Help Our Teens love kids in Mexico!

As we drove off from the dusty ministry site that last day and turned the corner, we saw three of the tween boys who joined us the whole week standing and waving at us.  Not able to contain our sadness, we stopped and gave them our final hugs as we watched tears fall from their eyes.  Goodbyes are always  hard to do but it was beautiful to know that our teens made such a powerful impact.

That bond of love was undeniable as we all made the resolve to go back and let more kids know that Jesus loves them.

So this JULY 22-28, our teenagers are going back to the same town of San Rafael in Ensenada, Mexico with the prayer that the same kids and more come to join us. For we have learned that no language barrier can ever stop love from binding us together.

We will be singing songs, teaching the kids and their parents, doing arts and crafts, feeding them snacks and lunch, playing games and throwing a backpack giveaway at the end of the week... just in time for school. We can't wait!

Our teenagers are excited to go back. They seem to have overlooked the long waits in the border, the uncomfortable tents, the lines for the toilet, the sketchy shower stalls because all they talk about are the kids and how God moved in their lives.


Here's our BUDGET:
Van Rental                                                         $1142
Backpacks/School Supplies (100)            1200  
Ministry Supplies                                                 500
Food  (kids and parents)                                   400  
Portable Potty                                                       200
Camp Supplies                                                       300
Van/Truck Mexican Insurance                      120
 Gas                                                                              500
Translator                                                                220
TOTAL                                                                 $4582                     

All of this was made possible last year by your prayer and financial support and we really need them again.

We realize that it takes a community to build a community so we shamelessly ask that you partner with us in making this outreach possible.

We appreciate every bit of sacrifice and pray that God immensely bless you back with more.
