Dear Mission of LOVE friends and volunteers,
I am hoping that you will hear and respond to my plea of compassion for our three upcoming Missions of Love building and medical missions. Mission of Love volunteers will be traveling to Guatemala and Pine Ridge Native American Indian Reservation South Dakota, April 23 and June 4 and July 31 to continue our work of LOVE. In the last twelve months, over 500 Mayan patients were treated, 23 children received cleft palate surgeries, three Denton Mission of Love C5 airlifts, ( 211,000 pounds of AID ) one school bus, 2 Denton forty foot containers, and over two hundred Mission of Love building and medical volunteers, 90 patients were given hearing aids, 12,200 pounds of corn, four golden retriever puppies were bought and sent to service the handicap and blind children, and so much more was accomplished in order to be of service to our friends in WAY-bi, Tecpan Guatemala.
Know that we are coming to the final stages of building WAY-bi House of Dreams in Tecpan, Guatemala. We have sent furnishings and medical furnishings and supplies to establish a dental and clinic, and a Women’s pottery and sewing co-op and also have adopted an orphanage who needs our help. The need is great and we together can and will continue to SERVE those who are within our reach.
April 23, I will be traveling back to Tecpan, Guatemala with a few Mission of Love volunteers to try to help with the completion of WAY-bi and hopefully have the grand opening early summer for the dying children in need. I am asking for monetary donations to hire local people to work with Juan and his crew to help with the hospice, medical and dental building completion. In turn, we will furnish money to the community in order for the workers to help their families survive.
June 4, I will be traveling back to the Pine Ridge Native American Indian Reservation in South Dakota to furnish and build a home for a Native American Family of seven. I remember meeting Vic and he was so excited to find at the dump a broken down set of steps, that he repaired in order to just get in and out of his metal trailer that had no windows. He never complained and would never ask but I know in my heart that we need, as the Mission of Love family to make a home a reality for Vic and his family in June. I intend to raise $ 10,000 to purchase the building materials in Rapid City, S.D, have them delivered to the site and within four days have the home completed with the help of ALL.
I am not one for asking for money but I am at the stage where I am in need of your help so that our Mission of LOVE can and will continue with these needy projects at hand, not for me but for the people who are lacking the basic human rights.

~ As if in confirmation of the synchronicity of life, two years have passed already from the " unique moment of God " when Kathy and her friends that conform Mission of LOVE came to our hospital ( Metropolitan ). They came to Guatemala as on many other occasions with the good news for our children to help transform their lives through cleft lip and cleft palate surgeries. With great enthusiasm and responsibility we accepted to accommodate our pilgrim brothers without knowing the impact this would cause on our lives and the spirituality it would raise that would then be the motor that began to make our dreams come true.
WAY-Bi and the " House of Dreams " became a reality. One of its objectives is to host terminally ill children, where they and their parents will be served in a peaceful place, surrounded by nature; to accompany them on this journey, full of tears, pain, and wisdom and above all LOVE. A second objective is to use the shelter as a refuge and place of therapy for children victims of violence and abuse.
Without the intervention of Mission of LOVE led by Kathy Price this would still be a dream. WE have been blessed this year with five marvelous Mission of LOVE groups of volunteers that have joined forces with WAY-Bi volunteers to make great advance in the construction of the House of Dreams. Volunteers are such a blessing to us; they sacrifice so much in order to be of service for the children in need and help us conclude this extraordinary project." ~ Doctor Edgar Moran / For more information go to our Mission of LOVE web site www.missionoflove.org

In Search of Success- Mission of Love Mission Statement
To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends;
to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.
