Loving Your Neighbor.

My wife and I just pushed our chairs back from our Thanksgiving meal time. This year, as we both recover from surgery (2 cataract procedures and an umbilical hernia repair), we were happy to rest, and certainly blessed, for all we have to be thankful for, including health insurance which provided for our recent health needs! The World Health Organization (WHO) says, “at least half the world’s population cannot obtain essential health services.” I would think the number would be greater knowing how densely populated third world countries like Mexico are, making it difficult to get accurate stats.

We are truly blessed and never take for granted all of our provision. And all that is provided to the folks we serve, thanks to YOU, and the great resources of food from organizations with which we are connected. I recently heard it said (though I can’t remember where), that proceeds from Black Friday sales alone, could provide clean water for all of the world where it is needed. That hit close to home for me, as I know how precious water is in Tijuana, just 30 minutes from my front door. On many occasions, I have been in a friends house in TJ while their city water has been turned off for an unknown reason. It might be for 3 hours, 3 days, or 3 weeks. This is why most homes must have some form of storage for water they cook and clean with, as well as another entirely different storage for clean drinking water. Tap water is in no way fit for drinking, regardless if it is on or not. According to Charity:Water organization “703 million people live without clean water”.

We’ve included photos of recent truckload blessings and the grateful hands they went to! We have a lot to be thankful for and always hope that we can continue to encourage others to recognize their own blessings and to take time to bless another in need. The Native American people helped the European immigrants as they arrived to the Americas. Let’s remember that we were all created in God’s image but also to fellowship with one another. That includes bearing burdens of poverty and sharing abundances.

Happy Thanksgiving and greater holiday season.
