Greetings from the Director

“Blessed is the Lord God of Israel,
For He has visited and redeemed His people,”

These are the words of Zacharias, father of John the Baptist, who was born as a “prophet of the Most High” to “prepare His ways”, and to “give knowledge of salvation to His people.”

So I am thinking, “Why are we in this world?” For this life to have meaning, I need an answer. Where can I find it?

For starters, when I open my heart to Jesus, I become a “prophet of the Most High”. Then by walking in obedience, I “prepare His ways”, and finally, when I share the love of Jesus to the world, I am privileged to “give knowledge of salvation to His people”.

What a great privilege we have every day as prophets of the Most High to walk in obedience and to share the love of Jesus in our world. That is why we are in this world – to be obedient instruments in the Lord’s hands so that others may know Him.

The year 2010 has brought many blessings. Because of the donations received, and the volunteers who serve, we have been able to offer some help to people living with HIV/AIDS. Every person has different needs, and we want to get to know each one and give assistance according to the need.

Thank you for your part in making this possible. With your help, we enter the New Year with the assurance that we will be able to extend a hand to those who will be coming to Alto Refugio.

This coming year we are also extending our reach to include a HOSPICE. This is a new challenge that will require new funds and a whole team of workers to provide living quarters to women with AIDS and their children. Thank you for your prayers for this new venture. Wishing you many blessings for the New Year.
