Our Foster Child:   Mateo Garcia Espinoza

Through Christian Children’s Fund, Inc., our church school children have adopted a young Mexican boy named Mateo Garcia Espinoza. He is 17 years old (he will be 18 on November 1st) and lives in Francisco and Madero in Puebla, Mexico. Thanks to our support in recent years, Mateo’s most recent correspondence tells us that he is in good health, is a good student, and is passing all of his classes. He plays guitar in a band that performs huapango music. His letters also tell us that our support has been a tremendous help to his family.  He writes to us a several times a year to give us an update and to offer us his most profound thanks.  We ask that each of you, as his extended church family, keep him in your prayers each week.

We will be writing to Mateo periodically, as a group, throughout the school year, but if you wish to correspond with him on your own, you may do so by using the following address; and please note, the address must be written exactly as it is provided here:

Every little bit of help we send to our foster child brings positive little changes to his life. Each child is asked to bring an offering to “Circle Time” (Children’s Worship) each week.  A large donation box bearing a picture of our little foster child, Mateo Garcia Espinoza, will also be available for adults’ offerings and loose change every week in Farnum Hall as well.  Encourage your children to put all of their extra pennies into their weekly offering. All that small change adds up, and is turned into significant change in Mateo’s life.

Fall Canned Food Drive

Once again this year the entire church family will join the children in their canned food drive.  The children will be invited, for the entire month of November, to donate canned and non-perishable goods to put in the Learning Center collection baskets.  During the opening hymns on Thanksgiving Sunday, the children will join the Pilgrim’s Procession, with the entire church family, in presenting the gifts at the communion table.  The chancel will become a generous cornucopia for the needy of Aquidneck Island.

Holiday Giving Tree

This year’s Holiday Giving Tree will be looking for donations from the children.  The theme and recipient for this year’s tree will be announced in November.  Stay tuned!
