December 27-30, 2016

We were able to go down again to Pequenos Gigantes this December to continue to work on the needed security cinder block wall. The wall is bein mandated by the government and time is of the essence. Marcos and Rebecca, the pastors and founders of the orphanage have been wanting the wall for the orphanage for the past ten years as a means of protection for the children from animals and people that may enter their property. Currently they never leave the property unattended and one person must remain behind at all times to protect the property. When Dave Sizemore and his family volunteered their masonry skills and teamed up with EFFORT225 it was an answered prayer. Dave said it was humbling to be used by God in such a manner to be an answer to a long standing prayer.

This year for Christmas we were able to join CALM - Church at Lake Mead for their Christmas tradition of handing out tents and sleeping bags to the homeless of Las Vegas. This was a wonderful ministry and CALM has year round outreach programs and is a church that is actively involved in reaching the community and serving everyone.

We have several upcoming trips, several affiliated with VMC. Kevin will be going to Haiti with VMC in January. Kevin, Joey and Beverly will all be joined by Krista Barney of Canada to go serve in Papua New Guinea in February in an EFFORT225 ministry opportunity to assist the missionaries, local Papua New Guineanian Children and missionary children attending UIS. In February some of the Barclay family will be heading to Africa on an aide trip affiliated with VMC. Meanwhile there will be a few more trips to Mexico, some mental health services and trauma services being provided to missionaries and their families wo faithfully follow our Lord's call, and continued work on the home front with Family to Family sponsored by VMC to feed the homeless and those in need as well as community outreach services provided by EFFORT225. Anyone feeling led by God to serve please feel free to contact us for other opportunities.
