Supporting beyond the summer short term trip...

     For the past 5 years, our church has partnered with Pastor Oscar each summer to do a Vacation Bible School and work project at his church in Ojos Negros.  We learned that his church does a large Christmas outreach in Ojos Negros and in several surrounding communities.  The members of Oscar’s church work and sacrifice to provide a Christmas dinner for the families in the community (in Oscar’s words)  “worthy of the birth of Christ.”  They make and serve literally thousands of tamales to families who otherwise might simply have a bowl of beans for their Christmas dinner…and an extra bowl would suffice as gifts for the children.  When we asked Pastor Oscar how we could support him in this outreach, he suggested that we could provide small gifts for the children.  So, Bible Christian Church went to work collecting toys, and by the grace of God, we have been able to bring a large number of toys down for the last 3 years for Oscar’s church to distribute as they share the message of God’s greatest gift with their community.  Last weekend we had the blessing to be able to deliver 700 toys to Ojos Negros!  May God bless Pastor Oscar and his church as they continue to reach Mexico for Christ!
