Its so cliche,  but so true. Thanking God for all of your blessings. As we sat around our Thanksgiving feast,  we all gave thanks for something. We had a smaller than usual gathering,  Shawn and Carla Estes,  thier daughter Madison and Iker her 2 month old son pronounced Eeker, Sergio and Gabriel. The girls cooked while Shawn and I golfed. We made up 4 plates of everything and Shawn and I drove around and blessed people on the street with a meal.
  Over the last few weeks, God has provided us with 100 thousand pounds of beans and rice. 40 thousand pounds has already been taken to Mexico. Power Ministry delivered beans and rice, Hope Development gave us 2 truck loads of beans. It has been an incredible time of blessings inspite of Covid-19.
  The orphanages have been the biggest beneficiary of God's provision into our lives, as we have been blessed enough to donate thousands of dollars to thier building projects. I remember when giving 100 dollars was a stretch for me, then 1000 dollars was a huge step of faith, writing a check for $10,000.00 to an Orphanage was beyond anything I could have imagined doing, and yet there was another instruction from the Holy Spirit. Jesus said not the hearers, but the doers of God's Word are the blessed ones. So, being Thankful for all of your support that makes it possible for us to be doers. People that do, are enabling us to do, which results in Thanksgiving to God.
  Pastor Jaime Mayorga from Melodys Orphanage is holding a huge event December 19th in the Baseball Stadium in Reynosa to bless the children of Mexico. We have ordered 1000 soccer balls, and plan to buy 1000 dolls. We're hoping for more than 2000 kids.
 Its always a joy to be part of God's plan to be a blessing to others. Thanks for joining us in God's work. 


After being home for only 2 days, Phil and Marianne arrived from Oklahoma to join us on a trip to Puebla to deliver,  food, bibles, blankets, bibles and hundreds of coats.
  We drove to the Orphanage in the mountains and spent the night there. Phil and Marianne hadn't been there,  so we gave them the tour of all that's going on there. The drive south took us 8 hours further into Mexico 🇲🇽 and we spent the night in San Juan del Ricon south of Qeretaro. 2 hours to Jorge and Selena church in Masahua. We unloaded everything in the van except for a couple cases of bibles for Pastor Jose. We toured the house they are building and will help with $ to complete it. Off to Puebla. 
  We drove 5 hours to the Holiday Inn in Puebla.  The people there love to see Phil and Marianne.  They usually stay there for several weeks in the summer doing ministry but Covid-19 crushes more ministry.  We filled the van at Sam's Club in Puebla with beans and rice, and took the food to Pastor Joses house. We took José and his family out to lunch at a Brazilian Steak House at a great restaurant near them. We said our goodbyes and drove 10 hours towards home the next morning. 
  Hundreds of families will be blessed by our trip despite the 2000 miles of driving that burned lots of gas. We love traveling in Mexico and being a blessing to those in need. Today we go to Mexico to bag up 2000 lbs of beans Andres picked up yesterday from a partner who we gave a truck load of beans to, and he crossed it to Mexico. I'll be crossing a pallet of rice today as well. 
  Shawn and Carla are staying with us until they load thier trailer and head back to Kentucky. God has called them there after serving in Mexico for over 15 years. Be praying for them as they transition. 


The last several weeks, have been lots of miles and lots of smiles. We drove non stop to Gadsden,  Alabama and spent some time with Wayne and Diane Kelly. Played a round of golf ⛳,  well a round and a half. Left there and had breakfast with Tim Morgan from Power Ministry.  After leaving there, I got very sick and went to a emergency care in Anderson,  SC. I was extremely dehydrated and in excruciating pain. 

 A drive to Spartanburg to visit Angie Lara and the kids. They made us supper and because of my condition we left after a few hours. We drove to Hilton Head the next morning and I was feeling better after drinking lots of water. 

  8 wonderful days spent with Roger and Paulette at their house near the ocean. A few rounds of golf, glorious meals, and wonderful fellowship. We left there for Hickory,  N.C. to spend a few days with our friends from Hulls Grove Baptist Church. A scenic drive to the mountains after lunch with, Ernie,  Susan. Lori and Gavin. Sunday morning we went to Church in Hulls Grove and were able to share about the new ministry with 3 orphanages. 

 We left there and drove to Alan and Linnea Wells in Tennessee. Spent the night, had breakfast and hit the road again. Got home last Tuesday and went to Mexico Thursday to prepare for Saturdays food outreach. 100 family's were given food, then Sergio and I drove to the mountains ⛰ to visit the orphanage. Spent 2 days, got home yesterday,  packed the van up today because Phil and Marianne Chain came and were heading to Puebla Mexico tomorrow to deliver, food, coats, bibles, and $. A stop at the orphanage in the mountains tomorrow to pick up what we dropped off the other day.  Lots of miles!!!!!

  We trust for a God for a safe trip as we travel through Mexico 🇲🇽,  and for a favorable outcome of this election. We are so grateful for all of your prayers and support for the ministry God has given us.  GRACIAS AND GOD BLESS YOU 🙏.
