Wow, when I wrote this blog before the pandemic, I had no idea how much the world would suffer. We continue to be involved to make a difference in the lives of special needs children in extreme poverty.
I think we all can agree that we all want to be well, happy and be a blessing in these next 10 years. As to the blessing part. We are helping to feed the children of a small village of 56 families living in extreme poverty that need food, water, latrines, beds, electricity and micro-businesses. An electric project came by and set up the poles and wire but the people are too poor to hook it up and pay for it. So they live in the dark. We spoke to the electric company that will offer this community a big discount. Most are farmers who work on nearby farms. As drought has stifled the crops they are in bad shape.
We recently raised funds for latrines and looks like we will soon have 18 beds for them. We are still trying to figure out the water, electric and micro-business need.
The community is called El Cielo - Heaven. If you would like to help me bring some more heaven to this place, please send along a donation and mention that it is a donation to help the village of Heaven. Donations are welcome at our ministry website at www.FlutemakerMinistries.org
Thanks! Erik the flutemaker
