You made it! We know it’s difficult to navigate to our support page, so thank you for your persistence. And thanks so much for offering your support to the Smith Family (Randy, Tina, Bryson and Paquita) as we continue our journey in Mexico City for the next few years...
August of 2018 marked the completion of our second year in Mexico. We’ve been working with El Pozo de Vida, a non-profit dedicated to eradicating human-trafficking. Estimates vary, but somewhere between 30-40 million people, mostly women and young girls, are currently enslaved around the world.
El Pozo runs several ministries to tackle this epidemic, approaching the problem systematically from a prevention, intervention, and restoration perspective (https://www.elpozodevida.org.mx/). Tina and I spend the bulk of our time at El Pozo’s safehouse for rescued minors, walking alongside girls under the age of 18 who will eventually testify against their captors. In a heartbreaking setting, this is the most rewarding work we’ve ever done. To see God move in such a powerful way, bringing hope and restoration to the hopeless, is an incredible blessing.
Over 150 people come to experience El Pozo’s work each year, some with short-term mission teams, some on their own, some as families. It’s our honor to assist in hosting these teams, and to welcome visitors to our home to soak in the invigorating spiritual revival that God is orchestrating, both through El Pozo and on the streets of Mexico City.
Every day reminds us of how blessed we are to have dedicated supporters like you. Thank you for allowing us to serve God in such a profoundly humbling way. Please consider a recurring monthly donation, since it allows us to better allocate our finances for the year.
We hope to see you soon!
The Smith Family
