Mexico – The Cosslett Family

Steve and Helen are with the OMS team in Mexico City, after a year of language training in Costa Rica. God started preparing them for this move to Mexico back in 1998 when Helen first became involved in a project with street children there.

Helen, a nurse with a Dip HE in Applied Theology met OMS at Bible school. Steve has a degree in Applied Theology and has led teams to Mexico. The Cossletts will be working with the street children's project and planting churches amongst the street people and the poorer communities.

Feliz Año Nuevo!

It was a very humbling Christmas as we were reminded just how blessed we are and how much we are able to bless others because of what God has given us. We saw this at the Christmas party we had at the drop-in centre for the street kids – for whom Christmas is often just another day of...

We’ve just come back from a 4 day retreat on the pacific coast of Mexico in a place called ‘Puerta Vallarta’. This is where our field director and his wife are living at the moment because of the director’s altitude sickness. It was a much needed break for all of us. We...

New Arrival! (no, not another baby)!

One of the joys of being part of a large international organisation is that we get to welcome people from all over the world to come and work with us for varying amounts of time. For example, we have two families in language school in Costa Rica right now, one from the UK and the other the USA,...

Some sad goodbyes!

We are missing the team that came from S. Wales already. Andrew, Helen, Miriam and Sam were an encouragement, blessing, support, help, and became great friends to our family (Nisha and Anya especially loved having them around!), as well as to many other Mexicans here. They were here for two...
