Thank you for praying. Our annual board meeting was held at the Baja Mission this year.

NEW DAYCARE CENTER

The group also visited the new daycare center in San Quintin, where 45 children will be immediately loved and cared for. This is another wonderful opportunity for outreach.

GLENN ALMERAZ

For me, the highlight of the Board meeting was Glenn giving thanks for his education, ministry, and the fact that his two children were given the opportunity for education. Glenn’s daughter, Genesis, graduated from medical school
and is now in an internship program. His son, Glenn Jr.,
is attending a Culinary Arts school in Ensenada.

Glenn awaits treatment in Mexico for Hepatitis C. Please pray for him.

CHUCK PEREAU, JANELLE KELLER AND DALE  FORSSE

Thanks to Vicki Gravell for handling the annual Christmas stocking project for the children. She shops all year long for the best buys, then a group of women from the Village Church in Laguna Woods, meet together to “stuff the socks." It took three vans to transport all of them to the warehouse.

Thank you Chuck, Janelle and Dale!

ANDREA, ROSALINDA, LAURA AND CHARLA

Keith and Maya Durkin, formerly missionaries of FFHM, now provide meals for hundreds of children who live in abject poverty in Tijuana, Mexico.
I frequently pray for the Durkins. Not long ago,
I had a dream of three little girls who came for assistance.

I shared the dream with Keith and Maya and long story made short:
Maya arranged to have these three destitute girls interned at our home in Baja.

Please pray for these children separated from their mother.

TWILA AND STEVE BELK

After many attempts to write the sequel to Charla’s ChildrenTwila has agreed to write it and a contract has been signed. Now the hard work begins. 

Please pray for Twila. She expects to complete the project by mid-March.
