February 2011

Dear friends & partners,

I hope you are all doing well. Today, I want to update you on TLCCM.

On Feb. 8 th., I returned from a wonderful five week trip to Tijuana & Rosarito.

The work in Mexico, is growing by leaps and bounds. I am amazed at what the Lord is doing by us and through us in our three TLCCM locations.

Our Centro Réveil feeding station is busy feeding an average of 258-270 kids daily four days a week. In addition, we have our weekend services where we continue to teach the Word of God, and feed the kids. These services also attracts additional kids and some adults. We now have the privilege to minister to over 1,400 kids per week. Our Vacation Bible School (VBS) outreaches last summer, reached over 2,800 kids.

Our great team of volunteers continues to work with love and dedication. Every time I am there, I make it a priority to have a meal together. The Lord also gives me a Word for them. This has proven to be a real encouragement for the entire team. Twice in 2010, I was able to also bless them with an individual financial gift, which was a something they did not expect but joyfully received.

Also, because of the two cube vans full of generous donations in gifts in kind that we received from the International Church of Las Vegas in 2010, I was able to give all my ladies some new dishes, pot & pans, pillows, bedspreads and other items that they cannot afford to buy. Diapers, soap, deodorant ect… were also a great help.

Our 2010 TLCCM miracle was certainly the monies that came in from individuals and from my local church, Centre Réveil International, which permitted me to buy two previously owned 2006 & 2004 Ford Econoline 350-Heavy duty vehicles for both, Pastors Martin and Angel. Both of them understand that they are driving vehicles the Lord has graciously provided and both of them are most grateful.

In January, I was very blessed to have my very good friends Fred & Evelyn Stevens with me for a week. They were very helpful with the purchase of Pastor Martin’s vehicle. Another great blessing was the visit from team of men from my church. We will be working together on a very special project.

I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone for either your continued financial support, your compassion or your prayers. I am so encouraged by your partnership which allows me do what I am called to do. Please check our TLCCM website at: www.tlccm .net for updates.

I look forward to continuing our partnership for the good of the children and the glory of our Lord. Thank you. May the Lord God bless you 1,000 fold.

In His service in Mexico,

Rev. Denise Deschamps,
Co-Founder and Director

The Lord Himself watches over you! Ps.121:5a
