It is a privilege for us to network with great organizations that bring teams to Mexico and minister in a variety of ways to the people. Mission teams have a great impact on the ministry being done here. Below is a list of some of the ways teams can share the gospel. They strengthen relationships we have developed and open new doors of opportunity to demonstrate the love of God. Everyone who participates, benefits and lives are positively changed. The base of operations is located a mile high in Saltillo, about 45 minutes southwest of Monterrey, Mexico. Saltillo is the capital city of the state of Coahuila. It is surrounded by the beautiful Sierra Madre mountain range and full of history with interesting sights. It has grown to become a modern, progressive city with manufacturing from many parts of the world, but still maintains tradition and pride in its origin. Come see, you will love it!
RESCUE THE CHILDREN ASSISTS FORTELEZA A LOS POBRES
Strengthen the Poor was founded and is directed by Ruben and Carmen Hernandez who have received much recognition from all levels of the government commending them for the excellent job they have been doing for many years in the Saltillo community.
This couple and their team are operating three community centers called HABITATS where low-income single mothers, children and elderly receive food, medical and dental care along with encouragement.
A variety of training classes are offered during the year that includes, cosmetology, sewing, computer, nutrition, child development, breaking abuse cycle, English and Bible. Averages of 120 children are fed a daily meal four or five days a week depending on the supply.
Continuing education classes for adults, preschool and kinder, and tutoring for elementary student are available through the year.
THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS FOR RESCUE THE CHILDREN are a combination of professional business leaders and highly qualified individual men and women, who volunteer their expertise and who care deeply about the welfare of children. A board member receives the contributions and deposits them into a business checking account in the USA. We meet on a regular basis to analyze every aspect of the ministry from accomplishing set goals, financial and project wise and how affectively we are meeting the needs of our target groups. All financial data and description of the programs we administer are available through the IRS on form 990 and are accessible by internet.
