A glimpse of our week in Mexico!
Quick links to the other parts this week:
This will be our last big food distribution until Christmas! We give families in need non-perishable pantry staples once a month. It’s a win-win for those we serve and for us. A crisis mindset happens to those in extreme poverty, and worrying about your next meal every week is a terrible way to live. And we get to buy in larger bulk, and package things up once a month instead of every week.
Here is our volunteer’s granddaughter helping unpack the delivery
And, all packed up into bags for each family
Because there is no Thanksgiving holiday here, there’s nothing to focus on before Christmas! Most families will put up Christmas decorations the day after Dia de Muertos. So we’re doing some Christmas crafts this week and gathering branches to make tabletop trees next week. The families we serve don’t have the resources for a Christmas tree, so we make them with the kids! We recycle jars and canisters and place a tree branch inside with rocks, then make paper ornaments for it! Using branches is a good tie-in to Jesus is the Branch in Zechariah!
And that’s our week in Mexico! Thank you for all your prayers!
