Looking for someone to be a blessing to this season? The bible study group that Jamie and I belong to here in San Isidro has adopted a family in dire need. The family of Juan Pablo is living in a small home in the middle of a field of really tall grass. The landowner is letting them live there for watching the property. Juan has a wife and three children; the oldest of which is five. Juan lost his job as a driver and currently has a stomach hernia; which we hope to be able to get fixed. Juan walks his five year old to school everyday. It is a 1 1/2 hr trip each way in a hilly area.
Our friend, Esteban, found this broken down bike at his work. We would like to get it repaired and give it to Juan so that he can ride his daughter to and from school.
We are also hoping to buy a weed-eater for Juan so that he can hire himself out to clear other’s properties.
On behalf of our bible study group we are asking you to help us help Juan.
The cost of the bike renovation is estimated at $100. A decent weed-eater is just over $200.
It would be great if we could get some household items to help Juan’s wife.
You can donate to Juan through The Journey of 2. Note in our tax-deductible donation ‘for Juan’. You can use paypal @ firstname.lastname@example.org and there is a button on our wejourneyedsouth blog for paypal. or you can mail a check to P.O. Box 1196 Springerville, AZ 85938
Below is a picture of the bike.
We are choosing not to post a picture of Juan Pablo and his family so that they may remain private.
