Prayer Request

This is an e-mail that I woke up to this morning. (Below Pictures)

Please pray for Roxana and her family. Make sure you stop by the Mayan Families website that is posted below to read more about the flooding and to  view all the pictures of the slide shows. I will be donating 100% of the sales to the Fairy Princess Costume I have posted on Cutie Patutuz http://cutiepatutu.blogspot.com/  and I will also be giving 20% of my hat sales for this month. We will be sending in money now for food. But, I would like to raise enough to get them what they need the  food, blankets, shoes, and clothing. If you would like to help let me know karlton5@juno.com.

Roxana's father is missing a foot and is crippled. Roxana sends us pictures she draws and writes us letters telling us about her father all the time. There are 9 children of which 4 of them are still at home.

Dear Karlton and Mary Ann,

I am writing with an update of your sponsored student, Roxana

As you are probably aware, Guatemala has been suffering a series of disasters.

The recent flooding and mudslides have caused a lot of hardship.

Unfortunately, Roxana and her family were badly affected.

They live in a valley below San Jorge and all the mud and rivers ran into the area where they were living.

They had to evacuate for several days.

The family is very poor even at the best of times. The father cannot work and the mother makes beaded jewelry that she sells for $3 US per week.

The family does not have enough to eat normally and now it is even worse.

There are very few tourists now and there are no sales for the mother.

The mother is very worried about not having enough to eat for the children.

I am sorry that this is not a happier update.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me,

Warmest regards,


Sharon Smart-Poage
