Finally able to process the mission trip I was on with C-Quest a month ago, I'd like to share a bit about the amazing people of the Yucatan in Mexico. C- Quest has partnered with several Mexican Christians in the Progresso/ Merida region. All these people have hearts overflowing with love and spend their lives in complete service. We visited and served along side these amazing people for 10 shot days. During that time we went to a hospital, a private home to bring groceries and help a paraplegic mom of 5, a camp for at risk youth (of which there are many) and the poorest families, a Mayan school, 3 pueblos, a Mayan ruin/museum to try to understand the culture more and finally an orphaned Senior's home.
Daily, I think about and pray for these lovely elderly and the amazing lady who has given her life to care for them. At present there are 42 seniors living in a make do home. They are in need of everything, but C-Quest is starting with raising funds for beds for all the residents. I would like to join this effort and extend the invitation to anyone who would like to contribute and see all these elderly have a mattress to sleep on. I have committed to 20 beds ($200.00 each) which will be purchased there, so if you would like to make a donation please contact me directly or leave a message on the Church phone 403-949-2072 and I will call you back.
I'm also collecting mattress pads, incontinence pads, sheets and summer weight quilts that can be carried down with the next team going in July. I'm excited about helping in this very small way. Thank you for considering a donation or linen contribution.
