Bet Shalom: Group home for the elderly in Zihuatanejo
It all started with Don Gerardo, a 70 year old single amputee, who wasn’t sick enough to be a hospital patient, but wasn’t well enough to return alone to his home. His family had abandoned him and government services had no place for him.
I pray every day for people to respond to the call of working with our neglected seniors. The hope/vision isn't just food, clothing and a roof, but true peace and ultimately forgiveness wherever it is needed both in the family if we locate them and between the person and God. Those who's heart has been touched by the elderly find a deep fulfillment as they minister to these special people. Catalog of Needs ......
Hablando Menos, Amando Más is a non-profit organization dedicated to help the at-risk, neglected elderly in the Zihuatanejo, Mexico area. In order to accomplish this we have decided to build and maintain a Home for the needs of the elderly, Bet Shalom. Our home and on-site staff provide a safe, caring, Christ-guided environment for this special group of people.
At Hablando menos, amando mas A.C. (Talking Less Loving More) we take what Christ said in Matthew seriously: '...I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.' Mat 25:40."
