Please pray for this family ..The Xurek Familia

"A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in his holy dwelling." Psalm 68:5

The Xurek family, has 7 children in the family.

We(Mayan Families) sponsor three of these children to go to school. There are 5 boys and 2 girls. They are all young. no. 6 child is malnourished and we have that child receving milk from the feeding program.

~ As many of my blog readers know we sponsor a little boy from Guatemala named Daniel through a AMAZING organization Called Mayan Families here is the site

They sent this URGENT request out for this dear family who's father was gunned down in Guatemala on Friday Morning...7 children are now left without their father and no income...

They live in a wooden shack with a dirt floor. They pay $33 a month to live here....

~They have no tables or chairs.

~They have one bed for all of them

The coffin is $293 and the burial plot is $160. They had to take out a VERY high loan to pay for the fathers funeral.
