      We are Lightshine A Living Hope, a 501-c3 non-profit located in the United States, but we operate in and exist solely to help the poor and marginalized Tarahumara Indians in Chihuahua, Mexico. We At Lightshine give them The Gospel Of Jesus, We Help Train them up spiritually, we feed them actual nutrition, give them higher education, foster their children, help free them from addiction, and help develop them into leaders. The Taramuahara Indians migrated into the city of Chihuahua, Mexico from the Sierra Madre Mountains for reasons such as the enticement of cheap food and cell phones, and drought and drug cartel conditions in their homeland. Tarahumaras generally group together in Colonias, but every Tarahumara Colonia struggles greatly with drug violence, alcohol, and substance abuse, physical and sexual abuse, poverty, and marginalization by the Mexican culture at large and they live in deplorable conditions.

        With this said, God has blessed us greatly and our rented headquarters in Colonia Tarahumara is at 130% capacity for our Lightshine program and our church is at 180% capacity. We have gotten notices that we have to leave multiple times by the Mexican government, and by God's Immense Loving Hand, we are still there. With this said we truly need our own location, and this was recently made possible since the Mexican government after years has allowed us to purchase land near our rented facility. We have two of our members running a 39-mile race which is often run and won by The Tarahumaras to help raise money, and you can support their effort here to help to make the new church/headquarters a reality. We want to not just meet current needs, but to also thrive and grow tremendously.

       We at Lightshine want to see every Tarahumara completely free from addiction and the love of the wold via being transformed by The Love Of Jesus and Empowered by The Holy Spirit to indeed go and walk in love and be lights in the world amidst a culture of immense corruption. We help equip them to go and be leaders and to pour out into the world as God directs them and to spread The Living Hope of Jesus Christ Who Is Our Hope Through His Blood shed for our sins and was resurrected from the dead as 1 Peter 1:3 NASB states below:

 "Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His great mercy has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,"

         As seen in the pictures, the bottom floor of the building will have a kitchen and eating area, offices, and a worship center. The second floor will be solely for the 8 classrooms we have, which will be able to hold 25 children each. The cost of the building with modern construction in Chihuahua, Mexico is only $200,000 which is a lot less than it would be in the U.S. but is exactly what we need as an answer to prayer. If we meet our goal, we then have stretch goals for infrastructure, such as vehicles and more as the need is great, which you can find more info about on our website.
