Imagine what our generosity will do in Mexico’s Rancho Santa Marta. These are children coming from the streets of Mexico or whose parents will not care for them and are left to fend for themselves. There are also children with disabilities that are not able to be helped by Mexico’s social welfare system. This is truly loving the “least of these.”

God is in This Place
We are serving well at Santa Marta. It was a mild 115 on Sunday, only 95 with a cool breeze! Thank you for all of your prayers. We are working on Victor House, which will become permanent housing for a few older residents. It’s hard manual labor, but such a blessing for this ministry and for us, as we represent Jesus in our serving! We are in God’s country and doing God’s work, taking care of his children. We are so blessed to live in the United States. Even though we have 5-minute military showers, yucky tasting water and no air conditioning…it’s still an AWESOME experience!

Truly Life Changing
We spent the day with the children of Santa Marta. The joy and happiness gleaned from their eyes as they play together on the playground. I could hear laughter and giggles. The simple things like a gentle smile or hug fill them up. God’s presence and love are here. This experience has been truly life changing.
“Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.” Matt 25:11
Look at what you did, Bayside!!
