Breakfast Feeding Program
LBCM’s Breakfast Program serves children by providing them a nutritious meal. We hope that these meals are helping children while they are at school, keeping them alert and able to concentrate on their school work. There are many single-mother families in Mexico, and serving breakfast is a good way to bring these families together to share food, Bible study, crafts and music. Some of the families have started to attend church. We feel this program feeds children with food and the Word of God.
After School Programs
LBCM has supported after school programs in the past and hopes to do so in the future. We would like to provide help with homework and possibly some type of sports activity like soccer or martial arts.
LBCM is blessed to have a woman with a passion for music. She has started teaching music to many of the children at several churches in Tijuana. She organizes a recital for the children at the end of the year.
Christmas Gift Distribution
For many years LBCM has been collecting and giving out Christmas gifts for children from babies to teenagers. The churches and missions we support usually have a Christmas party with the children and then give out the gifts. Often the children of the churches and missions enjoy putting on a program of music or a play.
LBCM has been helping several orphanages in the past, and we have developed a special relationship with one that is near the LBCM center. We hope to continue and grow this relationship in the future.
LBCM is a strong believer in education. Many families in Mexico cannot afford an education for their children, and many children drop out of school to go to work to make money for their families. Through the Angel Scholarship Program, we are able to assist children and their families by helping them achieve a good education and improve their future. The scholarships are given to Elementary, Junior High and High School students. Through the Angel Scholarships program a donor is able to assist in a more “as needed” basis, providing assistance when a child has an unexpected need.
The funds are used to assist with tuition, books, school uniforms and transportation. We also collect and give out school supplies during the year for the scholarship students, as well as other students.
