A Call to Serve Others in Need
We believe that God calls us all to serve others, which is one way we encounter Christ. When we first learned about the Cuernavaca Children's Mission and the conditions the children in Mexico were facing and of the opportunity for us to be a part of the Sisters of St. Francis' ministry there, we felt inspired to help. By donating gifts that God has provided to us through His grace, we receive so much more in return. It brings us great joy to know that we are helping young people in Cuernavaca pursue an education that will open doors for them to follow their dreams.
Throughout this experience, the children we sponsor have sent us letters and photographs. To see their smiling faces and to hear of the successes they've had with the ministry is humbling to us. We are moved by the way these children show such motivation and are able to achieve so much despite having so few resources. It is clear to us that God's hand is at work when we see how fruitful this ministry has been.
As Catholics, we strive to live as Christ lived, and to answer His call to love one another. Self-sacrifice is at the heart of our faith, and it allows us to love others as Jesus loves us. This ministry has strengthened our personal mission to help those in need, and we are also able to pass on the value of charity to our children as a part of their faith education.
