Samaritan Project

Samaritan Project General Update

We are completing another calendar year for our Samaritan Project. We have seen a couple more of our ministry churches get on board with this and use this outreach to touch their communities, by meeting a practical need…the need that everyone has, to have decent housing. The project provides the materials, but the local church provides the labor. It is NOT something that is common in this culture; to get involved in the lives of non-family members! But praise God that the churches are learning the blessing that it is to do just that; they have built stronger relationships with other church members, they have seen fruit and impacted lives in the candidates that they reach out. In 2017 we have completed 59 projects as follows by churches:

Agua Zarca – 20 projects

Tular – 2 projects

Camotan – 1 project

Dos Quebradas – 6 projects

Marimba – 30 projects

The testimonies that come back from the recipients are heart warming and I am over joyed to see our churches learn what it is to walk out their Christianity in ways that people recognize the love of God in action!

Samaritan Project Update for Dos Quebradas

Maria Ramirez is 67 years old and has been a widow for some years. She is still raising two of her children. Her married children help her each month by giving her $35 and some food. She has been living with a daughter-in-law. She had a small piece of property of her own but had been unable to do anything with it. She now has her own place to live in. Her comments "I am so very happy to have received this blessing from Servant Ministries. My heart's desire is that God will bless you greatly."
Victoriana Huales is 59 years ago and has been a widow for various years. She works in the fields doing agricultural work and usually earns about $35 a month. She has been living with a daughter-in-law since her house collapsed a few years ago. She had been unable to rebuild but she now has a place to live. Her comments "May God bless the people that have donated to this project that has brought such blessing to so many people that have such few resources. May God also bless Sister Nancy for her support in this area."

Samaritan Project Update for Marimba

Rafaela Mendoza Esquivel is 60 years old and has been a widow for 4 years since his husband was killed. She works doing agricultural work and makes an average of $50 a month. Her house was in very poor condition and when it rains, the water leaked inside. Her comments "I am very thankful to Servant Ministries for the help that I have received. I hope that this project continues and is able to help many more families in need."
Julia Amador is 38 years old, married and has 2 children. She was chosen as a candidate for the Samaritan Project because the family was left homeless. We had very heavy rains this year. Her house was too close to the river and when the river rose, it was washed away. The family lost everything and was left on the street. The pastor from the Marimba church reached out to her and offered to help rebuild for the family on land that was further from the river. Her comments "I am happy and grateful for the help that we received. May God bless everyone that made this assistance possible."

Below is a table that shows how many people have been helped through this Samaritan Project through our Servant Ministries churches partnering and working together to impact people in their communities; showing the love of God in a tangible and practical way!
