Working with Porch de Salomon is already proving to be a life changing experience for us. Each day we are discovering more about this organization and what we do for the surrounding community of Panajachel. The other day I had the honor to visit a man named Pedro. He is an old man who lives up on one of the mountains.
Porch de Salomon’s Humanitarian aid director Noe Perez said he found Pedro half dead lying in his own Feces. He is deaf and almost blind. Our task when we arrived was to clean him and his place up. I was given the task of barber!
I never thought I was going to need hair cutting skills down here. But in this moment I felt like I was truly doing the work of Jesus. This was a man left for dead by his family. He was literally rotting away in his bed. After getting some food in his belly. We were able to stand him up and give him a haircut and a good shower.
We put up some fly traps as well to catch some of the flies.
PS. We are still in need of some monthly supporters in order to continue our work down here. If you believe in what we are doing please consider pledging your support. You can make a tax deductible donation here: http://porchdesalomon.org/contribution.cfm
