Mission Mexico Update 2011

Mission Mexico Update
Dear Sisters & Brothers

WOW!! I was waiting for summer to begin, when I realized that the 4th of July has already passed me by. Had a great aunt – age 94 that told me that as I got older, time would pick up speed. Gets’ much faster and I’m not sure I’ll be able to “hang on”.

When you get this, it will be only a short time, until the last of the summer vacations will be taken, spontaneous visits to ice cream parlor will be drawing to a close, and getting ready for the new school year will be starting. As you finish shopping at garage sales, cleaning out closets of the old & too small clothes, or start shopping for school supplies. Please remember the needs to our sister congregations along the border. Also you fill find an opportunity to help support families with your cash donations. Pr Pedro Gonzalez has a note that I hope that many of you will be able to take advantage of – Samaritan Fund. (Elsewhere in newsletter) Would ask that you send your donations for this fund, directly to Pr. Gonzalez. Mission Ministry is always changing and this is one way that change is meeting the needs of families.

When you talk with individuals for other faith communities, please invite them to join with us as we strive those along the border. If they need more information, just let someone on the Mission with Mexico board know of the need. We’d be happy to help out.

Dates for your calendars: Late October we will be taking a trailer load of donations to the border. Mission Trip dates – 2012 February 25 / March 3-4, 2012

As the violence continues, Pr Gonzalez continues to ask for our prayer support. That they would have safe travel across the border and that the message of Jesus Christ will continue to spread.

As always, if you have questions or comments, Please let me know. Mr. Mission with Mexico – Arlan Bergquist
