(The following was sent to provide an example of how the Luke Society ministry in Patzun, Guatemala, is providing hope in the community.)

Tomas suffered an epileptic seizure three months ago and fell in a campfire that he had make to heat his food in the field.

He severe burns, and because of his extreme poverty had spent three months without medical attention.

It was impactful and sad to find him at home without any treatment and without hope.

We treated the burns in the clinic and we have taken him for diagnostic studies. A possible carcinogenic mass in the head was identified and therefore convulses. He needed an operation on the head to remove the mass and confirm what type of mass is.

Almost all of the skin has now been recovered, and the evaluations that the hospital requires to enter and operate on it.

Latin America Relief Fund

Blessed is the one who has concern for helpless people. The Lord will rescue him in times of trouble." — Psalm 41:1

In March of this year, devastating storms hit the west coast of Peru, causing massive flooding. In the coastal region north of Lima 700,000 were left homeless and 94 people were killed. As we have seen wherever the Luke Society has been called to serve, the poor live in inadequate homes, suffer from inferior infrastructure and have a decreased ability to respond to natural disasters. Homes are of simple construction and vulnerable to the elements. In addition to the immediate physical impact of the storms, local resources are unable to respond to emergencies we see in developed countries.

The Luke Society isn’t a relief agency, and we don’t typically direct our efforts to specific tragedies. But when a disaster like this occurs where we have a ministry partnership, we are uniquely positioned to provide an effective and efficient response. Our Christian compassion compels us to act in these situations.
