Letter from Pastor Juan Ramirez to the January DRE MAMA Team Members
The following letter was given to each DRE MAMA Team Member by Pastor Juan Ramirez during our good bye session this past Monday morning. Pastor Juan spent four days working along with our team in our medical clinics this past week. Pastor Juan was a man of many smiles except for picture-taking; then he would always put on a serious expression.

Col. Gracias a Dios _ Thanks to God
San Pedro Sula, January 22, 2006
To: All the members of the team:
We thank God for your presence in our country and in our church. Your coming here motivates us to continue praying to God to continue with your mission helping the needy.
We really appreciate everything you did for my people here in the colony Gracias a Dios. Your work here has motivated me to continue working not only for their soul but to help their body as well. This colony has a big grade of infant malnutrition which is 60 % in all terms and 20 % which is very severe. Our church has been trying to help, but we are limited with money and we don't have any help from anyone else. I just get the daily offering from my members in the church, but I'm willing to continue helping.
We want to create a foundation to focus on helping the children with problems. Please continue praying for us. I hope you will return back soon, since you were here and saw all the needs. Please remember you have a good friend here who loves the Lord and the children. I just want to share with you, your heart will stay with us here since you came to help us. You have earned our love and respect.
