Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 2006. 

Christmas is intimately related to the manifestations of the soul, because of what human beings have expressed in words and art trying to reflect and transmit the spirit of Christmas through their creations.

With art we recreate the spirit of Christmas and we enjoy these holidays which are not only for gatherings and parties, but the real feeling of Christmas is feeling Gods love for humanity, the solidarity, the cry for love in this World, the longing that there are no longer children in the street with hunger, overall; the feeling of Gods presence in each human being and in his works.

Ecclesiastes 11:1 ¶ Cast thy bread upon the waters: for thou shalt find it after many days.

This word is true in the process of formation in the life of the 4 Maturana brothers; Judis, Oscar, Over and Omar, (on the picture to the right) whom come from the province of Uraba. They have lived their worst nightmare as they witnessed their father stabbing their mom and killing himself while falling in the arms of his oldest son. Their mother was rushed to the hospital but did not survive the ordeal and died after several days.
In the beginning each one of them showed different reactions in their behavior like; isolation, fear, rage, hatred, frequent crying and showing much pain and symptoms that affected their education and learning process. Always accompanied by memories and important dates where their parents would have been with them while alive. Nevertheless the unity of brotherhood they showed among them and their emotional structure helped a little. The overprotection of the older brother to take care of them and to protect them was very significant and for a long time we did not know what to do about that but to pray and try to understand the situation.
After this time help from professional people, counseling and the love of God have helped in the recovery of the loss of their parents and understanding that we are part of their family, seeing God as their father. They improved in their learning skills and progressed in school and improved their relationship with other people.

The other boys and girls who live in our houses have finished the school year with excellent grades, having received nominations of honor by their school. They have also done great in the areas of socializing, reeducation and Christian principles through their actions thanks to what they have learned from our great staff.
For all the experience, we give thanks to God for His provision and faithfulness for the ministry.
God’s blessings and Merry Christmas to you.

Gloria Estefanía Diaz on the picture to the right is 9 years old.
Gloria has 4 brothers and sisters. She came to us 2 years ago as an undernourished and weak little girl. She was abandoned by her parents and living with her grandparents, whom could not take care of her either because of lack of money. In the end she suffered of a high degree of undernourishment which also affected her concentration at school and she fell behind a great deal in her education level.
At the moment we can see her growing again physically, and she is gaining her weight/age/height proportion fast. Psychologically she is doing great, and that helps her catch up at school. Praise God. Thanks a lot for your prayers and support. God bless you.

Hello dear friends in Christ.
I lovingly greet you and I wish you God’s peace over your lives.

We are working on the street and in a place where a lot of very poor people live. Thanks to God that I can lead this program with your support and a great team and lots of love for the needy. We are reaching whole families whom have nothing but one dirty room to live in. First of all we tell them that God can help them in their needs while we also give them what we can materially. This way we could also help a family with some tools to be able to fix cars. The children were really happy to receive clothes, shoes and uniforms for school. We can also bless other families with groceries so the children have enough food for their growth. We also have handed out literature with teachings of Jesus and play games with them, and teach them from the word of God.
Recently we had a heath brigade where we treated the children who had lice and cut their hair, cleaned and cut their nails, cleaned their ears, teeth and infections on their bodies. We handed out little presents and a healthy lunch and played games with which we could bless 120 children and 50 adults.

On the street by means of handing out warm chocolate milk and bread we can preach the gospel and share the love of God. It is sad to see children whom later on would have to sleep on the street with cardboard as blankets. Dealers whom roam the street and drug addicts will have to continue on begging. Others have to continue practicing prostitution because they don’t know any better. We want to be able to reach these people and help them, especially the youth.
By organizing soccer games, activities and handing out chocolate milk and bread we are able to share the Gospel with them.
God bless you,
