The Tzutujil are descendants of the ancient Maya. There is lots of poverty and adversity. Our WRCC Team is spending a week blessing them through personal encouragement, prayer, and sharing the Gospel. One of the practical ways they are blessing some families is by installing high efficiency cook stoves in their small homes to replace the open fires. This saves firewood and at the same time nearly eliminates the smoke that they have been breathing and that has caused so many lung diseases.
Our team is working with a local congregation and a U.S. missionary named Ron Hedrick. Ron wrote:
