A LETTER FROM THE PRESIDENT OF ARMONIA U.S. INC.
November 17, 2010
Dear friends and supporters of Armonia,
As we pause at this time of year to reflect on God’s many blessings, our thoughts will
naturally turn to those less fortunate. Perhaps you are a college student who has heard Saul Cruz speak about ministering to the poor. Perhaps Saul and Pilar visited your church and shared with you their lifelong commitment to the needy and forgotten of Mexico. Perhaps you have traveled to Mexico City or Oaxaca to see for yourself what life transforming and world transforming work is being done at Armonia. You may have helped on a construction site, made furniture for a student residence, or worked in the medical clinic. Whatever your involvement, chances are your life has somehow been touched by Armonia. God has used your support to effect wonderful things at Armonia.
Please visit Armonia U.S.’s website at http://www.armoniaus.org for an update on activities.
