Phil 1: 4-6

4In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy 5because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, 6being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.


This verse keeps coming to mind lately as I look back over our last two years here in Mexico and consider all that He has done. I am not somuch talking about outward ministry, but the inwar...

I am shocked (at myself) that it has been so long since I have updated my blog. Sorry to all of you who have checked in and found no new updates. Today, I am here to remedy that. March and April were busy months with several short term teams. We had three Homes of Hope teams who served on construction teams to build a house for a local family that is very dear to our ministry. Our cook on base, Ellie, and her family received a new home complete with a working bathroom and kitchen. The work teams... Read Full Post »

Update On Our Crazy Summer

Posted by familyafair on August 21, 2008 at 11:45 PM Comments comments (147)

*Whew* I feel like we've just come skidding into the new school year after the roller coaster ride we've just gotten off of! The last time I posted, the Phase 3 (or third year SST student program) was about to kick off. Now the students have come and gone, we've been on vacation and come back to start school the very next Monday. Wow.

The Phase 3 program went so much better than we anticipated and Nathan said it was his favorite year yet that we have worked with SST's. The students t...

Quick Update

Posted by familyafair on July 13, 2008 at 9:24 PM Comments comments (180)

Hi everyone!

Hope you enjoyed the new videos on our site! Now that we have figured out how to get them on here, we will try to post more of them. We just said goodbye to our friends David and Roxy from Ohio. They and their two boys spent a week with us here, serving the base and ministering with Nathan in the prison and at Ministerios De Amor. The boys really enjoyed having other boys close to their age to play with and we had a great visit!

The base is alive with the sound o...

Goings On..

Posted by familyafair on June 21, 2008 at 3:29 PM Comments comments (75)

Today our Benjamin turned six! Nathan made him Dutch pancakes, the absolute ONLY thing Nathan knows how to cook! :) And then the boys watched a movie Benjamin got from his Aunt Nana and Uncle Ben. We celebrated Ben and Averic's birthdays with a party at the local waterpark a week ago since they are so close together.

We have had some response from people regarding our desire to help at Ministerios De Amor and are hoping that God will provide us with all that we need to help these...

Our first day with the orphans of Ministerios de Amor

Hola amigos y familia!

Just stopping in to update you all! Things have been going really well. It feels as though the dust is settling and we are fitting into the framework here, becoming part of the base and seeing the ways that God wants to use our family in Mexico.

 Benjamin and I are finishing up  Kindergarten and I am so proud of all that he has accomplished this year. Averic is looking forward to "doing school" with us next year. (I got him some numbers and sh...

Parasite It is!

Posted by familyafair on April 22, 2008 at 10:21 PM Comments comments (73)

It's confirmed, Nathan has a parasite. He thinks he picked it up in Reynosa a couple of months ago at a not-so-clean restaurant and is now calling it his "little pet". Well, the little pet has caused vomiting, diarhea, severe headaches and sharp stomach pains. Hopefully it will be knocked out in the next two weeks with his medicine regimen.

Deacon was x-rayed today to see if there is some type of blockage in his digestive system. He has been vomiting for about five days now although ...

Third Time's A Charm?

Posted by familyafair on April 21, 2008 at 9:41 PM Comments comments (1607)

This is my third attempt at blogging since we've been here! Our internet connection is sketchy at best which can be a tad here we go again..maybe the third time's a charm?

Nathan and Deacon are currently suffering from a mysterious stomach bug. By mysterious, I mean that we are on day five of throwing up *sometimes* with no other symptoms. So, tomorrow we have our first appointment with the pediatrician and also a family dr. in Guadalajara. I'll report on that when we...

God is In The Details

Posted by familyafair on February 14, 2008 at 1:13 PM Comments comments (130)

God reminded me yesterday that He is the details. Benjamin's health issues have been a great concern of mine in moving to Mexico. I am not very familiar with the healthcare community there and the thought of trying to bring a spanish speaking doctor up to date on Ben's issues overwhelms me. The latest health issue with Benjamin is his tonsils. They have been the size of large marbles for several weeks, blocking his airways at night, causing him to snore and even makin...
