The Holidays are upon us, and Christmas and New Years Day is right around the corner! The winter in Mexico is very cold, sometimes even snowing! Thus, it can be extremely hard for many families living without a roof over their heads, such as those living in and around the city dump. Those families survive by scavenging the city dump for any recyclable goods that can be resold so that they might afford a piece of bread for their hungry families.
We are planning on our annual December trip to Mexico just south of the U.S. border to happen Dec 16-18. There we will provide hundreds of hungry families with hundreds of meals. Over 1500 children will receive a customized gift while our missionaries have a chance to evangelize to the people about Christ and what his love means to his children. We will also be handing out 300 warm blankets and over 500 warm hats to help the poor families get through yet another winter.
In Proverbs 22:9,
A generous man will himself be blessed, for he shares his food with the poor.
The Lord gives us one of the key secrets to being blessed, and that is by being a blessing to others in need. We are asking for prayers so that we may have a successful and safe trip.
