Update video

We were recently asked by a supporting church to send them a video update on what’s happening here, so, naturally, we obliged. This is what came of it, a 4-minute video about us, the work here, a neat story, the new church plant and the property. We filmed it on the property to give people […]

Misc. Happenings

In the interest of actually writing here, I thought I’d do a quick general bullet-pointed post. A lot has happened this week, with little time to write. So we’ll go with a list, just to give an idea of a not-atypical busy week! Tim, Drew and Gavin went camping this last weekend in Tlatlauquitepec, a […]

Learning process from second graders

Today while teaching second graders their way around a keyboard, I was thinking about how God sees things.  You start teaching second graders to type by showing them where to put their fingers on the keyboard: asdf &;lj.  At least I think you do; I’m not a real typing teacher.  You tell them, “those are […]

Helping flooding victims

These are a few weeks old now, but here are some photos from our project to help the flooding victims here in our neighborhood:

Don’t drop the chalupas!

After our good meeting with the health clinic last Friday, all the attendees decided that the gringos needed an introduction to Mexican food (actually, I let it out that Eddie needed an introduction). So they decided that they would make chalupas for us. Mmmmm…chalupas…. For those who have been corrupted by Taco Bell or just […]

In Pueblo Nuevo at least our losing streaks are only about 3…

Yes, we’ve been playing soccer up at the fields for a couple weeks now, Tuesdays and Thursdays, 10 am-12 pm. There’s a group of guys that get together to play and we’ve kind of insinuated ourselves into the mix. So we’re having fun, getting better at soccer (not saying much), and getting to know a […]


Well, we finally broke down and got on Twitter…in the last few weeks I noticed that several of our activities would be perfect to mention in 140 characters or less and decided that I should sign up…actually, I thought that it would be nice to mention what we were doing (with Caleb and Ethan, or […]


This week (after saying goodbye to Mom & Dad) we were supposed to do an English camp for the teachers at the elementary school where Tim does computer classes. However, coming into this week, we were picking up pretty clear signs that it wasn’t going to work out. First, the Education Department extended the year […]

A day to remember?

Why is it that on the days that are worth blogging about you’re too tired to write anything. Today was really ome of the most insane days I’ve had. Ever. Period. It started out with just the regular busyness of getting ready for the clinic: picking up furniture, supplies, equipment. Then Ethan and I got […]

In praise of college guys

As mentioned last week, we have two college students with us for two weeks, Caleb and Ethan. Thet have been just great. Their first days they went to a late night Bible study, a three hour football camp under the blazing sun, new food, a strange roommate (Eddie:) and aced everything. They helped Eddie get […]
