Fifteen people from Bellefield Church in Pittsburgh, Pennsilvania, came to ASELSI and used their many talents to help equip, care for and build up the people of Guatemala.

The team traveled to San Antonio, Ilotenango, a town a little over an hour away from Chichicastenango. This team served the people, taught the Bible, and spent time with leaders and members of the church there.

On their second day in San Antonio they provided medical and dental care, did activities for children, and visited families in three homes where they listened to the stories of life in rural Guatemala and encouraged the families with prayer.

In San Antonio the team dentist saw 12 patients and general consult doctors saw 159 patients.

When they came back to Chichicastenango, they continued with medical and dental care in the clinic (30 dental patients and 91 general consult patients), while team member Anita Woolley taught three seminars on building "smart" teams.

They also taught cookie making to some of the mothers at the Jesus’ Little Lambs Center. They visited the hospital to pray for the sick and rounded out their trip with cement construction projects to help ASELSI maintain the only road that provides access to the campus.

We are thankful to Bellefield Church for their team’s heart to serve and care for the people of Guatemala!

Dressed in graduation togas, these little graduates were part of the group of 43 who are healthy and ready to take their next step in a healthy life as they finish the ASELSI milk program.

Since that first mommy who brought her starving child to Sharon Harvey’s door about sixteen years ago, ASELSI has been helping provide milk, formula, food, vitamins and medical care to the babies and small children in and around Chichicastenango, Guatemala.

Recently 43 of those children graduated from the ASELSI Milk Program. Complete with togas and hats, these little ones looked quite different from the day they were first carried into the ASELSI clinic a year or more ago.

Volcán Fuego (right) looks calm in this image but just a few days before it was taken, tons of ash erupted and buried villages resting in it's shadow.

Before dawn on Friday a group of about 20 young people gathered inside a tin storage building in Chichicastenango and organized a pile of supplies. They had spent the last several days collecting food, clothes, medicine and water to deliver to the victims of the Volcano Fuego that erupted five days earlier.

The group call themselves the United Churches Movement of Quiche and ASELSI is working with this movement to encourage unity among churches and provide help to those affected by this eruption.

In early June a team from Christian Fellowship Church in Columbia, Missouri, came to Chichicastenango on a mission – to fix, fill, pull and check teeth. This dental team came ready to better the mouths of many students and teachers at a local middle school.

 ASELSI coordinated the dental outreach to a local school where students and teachers with dental issues lined up to be checked. Those who needed further care were given appointments at the ASELSI clinic.

 In all, the team evaluated 147 patients, filled 68 teeth, and extracted 21 teeth and performed other dental care procedures all in four days of clinics.
