Spirit and Truth

From the Denton Diary..Christmas Shoebox Drive Blesses Many Children, hundreds of toys are placed in the hands of needy children in Mexico.
The church van slowly creaks its way over the bumpy roads leading to an isolated village outside of a town in northern Mexico. This community, like so many others, has no electricity or running water and none on the way for the foreseeable future. It’s home to many who make less than $5 a day.
But on this particular day the poverty will be forgotten for a moment; the ever-present hardships will not seem so hard . . . just for a while.
The van pulls up in front of Spirit and Truth Church. To the excited chatter of little children, volunteers pile out and begin unloading shoebox after shoebox filled to the brim with goodies.
This is just one of the many stops the van will make. It’s all part of our annual Christmas toy distribution in Mexico. Entire families come to know the Lord and our churches grow because of this demonstration of Christ’s love.
We were blessed by many contributions from individuals and churches this year. This would not have been possible without your help. Thank you for being a part of this life-changing event!"
