That verse continues to say, " can you not see it? Can you not perceive it?"
  We are well aware that things are not as they used to be.  Very few groups coming to build houses in the colonia. This year, only three houses. But we have been free to travel around Mexico spreading the good news of the Gospel,  while meeting needs along the way.
  We just returned home from a quick but joyous time. Several days with the family, including a camping trip to Indiana to  the covered bridge festival, and a 3 mile hike through Turkey Run National Park. We left there to attend Ally and Luke's wedding,  attended church in Laharpe Christian Church,  stayed for the Harvest Hoe Down, and headed home. Whew 4300 miles in 10 days away.
  Power Ministry delivered 15 thousand pounds of rice on Wed, and we had supper with their scout out trip team on Sat. They are planning their building projects for January.
  Paula has been busy trying to get several quilts done by Saturday.  We have some people coming to the food outreach and they want some quilts to take to their church to sell for the sewing class.
  Our new assignment seems to be helping the orphanages we are connected to, as well as helping meet the needs of local ministries with beans and rice.
  We are praying for God to raise up some new monthly partners, as we no longer have the support from cancelled groups. We are setting up some building projects in the U.S. side, where there are plenty of needs as well. Ta Ta for now.


  We headed across the border yesterday after we dedicated Andres and Goyitas house next to the Community Center. They made the team tamales, and we are before dedication.
  A week full of blessings. They worked at Melodys Orphanage for two days, painting, building, and enjoying the company of the kids. We went to Senda De Vida home for the wandering migrants on Wednesday to bring food and health items for everyone.  We took Hector to the electric company and paid the $1100.00 Bill. We got Mexican visas and drove to Big Heart Orphanage in the mountains on Thursday,  toured the orphanage,  ate a great meal, and the mixed up and poured another section of driveway.  We drove back to Reynosa, ate again, spent time in God's Word. Yesterday, we turned in our visas, visited Big Heart Orphanage in Reynosa,  drove around in the colonia, had the dedication and I just got back from dropping them off at the airport. What a great week!
