Once again it is our privilege to come alongside a ministry in Colima Mexico where the love of Jesus is shown in very tangible ways. This ministry is called the “comedor” which means ‘dining room’ in Spanish because it provides both real and spiritual food to the very poor and elderly. Libuska and her volunteers host what we would define as a soup kitchen. Each day they prepare food at local Christian church, go out into the poor neighbourhoods where the elderly live, set up their portable ‘dining room’ and lovingly serve them a nutritious meal. That meal may be the only one the elderly get that day as many have little or no means to support themselves. These volunteers love on these people by spending time getting to know them and building relationships. While they are being fed a volunteer shares from the Bible so these people can hear and learn more about God's love for them and His great desire to have a relationship with them. The “comedor” is not only feeding their bodies but also their spirits and it is a beautiful thing to witness.
Our primary focus will be to help make their everyday lives a little more comfortable. Many of these people live in shelters made of a few broken boards and tarps with a dirt floor. Their living conditions are heartbreaking! We will do small construction projects such as pour concrete and tile floors, repair walls, or repair roofs to improve their basic living conditions. We welcome your prayers for this ministry and your input either by being a volunteer or if you feel led to, please make a donation of any amount towards construction materials. Thank you!
