We were so blessed this year by Heaven in Sight, a ministry that sends a team of doctors and dentists to different parts of the world. Throughout the week, the children at our home and daycare got much needed medical attention. Alfredo, Cristian, and Carmen were able to get dental surgery, Avilenne got a cataract surgery, and a number of the children were able to get medical consults. We are so grateful for our friends at Heaven in Sight. They radiate the love of God to our community.
This summer, we have had the privilege to get to know and work with Missy Lewis and Michele Matheny from a local ministry called Welcome Home Outreach (http://welcomehomeoutreach.org). They helped us so much at the daycare by coming to work with us and by sending groups to volunteer with the kids. We are so grateful for these two godly women and the friendship that has developed in the last few months. We look forward to working more with them and our other friends at Welcome Home Outreach.
This week, a group that was staying at Welcome Home Outreach built us a beautiful shed for all of the therapy equipment that was donated last month. These amazing people worked so hard and finished the shed in three days! Thank you so much for your time and generosity! And thank you, Neri and Welcome Home Outreach, for facilitating this. You are such a blessing to Eternal Anchor!
- Please pray for staff members Steve and Stella as they spend time with their friends and family back home and as they share Eternal Anchor with churches and small groups. Pray that they get some well-deserved rest and that they come back refreshed.
- Please continue to pray for God’s provision for Eternal Anchor. Pray for more people and churches to join Eternal Anchor’s financial support team so we can hire more staff and reach out to more children with special needs. Every week, more families show up at the daycare looking for help for their children with special needs. With the staff we have, we are nearing capacity so we hope to be able to hire staff soon. We are also praying that God sends more quality volunteers from the U.S. and Canada. If you or someone you know is interested in coming to Mexico and joining us as Eternal Anchor staff, please email us at email@example.com.
- Please pray for a speedy process as we register our orphanage with the federal government. Pray for wisdom and energy for Deborah as she handles all of the legal paperwork and procedures.
