Apple Tree Properties AND MORE!

I am thrilled to announce that after almost three years of “International House Hunters” we can now switch to “Property Brothers.”    As of November 22, The Cercadillo Project owns the house pictured above, along with the vacant lot to the left.    It definitely needs some attention to turn it into the office and storage space, staff residence and visitors’ rooms we so desperately need; however, the location is excellent and we were able to pay for it in full due to your generous giving!  

There are SO many great “God stories” of how this came about and I plan to share those with you soon, but I just couldn’t wait any longer to share this in a shortened form!

Are you excited? BUT WAIT! There is more!!!

If all continues as planned, by the end of year we will also own two acres of land between the two communities of Cercadillo and Vietnan!!! Two acres of land to construct a building to be used for our school, church, community center! AND . . . ready for this? We are going to be able to pay for the two acres in full! Absolutely, absolutely, absolutely INCREDIBLE! And just wait to hear how this happened! It’s good stuff, my friends!

I’ve been praying for and thinking about this since the winter of 2007. So what could possibly be next? Now it’s time to start praying for the building funds!!

If you’d like to be a part of that answer you can send your tax-deductible gifts as follows:

PERSONAL CHECKS – Write the check to Shepherd’s Staff and add the identification number in the memo line of the check: 4126A. Please mail checks to Shepherd’s Staff,  6739 Academy Road NE Suite #320, Alburquerque, NM  87109.

Padres Son Maestros

Padres Son Maestros (Parents are Teachers) is our modified version of the program Parents as Teachers. Due to COVID, the two-weeks of training were offered online which made it possible for me to certify and receive the materials to use with our young moms. Helping parents know how to help their young children grow in language, motor, social/emotional skills seems to be yet another avenue to walk alongside and support our families.

This research-based program has had very positive long-term effects in under-resourced communities in the States. Let’s pray it has the same in Cercadillo and Vietnan!
