I am a Deacon in the Cathoic Church. I regulary am blessed to help this charity. When I see these poorest of the poor and assist in food, medical supplies and cloths, I am gratified and to see the thousands who are sustained by the work of Sky Cross. The graditude which is shown by these poor along the Texas and Mexico border - and into Mexice - gives perspective to how blessed we are and is a model of what it means to give thanks to God for the basic needs of life. In additon as the years go by it is even more wonderful to see how the lives of the people are lifted up since their basic needs are met allowing the missionaries to educate the children because Sky Cross keeps them fed and healthy.
