Ana and Josefa were very poor and their sparse food supplies had been stolen. These two sisters lived in the countryside outside of Chichicastenango and had been violently attacked by some men.  They had no family to turn to, but they trusted God to help them and He did just that.

One of the ASELSI staff members heard about Ana and Josefa and started doing what they could to help. Then, a kind-hearted team built a small house on the ASELSI campus where the two elderly women came to live. It became a safe haven for them.

It was about 13 years ago when Ana and her sister moved to live in the safety of ASELSI’s walls.

Since then, Josefa died, but Ana has a found “family” of her own in the staff and visitors at ASELSI.

Almost exactly sixty-one years after Fidel Castro and his revolutionary forces gained control over the island nation of Cuba, something new is underway.

Recently a team of Guatemalan Bible school students and teachers teamed up with local pastors to encourage small but growing churches that are changing their communities in the outskirts of Santiago de Cuba.

The team went ready to serve, teach, pray and loaded with supplies to provide resources to the local church and to give to families in need as they visited them in their homes.

In house after house, the team saw hearts open to Christ, others were healed, and more came asking for prayer.

A team of dedicated students and staff from Therapy Clinics International and University of Texas Medical Branch did an awesome job of serving Learning experiences included: special needs school, adult ortho and neuro patients, a training for staff on a new device for people with paralysis, fitting of the equipment built, and a presentation by CONADI (Advocates for rights of people with disabilities). They also provided training for local midwives and built tools that will help local children with disabilities stay mobile.

Angelica Maria de Leon and her husband didn’t have much. Just a small house without electricity, but they had each other and their three children.

Then about 11 years ago, Angelica’s husband decided to go illegally to the United States to try and make a better life for his family. Talking about that time is still difficult for Angelica.

“I feel that when I talk about my life then, that it’s just too much. “

Her husband mortgaged their little house and land and began his journey to the United States.

“When my husband went to the United States he said he went to help us move forward –my children and me -- because where we were before we didn’t have electricity. We   didn’t have anything.”

It didn’t work out that way.
