were rescued from a garbage dump, will go to a hardware store to buy roofing materials to rebuild a roof for a family in great poverty. But what I am saying is why shouldn't these young adults, now out of a life of misery, own the blessed hardware store that we buy roofing materials from! I believe God is about to meet them outside the box!

A Mercy Need in 2017 from Pastor Carlos concerning the Mercy Ministry:

“The mercy bags cost $20 each and due to a lack of funding the bags are delivered to one group in January, then another in February, and then another in March so all get food. Then we go back to the first group. If the Lord opens a big door, we could give all 243 children with disabilities their mercy bag of food and household supplies once a month." Pastor Carlos

A call to action to those who would like to help us in this. A $20 recurring donation each month would allow us to do this.

Next Family to be adopted: Family #8

Eduar Antonio Sandres was born without fingers. Embarrased by this, the one year old was taken to the Honduran Boarder to be sold. But the boy was rescued and came to live with his aunt Carmen Sandres, who does domestic work. Eduar is now 12 years old with problems in his spine and feet. He is in the 6th grade and writes with his mouth. Eduar’s aunt is 50 years old and his uncle William is 55 and works as a chauffeur when he can find work.

Family #7 Sara & Danny Funded!!!!

Danny Quiroz is 8 years old and was born with a cerebral lesion. Danny does not walk or talk. His mother Sara is 30 and at times she will cook and clean at the farm. Things are tough for Sara because her husband died in an accident when Danny was a year old. Sara lives in the very small crowded house of her mother with 3 brothers. A plot of land was gifted to Sara to build a home and she was able to acquire some building materials.

We have now finished the funding for Sara's house! Thank you all for your amazing gift of life!

Funded: Two doors and 2 windows, floor, latrine, paint, table and chairs, and electricity.

#1 The Romero Family the Mercy Part is DONE!

Flor Maria 16 very autistic she will only eat rice and at times runs into the street with out clothing.  Her father is 75 and can't work. Her mother is in her 60's a is For's full time caregiver. Provision came in for a safety fence on the property to protect Flor Also provided were 3 beds, a latrine, a table and chairs, kitchen utensils, clothing, shoes, blankets, and a new roof.

Part Two: To break the cycle of poverty in the Romero home. There are 2 brothers in this home who are the key to end poverty here if they got a break. Both the 25 year old and his brother 42 only make $2.50 a day working in the country. Modesto, the older brother has a knack to fix the electronics of the people around him but hardly has any tools. I would like to buy the older brother Modesto tools for his humble electronics business. A $200 investment in Modesto would provide him with a tool set.

Call to action: Send a donation for $200 in the memo write: "For Modesto Romero's Electronic tool set."

For Modesto's younger brother 25 (I am waiting to learn his name), I would like to find some sponsors to hire him to help our ministry build latrines, put on mercy roofs, work on the farm.  I need help to hire him 5 days a week costing $10 a day.

Call to Action: Send a donation and in the memo write: To help sponsor 25 year old Mr. Romero to work for your ministry.

This will help the Romero family break the cycle of poverty.
