This past week from May 31- June 5, we had the privilege of working with students from the University of Memphis and Austin Peay State University.  We are so grateful for this team giving up a week of summer to come and help us serve the ministries we work with in Reynosa.  On Sunday, we were able to minister with Jorge Mar and his ministry Iluminando.  His ministry focuses on helping kids with cancer and disabilities and their families.  We held an event at a local place in Reynosa with a swimming pool for the kids to swim.  The team helped us by playing games with the kids, making crafts, painting their faces and fingernails.  We also had a photo booth for the families.  Around twenty families showed up, we provided a meal for them and a basket full of hygiene products, rice and beans.  The youth from Horeb Baptist Church joined us to put on a puppet show for the kids. On Monday and Tuesday we served at Pilar de Esperanza Orphanage digging a trench for a new tire shop, weed eating, painting and helping with a water leak. We also played soccer and had a water ballon fight with the kids.  Lots of fun!!  On Wednesday, we served at Horeb Baptist Church by painting the outside of the church, as well as mudding the drywall and sanding.

We were so blessed by this team, their hearts of service and hard working attitudes! Thanks so much!  Also, thank you to all who are supporting and praying for us!
