The First Baptist Church of Fulton, KY served with us July 25th-30th. It was truly an awesome week. On Saturday, the 26th, we began the day by sharing food, New Testaments, tracts, rice and beans, and hygiene products at the dump in Reynosa. From there, we went to participate in fellowship with Iglesia Bautista Horeb during their time of baptisms. (A blog about the baptisms can be found here). It was a blessed time. On Sunday, Pastor Stephen preached at Horeb and then we began to make preparations for VBS. Some of the team decorated and others went out to invite the community to the Vacation Bible School. The VBS went very well each night. The members of the church really enjoyed it and decided they wanted to continue it on Wednesday night without the team. That last night they had about 80 kids in attendance! It was really awesome that the Fulton group was able to encourage and equip the members to continue on with the Bible School. On Monday before VBS, the team was able to visit the orphanage, meet Sara and some of the kids, and learn about ministry opportunities there. It was overall a great week. The Project Fortify team is so thankful for this team and all of their hard work and love. The members of this team had servant’s hearts and were so encouraging to us as we ended our summer team ministry. Thank you for all you did and for all your love, Fulton!

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
