The True Path Ministry Inc. Christmas-time kid’s blessing trips have begun. The team made its way to extremely remote Refugio on Wednesday, December 27. About 50 kids and 30 adults showed up at Pastor Seldonia’s house for worship and fellowship. It was a joyful and Christ honoring time under the cedar limb covered patio. Each child received a special prayer and a present. They were extremely grateful.
Larry and Belinda Bookman came down from Bandera, Texas to help us during this very busy week. They drove to the border where Tonyia and Stephen met up with them to drive them on to Galeana. It had been many years since either one had been to Mexico. It was a pleasant uneventful drive. They were especially in awe of the mountains through which we drive during the last hour of the trip.
We got up early the next morning to meet Martin, Ana and Yessi to make the three-hour drive deep into the mountains near Refugio. The team took the ministry 1995 Suburban loaded with gifts and clothing. We also took our Ford Edge.
Yessi, who teaches at our weekly kid’s club meetings, treated the children to a fun time of games, crafts and singing during the adult service time. They rejoined the service and praised the Lord in front of the adults through the motions to a song they had just learned. The Pastor and the True Path Ministry team prayed for each child as the congregation lifted up the group. It was a moving time in the presence of the Lord.
After the spirit-filled worship service each child was given a gift. It was so much fun to see the joy on the kids’ faces as they peaked in the bags – they seldom get anything beyond essentials.
Piles of clothing and shoes were laid on tarps for the adults to pick up for their families. We also handed out reading glasses after testing which strength would work best. Many of them can now see to read their Bibles.
It was a great day serving the LORD!!!
