We hope that this letter finds you and your loved ones safe, happy, and healthy. We pray that your year so far has been filled with hope and peace as you trust in our mighty God.
Here on the border, summer is in full swing. The trees are green, the sun is shining, and the flowers are blooming. Hope is in the air.
Finally, finally, after 16 months of a life dramatically different than what we were used to, we are seeing hope.
We are seeing more and more people on the border, and around the world, receive their vaccines, and we are seeing case counts go down. We are seeing long-awaited reunions, including our friends from the U.S. with our Mexican staff and volunteers. We are finally seeing hope.
But if we look back on these past 16 months, we’ll realize that God’s light, His hope, was there all along, even when our world seemed so dark that we couldn’t see it.
Hope was there in the ways that we showed up to help one another, to lend a hand to those most affected by the pandemic. Hope was there in the ways that we stayed connected, united, even when we couldn’t be together. Hope was there in how you continued to support a ministry like ours, allowing us to share that same hope with the families most in need here in Mexico.
That support enabled us to start 2021 off strong, knowing that the effects of the pandemic were nowhere near over. So far this year, we have distributed around 900 grocery packages to families in Reynosa, Miguel Alemán, and nearby Monterrey. We have built seven houses in Mexico, our eighth is underway, and we have at least another nine that will be built by the end of the year. Our programs to provide nutrition to children and infants, as well as medical care to the community, are still going strong, and our churches are back to worshipping in person.
And because Faith Ministry is all about the relationships, perhaps the biggest sign of hope is that our schedule for the fall is full of visiting mission work groups. Finally. God is good!
Even as we are starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel, as we take steps toward normalcy and welcome people back, the devastating impact that the past 16 months has had on our border communities is far from over.
The economy was hit hard, and the price of goods, like food, materials, and other supplies, is higher than
ever, while wages have stayed the same, and countless people have not recovered from job loss. ere are
still families struggling to put food on the table, and others that still don’t have a solid roof over their
There is still much hope to be shared.
We know that there will always be uncertainties along the way, and because of that, we need to be strong and active for the families we serve. Your support helps us do that.
We will keep sharing God’s hope here in Mexico – will you join us?
