Matthew 18: 3 & 10

He called a little child and had him stand among them.

And he said: "I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. "See that you do not look down on one of these little ones. For I tell you that their angels in heaven always see the face of my Father in heaven.

Our oldest son, his wife and two children recently moved back to Pennsylvania after living in California for 10 years. Renee’ and I are thrilled to have at least two of our Grandchildren nearby. Right now they are very near by, living with us until they buy a house. Four year old Ella and Two year old Jack have really brightened up our “Empty Nest” with their antics and we love it. I had forgotten how much energy little kids have and how much work they can be, but it is so much fun to watch them learn with a sense of wonder and excitement. Having been born and raised in the high desert of southern California, they were used to sand, rocks and cactus; they had never seen autumn leaves before. So I got out a rake and my leaf blower and we made piles of leaves, jumped in them, they blew them in the air with the leaf blower. They are a blessing, but they are also very blessed. They have more than enough food, clothing, medical care, toys and anything else they need. What Caring Hearts Ministries does in San Luis is provide a safe, healthy environment where children without families can live and learn and grow just like kids in the U.S. Bethel Orphanage, Oasis Boys’ Home and Good Samaritan Soup Kitchen have helped thousands of kids over the years. Your giving, going and praying has made that possible. Thank you for your generosity. Instead of “Looking down on these little ones”, you picked them up with caring hands and gave them a fighting chance. Your Heavenly Father sees this and is pleased.

God bless you,

Pastor Gary


I talked with Pedro this morning. He had a meeting with the specialist who just arrived from Las Vegas. What is needed right now is an intense treatment with the serum HUMAN GAMAGLOBULIN. They need 120g. This is the same medicine that they had to get at the outset, and it cost $600 for just 5g. Without it, she will be in the hospital for months as they slowly treat it. This medicine is not covered by the state insurance. If anyone has a way to get this medicine at a reduced cost or donated, let us know. I think we can get it across the border without any problem. This is a desperate need. Further tests to discover the cause cannot be conducted until her red blood count is normalized. If there is anyway you can help, let us know by writing us at caringheartsmexico@gmail.com.

God bless and please keep praying. We need a miracle.

Juana and I visited Paola yesterday in the General Hospital of Mexicali. She was in good spirits despite the fact that she is bedridden. She doesn't feel sick, but she is in a dangerous situation, where any bump or bruise can prove to be problematic. Her red blood count has gone up and down from 1000 to 9000 under medication, but it is a lot lower than the 150,000 that it needs to be. The current diagnosis is Immune thrombocytopenic purpura, and if you click on the name you will see an article about it. She will be seeing a specialist today who has been out of town, and we hope to have an idea of what the treatment will need to be. I want to thank all who pledged, we have the first hospital and treatment covered for the most part. As I get more news I will let know. - Ken

Paola, Pedro's third daughter is very ill. A few days ago dark bruise like blemishes appeared on her skin and they took her to a doctor. It turned out she had a very low blood count, about 10% of the norm. She is in a hospital in Mexicali now waiting for a blood transfusion. They are also doing analysis for what caused this problem, the kidneys and liver are fine, they will be doing a bone marrow test to check for leukemia. Please be praying, and if you can help at all financially, it would be appreciated. She has insurance, but it is a state run program and they would have had to send her 9 hours away. Her doctors thought that in her state it would have been too dangerous, so they are using a private hospital. The first treatment is going to cost $500, and I am sure there will be other costs coming down the pike. We need your help! Be praying please!
