Our home church, Immanuel Bapitst from Glasgow, KY, served with us the first week of November.  It was a blessing to have several here for the first time.  The week was filled with opportunities for the team to serve with all of our ministry partners.  They painted at Horeb Baptist Church and worked on the bathroom.  We also worshipped with members there.  The team cooked a meal and baked cookies for the kids and staff at the orphanage as well as cleaned the kitchen and dining hall.  We also bought food and household supplies for the families that have kids with cancer and disabilities.  We put together baskets and delivered several to the families.  It was definitely an adventurous time, it was rainy and the streets were difficult to pass through.  We got stuck and had to get out and push the van.  It was quite the entertainment for the neighbors.  The team also served a meal at the dump and passed out hygiene bags.  It’s very touching when the children and adults are super excited to receive shampoo.  Oh the things we take for granted!!  Their thankful attitudes and smiles are always a blessing.

We are grateful for the servant hearts and the joy they shared with not only us but our ministry partners as well.

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
