The week in Chiapas was awesome. Over 1200 children received a backpack with toys or a soccer ball. The events took us over 2 hours into the mountains away from our Hotel. The indigenous people were very happy to see us. Paula and Marianne Chain fitted many with reading glasses and shared the Gospel with each one. Phil and I made the hot dogs 🌭 every day, while a couple guys cut hair, a few others shined shoes, the drama with puppets was presented to all the kids each day before the toys were given.
The local pastors met us each morning and led us up the mountain to the villages. We gave each Pastor a nice offering before we left each day. The churches provided a meal for us each day after the events. I don't know how many people accepted Christ, but the were several. The pastors will follow up with those that made a decision.
Some of the people on the team have come down with the flu since returning. Phil and Marianne Chain are at a hotel a mile from our house. They didn't want to expose us.
Christmas Eve, we attended Calvary Church in McAllen, and then we went to Melodys Orphanage in Reynosa for fellowship, fun, songs and food.
