Spring Break Service

The Matamoros Children's Home is at it again, and we couldn't do it without you! Here is a message from CERI's National Director of Mexico, Dr. Saul Camacho:

While some young college students prefer to indulge themselves during spring break at beach parties and other activities, a group of CERI volunteers chose to become servants. This spring break, the Matamoros Children’s Home hosted two college teams who came to Mexico with an attitude of service. For one week, college students worked hard mixing concrete to extend our driveway on the west side of campus. I'm proud of their accomplishments and for showing God's love through their hard work.

We at CERI are so grateful for your faithfulness. Whether through missions or financial gifts, you are affecting vulnerable children with much needed love. Thank you!
