"What does love look like? It is the hands to help others."
Sugeire Geronimo is grateful and delighted to receive a sewing machine so she can start her own sewing business. She is shown here with one of her daughters.
This will help her and her husband, who works in agriculture, cover the expenses of raising their family of two boys and three girls.
I’d like to reflect on some of the keys words in this statement.
To live the Gospel – We are inspired by the Gospel of Jesus Christ to reach out to those around us.
Sharing – Our mission is one of sharing our gifts. This is not a one-way assistance program. Rather, our mission is for the people of St. Joseph Grafton and the people of Los Toros to share our respective gifts with each other.
Solidarity – We work in solidarity with our brothers and sisters in Los Toros. Our goal is to become one with each other, sharing both our joys and our struggles.
Empowering – Through our solidarity, we strive to empower the people of Los Toros to achieve their goals for the future. Our mission is rooted in a strong support of education that seeks to develop leaders for the community and enable the people of Los Toros to support themselves and their families.Dave Bennett – Chair, Los Toros Mission Council
