We are already halfway through 2022, and God is at work here on the border. For all of us, the past two years have been filled with challenges, grief, and disappointment. But the morning has come, and joy has arrived!
Since the start of the year, we have had close to 100 people come down to Reynosa to volunteer with us, to lay blocks on a house side-by-side, to worship together, and to show God’s love to their brothers and sisters. We are finally seeing each other’s smiles again, embracing each other with hugs, and only one word can describe it: JOY.
We are on track to build 30 houses this year, which is an amazing increase from the 18 we built last year. It’s yet another indication of the life-giving joy that has returned to the ministry in the form of church groups and volunteers.
Our grocery package program, in which we distribute 150 packages each month to families in Reynosa, Miguel Alemán, and Monterrey, is now a permanent part of the ministry. But what’s most important isn’t the groceries themselves; it’s what they represent. We always take the opportunity to pray over the families receiving them, and we share with them that the packages will last about 15 days, but the love of God will last forever.
We have been able to add several new staff members so far this year, which has improved the day- to-day operations of the ministry in so many ways. Programs such as construction, scholarships, the medical clinic, and children’s nutrition, as well as the administration of the ministry and maintenance of our facilities, run smoother, allowing us to bless more families.
As you can see, these are exciting times at Faith Ministry, and we thank you for being a part of it. Without the support of people like you, the stability and growth that we are experiencing would not be possible.
We need your help to keep this going. God has many more plans ahead for Faith Ministry, and we know that He will work in wonderful ways through the rest of the year and into 2023. Join us for what’s ahead – physically here on border, financially, through prayer – and let’s continue to make a difference together. Scroll down to find some ways that you can help.
We cannot thank you enough for your support and friendship; it truly means so much. Dios te bendiga!
