MexCity Mission, Mexico City, D.F.
Don from Minnesota learned about the work we are doing here in Mexico City after happening on the FCF website, and offered to buy Christmas presents for the children at the orphanage we assist. After communicating more at-length, Project Manager Cindy Thomson, shared our primary need with Don: a new van for the mission. Don then agreed to purchase the vehicle as well. Here is the rest of the story from Cindy.
"I flew up to the border to rendezvous with Don in Texas, where he had a Dodge 15-passenger van lined up to buy. The vehicle had only 29,000 miles on it and was in mint condition, still having the new car smell and look.
"After purchasing the van, Don and I went shopping and proceeded to fill it with Christmas gifts. We then drove down to Mexico City where Don spent 5 days with us. During his stay Don went to Coyoacan with our youth outreach team where he witnessed our Christmas performances. He also participated in our orphanage assistance program, spent Christmas day with the orphans and generally saw us in action. He said he was very impressed with our work and that he likes the way we think and operate.
"Don is a 55-year-old successful businessman and told me he has found a way to act on the compassion he feels for a needy situation. He kept expressing how personally satisfying the experience has been to him and how it has added a whole new dimension and quality to his life."
We greatly admire Don for successfully acting on his heart-felt inspiration, and helping to create such a wonderful and significant Christmas for these dear orphans, in addition to showing his support of the great work MexCity Mission is doing.
