Our primary goal is to build, maintain and enrich a wonderful relationship with them, where they come to know who we are – and they pray for us continually especially when we have specific needs – and we come to know them as people of great faith within circumstances of great poverty and challenge. All the other things we may do with and for them is only to make this relationship stronger, because we can never alleviate their poverty. We learn so much about how to depend upon God and live celebratory lives from these incredible people.
I feel that people of Nuestra Senora de Los Angeles have given me so much more than I have given them. What an honor that they let us into their lives so completely. – Becky
Though we emphasize focusing on our relationship with this community, we often find that pursuing certain projects which they initiate offers us a venue for being together, a way to interact more easily with the people, while at the same time supporting initiatives that help their poor community.
