CHILDREN’S NUTRITION PROGRAM
We recognized a need in our communities that kids were not getting the food they needed each day. To address that need, we started a children’s nutrition program in Reynosa, and it’s now grown to four different areas: Reynosa, Miguel Alemán, Naranjito and a mission outside of Miguel Alemán called Guardados de Arriba. In total, we serve up to 200 meals each week, and in Reynosa, we’ve even expanded to include senior citizens and other patients waiting to be seen at the clinic. Physical nourishment is just one part of this program; we also want the children to be nourished spiritually. Our pastors spend time there each week, teaching the kids Bible lessons and songs and doing crafts with them. When groups from the U.S. are visiting Reynosa, they also have the chance to participate in this program, which is a great experience for all.
