Our Mission: We are servants of God by serving others. We share a responsibility to bring God's love to hurting people. We are an outreach fellowship of believers dedicated to showing the people of the Yucatan Peninsula, through our teaching, actions and love, the life changing power of Jesus Christ.
We are back from our summer vacation and ready to share the weekly news and excitement with you.
If you are considering a commodity donation to Casa Hogar para Ninos Esperanza, here are some items that are currently needed:
1. Milk / Cheese / Eggs
2. Children’s clothes and shoes (any size-any gender)
3. Blankets (winter will be here soon)
If you are in Cancun and have a clothing donation for our children, contact Cherilyn for sorting and sizing.
The Wayne Shaw family, Mission Partners from Kansas, have blessed us with another donation for Casa Hogar Food Fund. Please keep the Shaw family in your prayers.
Financial donations have also been received from the Abe and Gloria Derksen family in Canada (CH Christmas Fund) and Teresa Weatherly (CH Food Fund) in Texas. Both have been loyal and faithful Mission Partners and we could not do our work without them.
With the financial help of our worldwide Mission Partners, over the past several weeks, volunteers from Cancun Christian Fellowship continued to provide weekly supplies of eggs, cheese, chicken, chorizo, beef, pork, ham and turkey lunchmeat, hotdogs, boxed drinks and milk to our Cancun Christian home. Groceries are purchased and delivered every Wednesday. Our grocery list has changed slightly to accommodate the children’s return to school. If you would like to make a donation to the Casa Hogar Food Fund, please contact Cherilyn or Tom.
Matthew 25: 35 for I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, 36 I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.' 37 Then the righteous will answer him, 'Lord, when did we see thee hungry and feed thee, or thirsty and give thee drink? 38 And when did we see thee a stranger and welcome thee, or naked and clothe thee? 39 And when did we see thee sick or in prison and visit thee?' 40 And the King will answer them, 'Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brethren, you did it to me.'
Great news … with the help and generosity of our Community of Faith Cancun English Service partners, we were able to make a meaningful financial donation to the COF Houston East African Relief Effort. Community of Faith Houston will be raising $120,000.00 to purchase and deliver food and water to starving people Ethiopia, Somalia and Kenya.
We want to start a Mission Partner photo album on our website. Mission Partners, for this to work, you need to send us a picture of you and/or your family. We look forward to receiving and posting them. Please email them to firstname.lastname@example.org. So far, none of our Mission Partners have forwarded a photograph (why not be the first). We are very proud of you and we want to share our pride with the world.
The Wednesday morning and Thursday evening Christian Ladies’ Groups have resumed their normal schedules and you are invited to attend. Contact Cherilyn Martin for additional information. email@example.com.
We have started planning for the children’s Christmas at Casa Hogar, our Cancun Christian home. We want this year’s activities to be even better than last and we are asking for your ideas and financial assistance. You can sponsor a child’s Christmas joy with a $50.00 donation (and we could really use your help). To see last year’s Christmas activities, go to www.cancunchristianfellowship.com and click on the gallery. We could also use your help at the Casa Hogar Christmas Party. To volunteer, contact Tom or Cherilyn.
That’s it for today…SEE YOU NEXT SUNDAY!!!
