This time each year we look forward to preparing Shoeboxes to distribute to the community of El Porvenir, but this year it is not permitted due to COVID-19. In lieu of shoeboxes, you can ADOPT A FAMILY or FAMILIES. Please consider the amount of money that may have been spent on a shoebox(s) be made as a financial donation towards adopting a family. Any amount is welcome. Donations can be made to Niños de Baja directly by visiting www.ninosdebaja.org or checks/money orders can be sent to:
Niños de Baja
Attn: Lee Falberg
2390-C Las Posas Road
Camarillo, CA 93010
(Please remember to note “Adopt A Family” on your donation.)
Your donations will be collected and through the church in Mexico will be distributed equally to families with the greatest needs. Pastor Marcos Schultz and church staff will meet with the families and share Jesus with them through your gift. We believe God will work mightily through this endeavor. Please pray for this outreach and participate if you are able.
We are also encouraging a personal letter of HOPE to be given to the families. These will be distributed as the Pastor meets each family. Notes can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org and can be in both English and Spanish, we will be happy to translate. This is a chance to show these families they are loved, and God is with them. Imagine the impact of receiving letters of support when they are needed most.
All donations and letters of HOPE must be received by Niños de Baja no later than November 20, 2020. If you have any questions, please email Cindy at Kirschs@roadrunner.com or text her at (805) 217-5903.
“If anyone has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need but has no pity on them, how can the love of God be in that person? Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.” 1 John 3:17
