A pound of beans and a pound of rice (94 cents at current prices) will feed a family of four for a day. For the neighbors to the south of the Tres Rios Area of the Southwest Region that is sometimes a hefty sum that is not always available. First Christian Church in El Paso, Texas, is taking point on gathering the food and funds to help out their neighbors in Mexico. The church is partnering with a church in Juarez to distribute the food to those in need. To find out more about the effort, call Rev. Charlotte Hoppe, TRA Area Minister (915-525-1209) or Rev. Leslie Dalstra in El Paso (915-533-6819).
