Posted by familyafair on June 15, 2009 at 3:09 PM
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 came with servants hearts to complete the job and it was a blessing to get to work along side and get to know the team members.
We were also blessed to be able to receive a team from our church; First Baptist Lindale. The team was made up of several of our missions committee members as well as others from our church who want to serve in missions. The purpose of the trip was to explore ministry opportunities for future short term teams from our church with the possibility of bringing an outreach at the end of June. While they were here, the First Baptist team ministered in the local prison, a womens rehab center, at Ministerios De Amor orphanage and in a local village. It was a blessed time for us to have a part of our church family here seeing what we do. We were so encouraged by their love and care for us.
Then, the Swine Flu epidemic hit Mexico. Five short term teams as well as our First Baptist group had to cancel their trips to Guadalajara. All of Nathan's planning came to a halt and he suddenly found himself with more time to devote to his other responsibilities, mainly his work in the communications department as well as helping with on going base projects.

At the end of May we had the opportunity to attend the YWAM Mexico national conference in Puerto Vallarta. This is a bi-annual conference for all of the bases of Mexico and a time for us to get together and share vision for this nation, give updates on our ministries, connect as YWAM'ers and hear great teachings to spur us on. Nathan was the conference coordinator so he was pretty busy, but we did find time to enjoy the pool and the ocean!

The beginning of June found us completing our first year of teaching in Academia De Fe, YWAM's private school for missionary kids. We graduated two eighth graders to ninth grade and two ninth graders to tenth grade at an end of the year celebration. It was bittersweet as I will not be teaching this up coming year due to the new baby. I will soon have a 2nd grader and  a Kindergartner to home school as well as a 19 month old underfoot and an infant in my arms! Life is getting busier!
Which brings me to our family update. Our fourth child is due around July 26th so preparations are under way to receive our newest addition. We do not know the sex of our baby this time around, so it will be a surprise! We are so excited about our maternity care here in Mexico. We found a wonderful place in Guadalajara with Plentitud birth center. Dr. Jose Luis Greffenes is a very natural birth minded dr. who works with an American midwife, Joni, to provide excellent care for both mother and baby. So, yes our baby will be born in Mexico and have dual citizenship! My Mom will join us August 1st to help care for baby and I and Nathan's Dad will arrive the day she leaves, so we are covered for help and some good Grandparent time with the kiddos!
Thank you to those who pray for and support us in so many ways. It is hard sometimes to be so far away from family and it helps to know we haven't been forgotten. (I'll try to help you remember us more by updating this more frequently!) We are planning our yearly trip home to Texas in November/December, so hopefully we will get to see some of your faces and hug your necks then!

Until then, because He is worthy,
