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...

New Faces and New Roles
This is a photo of the team who will be arriving tomorrow (Monday) to work with us over the next two weeks. They are Helen, Andrew, Sam and Miriam (from left to right) and are coming from South Wales.

Holiday Bible Club
The last 5 days have been energetic, fun, fast-paced, exhausting and exciting all at the same time! We had between 25 and 30 kids coming to the Holiday Bible Club each day and we are certain God was speaking to the kids and parents during that time. The kids were both those of street mums that we...

Week One: Find a house….check!
This time last week, Nisha was starting back at her old nursery whilst we went house hunting. Nisha really enjoyed seeing her Mexican friends and teachers again, but found it quite hard not being able to talk to them like she can talk to her friends in the UK. On Tuesday she was quite emotional...

Restoring their childhood
This is a picture of Sofia’s children – Sara and Andres – taken last year when they were still on the streets (names have been changed for their protection). These children lived on the streets with their mum and we knew Sofia before the kids were even born on our visits over...

A country of contrast
Having been back in Mexico for over a month now we are falling in love with the place all over again, but also remembering some of those things that make us wish we were back in the UK.
Mexico truly is an amazing place, some of the beaches and mountains are unbeatable for their natural beauty....
