Hello church family, my name is Ruben. I have been attending church with my parents since I was seven years old, but I did not make the decision to follow Christ until I was twenty-seven years old. Now I am married to a wonderful woman who loves God and together we have three daughters.

Earlier in the pandemic I contracted COVID and now I have developed various complications that have resulted in several overnight stays at the hospital. I am in great need of financial assistance to pay for the medical care costs that have accumulated over the past year.

My family and I would be incredibly grateful for your love and support.

My name is San Juana. I am 76 years old and I have been a member of the International Church of Christ in Monterrey for 21 years.

I am a widow and I have 2 children, only one of whom can help me with some expenses when he can, but unfortunately he isn’t able to contribute enough to cover some of my biggest expenses.

I have thyroid problems, high blood pressure, blood circulation problems, and pain in my bones on my hip and right arm. Therefore, it is necessary that I buy medications that are very expensive in my country.

Due to the weather that the city has recently presented, my roof and one of the walls have considerable structural damage. So I am asking for your support to fix my home, where I can sleep and stay dry during rainy season and I be able to buy my medicines.

Thank you for your love and consideration. May God bless you!

Laura is 16 years old. Two and a half years ago she made the decision to follow Christ and became a disciple in Nicaragua.

In May of 2021, she began to have symptoms that first appeared to be panic attacks related to stress levels or anxiety. She didn't think much of it at first, but when she developed chest pain and started to have fainting spells, her parents booked an appointment with the cardiologist. The doctors found that she had a heart murmur that requires open heart surgery to correct the issue in order to prevent damage to the heart.

Laura is wrestling with this unexpected medical issue, but she feels secure and safe thanks to the love she feels from God and her family. She and her family are asking for your help as they navigate through all of this and work to finance her expensive procedure and after care.

My name is Carlos V, I have been a disciple and part of the Church of Christ in Tijuana, Mexico for 22 years. My wife Karla Valdez who is also a disciple. We thank you with all our hearts for all the help you are providing to disciples like me who are in need of support while we go through difficulties and we do not have the resources to be able to solve them.

I was deported approximately 13 years ago from the USA. My wife, who is a US citizen left her country to  live with me in Mexico. My father, who has also been a US citizen for 4 years, is living with us in Tijuana. Unfortunately, they are both going through severe illnesses; my father is on hemodialysis and my wife suffers from several chronic health conditions. Both have been hospitalized several times in the US and due to my immigration status, I have not been able to be with them in those moments when they have needed my help and company the most. After seeing everything they have gone through, I feel more than ever  for the love I have for them to try to fix my immigration status through an Immigration lawyer and to be able to have my legal Visa to be able to enter the USA and support them when they go through those situations and needs.

It is for this reason that I ask for your support to be able to pay for said lawyer, since I do not have the necessary resources to be able to do so.

I thank you in advance for your help.

May God take care of you and bless you always.

Dear brothers and sisters first of all, I want to thank the heart of each and every one of you for your help! I have been a disciple for more than 6 years, I was invited by a sister named Paulina.  I am so grateful to her for studying the Bible with me and helping me start my life with Jesus.

I now have three daughters, two of which are disciples and part of the campus and teens ministry. Our oldest daughter is a single mother and she currently lives with us. During the pandemic, our business dwindled, and we were forced to shut it down. Our economic situation has been very difficult, and we are in need of financial support while we recover from this difficult time in our lives.
