Due to an unexpected mechanical issue, a new tractor needs to be purchased for our partners in Mexico.  The cost of the tractor is $18,000. To date $10,000 has been raised.  Would you consider making this need known and have a conversation about how you and your church might come alongside our brothers and sisters in this way?  Below you can find a link to a trip report with details and instructions for giving.
