Tag archive of Thank You


A few months ago Loving Arms issued an eBlast about a little girl who has been struggling with cancer. We now would like to give you an update about her. On November 30th Mirta turned 4. As you can see by her picture, her hair has began to grow back. Chemotherapy is finished for now and Mirta is beginning to feel like the other kids because the constant travel to the city is over, at least for now. Her entire village helped her and her family to

Awesome work! Many Thanks to Barb and Her Team

With over 1000 people seen at clinics, in many villages, over the week, I think this team could top the numbers of any Doctor’s Clinic anywhere. Fantastic job! The team also managed to adopt-a-house for a very needy family of 5 children and a widowed mom from La Hermitas. They received bunk-beds, an armoire, as well as each individual member of the family received their own clothing from different members of the team. The family was very overwhelmed

Thanks to Betty and Her Team!

Well the East-meets-West group had a great week. Some of these people met each other for the first time but all seemed to gel and a great deal of work was accomplished. 32 suitcases of donations were sorted and stored. Items ranged from school supplies to clothes to building materials and supplies for co-ops. The team taught sewing lessons (making a small purse) to women from Chitaburuy. The women from La Hermita were given a lesson introducing

This team gets a huge thank you from Betty, the team leader of the next team, for preparing the cement floor for her

Thank you – Dresden First Baptist Church Team!

Greg’s team may not have been very large in number nor did they stay for a long time but Loving Arms is grateful for the work they did. The families of Paraxaj and Corrales were the very happy recipients of Vocational Bible Studies. Lessons were taught and reinforced through skits, games and crafts. At the Centre of Hope, the Baking Co-op learned to make two new types of cookies. The ladies can now make and sell these cookies. New skills were taught

Volunteer Appreciation – June 22nd, 2014

June 22nd turned out to be a lovely day for our appreciation event with bright sunshine and a light breeze. Inniskillin was prepared to greet us with a taste of their sparkling white wine as we enjoyed the view of the vineyard, a refreshing treat to begin our experience. Next our group was escorted to the "Wine Library" for some delicious food to nibble and more wine to enjoy as the group mingled and caught up on the latest details of group work.
