Aljaba, which means quiver in Spanish, is the name of the two Children’s Homes that Black Buffalo began; one in Creel, Mexico, and one in Leticia, Columbia. Although we have turned the leadership over to other organizations who are better equipped to run them, we still give support.
We are also involved in one in Bachiniva, Mexico.
Black Buffalo took the name Aljaba or “quiver” from Psalm 127, “Children are a gift from the Lord; a reward from him. they are like sharp arrows in a warrior’s hands. Happy is the man whose quiver is full of them!”
He started the ‘Aljabas’ out of a deep sense of compassion for the many abandoned, abused, and neglected children in the mountains of Mexico, and the rain forests of the Amazon River Region. It has been our goal in the past to nurture, train, develop and then ‘shoot’ these young ones back into their neighborhoods as flaming arrows for God. And we know this is still being carried out.
We work with Jeff Jinnett, who yearly takes gifts at Christmas for the children.
Through the faithful monetary support of kind and generous people like you, we can help these children: to come to know Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. Then, help give them both a spiritual and academic education. All the while experiencing day to day mentoring on good hygiene and health habits, social skills and living a life that honors the Lord Jesus Christ.
In the future, we hope to offer Mission’s Adventure Trips to these homes and to the Tarahumara, many still live in caves. You will have the opportunity to visit the children and see the homes that they live in, and also minister to the Tarahumara people.
