Prayer & Praise
CHRISTmas Celebration- For those of you who were not able to attend our Christmas Celebration this year, we just want to say it was a great success and one to be remembered! First and foremost, we want to thank everyone who contributed in any way to make this celebration a very special time in the lives of all the children. OUr time was spent as one big family celebrating the birth of our Saviour and giving thanks for the many blessings that we received this past year!
This years CHRISTmas drama was written by the same actors (children) that performed it! This made the celbration unique and touching with a clear message of the reason for CHRISTmas: The birth of Jesus Christ.
And the Winner is...
Each year a contest takes place at MCH. All the children are encouraged to "create" a nativity scene by using only clay and cloth. This made it a little more challenging but the end results were amazing!
Financial Support – Please continue to Pray that God will continue to provide the necessary resources to continue to minister to the children at the Home and other locations in light of the reduced missionary service at the Home and in Matamoros. Praise God for His provision for 2013.
Construction Projects- Praise God! The new girls dorm finally has a new roof! Metal trusses were built and installed. The only remaining items before it is complete is the electrical, plumbing, and sheetrocking the ceiling.
Please continue to pray for everyone at the home and for continued financial support.
House Parents – Praise God for the house parents who are committed to the ministry and serving at the Home. They are an essential part of our ministry to the children.
Fund Raising Plan – Pray for Saul & Maria as they travel to keep supporters informed of the work the Home is doing. The Board acknowledged this was necessary in view of the inability of many to visit the Home with current problems in Mexico. In addition, the Board will be considering other options to advertise, inform and communicate with interested individuals and supporters.
Medical and Dental Mission Workers – Pray that God will continue to provide the medical and dental workers for mission service opportunities to the many mission sites in the interior of Mexico. Pray that the workers will be protected as they travel and serve. Pray for new partners that will serve and support the ministry. Hope for the Mexican People through Christ.
Saul & Maria – Pray that God will continue to bless them with His wisdom and insight as they direct the children and the activities at the Home. Pray that they can remain focused with God’s expanding vision for the Home. Pray for continued good health and strength for Maria.
Child Sponsorship – Pray that each child will be sponsored by an individual, group, church or organization. This will cover the cost of school tuition, books and uniforms.
MCH Clinic – Pray the clinic will receive adequate financial support, approximately $600/month, to minister to the needs of the community it serves as well as the residents of the Home. Continue to pray for physicians, dentists, nurses and hygienists who will serve at the home on a regular frequency.
