Our outreaches continue in India and Mexico! And on the site, as always, we’re learning the Word. Continue reading for photos from our outreaches this week as well as a recap of all the posts on the site.

To get in the mood for Christmas

Read: Here are all Jack’s Christmas articles in one place! I’m still scheduling them to show up on the homepage, but now you can browse through them on your own whenever you like.

Our Outreaches this week

In Mexico, our kids’ group is busy helping us get ready for Christmas food distribution! They have gained such a sense of dignity through helping pack and distribute food to those in need. Most come from very needy families as well, (and will receive special Christmas groceries too!) and many were embarrassed to be the families that need help. The kids enjoy being able to give back and to help others who are even more in need than they are.  And it helps them see that there is no shame in receiving and that it’s so much fun to give!

In India, we’re busy preparing for Christmas outreaches too!


It has been so fun to see the creativity and skill grow in these kids! And now, the moms are joining in as well! They’re learning to read and create!
It’s hard to imagine from our lives of privilege, but it takes a great deal of confidence and dignity for this tribe to begin these projects. These are things that were denied them their whole lives, and the lives of their ancestors. It’s a privilege to have free time and resources to learn and to create. I’m so grateful they have that now. And I’m so proud of them for embracing new things and learning!

This week we gave out rice and milk powder to the families.

 

Our fellowship lunch:

We’re getting Bibles for each child in Mexico and India! In India, they arrived early and we just couldn’t wait until Christmas to give them. The kids show us how excited they are to have them in their huts and learn to read them together with their families.
