The first image is that if a Triqui (Tree’-kay) Indian girl. The Triquis comes to the Vizcaino Valley to work in the fields. They live in migrant worker camps. They have a very meager existence. They come from the state of Oaxaca, Mexico.
The second image is of a Triqui mother and her kids, sitting in their migrant worker housing.
The third image is of a woman who lives in Las Sierras de San Francisco. The people there live very simply, and make their living of raising goats, and selling the meat and cheese.
We, the missionaries we support, and other churches reach out to these people groups with the love of Jesus, with food, clothing, with gospel presentations, and with medical outreaches.
