God has brought so many Divine connections to Sonshine Hacienda! Recently, the two men pictured above with Pastor Gary reached out to us after discovering us online. They were bound from Austin, Texas, to Cabo San Lucas on an adventure trip, and wondered if they could stop by on their way with a load of donations.
Packed to the hilt with everything they would need for their car camping trip, they also managed to squeeze in several bags of rice, beans, macaroni and cheese, oatmeal, soap, crackers, and a couple of monkeys for the children. We thoroughly enjoyed meeting these gentlemen and look forward to continuing our friendship in the future.
We’ve had several other visits over the past 6 weeks from friends who also just happened to stumble upon us. One day, Papa Randy was outside working on vehicle maintenance when he noticed a couple driving slowly by. He went out to greet them. Our new friends Don and Katie live in nearby El Centro, California, and offered to bring us supplies when they come to town. Just last week, a day after running out of paper towels, they reached out to us and asked how they could help. Divine timing! They also brought us a huge box of baby wipes. And a few days later an 8-month-old girl came to live with us. More Divine timing!
These are just two examples of the Divine connections that God has brought our way recently. We could fill a book with the visits from the Lion’s Club, our local post office bringing fresh fish, longtime friends coming to simply play with the children for an afternoon, church groups that provide us with school supplies every year, the list goes on and on! We appreciate each and every donation, each and every volunteer hour, each and every prayer. We could not do what we do without each one of you!
