Piedras Negras, Mexico is a border town of countless orphans. Parents attempting to cross the border leave their children in the city with no means of support. Many of the children become homeless without a family to provide food and shelter. James 1:27 calls us as Christians to minister to the orphans and widows. The House of Mercy (Casa de Misericordia) is designed to provide this care both physically and spiritually. The House of Mercy will provide temporary housing for 106 children, Food, Clothing, and Christian Education.
May 1, 2017 Update: We asked for gift cards to help rebuild the house that burned down in January, and you so generously contributed. Thank you! Those funds have been sent to Mexico to be used in the restoration of the property. In the meantime, Laurel LaFrance has extended her mission to the orphanage for at least another six months (she was originally scheduled to complete her two-year mission in March, 2017). Dios bendiga a Laurel, y puede continúan prosperando en México! (God bless Laurel, and may she continue to thrive in Mexico!)
