Oaxaca, Mexico is a poverty-stricken region where children live in poverty and suffer from malnutrition, abandonment, and more. Forward Edge International (an organization that partners to aid vulnerable children, disaster victims, and those who travel to serve them) has created a program assisting at-risk children in the Oaxaca area, "Trigo y Miel". (Click HERE for more info regarding Forward Edge & the program in Oaxaca.)
On Sunday, December 4th, we partnered with Forward Edge to help support the children and ministry taking place in Oaxaca with the launch our 2016 Oaxaca Christmas Project. During this event we contributed funds for winter clothing and personalized small gifts for over 100 children living in Oaxaca via an exciting and festive process. Everyone enjoyed Christmas games and activities as we worked together to show these children the love of Jesus. (To view photos from the day's event, click HERE.)
Thank you to everyone who gave their time and contributed to the event, making it a huge success!
Missed the day of our project? There's still an opportunity for you to write a letter to a child in Oaxaca! Additional ornaments containing a child's photo and bio will be available for pick-up this Sunday at our Main Gathering.
