Seniors Ministry
The elderly in Mexico are often abandoned and left to fend for themselves. Many wind up on the streets. There are few resources and social services available to them. Sometimes they are placed in a group home with the hope that someone will care for them. They receive few visitors and frequently family members simply ignore them and stop coming to see them. It is a lonely existence for the abandoned elderly, one that is much like a prisoner: behind bars, locked away, alone, forgotten and sometimes abused. Unlike some prisoners, they don’t get out, they have a life sentence.

We minister to the elderly by providing much needed love and attention. We visit to provide massages, conversation and the gospel message. We also provide wheel chairs and walkers. Occasionally, a few volunteers take the elderly on a day trip to the beach to enjoy the outdoors, warm sun, and ocean. We serve them lunch and just spend the day loving them. 

Recently our sister Deb was inspired to change the deplorable living conditions for these forgotten people and she has been advocating strongly for them.  She, Shirley and others are repairing the ramshackle place, providing clothes, mattresses, bedding, food and care items.  If you want to be a part of the transformation you can donate here on our website, the Canadian donation page has an option for Casa Maria and on the US donation page just make a note in the memo area to let us know that it's for Casa Maria senior's home.  You can keep up on all the amazing work they are doing and what they are accomplishing on the Friends of Casa Maria Asilo facebook page here:
