Claudia is a patient at the health center where we work weekly. She has been taking care of her sick and disabled mother for many years, and this is one of the main reasons of why Claudia suffers from depression, because she said to us that she does not have a life of her own, and she is not happy, even though she loves her mother.
We will pray for Claudia, so God gives her the strength and also that she can find peace and calm in her life.
Between january 16th and 20th, the IV Bi-national Meeting of Chilean Argentinian Lutheran Church took place in the city of Santiago, Chile
This meeting organization, IELCHI, requested our Ministry Center to hold a special preparation workshop for these teenagers, for two days, in order to work with them in several locations of the community, handing out brochures and information about our organization and the varied activities of the Santiago Mission.
Such workshop was completed by Pastor Omar Kinas, and our Director Mrs. Marianela Bravo. It was a very pleasant opportunity to share and work with this group of Lutheran young people, who were volunteer throughout this time.
Mrs. Margarita asked for the brochure: “La Muerte” (“Death”) in one of the health centers that we work weekly.
She and her family need consolation for the tragic death of her two brothers.
Margarita wanted to know what happen after the death. Even though she is catholic she does not has a clear idea about the afterlife and she does not understand this process.
We believe that this brochure will help Margarita and her family to understand and to find comfort through the Message of Hope of our Savior written on this brochure.
Furthermore Margarita requested that we will pray for her and the rest of her family for God will give them strength and consolation in their lives.
