Mission Mexico — The Good Samaritan
I also want to ask for your help in a new project we started, its called The Good Samaritan, it consists of doing something for 3 poor families with necessities (they’re in the pictures I gave you last time you came) they struggle every day to have something to eat, in one of the families it is Ruth And her husband they have 5 kids, but they got taken away by the government a program called DIF (they are in charge of kids having a good life) sort of like CPS here in the U.S. they got taken away from her and her husband because she wouldn’t feed them. Someone pointed them out to the government and they sent the DIF members to check the lifestyle they had and realized it was not good for the kids. But now they are back with them thank God they were gone for about a month and the parents were very sad and cried a lot.
The DIF members told Ruth and her husband they will be back to check up on them and see how they were living by then, and this is why we want to help in some way. This is the reason why the Good Samaritan project was made. it consists of 31 good Samaritans that can donate 5 dollars a month. I will be going to a store that is in front of the church and tell the owner to give this family 5 dollars of groceries a day, no beer or cigarettes only food!. with these 5 dollars they will be able to get beans, rice, potatoes, tortillas, and make a meal for these 3 families. All 3 families live together, its the mother, and two daughters with their families. This way they will be assured to have a meal a day, for the good Samaritans 5 dollars is nothing a day but for them it is a warm meal that means everything to them, I have told the families from El Buen Pastor and till right now we have 15 families signed up for this. They already gave up their 5 dollars to start this the month of July, I am not sure how long we will be able to do this but it is better than nothing. If any of you would like to participate please let me know and every month I will be reminding you if you can’t keep participating not to feel bad.
The families that need assistance for The Good Samaritan are: Grandma’s name is Gloria. She is 59 years old and she has two daughters: Natividad is 37 years old & Ruth is 25 years old.
Natividad has 4 kids: Ivan is 21, Erica is 15, Carlos is 14, Gloria is 6 years old.
Ruth has 5 kids: Miguel is 8, Belen is 6, Daniel is 5, Gerardo is 3, Ricardo is 2 years old. Ruth’s husband is named Bernabe he is 34 years old & lives with her.
Greetings to everyone God Bless!
