Incredible Pizza Company Supports Mexico Ministry for 5th Consecutive Year
Emmanuel Ministries cares for disadvantaged children in Juarez
For the fifth consecutive year, America’s Incredible Pizza Company, a family entertainment center with nine national locations and two in Mexico, is supporting Emmanuel Ministries, a faith-based community serving underprivileged children in Juarez, Mexico.
Juarez, a border city in Northern Mexico with a population of 1.3 million, is one of the most dangerous cities in Mexico. It has been called the Murder Capital of the World. The city’s drug cartels are rabid and continually growing out of control. City-wide poverty spares no one, and gang violence is increasing at alarming rates. In its wake, hundreds of thousands of incredible children to suffer..
A safe haven, however, does exist in Juarez. It’s known as Emmanuel Ministries, and for over 50 years, it has been providing shelter, nourishment education, medical care, and spiritual guidance to disadvantaged children. Sometimes, they’ll even be found abandoned on the ministry’s doorstep. Today, Emmanuel provides for over 140 children at any given time.
Incredible Pizza, a company that bases its principals on Christian values, helps fund Emmanuel Ministries’ mission. In fact, 2012 marks the fifth consecutive year IPC has given support to Emmanuel. From playgrounds to tile shower rooms for the boys and girls dormitories, Incredible Pizza’s support helps to secure many important aspects of daily operation for the ministry.
“Our business is all about the kids, and for the children of Juarez, we are trying to give back and help these children anyway we can,” said Incredible Pizza Founder Rick Barsness.
”My wife, Cheryl, and I have traveled to Juarez several times in the past, but it has gotten so dangerous we can no longer visit. We’ve worked to send an 18 wheeler full of groceries, medical furniture for their in-house dentistry, and even a playground. It is always wonderful to hear the great success stories coming out of Emmanuel Ministries.”
