We are the Hernandez family, my wife Berenice and I were baptized at the Mexico City Church 24 and 27 years ago respectively. We are currently living in Merida, Yucatan. We have two kids, Hernan (14) and Dante (10).
Last year, my son Hernan was diagnosed with a disease named multiple osteochondromas (bone tumors cover by cartilage). On September 2020, he had a 5 hour surgery in which several tumors were removed from his legs and surgical plates were settled on his knees and surgical screws were settle on his ankles.
Nevertheless, he´s been experiencing pain and lack of complete movement on one of his arms. He has tumors on his wrist. He needs a new surgery to remove these tumors, to help him reduce pain and recover complete movement of his hand. Also to remove the plates and screws from his legs. This surgery must occur on the first week of October. Our business, that is our source of income, has been heavily affected by the COVID pandemic and our family income has been drastically diminished.
For this reason we are requesting an economic support to cover the expenses of clinical tests before surgery (blood test, MRI, CT scan) and the surgery itself.

My name is Thabeth Moyo. I was baptized as a disciple in 1996. I am 87 years old. My life is for christ. I wish to imitate him till he calls me home. I pray to be faithful all the days of my life. These days, clinics and hospitals are unable to help me because they do not provide free medication for people with preexisting conditions like myself. I suffer from many ailments and I am seeking your support to purchase medication and basic needs.

Mt name is Froylán, I am 36 years old from Culiacán, Sinaloa and I have lived in Mexico City since February 2012. I was baptized in Culiacán on April 27, 2008. My wife is called Ester, she is 41 years old, she was born in Tlaxiaco, Oaxaca and has lived in Mexico City since 1994. She was baptized on February 11, 2001. We were married on December 28, 2013 and we have a 6-year-old daughter named Sofía.

In the Church, God has allowed us to serve in different ministries, and we feel so blessed to be a so closely tied to the body. Unfortunately, on June 26 we suffered a car accident on our trip from Mexico City to Culiacán.

My wife and I were hospitalized for two weeks. And now we are buried in expenses for our aftercare. The brothers and sisters in our region have been generous and loving, but we have many expenses and we are in great need of your support.

On June 30, 2019, I was baptized in the Church of Christ in Tepic Nayarit (Mexico), my sister Karla and my brother-in-law Carlos, disciples of the Tijuana church, shared the Word with my mother and I. Miraculously, she was also baptized at the age of 95 before she passed away 6 months ago.
From a very young age I suffered from seizures (Epilepsy) until about 15 years ago God gave me the blessing of having my health. But as a result of those seizures, my teeth became uneven, my jaw is contracted and because of these things I have suffered hearing loss in both my ears accompanied by buzzing and throbbing.
At the moment I do not have an income. I am separated from the father of my children and he does not provide me with any financial support. Currently I live with my son who is single and he is the one who supports me during this time.
The bill for my much needed maxillofacial dentist is very high and for this reason I dare to ask you from my the bottom of my heart, brothers and sisters for your help if it is possible for you to do so. Thank you!

I would like to introduce you to Toros.
He lives in the suburbs of Beirut, Lebanon. He was invited by his brother in law to study the bible in 2002. He still remembers this day that changed his life. He saw the truth, all his questions were answered, felt the amazing bond disciples have and wanted to be part of this family. On the 10th of March 2002, he got baptized and took the same decision as Joshua “As for me and my household, we will serve the Lord”.
Till this day he serves in the church band, with all his heart, as the pianist.
He is the father of two and a devoted husband of Hasmik, also a faithful member of Lebanon Church of Christ who serves in the band as well.
Toros suffers from a huge dental issue and he is in great pain. Since he is the only provider for this family and due to the prevailing situation, he cannot afford to take care of this matter.
We appreciate if you can help him. Thank you and God bless you all.

Greetings from the Pantitlán region. We are desperately requesting your valuable support for our brothers in the faith, Eduardo and Patricia who have been married for 30 years. On March 4, 2020, Eduardo was falsely accused of robbing a cargo truck. The Mexican authorities arrested him, incarcerated him and in March of 2021, he received his final sentence of 11 years and 8 months.

His family has undergone tremendous emotional pain and now they are buried in debt due to legal fees and the loss of Eduardo’s income. Our home church has provided as much financial support as possible, but with the onset of COVID, most of our members have been facing their own battles and they cannot afford to help Eduardo’s family.

Patricia now faces the difficult task of managing her home and making weekly visits to the prison to bring her husband food for the week. The family is in great need of assistance as they navigate through this tremendous life change. Your financial support and prayers are greatly appreciated!

My name is Hilda Majuru. I was widowed in 1997 when my only son Tinomudaishe was 3 months old. From then I on, I never thought of going to church again because I was bitter towards the Lord. I always asked, “but why did God allow this to happen”. It was not easy raising a child under the economic hardships in Zimbabwe as a single mother. Before I came to church, I used to cry almost daily especially when my child became a teen. He totally changed. He was rude to me to say the least. Thank God he was baptized in 2012 and now he loves God more than anything else. In June 2013, I also got baptized. Now we are a happy family of disciples. 

Recently, my uncle gave me a 200 square meter plot.  We were able to get all the brickwork finished, but there are no window frames, no ceiling, no floor, and no water inside the house. We are currently using a bucket system for cooking and bathing. My son and I are kindly asking for assistance to purchase building materials for our home to make our space a more livable place for us to reside.

Your love and generosity is greatly appreciated!
