This past weekend, the YES WE SERVE organization and the Live Mechanics crew took part in the "Missionary For A Day" movement. On the first Saturday of March we visited two orphanages in Mexicali, where we provided clothes, food, toiletries, toys, and a good time for kids. One of the highlights of the trip was pampering the young girls with hair styling and manicures. And for the young boys at the orphanage, they played with a new set of Legos and showed us how talented they really were with their building skills. This was my first "Missionary For A Day" mission, but it wont be my last. Those kids were so happy to see us coming there to lend a helping hand. The experience showed me how blessed we really are, but most of all how we should bless those in need. These kids are in need. Remember, the first Saturday of every month a the YesWeServe group goes down to Mexicali, Mexico and serve at two different orphanages, El Niño Feliz(The Happy Child) and La Esperanza de los Niños(The Hope of the Children).

El Niño Feliz
Doña Concha is the director of this home. Her faithful helpers are Ruth and her sisters. Their building was secured through donations from church members in San Jose, California, after their first building was destroyed by fire two years ago. None of the children or adults was hurt, and currently there are twenty-four children living at El Niño Feliz.

La Esperanza de los Niños
Martín and Elena are the directors of La Esperanza. Their steadfast helper is Juanita. This building was constructed six years ago, but is in need of constant repair. There are presently seventeen children living at La Esperanza de los Niños.
