It has been a while since I have reported. Shortly after my last updated we had 4 groups come in one after the other, filling our November with much activity. I am finally getting a chance to get settled and let you know what has been going on here at Caring Hearts.
The first group that came in was the Sames Family from Pennsylvania, for a short trip. They blessed our children with their presence and love. Kerrianne as been a faithful supporter in many ways, and this was a time for her family to learn why she loves Caring Hearts so much. They spent time with the children of Bethel and Oasis.

Shortly after, our next group came in from Walnut Grove Assembly of God, Pittsburgh PA. Leaders Bob and Lori lead a fine group in the construction of a house for Bethel worker Minerva, and they also spent time with the kids, shut ins and garbage dump workers. Here are some pictures from their trip:

The day Walnut Grove left, the first of two groups from St. Ferdinands in Cranberry PA arrived. They did some painting at the Kino school, spent quality time with the kids at Oasis and Bethel, visited shut ins, the soup kitchen and the dump. The next St. Ferdinand´s group dedicated their time to finishing Minerva´s house, helping with another shut ins home and some tile work at Kino. They also visited shut ins, the dump and spent time at Bethel and Oasis.
Now we are gearing up for our Caring Hearts Christmas. We have a special prayer need. The Mexican Customs has a new administrator, and he has been very difficult when it comes to giving permits to bring in donations duty free. Many locals from Arizona and Caring Hearts Sponsors want to bless San Luis, but we are having a hard time getting things across freely. Please pray that God will open up the Heart of Mr. Vargas so we can help folks like you bless the people. If you are planning to send gifts to Caring Hearts, please write to me for special instructions. firstname.lastname@example.org We have two large local groups who are planning to truck loads of stuff across, I am submitting permits Monday in hopes we will be granted favor. Please Pray!!!
