What is going on?

"Unless there is an element of risk in our exploits for God, 
there is no need for faith" - Hudson Taylor 

I knew going into this fall it would be full of travel and events along with moving and everything else, and I am glad to say that I believe as of today I am done traveling for the fall! Now I can soley focus on things in Amealco for the rest of the year. 

Things are getting up and rolling in Amealco as we prepare for many things that are getting ready to happen. 

- First of all, I get to move into my house (Lord willing) this next weekend! It is dependent on a plumber, the brick people and the door people. But, it is getting to the end of what we can do on our own. I am excited to finally begin settling into Amealco and even more excited to not live in a suit case anymore (its only been 3.5 months!).

- I am picking up my new puppy today! She is a blue pitbull that is named Hippo (because they look like little hippos). I love dogs and that puts me up to having three bundles of joy! Even though I enjoy having dogs and I would have a hundred of them, if i could... Hippo, specifically, is a protection dog. 

-We (as a team here in Amealco) are busy preparing and getting ready for all the really fun ministries that are going to be getting started in the next several months. Our market spaces are being constructed, as you read this, to house the coffee shop and community center. The logos are being made and we are making progress with all the plans. 

- I have had several opportunities open up about an orphanage or other "on the side" ministries that I will check out in the next month. 

It has been amazing to see God work in and through this season of my life. Please continue to be in prayer for this season of setting up new ministries, settling into a new town and getting to know everything all over again.

What happened to September?

Coffee shop logo

September seemed to fly by with lots of activity. I spent the first two weeks in Nebraska enjoying a few football games, lots of time with friends and family, and speaking a couple times about what God is doing here. 

Last week all the Camino Global missionaries in Mexico got together for our yearly fellowship conference. It is a great time to visit with the missionary family here in Mexico, worship together and play games!

Between those two things, we have been busy here trying to get my house ready to be moved into in Amealco. My house is... rustic, but it is getting there. I hope to move in and begin to call it home in just a few weeks! You can pray specifically for next Sunday when we have a huge workday to get as much plumbing, electrical, cleaning, putting up fence up, etc done as possible. 

There is also a lot of planning and praying for future ministries in Amealco. If you missed the last update (or want to read about it again), You can read about it here.  There is also the financial need for those ministries, if you would like to give, please go to the Camino Global website, and put in Specific designation: project # 063651. You can also shoot me an e-mail for more information.
Please be in prayer as we raise money and start these exciting new ministries. Pray that God would be glorified, many would come to know Him and that it would be fun!
