This is a comprehensive list. I live near Mexico, and oftentimes have been reminded when things got rough financially for us and we went through hardships, what families there, so close to us, would be incredibly blessed if they had what we had, even if it was not a lot. I was encouraged to count my blessings and not take what we had for granted. The suffering in this world is so tragic. Thank you for bringing us this incredible work! It is sobering and thought-provoking.
