A Bicycle for Juan

bicycle surrounded by children

My friend Juan asked if I could get him a bicycle that he could use to get to work. Juan and his wife have a beautiful family with beautiful smiles. When I gave him the bicycle with two new spare tires and tubes, I forgot to take a picture. On my next trip, I went to his home to take a picture. Juan, his wife, and oldest daughter were not home. You see, their cousin, a 17-year-old girl, got caught in cross-fire and was killed. They were attending the services for her. The next oldest child (about 10 years old) was taking care of the rest of the family. Juan is very thankful for his bicycle.

Despite the news coverage that has presented Mexico as a dangerous country, you can be assured that God’s love is being felt!
