Grocery prep for families in need
Groceries bagged up and ready to bring to families!
If you saw our Christmas outreach post, you’ll remember that the refugee camp we serve has exploded with new families in the last month!
We have a regular monthly order with our warehouse grocery store. After the overload of new refugees last month, we didn’t know how to proceed for this month. How do we do it now? So we kept our regular amounts and then waited to see what more we’d need. Because the refugee camp can be temporary, so we didn’t know how many would be there until we showed up. Many are trying to either get employment and stability here, or to get permission to enter the US to be with family.
So we packed up all the groceries you see above and went there first. And… it took all we had to help all who were in need there. So we’re now scrambling to get groceries for those in the other areas we serve too!
We always try to bring treats for the kids! Being in need is scariest for them. And these little ones have lost everything. Donuts and chips and chocolate milk won’t change that, but it does give them something that isn’t just a need met—because the Lord is generous beyond our needs. We love showing that He cares about the little things that bring delight too.
Please pray for our kids and our community. One of the dads of our kids was killed this week. It was a cartel hit gone wrong—he was mistaken for someone else. The National Guard had already moved into the elementary school as a show of force/protection of our community, because of increased issues nearby. The whole community is shaken. Please pray
And that’s our week in Mexico! Thank you for all your prayers!
