The Alvarez Family consists of Stacie & Odilio and their 6 beautiful children Maddie, Meredith, Abram, Samuel, Vincent and Julian. A little over a year ago they heard God calling them to become missionaries. They said YES and got to the Philippines two weeks ago. Friends and family have organized this garage sale to raise money for them since they rely solely on donations. It is estimated that it will take $700 a month to support their family of eight as they do our Lord's work. Please be generous and if you feel led to make further donations on their behalf you may do so by going to the Family Missions Company website below and designating the donation be for them.
