This is our last day in Sucre. During our time here we've had the opportunity to reflect on experiences and seeing God work all week! The time spent with FH, the children and the families has truly been a blessing to each of us.
We have learned so much about others and so much about ourselves. We are blessed to come to Sucre and encourage the families and children to accept God in their lives and to learn new skills to end the cycle of poverty.
We have prayed with those who are vulnerable. We have strengthened existing relationships and developed new ones.
The FH staff has had such an important impact on the lives here and I have seen such progress from 2 years ago. FH has made a positive impact on Villa Margarita. We have been blessed to see examples of positive transformation within the community.
To learn more about this amazing ministry and opportunities for you to be a part of it, come to MCC's Sunday service, April 9th for a mission trip wrap-up! Mission team members will talk about their experiences, show pictures of the trip and discuss how you can get involved!

The mission of OCC is to demonstrate God’s love in a tangible way to children in need around the world, and together with the local church worldwide, to share the Good News of Jesus Christ. Last year MCC collected 230 shoe boxes to be gifted to children around the world! Boxes will be available this Sunday, October 21st, in the foyer and the final drop-off date is November 11th! It is a great time to start gathering items to bless children around the world!
Shine also has a unique food pantry at A. Montoya! Kids often go to bed without dinner, come to school too late for breakfast, and aren't sure if there will be dinner that night. We have been asked to create a small food pantry at the school that would contain items like tuna packets, apples, macaroni and cheese, Ensure or Boost, peanut butter crackers, nuts, and the like. The children could keep these items in their backpacks so that they would always have something to keep them going. We are working on putting together a list of items, including gluten-free ones, that we would like to stock the pantry with. Please pray about whether you would like to donate items or money to help keep the pantry stocked year-round!
