The joy of seeing people work together to serve others, is a blessing that brings to life the celebration of the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ. He was born & died on the cross so those who believe in Him could have eternal life. What greater honor than to help those in need and also tell them of Jesus.

Even with COVID-19, donated gifts flowed into Eagle Pass - where on December 1, 2020, a limited group of volunteers from several Texas communities, Eagle Pass & Piedras Negras, Coahulia, Mexico, gathered (in masks & socially distanced) to sort and package at least 3,000 gifts, 700 Spanish, English & bilingual Bibles & New Testaments, Christian tracts & Spanish In Touch Devotionals. All the items were prepared for distribution and Christian outreach in Texas and Coahuila, Mexico.

A special thank you to Bro. Daniel Garcia and some of his congregation (from Vida Eterna church) & Bro. Lupe Negrete (pastor of Monte de Jehova church) - both of Eagle Pass - for the use of their sanctuaries to box the many gifts.

Another trailer load of shoebox gifts, toys and Bibles were sent to Terlingua, Texas by Sam Craig Ministries. Anita & Jose Gonzales & their daughter, Mia (from Red Rock, TX) took the gifts and assisted with the Gatherings for Christ in that area.

This year, the Gatherings for Christ format had to change because of COVID-19. Churches and ministries distributed gifts, food - and more importantly the story & love of Jesus - door to door. Eight orphanages, 2 soup kitchens, 3 large street ministries, approximately 20 small churches in Mexico and 5 churches in Texas received gifts for their Christian outreach programs. Gifts were also given to Rancho Dos Countries Ministries in Del Rio for their gift & Christian outreach in Coahuila, Mexico.
