Thanksgiving Weekend '05
San Clemente Presbyterian Church has been serving at Rancho Sordo Mudo for decades. The legacy created by Don and Edie Eades has seen many years and much fruit. Our college age and young adults have an opportunity to work hand in hand with Don and Edie and continue this legacy of service. Every year, we spend Thanksgiving Weekend (Friday to Sunday) serving the students and staff of Rancho Sordo Mudo.
What is Rancho Sordo Mudo (RSM)? Rancho Sordo Mudo is the only Christian-based residential school for deaf children in Mexico. Ed and Margaret Everett, the founders of RSM, believe that deaf children do not have to become beggars in Mexico. They can be taught how to read and write (in Spanish), to communicate in ASL (American Sign Language), and to learn a trade for their future. This has been the work of the ranch for over 30 years.
What do we do? We do various work projects, depending on the current needs, but mostly our mission is to bring Thanksgiving to the students and staff of RSM. Each year, Edie and her team of volunteers prepare a Thanksgiving feast (One that would make even Mom's cooking nervous).
