Happy weekend everyone! ♥

I’m so excited to share our week with you!

Groceries to families in need

This week, we delivered groceries to the far away areas we serve! The families below live in an area pretty far inland, through ranch land, and fields.

This mom and her two kids are new here. They came from a much poorer area in mainland Mexico and she came here hoping to have a better life for her kids and immediately enrolled her daughter in the local school. In the ranch areas, we always struggle to help families put their kids in school. Most of the adults work in the fields and the older kids end up working there too or tending their younger siblings. We were so excited when this mom was already focused on her daughter’s education. It’s so hard to look to the future when the present is so challenging. She doesn’t have the ability to get her daughter a uniform or any school supplies, so we are so grateful to help!

Groceries to the refugees

Then we continued north to the refugee camp to bring groceries to the families there. We always bring extra goodies for the kids when we bring groceries! Small extras are always so special to kids who have experienced food scarcity, and so we love to bring treats they will think are special. We serve a God who gives more than enough. You can look at creation and see how God gives us an extravagant expression of joy and abundance, in the colors and diversity, in the sights and sounds. ♥

Our Escuelita— our after school kids’ group!

Our House build

Thank you so much for always keeping our group in prayer! One of the workers fell off the ladder coming down from the roof yesterday, and landed with his side on the side of the concrete slide.

You can see the slide for the concrete in the pic below. The ladder was to the side of it and he was coming down the ladder facing out with his back to the ladder. The weight faceing outward tipped it too much and he fell forward, with his side landing on the side of the metal concrete slide.

His side went purple quickly and his wife was just down the road so she came and took him to get it checked out. He didn’t think he broke anything and thought he didn’t need to go to the doctor, but we were insistent. Thankfully nothing is broken! Safety for our construction crew is a daily prayer.
And he is back at the jobsite today! He says he is sore but fine.

It could have been so much worse. I was bringing my brother home from a doctor’s appointment when I got the call yesterday. All I could think of was how Sandi fell off a ladder while they were finishing her roof, completely broke her ankle, and is barely beginning to be able to walk more than a few steps. And it’s been four months. I’m so grateful this one ended up being so much less severe. Thank you, everyone, so much for keeping our outreaches covered in prayer.

Thank you so much for praying with us for those we serve together!
