Wow…time sure has passed by fast.  We have been very busy but want to catch everyone up to date with all the ministry happenings of January and will post February Highlight this week too!

Project Fortify had the opportunity to work with the Rio Grande Bible Institute Winter Volunteers as they built a house in a colonia that doesn’t have water nor electricity.  It was a privilege to help out with the project. Thanks George and Bonnie Bladey for inviting us!

Once a month we serve a meal at the local dump in Reynosa, Mexico.  This month, several of the Rio Grande Bible Institute students went with us and worked with the kids that were there with their parents.  There are lots of people that work at the dump to sort through items that they can resell or use for their family. They are always thankful for the meal that is provided and for the opportunity to hear the gospel and receive prayer. We served 96 hotdogs and chips…and we ran out of food.  If you would like to help sponsor a meal at the dump, please contact us for more information!

The last week of January, we were blessed to have friends Roy and Debbie Risinger from Colorado join us as we poured the foundation for the new church in Nuevo Mexico.  We greatly appreciated their help in this project!

Yesterday we had a fun-filled Sunday with Horeb Baptist Church in Reynosa. The children decorated Christmas ornaments and the youth went to the movie theater after service. We love being able to serve and partner with this church. Thankful for the blessing of shoes to giveaway at the dump this month!  Thanks Bruce and Paula for sharing your donations with us! #projectfortifyreynosa #GivingTuesday is a great way to partner with Project Fortify and share the love of Christ in Reynosa, Mexico and the Rio Grande Valley. Everyone can impact the Kingdom and make a difference. 
Give now at projectfortify.org/donate Here at Project Fortify we strive to encourage, empower, and equip. As Christians, we are to bring out the treasure hidden in the earthly vessels we teach, train and feed. It takes equipping to ensure they have the necessary tools and knowledge needed to serve God successfully and find their place in the Body of Christ. It takes empowering to release the people into the place of God’s calling. It takes encouraging them that they have what it takes and are “complete in Him” to fulfill their purposes. “All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.”
‭‭2 Timothy‬ ‭3:16-17‬
