Juarez - Grandparent's Section - Sept 20-23
Juarez is a city of over 1.3 million people which borders the United States by way of El Paso, Texas. Where these two border towns meet, one of the greatest pictures of disparity is painted. On one side of the fence stands the affluence of the US and on the other side lay dirt roads peppered with shacks of dirt floors, blankets for doors and cardboard and pallets serving as the roof and walls. Many families live without running water and rely on water trucks to fill barrels outside their homes. And the electricity is unreliable with loose wires on the power lines.
You can make a difference! Come join us as we build a home and relationships in Juarez, Mexico. Together, we can build beauty from ashes and share the love of Jesus Christ!
The King will reply, 'Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.' (Matthew 25:40)
