We have had the opportunity to do some amazing outreaches these last few months. At Christmas, we had two different families contact us after reading our blog. They were coming to Cozumel on vacation and wanted to help. They wanted their children to experience giving and be part of the mission field. The only day that they were both available was Christmas Eve. It was perfect. God laid it on our hearts to bless the people in the squatter’s village of Las Fincas. At first, it was just about giving them a rotisserie chicken meal to add to their Christmas Eve dinner. Then God made it into a community outreach. We invited a local church to join us and give a Christmas service. They are currently building a church in Las Fincas and it gave them the perfect opportunity to reach out to the community. We set up right in the middle of the muddy street.
Many people came out to meet us and several people received prayer. The chickens were like the fish and loaves, we had such an abundance that after the service as we drove back to town we handed them out to families along the road. That day we gave out over 200 meals to needy families, but most importantly, we saw the work of the Lord in people’s lives, and the people received the Word of God.
Today, our church will be hosting another outreach. We are reaching out to the children in the neighborhood with a family movie night. Last week we started promoting it, handing out flyers in the park and surrounding areas. What the volunteers shared with us, after handing out flyers, burdened our heart. Twelve year old kids were stumbling around drunk in the park. A couple of 14 year olds were in the outhouse smoking weed. What is happening? These are kids the same age as ours. Their hearts are sweet. They are there with homemade kites trying to fly them, crying when they break. But are being lured into darkness. It is our hope to provide them with a place to come. A place to learn about Jesus and the hope and promises that He gives us. Please pray for our outreach and these precious children.
