Autism in Mexico City

Just in from Patrick Silvis, our faithful brother serving in Mexico City.

Since the new year, Patrick has been working to serve the disabled and hurting.

Regalando Amor "Gifting Love"
Patrick travelled to Toluca to serve kids with cancer by providing them toys. "It was great to see all of the volunteers care so much for the families," said Patrick.

This month they've held three events for children with autism and their parents and teachers. A professor is teaching the parents and other teachers of those with autism. Each child who attended the seminar received a lot of love and a free toy.

"Amor is Love" CD Project
This month God granted Patrick an exciting opportunity to record passages of scripture on CD. The songs are in English and Spanish with a them of love and friendship -- just in time for Valentine's day. The proceeds will benefit Mexican Missionaries.

Two teams are in training to go to Honduras on April 15th through the 26th. They are preparing to face a different culture, food and religion in Honduras. Patrick's church has been fundraising in order to send four people from his church. Donations welcome!

While serving Patrick has entered the first level of basic doctrinal classes and he's joined the worship team.

Patrick still lives with his host family and is saying goodbye to his roomate, Jonathon, who will be moving to a position south of Mexico City. Patrick is very grateful for all of your prayers and support.
