Thanks to the grace of God, and the numerous fundraising events and generous donations, Stacey and Joey’s mission trips to Mexico are FULLY FUNDED!
From June 2nd – 8th, 2012, my daughter Stacey and son Joey will be joining 19 others from our home church, Fairfield First Baptist, to provide hope in a world of brokenness to the children in orphanages near Monterrey, Mexico. The mission trip will be serving the children in 10 Christian Casa Hogar’s (Children’s Homes), and two churches in the Rio and Cadereyta communities. Each Children’s Home has 30 to 100 children ranging in ages from 10 months to 17 years. These children come to the homes from a variety of backgrounds – neglect, abuse, abandonment, and in some cases, economic inability of the parents to provide for them. Whatever the reason, each child is truly a gift from God. It is our hope that each child would have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, and have opportunities for a productive and meaningful life.
Their efforts will include:
- Construction work to improve the facilities, programs, and living conditions
- Sorting and preparing donations for the daily distribution to the children’s homes
- Sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ though interaction and relationship building
The group will be so privileged to be able to tell this broken community that there is a greater life they can live, and a greater love they can experience. That a life with Jesus can bring real fulfillment, purpose, and healing to the wounds they feel. We greatly appreciate those of you who chose to be a partner in this mission of going after lost and broken kids with a message of hope, as Jesus told his disciples, “I have told you these things so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world” John 16:33
