Maria De Jesus is 86 years old and lives alone in a tiny house on the side of a steep, rocky hill on the edge of Galeana, NL, Mexico. Her mind is still sharp as a tack, but she has trouble walking even with the homemade cane. A True Path Ministry team that included Tonyia, Stephen and Martin recently went to visit and pray with her. We also took a “Blessing Bag” with some essentials such as cooking oil, beans, rice, sugar, tortillas, tolet paper, cookies and eggs.
When we arrived she said in Spanish to Martin “I just prayed to God you would come back to see me and you are here.” She was overjoyed to have us visit and our hearts were filled with the love of Jesus too. Martin and Stephen met Maria when we picked her up to go to the ribbon cutting for Nuevo Corazon Galeana (New Heart) ministry (see story Feeding the Elderly in Galeana, July 12). She is a special lady who loves people, but she seldom has visitors. She is very materially poor, but her spirit is strong.
We’ll continue to check on her regularly, its one of our callings here. Loving and caring for everyone is what we Christians are called to do. All glory to God!
If you would like to donate money for a Blessing Bag (each bag cost about $20 US dollars) to give to Maria and others like her – see our “Support” page. Also, please say a prayer that the Lord will bless Maria.
