After 15 years of faithfully operating a weekly, then daily, Feeding Shelter, we are now in a new realm of serving. Due to a variety of reasons (drug war violence and death, poverty, alcoholism and drug abuse, prostitution, child abuse and neglect), we have now become an ORPHANAGE. The licensing process was begun in early 2019. We were informed that, due to the dire need in Juarez for orphaned children care), the orphanage can operate NOW while in process of final licensing.
Our most recent project was to build a dormitory at our Mission Center in Juarez. For 15 years, this location has operated as our main Feeding Shelter, serving over 1500 meals monthly. Due to the violent drug war in Mexico over the past 10 years, there are thousands of children (in Juarez alone! but throughout Mexico) who are now orphaned. We are caring for 35 children who are victims of neglect, abuse, dire poverty, alcohol and drug addicted parents, and noone to care for them. God has brought three dozen of these beautiful children into our care.
