Not long after I moved to NC I was introduced to Bill Cummings, founder of Lemonade International. Lemonade is a U.S. based non-profit that works in partnership with Guatemalan leaders to help bring restoration to the largest urban slum in Central America - "La Limonada." Bill and his wife Cherie have grown to love this place and have committed their lives to bringing attention and relief to some of the world's poorest people. On the ground in La Limonada is a woman named Tita Evertsz. It was her love and sacrifice for the people of this city that originally captured Bill and Cherie's hearts. Tita's story is incredible. So incredible in fact, that it recently caught the attention of a group of film makers.

On Thursday, May 5 the movie "Reparando" will have a special screening in Raleigh, where Tita Evertsz herself will be present. I would strongly encourage you to purchase tickets here and go hear about the incredible ways in which hope is rising in the slums of Guatemala.
