The Numbers

On behalf of The Pray America~Manos de Jesus family, we would like to thank everybody who served beside us, partnered or prayed for the ministry this year.  We truly couldn't do it without you.  Your relationship with the community of Chichicastenango goes far beyond the numbers.  The projects that are completed throughout the year have a huge impact on the health, safety and living conditions of many, so we want to share the success with all who are invested.  We had a wonderful time serving beside 27 teams this year and spreading The Gospel into the surrounding villages with each one.  Here is a breakdown of what the teams did throughout the year;

Widow Homes: 98
High Efficiency O'Nil stoves: 96
Home Restorations: 39
Water Filters: 66
Flushable Latrines: 14

Here are the totals for The 11 years of Pray America's partnership in Chichicastenango;

Widow Homes: 951
High Efficiency O'Nil Stoves: 400
Home Restorations: 73
Water Filters: 152
Flushable Latrines: 17

Along with the projects  this year, we gave away almost 3000 pairs of school shoes, many due to a wonderful partnership with Engedi Church.  We gave away over 200 audio bibles  in the native language of Quiche, this is an extremely important tool to help make disciples in Chichicastenango where there is a high illiteracy rate, this was made possible by a generous donation from Family Christian Bookstores.  We also hosted three dental clinics where hundreds of patients received much needed dental care thanks to the generosity of Dr. Steve and Lisa Niergarth,  we'd love to host many more dental teams throughout the year, please alert your Dentists.

2015 is already shaping up to be a great year, there are already 32 teams on the calendar, so if you would like to be a part of our wonderful community, check out our trip calendar at http://www.prayamerica.org.  Only select dates are available.

A few highlights for 2015;  we just received shipment on a new five year water filter that will greatly improve the health in our community, we were previously using a one year filter.  We're also in need of many more home restorations, so please
consider that as an option for a project on your trip.   

God bless, we'll see you next year.
