CERI's Matamoros roots are growing!

Thank you for your continued support of the Matamoros Children's Home. Because of your generous prayers and gifts, CERI's roots in Matamoros are growing to a new region in Mexico: Coatzacoalcos, Veracruz! The word "Coatzacoalcos" comes from the Nahuatl language and means: the place where the plumed serpent hides. It is an important port city on the Gulf Coast of Mexico. The town is mostly working-class and is fed by its busy, dirty port and its thriving petro-chemical factories. 

A CERI medical team was recently sent to the town of Coatzacoalcos to provide medical care to impoverished children & adults. The church we used for clinics was situated under a sky that was littered with knotted webs of electrical cables, and surrounded by mud roads and cinderblock homes that were covered with sheets of rusted tin. 

The team treated patients who were suffering from health problems including lice, scabies, malnutrition and worms. Near the end of the week, people were noticing their physical improvements from the medicines they received; word consequently spread throughout all of the neighboring villages that CERI truly cares about Mexico! With 540 people treated, 1100 prescriptions issued, countless handshakes and much work still ahead, CERI invites you to pray about how you can increase our relationship with the impoverished people of Mexico.
