We are grateful that the LifeSupportM.org team was recently part of a team of folks that traveled to Tijuana, Mexico, to build a home for a family in need. Our team and our family worked together to build an 11′ x 22′ wood and stucco home. Neighbors and friends also pitched in to help and as the sun radiated warmth, our work radiated love – we not only built a home, but also built relationships as well. Thank you listeners for your love and support to do good things in the world. Life? We can do this thing!
Take care everyone, and I hope YOU have opportunities to serve in your community and abroad.
Much love to all and thank you for your emotional, spiritual, and financial support!
Thank you to all our LifeSupportM.org donors for filling the truck with clothing, shoes, books, toys, supplies – and bicycles – for the Casa Hogar Sion Orphanage! Your generosity is wonderful! Jeff and I are heading out today to drop all the donations off with Sammy and his family. We love you all and are so grateful to be able to help the kids and staff at Casa Hogar Sion!
And, thank you Mill Valley Rotary Club for the generous financial donation after the Pumpkin Carving Festival – you rock!!!
We are grateful for the generosity and thoughtfulness that exists in the world!
Saturday, August 4th, Noon–4pm, Stinson Beach
Anyone who has ever been on Mexico Mission, from both Life Support and SHPC, including family and friends, is welcome to come out to relax and reunite. Use Stinson’s North parking lot, enter the beach at northernmost entrance, walk to the right and look for our green awning and blue sunshade. Bring a lunch; dogs are allowed, look forward to seeing you there!
As we prepare to embark on our summer Mexico House Building Mission, (Life Support’s 15th year) we would like to assure our family and friends that we are mindful about the health and safety of our team members.
We have certified EMTs (emergency medical technicians) on our team, an emergency plan, and a partnership with Amor, with whom we work when we are in Tijuana. Like Amor, each policy and practice that LifeSupportM.org has in place regarding security and safety is preventative and proactive.
Below is some safety information excerpted from Amor.org:
Amor has always been proactive about safety matters. For the past 32 years, Amor has worked hard to provide the best security and safety for all individuals involved. Amor considers the safety of the groups and Team Members its’ first priority.
News stories about personal safety in the regions that the house building teams serve have made the headlines and may be a source of concern for parents and leaders of future Amor Mission Trip participants. Because of this, Amor has built a strong presence in Mexico over these past 32 years through excellent relations with the local government, the police, and the communities that are served. Because of these relationships, Amor is equipped to deal with any and all safety issues that might arise.
There are people in need all over the world and we ask that you continue to send good thoughts to the families living throughout the world who are struggling without hope and to our group as we set out to do this important work.

If you would like to donate to help us build a home for a family this summer, here is the link to our fundraising page:
We (Jeff and Leona) have just returned from our spring house building mission to Tijuana, Mexico, where we worked with Amor as volunteer staff and were part of a group of people helping build homes for families.
We wish that this kind of service work would not be needed, but the reality is that there are many families, not only in Mexico, but also all over the world, living in substandard conditions – and who cannot on their own afford to change their living circumstances.
Perhaps if the world were organized differently there wouldn’t be a need to go out on mission trips to help people in this way, but until that time we are committed to helping families stay together by building safe, secure homes.
We are grateful to be able to do this work. Thank you to our family, friends, and supporters for encouraging us to live a life of service.
