Border Update

Border update:

It’s been awhile since we reported on how things are going with Mexican customs. As you know, we were experiencing great favor with the new 2nd in command, who not only secured that we paid the lower import fee, but also paved the way for us to really be known by many of the agents. This gained us faster access in crossing. However, in keeping with the usual process, her assignment came to an end, and she was transferred to another location. We were concerned what that might mean for us. The new boss came with greater favor! He has not met with us, but seems to have a heart for the poor, and waived the customs fee for now! There are occasions when we have to pay, if our load is slightly larger than normal. But this has been a wonderful blessing on the budget, although we know that it might be for just a season. We still are restricted from bringing produce, uncooked meat and dairy products. This is unfortunate, as we get so much of that donated, and there is such great need for nutrition and protein.  

 

By the Pallet Full...

Even though we are not able to take fresh food across the border we are allowed to take boxed and canned goods.  We are blessed every week by a local health care organization, which shares  non-perishable food from their private food bank. We get food by the pallet, sometimes 2-4 pallets a week! Wayne met the founder/director while sitting on a coalition panel, among other local organization heads, for spreading awareness on human trafficking. You just may never know what can come from being obedient to do what God gives you passion for. We also deliver food to a ‘women with children’ shelter (domestic violence and trafficking victims) in Tijuana which was a connection from this same coalition. 

 

140 Baskets   were delivered Good Friday to the children in Tijuana. Each of these baskets, along with the usual chocolate goodies, contained some practical gifts of socks, or hygiene product. But the most special enclosure, is a personalized card written and colored by a child in San Diego. Another blessing to make it across the border without a hitch. 

 

Thank you so much for your help on this project. We could not accomplish what we have so far without a team.
