May 2010 – Land Rights and True Freedom

land rights and true freedom

Chicos Vivos is expanded to the community of Las Mercedes as Jake and Renee work with the community leaders to try to attain land rights for the people of that community. This is a marginalized community with no school, no land rights, and no recognition. Their church, Iglesia Buenas Nuevas, introduces the people of Jocotillo to a Gospel that is about justice and hope for Jocotillo and Guatemala just as much as it is about getting to heaven! Like us they believe the Gospel of Jesus is very much about life before you die!
