Just met some neat people doing courageous things in tough places.
“Lemonade International serves as the US base for the ministry of Tita Evertsz (a native Guatemalan) and her team in one of the poorest communities in Gutaemala City, called “La Limonada”. La Limonada is a ghetto neighborhood or “squatters village” of 60,000 people with 10 separate sections that are ruled by gang activity, addictions, sexual abuse and neglect. “La Escuelita” (the school) which is run by Tita and her team presents a ray of hope in the midst of the darkness of this neighborhood. More than 200 children receive breakfast and lunch daily, are educated and tutored to prepare them for formal school, provided with clothes, but most of all are loved and cared for. The heart of this work is to provide hope and resources for the children to break free from the cycle of poverty.” – Bill Cummings
“About a year ago we sold everything we owned and moved to South Africa. It was probably the hardest and most wonderful thing we have ever done. Yay. We work and live in Port Elizabeth…feeding kids. We run soup clubs and a Child Sponsorship Program. Right now over 700 kids get at least one meal a day. We also are involved with a hospice program and some other fun stuff. Just trying our best to love people and build relationships.” – Kristi Fair (a.k.a. Kristi Applesauce)
