I know what I’m doing this summer.

Foundation for His Ministry is a ministry that has served the poor in Mexico for over 40 years in several locations. The ministry’s Baja location began as an orphanage, but has grown to a multi-faceted ministry that is serving it’s community in whatever way it can.

This is Lorena. She came to the Baja orphanage last year, when her mother could no longer provide for her. Lorena’s future is not clear, but for now she is thriving in a place where adults love on her, teach her, and provide a sense of security. At Christmas, each of our kids received a picture of Lorena as a gift, as our family is now sponsoring part of Lorena’s care.

In July, we are going to meet Lorena. A group of 35 people from our church will travel to Mexico to serve at the Baja ministry location. Groups like ours come year round to provide support to those who work in these locations by doing ‘dirty work’…. mundane tasks…. whatever….. so that those who are there to care for the kids can spend their time doing that.

Our kids will be the only children in our group. They are tremendously excited. Our prayer is that as a result of this trip, they will have a view of a bigger world, a heart filled with more of God’s love, and hands and feet propelled to help those who are hopeless.
