La Gran Familia Challenge Extended Until Jan 15th

All the children and employees at La Gran Familia are doing well. Some of the employees were quarantined with Coronavirus for a while but have recovered and are back at work. Praise the Lord!!

Our Diocese has just received a 2 for 1 challenge from an anonymous donor in Abilene. If parishes in our Diocese can combine to donate $4000 by January 15, the donor will contribute another $2000! This challenge is an answer to prayer, as during this pandemic we have not received very many donations!

Please consider giving what you can to this ministry. If each parish would give $200, we would reach our goal easily! We, as a Diocese have been in relationship with La Gran Familia (LGF) for 22 years. If you would like to learn more about this relationship, click on La Gran Familia. You may donate to the LGF general fund through this website. It will go directly to the challenge. You may also mail a check to the diocese at Episcopal Diocese of Fort Worth, 2900 Alemeda Street, Fort Worth, TX 76108. Please write LGF in the memo line.

Thank you for your participation in this challenge for our diocese!

“He will take pity on the weak and the needy and save the needy from death. He will rescue them from oppression and violence, for precious is their blood in his sight.”

Psalm 72:13,14

Prayers have been answered!

Update From Martín and Tavo

Mrs. Hautanen, member of the WMC had a recent telephone conversation with Martín and Tavo. 

Prayers have been answered!  Martin reported that all are well at La Gran Familia.  Martin is totally healed and is able to work with the children!  The other three employees that had symptoms are fine. 

None of the children ever exhibited symptoms.  They are still staying at the casa and are looking forward to going back to school in person next year.

Tavo reported that the Cartels are not near as prevalent as they have been.  It is not dangerous to walk the streets downtown. 

Thanks be to God!!
