A CANDLE HAS BEEN LIT IN REMEMBRANCE OF THE MANY CHILDREN IN NEED OF ASSISTANCE AT THE SOUTHWEST BORDER AMERICA. Many children are facing deportation; the utter loneliness of being a little one alone in a huge world has unique pathos.
The situation at the US Southwest Border was allegedly declared a humanitarian crisis by President Obama.
Children in Need
Children reportedly face deportation without an attorney; some as young as 5-years-old.
The children face dreadful dangers as many of them reportedly flee from gang violence in Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador.
Many of the children die. An 11 year old Guatemalan boy was allegedly found dead in the brush a mile from the Mexican border; with no shirt, just a white rosary.
Hidalgo County Sheriff Eddie Guerra reportedly apprised that his officers encounter decomposed bodies 'quite often'.
In the Spirit of Lumiere
In the Spirit of Lumiere, is there anything you can do to help?

Your ministry is desperately needed by these helpless innocents.
