On a personal level our vehicles need repairs. Our gasoline bill is our single largest expense. Shuttling
food into Mexico in small quantities may be a thing of the past with bridge fees at $5.50 a trip, and the ever increasing
price of gasoline , and getting only about 10 miles per gallon on my truck and van.
We are as always, thankful for the support we have, but we feel if we share soome of our concerns we can
do a better job at the work God has called us to. Many of you have told me that you would like to know what our needs are
so you can help.
Some of our most pressing needs are:
* 4 cylinder truck or car.
* Older van in good shape
* Spaghetti or other pastas
* Personal care items (shampoo, toothpaste, toothbrushes, etc.
* Tuition support for children
* Support for our soup kitchen workers ( two at $25 per week for each.)
* Funds for supplies and food to continue operating our soup kitchens
With your specific donations we have helped with all or part of tuition for 15 children who would otherwise
not be in school. With that sponsorship we also help with uniforms, shoes, etc. Below is a picture of the kids lined up ready
for school. Kids have to pay bus fare to attend school and even this small amount they are unable to pay so we take them to
school when possible. At the beginning of each school year we also collect and hand out school supplies, pencils, notebooks,
backpacks, etc. We also transport kids to church 3 times a week.
