MISSION CAPSULE: With PWS&D support, children living in the rough neighbourhood surrounding Guatemala City’s garbage dump are accessing education at the Franciso Coll School. Students who excel qualify for scholarships to further their education, while other graduates pursue vocational training in order to achieve employment. A letter from a recent graduate is a testament to the importance of the project that is equipping students to pursue their dreams: “I am in my last year, with just a month to go before I accomplish my dream of being a professional and continuing my studies at university. I give you thanks because with your extradordinary effort, I will have a better future full of opportunities to help my family and grow.”

LETTERS TO GOD:

Dear God: When you wrote the bible you made up all the words and spelled them the way you like. That is great. Most of the time I do it like that but I am not doing so good. Ron

Dear God: If you know so much how come you never made the river big enough for all the water and our house got flooded and now we got to move. Victor

Dear God: Your book has a lot of zip to it. I like science fiction stories. You had very good ideas and I would like to know where you found them. Jimmy

Dear God: I would like these things – a new bicycle, a number three chemistry set, a dog, a movie camera, a first baseman glove. If I can’t have them all I would like to have most of them. Yours truly, Eric PS I know there is no Santa Claus

Dear God: We are learning about Jonah and the Whale. Where he swallowed him and everything. It is the best story I ever heard with action and fright my daddy says it sounds pretty fishy. Do you think that’s funny. Sidney

Dear Mr. God: How do you feel about people who don’t believe in you? Somebody else wants to know. A friend, Neil

Dear God: Did you have a much trouble learning Hebrew as I am? Are there any easy ways to do it? I know you talk English to so I am writing in English. Jerome

Have a good week - MB
