GCA partners with Tijuana Centro Shalom Center
Through this outreach we provide Christmas shoeboxes to brighten the lives of children. In 2014 we were privileged to bless 289 kids with Christmas Shoebox gifts!
Exciting ministries continue south of the border! Since 2001, our Association’s churches have engaged in evangelistic ministries and church planting in Tijuana and Ensenada. Together we have conducted vacation Bible schools and the construction and re-modeling of Baptist churches, homes and a school. Our churches have donated cash, food, clothing, tools, building supplies, education supplies, and Christian literature valued at $166,000+. We have delivered 4,375 Mexico Christmas Shoe Boxes. Thousands of people have professed Jesus as their Lord and Savior, been baptized, and joined these churches. Great work for God’s glory!
The high cost of educational supplies and uniforms discourage many children from attending schools in Mexico. But again this year through Mexico Christmas Shoe Boxes you and your church can make hundreds of children happy and help them in school, all in Jesus’ name. Here are the details.
You may include in your Mexico Christmas Shoe Boxes items like these:
- Small toy appropriate for the child’s age and gender (required)
- Personal hygiene items (toothbrush/paste, comb, soap/shampoo/conditioner, etc)
- Hard candy (no messy soft candy, please)
- Hair care accessories
- Costume jewelry
- School supplies (notebook paper, pens, pencils, ruler, scotch tape, scissors with blunt ends, colored markers, etc.)
- Fun coloring books and crayons
*Please gift-wrap each shoebox, and label it as to whether it is for a “younger girl/boy” (ages 6-10) or for an “older girl/ boy” (ages 11-12).
*To assist with delivery expenses, you may also mail to the GCA Main Office a tax deductible check payable to the “Great Commission Association”. Please write in the memo section “Sta Barbara Hisp Ministry Network”.
