Latin American Charity Dinner

One of Alex's primary teachers, Maria Govea, found out a couple of years ago that she had cancer. Even though Alex was a handful for her since he was 11 and then 12 when he was in her class, he really liked having her as a teacher. The thing that I remember most that she taught him was when one of her friends was sick and she asked the class to pray for her. Alex prayed for several weeks until he finally asked how she was doing. He found out that she was better and learned so much from praying for someone.

Maria went through all the cancer treatments and it went into remission. Unfortunately, not long after, they found cancer again. She has since moved from our ward, but she is still loved. She is not doing well, but we are hopeful. Many ladies (and probably some men too) are donating food for a Latin American dinner (and dessert!). Come and donate to a wonderful cause and eat some gooooood food. I will be dropping food off, but can't stay since I have to be somewhere else, but I hope you can come!

(Sorry I don't have a photo of Maria!)

  1. What a kind thing to do! I think it helps when people care so much. I really wish I could be there. Since I cannot, I will most certainly keep her in my prayers!

  2. I had some of that Latin American food at one of the fund raisers and what I had was delicious! I hope she does OK. I have somewhere to be that night too. Wish I could be there.

  3. The power of prayer is so real, and I am glad your son got to witness that. I hope your friend recovers.

  4. You're always helping so many different people out. You're a great example of Christ like love.
