Brown Bag Ministry

This Christmas Whittier Area Community Church is helping provide Christmas to children of Migrant Workers in Ensenada, Mexico. They provide items for children that will only fit inside of a regular brown lunch bag, stapled shut. This generous program has been going on for several years and has grown with adult Sunday School Classes supporting the effort. Today (12/4/11)  was the Pack Day, where hundreds of brown bags were filled for the children. All kinds of practical gifts were packed, items like: school supplies, small toys, items for boys and girls and even some Christmas candy. Every bag will be a surprise, with the exception, some bags are for boys and some for the girls. Some bags are mothers with young children. Even a few bags are prepared for local Pastors and their families.

Monday (12/5/11) I will join an advance delivery team with three other men,  who will drive the boxes of Brown Bags to Ensenada to be held in storage for the Short Term Mission Trip Team to arrive on Dec. 16-18th.  This ministry to the those in need has grown over the years. This year I will have been asked to share a gospel message at each of the stops our team will make. So I am planning to return. Sharon and I were involved with the packing, as you can see by the first photo. Anyway, if you think of us this, we would appreciate your remembering us in your prayers for safe passage and open-responsive hearts to our message of the good news this Christmas. Our passion is to see Kids come to the Savior, doing what we can, where ever we can, with God’s help.
