Thursday I brought two suit cases full of toiletries for boys in prison in Chihuahua, Mexico. The prison director brought us into a dining hall and we handed out 20 packages of shampoo, soap, deodorant, toothbrushes, toothpaste, towels and underwear. These boys were all from the sierra, or mountains. They come from extreme poverty. Most have never received a visit from their parents while in detention. Some have been there for a few weeks, others years. They have to share their soap, towels and underwear because the prison doesn’t provide them and their parents can afford to make 7 or 8-hour trip to see them.
Our supporters and especially Capital City Baptist Church in Mexico City responded overwhelmingly to our call to provide Care Packages. Thank you!
