Reaching Out...Differently! (March/April 2020 Update)
As we all know, our world has changed drastically. People laid off from work, stores being closed until further notice, and being shut in our houses with very little contact to the ones we love. At least we know that the love of God never changes and is always here for us, even in the darkest of times!
Since all the churches here are closed, we've been doing our Kids Church online! We've been having a blast playing games, worshiping God, and learning all about faith and healing! I've even been able to drop off special prizes to the kids' houses! Through this small act, God's love is being shown to these amazing kids in ways we never would have imagined, and it's teaching the kids that there's nothing that can stop God's love!
Many, many families have been laid off work, and their jobs aren't helping them with any expenses during this time. I've been using the funds for Kids Church and the Kids Discipleship (since we aren't having these activities currently) to be able to help the families that have almost nothing right now. Some of you have also helped, and I can't thank you enough! We have helped 5 families already (including these two little guys below), and we're going to help even more! If you are able and would love to help a family during this difficult time, please click here to go to our PayPal and donate. Make sure to specify what the donation is for using the drop down box.
Today, April 30, is Kids Day here in Mexico! We've been doing Kids Week this week, where the kids have to put up a picture or video of them doing a certain challenge, like Crazy Hair Day, Backwards Day, and Twin Day! We may not be able to see one another so much in person, but we can still have fun together! If you can, make sure to send a shout-out to the kids here on the Operation Worth's Facebook page!
Please keep all of the families in your prayers during this critical time. Please keep Dilan and his family in your prayers, as they lost their home because of the pandemic. Dilan's family has also been going through a lot, with Dilan's uncle and grandma passing away and the whole family going through sickness. Pray that God's love shines through all the hurt and pain, and that they know that God wasn't the one who did this, but the devil who comes to kill, steal, and destroy. God's love triumphs over all!
"The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly." - John 10:10
