WINDOW INTO OUR WORLD

"Praise God from Whom all blessings flow.
Praise Him all creatures here below..."
 


I (Anita) was recently blessed to add my voice with those of my extended family........music has always been a part of our family heritage and to have opportunity to praise our Creator's name with them..........a real treat!  In this issue we ask you to lift your voice with our family and praise God from Whom all blessings flow.

Luis chose an incredible mountain top destination to pop the big question!  And Alyssa said "YES"!!!!!  We are all so excited to officially add Luis to the family and celebrate God's provision to all of us in guiding them together!!! Plans are being made for a March 24, 2018 wedding in Guatemala!
Our days are full of activity with each of us often going different directions.  However, in the evenings we come together and our roles as hosts for Hope for Home Ministry Teams is one ministry that we all can enjoy together!  With summer being the peak of "team season" we have enjoyed many evenings of food, fellowship,  and sharing in our home.  The following 4 teams visited in June and July.
The Brad Jones family from Bridge City, Texas served here for their 2nd week this year.  Here Chloe and Tiffany Jones joined Dale and Anita to attend a school "fiesta" with Alejandra (pictured) Bryan and Yenifer from Hogar de la Esperanza.
This team traveled to Guatemala as part of a much larger team from their church New Life Community Church (Pennsylania). The rest of the team served with another ministry while these  5 served with Hope for Home.
For the 2nd summer in a row we were blessed to host a team from Liberty Church in Arab, Alabama.
This team was a mixture of people from several different churches and places (mostly North Carolina) joined by God by their passion to be involved in a medical mission in Guatemala.  During their week they were able to host 3 days of medical clinics in poor communities lacking medical options.
Anita had an unexpected opportunity to make a whirlwind week- long trip to the US to spend a bit of time with her father and step-mother, attend a reunion of her mother's side of the family and spend several days with Jacob and Regan.  A bonus day was spent with special friends from Warsaw Bible Church.  For Anita this was a such a blessing and dream come true!

Pictured left: Kathlyn has been visiting a Guatemala City orphanage 2x/month to provide photography workshops.  She, along with a native Guatemalan photographer, has enjoyed the opportunity to creatively expand the minds and possibilities of the students.  She also helps with a monthly activity day at another home for girls.  Both of these ministries are in an effort to build upon and continue relationships begun in Art Camps through Athentikos.  

Pictured right: Kristin enjoyed the assistance of Melanie Voehler(shown here reading with students) from June 2 - July 18.  As well as helping with the day to day activities in "La Escuelita" Melanie became part of the family and joined in in whatever we had going.  She is also pictured in the banner photo at the top of this newsletter.

The Beyer family is making plans toward a US trip in November and December.  While there we hope to visit our supporting churches and as many of our support "team" as possible.  If you are interested in having us come to serve your church/small group or Bible study please contact Dale or Anita at the addresses below.  


If you've followed our Guatemala journey for very long you know that we have become quite fond of and very involved in the lives of our former neighbors.  This week our family was blessed to meet the newest member of that family within hours of his birth!  Praise God for this newest blessing and please pray that his parents will walk in the wisdom of the Lord!
Family, Prayer and Praise Updates

We have an urgent prayer need for healing and peace ... Anita's Uncle David was diagnosed in June with Acute Myloid Leukemia and is currently hospitalized for treatment.  

We have begun a new endeavor - we are taking Guatemalan Sign Language classes!  Our minds are being challenged double as the class, naturally, is taught in Spanish! We are excited and hopeful to have yet another tool for sharing the love of Christ!  We are so thankful for this opportunity and pray that what we are learning will stick!

The 2 group homes of Hope for Home are in need of more interns.  If you or someone that you know may be willing to consider giving a 3-6 month term of service in the daily care of precious special -needs children please contact Anita  at the e-mail address below and she will gladly send information your way!  Please pray for this need!!


Please pray for Kristin and her work in "La Escuelita"  With Melanie's return to the US she is on her own once more.  Anita is trying to fill in the gaps when able yet the load is heavy. 

Kristin, Kathlyn and Alyssa will all be serving as translators with Health Talents beginning August 5.  Kathlyn and Alyssa served in the July clinic.  Your prayers for strength and wisdom during these clinics are appreciated.

Please pray for Alyssa and Luis as they prepare for marriage and for all of us as we make the necessary preparations for the wedding.


We ask for prayers for wisdom and guidance as we make plans and arrangements for the details of our time in the US.



As always we are so thankful for your interest, prayers and support for our family as we follow the Lord's leading and serve in San Antonio Aguas Calientes, Guatemala!

By His grace and for His glory,

Dale, Antia, Kristin, Kathlyn and Alyssa
