The Pollo Project

We are excited to announce that work on Casa Shalom's chicken farm has begun! Yesterday, a team from LifeChurch, in Minnesota, arrived - the team will be funding and building the farm during their 10-day stay at the orphanage. The chicken farm will be a big blessing for Casa Shalom - as we raise our own chickens, we will be able to save the equivalent of the salaries of 2 staff members each month! We will also be able to increase the amount of meat the children eat each week. Please keep the LifeChurch team in prayer as they work hard this week!

Mrs. Pogin sifts through sand to remove rocks, so the sand can be used to make concrete - no premixed concrete in Guatemala!
