The La Roca Ranch has an urgent need for two vehicles. The current water tanker truck (see picture) needs replaced as it is on its last leg. It has rolled several times and is barely holding together. We would like a 1-1/2-2 ton dually pickup … typical 4500 series vehicle. This vehicle make many steep hill climbs several times a day hauling water to the discipleship ministry at the Ranch. If you have any possible vehicle that might fit this need please send a contact request HERE.
The second vehicle need is for a pickup or small SUV to take the Ranch kids to school each day. This is approximately a 20 mile round trip. An economical vehicle is needed to save the wear and tear on the larger vehicles and to save on gasoline. Please consider helping with this transportation for the kids. Currently, there are six staff kids that are being taken daily to school from the Ranch. If you can help please Contact Us.
The La Roca Ranch is a rehabilitation and discipleship Ranch for men of all ages. The program is for one year and seeks to change the lives of men so that they are socially responsible and spiritually strong.
Blessing to all, these summer months have been a challenge, but at the same time, they have been a great success! Our youth camp was a big hit this year. With Rossy putting it all together and with the help of many others, they were able to fill the two nights and three days full of activities and challenging bible studies!
They were bless with one afternoon at the near by pool, where we do our baptisms. We had 80 youth at our camp and it was such a great blessing. With half of them being new, we had our work cut out in reaching so many in such a short time. We of course are looking ahead for next year, with bigger numbers. Please keep us in your prayers with so much ministry taking place all around us!
In His Passion, Carlos and Rossy and the rest of the team!
Greetings; For all those who have a heart for the working poor, here is an update on the new dump site. It is miles from the old location and it’s miles of dirt roads which is too far for anyone to walk. It takes more than one hour to get there and those who use to work at the old dump site now have to take shuttles to reach this new dump. Because of the distance many have to eat what they find, not having the comfort of home being close by.
There are from five to three hundred people working at one time. Many, because of the distance, have to bring their children with them. They build small shelters which protect them from the sun as the adults work. Very few live there because of the distances from the city and stores, there are no schools and their children stay in the shelters build by the parents with out much to do!
We here at La Roca, would like to build and establish facilities to open up a daycare and medical care for then. This will also include good clean drinking water and some food and most important schooling while they wait for their parents.
Would you please consider helping us in this great need? At this present time, there is nobody or organization helping because of the great distance. La Roca could be the first to take this challenge to heart and make a difference in many people’s lives. In His Passion, Carlos and Rossy Montoya
In James 1:27 it says, “Pure and undefiled religion before our God and Father is this: to look after orphans and widows in theirdistress and to keep oneself unstained by the world” And that is what we do. We always have our doors open for those who need help. Many of the children we have here at the House of Grace have come from homes with abuse and neglect. From parents who do drugs, or who are in prostitution or who’ve abandoned them when they were little causing them to grow up in orphanages.
Here are pictures of our new Church location. This new church location will help us bring together our organization by bringing our offices, bible school, counseling and of course our Sunday school all under the same roof. Also this new location would allow us to expand beyond where we are now. We house 40 men per night, with this location we could expand to over 100 per night.
The building that we are in now can only hold our current congregation of 160 people, with the new location we could seat up to 500 people. This location will allow us to have our own parking. But most important, we would be able to reach our community by having the space to teach English, computer classes as well as to have a daycare. This would allow us to better serve our community in which God has called us to.
The price of this location is $219,000.00, with a 30 percent deposit which equals to $65,700 and $1,257.14 dollars per month. Please pray how you can help trust God in using you to help us acquire and move into this location.
Our kids have to walk down stairs and cross the street to go to Sunday school, rain or shine. This new location would help us grow by keeping our children under the same roof. So would you all help us pray for God to move on His people to keep expanding His kingdom. Carlos
