Goings On..

Posted by familyafair on June 21, 2008 at 3:29 PM

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 boys. Their biggest needs are bed linens and shoes and socks. Also, the plastic mattress covers that can be used when potty training. The orphanage cannot aford Pull-Ups or other night-training pants and many of these boys are still very small and have a hard time keeping their pants dry at night. So, as you can imagine, many of the matresses are soiled. I would love to put plastic covers and sheets on each bed. I would also love to provide each boy a spanish children's Bible and some children's books. They only have two, out-dated encyclopedias between forty boys. If any of you would like to give towards this effort, please go to the "How You Can Help" section of this website, then just be sure to designate the funds "orphanage".  As we have spent more time there, we are getting to know the boys names and some of their stories. Last week Nathan and a visiting friend of ours brought hair clippers and spent the afternoon cutting their hair. We had a great time with them and look forward to our time with them each week.

Tomorrow morning we will be driving 12 hours up to the border. We will be helping the Bateman family settle in to their job/life there for the summer. Adam and Jeni are good friends of ours and they will be taking over the summer outreach coordination for SST that we used to do. This will be their first summer living in Reynosa and tackling these new responsibilites, so please pray for them as they embark on this new journey. We will be staying with dear friends of ours whom we met while we were in language school in McAllen and are hoping to visit Kingsway (our language school) while we are there as well. And of course, we are looking forward to a big, juicy, Route 44 Diet Coke from Sonic as well...priorities you know!

The Phase 3 (third year SST students) outreach will be starting next month and so far we have 20 students coming to Guadalajara. The entire lecture phase and outreach will take place here, all of which Nathan is coordinating and has been a tad stressed about lately, so please lift him up. This will be the busiest part of our summer and it will be an intense three weeks.

Well, I'm off to pack for our trip! Thanks for taking the time to come and read our updates and thank you to our supporters and those who faithfully pray for our makes ALL the difference!

Love, Amey
