Fun at the Beach!

We went to San Carlos over the girl's Spring Break. Keith's parents even got to come along! We all were so glad to have them.

Some of the girls got to go snorkeling... they really enjoyed it.

It was a great trip with many memories!

Random Things...

Dan and Tamra Coughlin moved here a little over 2 months ago... Their precious little baby joined them Feb. 22. We all enjoy having them around. We celebrated the birth of baby Kaeb at our house Sat. and had a baby shower! Games at the shower... try feeding someone a pudding cup with a blindfold...

Food is always a good way to celebrate...

Another activity we did lately... the girls put together some Action Packs (with items such as towels, blankets, etc.) to send to persecuted countries. We read many stories from the Voice of the Martyrs magazines, and they were all amazed at the courage of Christians around the world to stand in the face of persecution...

Please pray for God's work at CVE, that we would be instruments of His love and that the kids will come to understand God's great love for each of them.

Valentine's Dinner and More

We had a Valentine's Dinner for the girls on Saturday... They all had a great time and loved the food! They are not picky eaters at all which is nice...
Karla and Lupita... Please say an extra prayer for Karla. She has a desire to serve the Lord. She is showing a huge interest right now in Bible Study and really wants to follow Christ.

Jaqui and Michelle

Hanging out in the plaza...

Hiking with the girls...
Pray that the girls will come to know the love of Christ. May you know His love more and more deeply everyday as well.

School Trip

We recently took a trip to Hermosillo, a big city to the south of Magdalena. The middle school kids got a day off from classes and we loaded into the 15 passenger van to make the 2+ hour drive. We took a tour of a private christian school that includes all grades from kindergarden up to high school. Then we made our way to Costco to stock up on some supplies and have lunch. The kids really like the pizza that they have, and it is pretty good from mexican pizza. It is really hard to find good pizza down here, especially when we get spoiled on Chicago-style deep dish!
Fede, Jaqui, Uriel and Michelle eating lunch.

After lunch we went to a children's museum that was in the middle of a huge park. They also have a water park, paintball, and rides, but much of it was shut down for the winter.

They kids enjoyed messing around with the different exhibits. The rule of the museum was that you cannot NOT touch. Above Fede, Todd, Michelle and Lili are learning about bridges.

Lupita, Ben, Uriel, Lili, Karla and Fransisco relax in the park while waiting to get into the museum. Joan worked her magic and She got us in 2 for 1.

Still Friends?!?

Gloria and Kaleigh normally play really well together.
They are good at making messes...
But Kaleigh has this obsession with riding things... plastic horses, our dog, whatever she desires...

Gloria didn't really like the idea of being ridden. Hope they will still be friends!

More Christmas!!!

This is Benny... He's been here about a month now. When he came, he was VERY tiny and not very well fed. He's grown a ton, and is getting cuter by the day! He made a great little baby Jesus in the Nativity...
Jaqui and Fede made a great Mary and Joseph too.

The girls loved all their gifts...

Thanks for your continued prayers... Please keep praying that each of the girls will accept the greatest gift of all- Jesus- as their PERSONAL Savior.
