The Oblate Family was the First to Help

Maria Sanchez and her family attend our Oblate parish in Tijuana, B.C., Mexico. Recently her house caught on fire, and everything was lost.

The Oblates immediately sprang into action to help Maria and her children. They provided them with food, clothing and temporary housing. Then a wonderful blessing occurred. The Oblates, because of their generous benefactors, were able to build Maria and her family a new house.

During the construction, Maria slept on the ground at the construction site to prevent gangs from stealing tools and construction material. Today, Maria has a three-bedroom, one-bath house with a small kitchen and living room.

When sharing her story, Maria always makes one point crystal clear: “The Oblate family was the first one to help.”
