We had such a blast celebrating Christmas with the children and their families at the community center. The parents worked hard to make sure there was plenty of delicious food. And the children were amazing playing the different parts in the nativity play. Thank you to everyone who helped plan and prepare for the party. And a special thank you to John and Jeanne Conca and their friends who donated gifts for each of the children.
A few days ago, we took the boys to Ensenada to celebrate Jesus' birthday. He really enjoyed his first trip to the movie theater!
Thank you to the sponsors who donated money to give to their sponsor child's family for Christmas. We were able to pick up the families that were given gifts and take them shopping so they could prepare a tasty family meal for Christmas.
- We praise God for the $8445.25 that have been raised to pay off the land we are purchasing in Zapata. We are almost half way to reaching what we need to pay off the land completely! Please pray for donors to help us with this expense and pray for groups to raise money and come down this summer to help with construction. We currently have 5 groups confirmed to help with building. If you or someone you know is interested in coming or bringing a group, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Please pray for volunteers from the community and local churches to participate at the community center. We would love to develop more partnerships with the churches around us.
- Please pray that our staff enjoy the last week of rest before we start again.
