Literally, new doors are opening as Nuevo Corazon Galeana continues to grow in numbers. Sandra, Patricia, Lourdes and Ana prepared over thirty meals on Tuesday (August 9th). That number has increased over the past month from a beginning of about twenty. The program delivers healthy meals to the poor, elderly and infirm around the community. But it has also grown to meet other spiritual and physical needs – in Jesus’ name.
“We always pray for the meals before we deliver them,” said Martin. This week the delivery crew was Pastor Reynaldo, Martin and Stephen. In one home they discovered an elderly lady had fallen several days earlier and the wound needed attention (see A Divine Appointment). In another home a family asked for prayer for a man who was very close to death.
We also met Pastor Santiago’s sister who is from the extremely remote mountain village Refugio. Some of you may recall the True Path Ministry team has been to see him a couple of times (see Remote Refugio Visit for Worship, Clothing, Food and Encouragement).
Also, new Christian relationships have been started or strengthened among the volunteers. The helpers change each week. We have had some of the kid’s helping us here lately as they are out of school now. Various adults also show up to assist and are always welcomed.
Once all the meals are delivered and any walk-ins are fed we sit down as a team. It’s like a weekly fiesta as we share the day’s stories and poke fun at each other. Christ is at the center of everything we do. Matthew 20:28 just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.” We are so grateful to be a part of what Jesus is doing here. Please continue to pray for us and the work of Jesus.
