"I hope that I would leave a legacy of joy, a legacy of real compassion. I don't think that you can know joy apart from caring deeply about people-caring enough to actually do something." - Rich Mullins

Years ago, I didn't see much harm in Holloween. It seemed like harmless fun. I don't want to be critical of anyone who celebrates trick or treating with kids. But I have also come to realize in my 6 years of living here in Mexico that the spiritual world is very real. Most of the work that we do here in the children's home is not so much physical but spiritual. Satan has had his way with families here for generations. The result is thousands of kids that are abused and abandoned. There are real live witches that live within walking distance of our children's home. Some of them have been so bold as to ask for our children or they will put a spell on us!
This year, in the children's home, we are spending Oct 30 & 31 in the evenings praising God in worship.
