Hi friends of A Cross Connections Ministries/Regalos de Amor!
We just wanted you to know that our 2018 Day of the Child (Dia del Niño) Outreach weekend in Nuevo Laredo is scheduled for Thursday April 26-Sunday the 29th. We would LOVE for you, your team, your family, your church…whoever the Lord leads…to join us for this fun event. The focus, of course, is sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ with the children and their families, but we plan to surround the Word with lots of fun and love through activities including: Bounce Houses, face & nail painting, balloon animals, pinatas, carnival-style games, gift bags, music and bean tacos (they LOVE them!)…along with anything else y’all feel led to do. We’d love to have things like health screening, hair cuts, etc., but it will all depend on what skills/talents the Lord provides through y’all.
If you would like to join us, please let us know as soon as possible so that we can be sure to keep you in the loop. Teams will stay at the Holiday Inn Express Nuevo Laredo. You can make reservations through hotels.com and other like sites. You might also check the hotel website in case their price happens to be cheaper. We encourage you to make reservations soon and to let us know when you do so.
We know that numbers always fluctuate, but please keep us updated so we can make plans on this end as we prepare the events. The sooner the better! If you are going to be part of a team, the team leader will be updating us.
Teams are encouraged to arrive Thursday afternoon/evening as we plan to meet for orientation at 8 pm to set plans for Friday’s orphanage ministry and Saturday’s outreaches. Plans for Friday morning after devotions include finalizing preparation for the orphanage, finishing packing Saturday’s outreach gift bags and traveling to the orphanage for outreach that afternoon. Saturday will be a full day (am & pm) of outreaches. Sunday will be departure day for traveling team. We will plan to have a small service that morning.
