Not only is it our first guest blogger,
but also it comes all the way from Guatemala
and from someone so special!
I am beyond excited, if you can't tell.
I wish to thank her for taking time to share the day with us and for all her work.
May God continue to provide you strength!
Our next Lenten Recipe is Guatemalan Black Beans, and offered by,
Presvytera Alexandra Chakos.
Fr. John and Presvytera Sandy have been in Guatemala since 2011, following "retirement" from parish life, they entered their new roles as missionaries.
Now, in Guatemala, Fr. John is helping to establish a seminary, train catechists, coordinate the arrival of mission teams, support orphans and needy children,
and aid the clergy in ministering to the sacramental needs of the communities.
Presvytera Alexandra (a.k.a. Sandy) is teaching the sewing of priestly vestments, cassocks, robes for altar boys, and other ecclesiastical necessities."
With this beautiful offering she is helping empower women, with new talents, skills and opportunities.
To learn more about them and their time, or if you would like to help?

and remember them all, in your prayers.
Only together there is hope.
