Hulls Grove Baptist Church that arrived Saturday to a busy day. We held our monthly food outreach and garage sale in the afternoon upon arriving at the Community Center. A smaller than usual group came, but we had prepared hot dogs and chips for everyone.
  Sunday we attended church at Melodys Orphanage in Reynosa and also celebrated Rosalbas birthday party.  We returned to the colonia for Zotchills Quincinera held also at the Community Center.  A beautiful evening. Hulls Grove Church built their house 5 years ago and have wanted to pay for the Quincinera.
  Today we had a 2 hour devotion before heading to Melodys Orphanage to paint and do some other projects. It rained off and on all day revealing some roof leaks in the kitchen. We got several walls and one bedroom painted. We'll head back tomorrow morning for more fun.
  We're going to Senda De Vida home for the wandering migrants on Wednesday to bring food and health supplies, and pay the electric bill there. Thursday, we're off to Big Heart Orphanage in the mountains near Saltillo and return the same day.


  I know my last post was a slight rant, but it was a somewhat of a call to obey for some. We recieved a certified letter the morning we left for California.  It was enough to almost cover the entire electric bill at Senda De Vida home for the wandering migrants trying to get asylum status.  Another call has a donor sending money for food for them as well. Oh me of little faith. But at the same time, people need to be made aware of the needs, so thank you to those that responded.
  We spend the last several days with Scott and Kristy Anderson in Riverside, California for the annual golf outing fundraising event for Power Ministry.  We connected with a lot of the Power guys and all asked about my health. We also played some golf, visited the beach, and watched God provide for Power Ministry and the hundreds of thousands of dollars needed to fund their ministry. The golf and dinner was awesome, and we were blessed to be there.
  Our week ended with golf, filled by dinner, followed by Scott and Kristys home bible study and prayer time. We were prayed for and also able to share about our ministry with the group.
  We're so thankful for the divine appointments with so many new people. A few men from Power plan to bring their wives down to visit us and the ministry's Power supports, that will be fun.
  Thanks for praying for us and allowing God to use you to further His Kingdom and bless si many.


  I just got a call from the refugee camp in Reynosa, Senda De Vida. As people wait for their appointed time before an immigration judge, they wait in their little tents with only one fan to keep them cool. The director just called me asking for help paying the electric bill there which has doubled each month they take in more refugees.
  My last post shows the crowded facility and some of the people there. Our donations can't cover all the needs they have so we're asking God to pour out His Blessings through his people. Many people have come to South Texas lately with concerns about the people in camps in Mexico.  Thousands of dollars are spent to "come and see", but so far 0 in aid. It's just sad to think of all we have and all the good that could be done if we just opened our hands and Let it go.
  I put out a plea for backpacks and school supplies for the kids in the orphanage a couple weeks ago, guess how many we collected? 0!!! Jaime told me that a store in Reynosa gave him some for the kids. God can use anyone, but He wants us to be involved in what He wants to accomplish. That's where the blessing is.
  Enough ranting, I'm heading to the bank to get some electricity money.
   We had a beautiful wedding at the Community Center Sunday evening.  Madi and Miguel had their official church style service. It was a lot if work, but it was a joy to serve them and their friends and family.
