CarePoint Children Visit the State Fair

CarePoint Children Visit the State Fair

   Isaias Lucy
   13 May 2019

Earlier this month, the children from the Progreso and Palomino Carepoints had an incredible opportunity to visit the San Marcos Fair (State Fair) in Aguascalientes, Mexico. It is the largest event in the state of Aguascalientes, as well as one of the most popular attractions in all of Mexico. Each year, about one million people are in attendance. Because of the cost, many of the CarePoint children and their families have only heard about the fair, but have never been able to attend.

In faith, our Palomino facilitator, Monica, reached out to the coordinators of the event about acquiring tickets for our children at the CarePoints. They generously donated free admission for one hundred children and thirty volunteers for two hours. We were able to bring sixty-seven sponsored children with thirty volunteers to the fair for an afternoon of fun!

On the way, the children could hardly contain their excitement and anticipation! They were well-behaved and obedient, enjoying the experience with thankfulness. It was an incredible day for everyone involved. In addition to our CarePoint facilitators, most of the volunteers were mothers from the community. They were very grateful to see their children having so much fun. Many of the children exclaimed, "This is the best thing that has happened to me! Today is the best day ever!"

For our Children’s Cup team here in Mexico, it was also a big win. It was impactful to give these children a once-in-a-lifetime experience and spend quality time bonding with their families. God’s love was evident throughout this entire event- from the provision of the tickets to the joy these children experienced at the fair. We have been reminded that Our Heavenly Father sees and cares for us, and delights in showing us His love in unexpected blessings. Your sponsorship and support helps us create moments like these for children all over the world!
