Ely and I are doing fine here in Aguascalientes, Mexico. We are getting to see family as well as help out some of the families in the low income neighborhood.
The underprivileged folks down here are having great difficulty. Many of the sources of their meager incomes have dried up with the pandemic and life is pretty difficult. Nonetheless, those whom we know seem calm and accepting, placing their fate in the hands of Christ and Guadalupe, the Holy Mother.
Thanks to the generosity of the Knights of Columbus in Viscount, SK, we were able to help out five families with monetary gifts and some household goods to help in these difficult times. Social programs are scarce and these people have difficulties with basics like food and medicines.
Please put the people of the Vicente Guerrero neighborhood in your prayers. These are good Catholic families who are struggling right now.
