Mexico Mission Trip

On January 12, 2011, the Mexican government unveiled a new data- base giving a total of  34,612 people killed over the past four years. The new list showed that 2010 was the bloodiest year so far, with 15,273 murders.

As recently as January 26, 2011, a missionary working with orphans just south of Reynosa was shot and killed after escaping a checkpoint set up by Mexican drug cartel.

For this reason- and after much prayer and advice from our mission partners in the region, Blanket Buddies will NOT enter Mexico this spring. BUT.... we will still deliver food and supplies to a mission base in Texas during the last part of March.  Mexican workers from the orphanage will cross the border to retrieve the items when safety permits.

If you would like to help, please click the donate button. Any size donation is greatly appreciated and 100% goes directly to help these orphans.
