The BCM team arrived on Saturday, May 11th and immediately started preparing for our event on Sunday. The event on Sunday was for kids with cancer and disabilities.  This ministry is also known as Iluminando corazones a niños con cáncer and is run by one of our ministry partners, Jorge Mar.  At the event, the students served everyone hotdogs and chips, played games, painted fingernails, decorated cupcakes, made ballon animals and painted faces.  We also had Disciples of Christ Baptist Church youth come and put on a puppet show. The kids received prizes and each family received hygiene products.  Our purpose for this event was to share God’s love and hope with the kids and their families.  The college students loved on these kids and it was a huge blessing!

The rest of the time we served at Pilar of Hope orphanage.  The students painted two buildings, dug post holes for a fence, moved caliche, made stepping stones with the kids for the prayer garden and spent some time playing with the kids in the afternoon. The students were a huge blessing to the orphanage and to Project Fortify!  Thanks for serving your first week of summer break with us in Mexico!

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
