Trip to Rio Bravo

Last week, we made a trip to San Jose Rio Bravo, the town whose feeding center we support, with Jessica's parents and a pair of missionary friends. We were blessed to be able to bring with us 3 months worth of food for the program. While our main ministry will continue to be at Casa Shalom, we believe that God opened the door for us to work at Rio Bravo for a reason and we'll continue to support these very needy children for as long as we are allowed. Enjoy the photos from Rio Bravo: Photos 1 and 2: Rio Bravo children enjoying their breakfast Photo 3: A little girl using her shirt as a napkin after breakfast 4: Josh serving breakfast Photo Photo 5: Jessica translating for Pastor Freddy, who runs the feeding program, on what will be the 2nd floor of the feeding center.
