Many of you know that I've been on the Leadership Team for the Tijuana Ministry, a provider of immersion opportunities for travelers to experience living with the poorest of the poor located just miles from the US Border. Bob and I have been helping to create community for our brothers and sisters who just need a helping hand to build a home to sustain their family for generations, help families out of poverty by providing scholarships so that their children can stay in school through college, and provide a week of fun so that children, teens and mothers can have a break from the struggles of just having enough food to eat.
This year I turn 70, and in celebration I would like to have you join me in Tijuana by supporting my effort to raise $2,019. Think of $2019 as a way for 5 children and one college student to attend school for a year. This amount will build a quarter of a house that will include running water, electricity, and the luxury of an in-door toilet. This small amount of money will provide meals to a child who, if fortunate, lives on eating a meager meal once a day.
Because of his health Bob can no longer travel to Tijuana but he joins me in this ask. In all the years you have known us we never asked you to buy chocolate bars, or wrapping paper or raffle tickets, but we are asking you now to help bring a bit of joy to some of the most wonderful people I have ever met. This summer we will build 5 houses and provide week long programs for over 350 children, teens and moms. Thank you in advance for your donation - you are helping to build miracles.
