Community of Cihuapilli, Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua.

Dear Sisters, from this desert where plants bloom and trees give fruit.

In Ciudad Juárez, we share with you the wonders that the Incarnate Word has allowed us to experience, and we joyfully inform you that this month we were able to start the work of alternative medicine with migrants hosted at the Shelter awaiting their procedure for political asylum, these alternative medicine workshops offered at four different neighborhoods located to the west of the city, which are: Lomas de Poleo, Plutarco Elías Calles, Juanita Luna and Pánfilo Natera. Some of the products manufactured are: tinctures, micro doses, syrup, ointment, different types of creams and antibacterial gel. Being in touch with each of them and sharing their story has been a blessing of the presence of the Incarnate Word that continues calling us to be hands that provide relief and comfort his people.

We continue to work in person with the different groups of women, youth, and children from the emotional health care project that has been of great personal, family and neighbor help. Likewise, training for the different groups includes Bible studies, playful training for children, self-knowledge and small actions that lead young people to commit to caring for the environment.

Two members of the Miguel Pro Mission board of directors visited us, the different groups organized and thanked the presence and support they have received despite the pandemic, the meeting ended with a get-together.

Lately, one of the difficulties we are suffering in the community has been the lack of water.

Our community is blessed with the opportunity to participate in these spaces where we can also contribute to favor the environment.

As a church, we continue walking and working as a team with Parish Priest Guillermo Morton, and the community keeps taking shape and growing in awareness of serving and experiencing synodality.
