This year for our “Day of The Child” holiday, J- Jireh Ministries teamed up with two local ministries; one which supports a community of impoverished families and the other a children’s orphanage, both in Nuevo Laredo. We donated over 100 shoebox gifts for the children.
The families were so grateful that they handmade a large Thank You sign for us.
These families have so little, most exist on $25-$30 per week on a good week. Many are single mothers with very little or no assistance. We were thrilled to have the opportunity to donate gifts, necessities and clothing to them.
More importantly, they were given prayer, love, teaching and direction from the Word of God. Several received a physical healing and all received encouragement, emotional healing and a good meal that day.
JJM also sent 150 gifts, clothing and computers to a church in Laredo, Texas that ministers to families on both sides of the border.
If you would like to help us clothe, feed and provide necessities to the poor and more importantly, heal hearts with the love of Christ, contact JJM today and let’s get you plugged in. There are many ways in which one can support this vision. From the greatest to the least of these, every contribution is needed and becomes a vital building block for us. Thank you and may God bless and prosper you and your loved ones.
“But whoever has this world’s goods and sees his brother in need and shuts up his heart from him, how does the love of God abide in him? My little children, let us not love in word or tongue only but in deed and in truth.” 1 John 3:17 & 18
One of J-Jireh’s vital supporters who has taken literally the message of 1 John 3:17-18 is Dr. Carlos Ferreyro. Dr. Ferreyro has expertise in Counseling, Psychology, Philosophy, and Business. Dr. Ferreyro holds a Ph.D. in Philosophy Research in the field of Psychology and an M.A. in Psychology. Additionally, he has more than 25 years experience in International marketing across the United States and Latin America. Dr. Ferreyro led a team of relief caregivers during a major earthquake in Mexico. His team provided a fleet of trucks loaded with food, clothing, medical supplies, and other relief items for earthquake victims. More recently, he has been serving as a J-Jireh Ministries Board Member and as a Team Leader in our annual Christmas Shoebox Gift Challenge. He and his church, La Viña Ministries, collected over 350 gifts for our Christmas Shoebox Challenge. Carlos also assisted with conducting the presentation and delivering to several Shelters. Several members of his congregation from the church came to the workshop to aid in wrapping, inspecting, labeling and packaging gifts. They have been and continue to be, an awesome support to us with this challenge!
