MONROE – Louisiana Baptist Children’s Home & Family Ministries sponsored its first international orphan care mission trip in June. Sixty Louisiana Baptists, representing 16 LBC churches, bonded into an awesome mission team. They ministered to 75 medically-needy infants and children residing at a malnutrition center in San Juan, Guatemala.
The LBCH mission team ranged in age from 15 to 72 and tackled a variety of assignments during the week. Some provided direct daily care for the children including bathing, feeding, changing diapers, rocking babies, and stacking blocks with toddlers. Others sorted and organized the contents of 40 suitcases of clothes and supplies donated by our Louisiana churches.
Some provided worship times for the children with a daily puppet show, story time, balloon animals, and Bible songs in Spanish.
