The Need in Guatemala
However, in Oasis that all changed. Instead of cinderblock housing, running water, and ownership of land, the people lived on an abandoned stretch of railroad track where houses where made of sticks, sheets of plastic, and maybe a piece or two of corrugated metal. The only reason that the old railroad tracks are still there is because the people use them to push large water buckets full of water from the well to their homes to be used for drinking, cooking, and cleaning. They don’t have all the comforts that we do, and in fact, they lack much that we would view as a necessity for living. Because of this great level of need in this little community, there are many opportunities to reach out in the love of Christ to these people!
