We are raising money to bless families one child at a time by providing gifts, blankets, jackets, and meals for Christmas. Right now we have 140 children who have never experienced Christmas like this before. We are also raising money to build an orphanage that will hold 30 children. Can you help? 100% goes to the ministry. Any donation helps.
I remember walking down a busy inner city street of Juarez, Mexico. I was enjoying a leisure time using my U.S. Dollars to take advantage of the savings. Right now it is $1 to $18 pesos. As I looked around I saw young children juggling in the streest, shining shoes, selling chiclets (small bits of gum), women with their children on the streets begging for money and I began to feel disgusted with myself. As I walked around a back alley, which is not safe, I found a small child about 3 years old, alone and passed out face down on a pile of rocks. As I thought to do something, thinking he was dead, he woke up and ran off frightened. No parents in site. It was then that the Lord pressed on my heart to do something.
This ministry is dedicated to helping families in Juarez, Mexico by touching children’s lives first. We are partnered with small orphanages in the Juarez county small towns of Loma Blanca, Waterfill and Guadalupe.
The need for food and water in these areas is unfathomable. During the drug wars between 2008 - 2012 which claimed over 3,700 lives in just one of those years, many children were left orphaned and abandoned. Local churches have tried to help but only bring in $6 a week to help. That is where we come in.
This year one of the orphanages are losing their location. 19 children will be out on the street. We are trying to build a home for them to all live in before winter hits the area. There are no heaters. No water. We need your help!
We are raising funds to build the home and give Christmas gifts, blankets, jackets and heaters to over 100 children in the area.
