The second group of the Comunidades Eclesiales de Base devoted their time to raising funds to help the needy in the community. Henry and I were moved to join the group after several couples made a surprise visit to our house one summer evening in 1973. Henry had experienced a mishap and had been in the hospital. He was recovering at home and was unable to work for a few weeks. He had not been at his job long enough to merit sick leave. These people had a monetary donation for us. They explained that it was their mission to help people in need. We had not heard of the group or their work. Their gift was timely. Donations were coming in as we needed them. God was watching over us. Henry recovered sooner than we had hoped and was able to return to work. Not long after, we joined the group. We wanted to help others as we had been helped. . . .
