Voice of the Children worked for two years in Ensenada, Mexico. We began weekly children’s programs that included Bible teaching and a meal at two churches in a poor neighborhood on the outskirts of town. When we first approached one of the pastors, he exclaimed, “this is just what I have been praying for! I have wanted to minister to the kids somehow, but did not know how to start!”
Outside of town, there was a squatters village of Oaxaca Indians. They had come up from the south, looking for a livelihood, and settled on an isolated hillside in patchwork huts built from scrap. A local ministry had been working with this group and built a community building. We supported this ministry by organizing the clinic and bringing medicines and volunteer physicians for multiple free clinics.
