The community of Servant Sisters in Guayaquil has been working with families and poor children in Flor de Bastión, another poor and marginalized neighborhood in Guayaquil. GMHM is hoping to open a new soup kitchen and classrooms for catechism to help these people.

On August 19, the Servant Sisters cooked lunch for 50 poor children in the area. Instead of 50, over 100 children arrived at the parish hoping for a portion of food. Somehow, all were satisfied. After lunch, we distributed toothbrushes and taught the children how to brush their teeth. We also taught them how to wash dishes. Until the soup kitchen is opened, we will continue to provide lunch for these children every Saturday.

According to our calculations, there are 700 families living in the area, and many have not yet received the Sacraments, while others are evangelicals or belong to sects. They do have a church but there are no classrooms for catechism; the children have their classes in front of the church on the dusty ground under the sun. Please help us build the soup kitchen and the classrooms!
