News from FUNDAMOST  -  Fundación Árbol de Mostaza

In the midst of all that is happening in the in crisis in Venezuela, Fundamost is helping meet needs in a variety of ways. Our director, Rubén, and his wife Mely are taking food and basic supplies to families in need and donated medical supplies to clinics and paramedics.  For more on Fundamost ministry, go to the News Archives here Rubén is tutoring 10 children (preschool & elementary) in the afternoons in his home - his “escuelita” (little school). Most of these children come hungry because they don’t have enough to eat at home, so Mely fixes them a nutritious snack. Rubén is also teaching adult English classes in his escuelita. Fundamost helpers, José and Keiner teach guitar to kids and adults. Rubén and Mely are helping young people like José and Keiner with the cost of their college tuition. Although the state university is free, José and Keiner need to attend private colleges for their field of studies. (see more in News Archive) Thanks to help from our ministerial fellowship, Liberty Fellowship, Rubén now has a car which enables him and Mely to distribute food and supplies. Many of these are donated here in the U.S. and shipped to them, but some can be bought there. Even though for Venezuelans prices are extremely high, with the exchange rate, many things can be bought down there for less than it costs us to buy and ship from here. Now that he has a car again, Rubén can take people to church with him! (Click on the photos to enlarge.)

Baby Maria's mom was malnourished when pregnant, but Fundamost took her nutritious food and Maria was born healthy! Dr. Mely took medical supplies that were donated by a S.S. class in Alabama to the clinic where she works. Students come to Ruben's house after school for tutoring. Guitar lessons by Jose and Keiner. Helping people get to church.
Update from Ruben - August 31, 2017 "Right now, the hardest thing for us to mentally process on a daily basis is that our neighbors are hungry, and there is nothing we can do about it.  Sometimes we fast in order to share food with our neighbors.  Food is both scarce and expensive, which makes it hard for the average person to obtain.  Sometimes people might technically have money in the bank but cannot access it. Banks are often closed due to lack of cash. The general feeling when you go out in the street is desperation.  The children in our neighborhood are not only suffering physically but also emotionally and psychologically.  They need education, care, and hope for the future.  We use the few resources we have in our hands to provide a light of hope for the children and young people of our community.  We have created an after-school program in our home, where we reinforce learning deficiencies in reading and writing, always motivating the children to succeed in spite of their circumstances.  Currently we have 10 children (preschool & elementary) and five young adults.  We also created a musical school for 2 children and 3 young adults. These programs are designed to develop skills that contribute to improving the lives of children and young people in our community. We believe in education as the main resource our nation needs to succeed."
