NINOS DE LA PROMESA (CHILDREN OF THE PROMISE)
This past Saturday Matthew 10:42 and Luke 18:16 were put into practice by Orchard Community Church as twelve boxes of clothing were taken to Niños de la Promesa in Tijuana. Many of you were praying for us and not one of our four cars was stopped at the border. Our hearts were touched as Connie Youngkins shared with us the joys and challenges of this ministry. Fifty children are being blessed because of you. If you want to know more details of our time and this ministry you can talk to Chris Gese, Sven Olsen, Maria Richley, Alan Palmer, Mel Bittner or Jan Bittner.
Thank you Orchard for living out what Jesus said "Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field." Matthew 9:38
