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.

Reunited with family

Thank you all so much for your prayers and support over the past couple of weeks. We managed to get the bags packed, house cleaned, take the long flight over the Atlantic, get through immigration with Anya’s Mexican passport, meet Steve’s parents, get back to Devon, see most of the family and do...

Our stress levels reached their peak this week and we had to keep reminding each other to keep things in perspective. We went to Fidel’s son’s wedding last week-end in a town a couple of hours away, and we spent a really lovely time with Fidel, Juana and their family. However, Nisha spiked a...

From the smaller members of the family

As Anya hasn’t had a turn to contribute on the blog(go to Cossletts own blog on yet we thought it would be good for her to give you an update this week. If you click on the play button above you can hear her side of the story, don’t believe everything you hear...

It is hard to believe, but these pictures are of the same girl (whom we’ll continue to call Julia in order to protect her identity). Andrew and Carol Agnew (who were working with the ministry up until just over a year ago) took the first picture of her in April 2007 and wrote in their blog ‘this...

New Opportunities

We have had some real encouragements over the last few weeks in terms of God’s provision for Proyecto MEFI. Firstly, we discovered a couple from our church work for a foundation which collects left-over bread and tortillas from a couple of the big supermarkets here. They are allowed to...

Torquay Team

We haven’t managed to give an update over the past couple of weeks as we’ve been very busy working with a team from our home church, Upton Vale, in Torquay. This morning I (Steve) took them to the airport and we were very sad to see them go.  The two weeks they’ve been here have been fun, hard...

Last week was a slightly slower week as all the pastors, evangelists and missionaries went on retreat together. Half the time was spent listening to testimonies, talks, and worshiping together, the other half was spent playing, relaxing and being together. These retreats are so vital, especially...

Easter Day

A really Happy Easter to you all! Here in Mexico our main role is to help lead and support Proyecto MEFI which seeks to help street kids encounter Christ and as a result break addiction cycles and leave the streets. MEFI is a para church organisation and relies on our relationships with churches...

The Three Amigas

Hola amigos! It’s my turn to write the blog this week as Mummy and Daddy always get to to write it. These are two of my friends from school – Sofia (middle) and Ximena (right). I went to Ximena’s birthday party last week-end and it was a Minnie Mouse themed party (all the parties seem...

Comings and goings

Last week our 7 wonderful weeks with family came to an end, Helen’s Mum, Liz spent four weeks with us and was a tremendous help, especially with Nisha when Anya arrived, and my parents, Larry and Chris, were also a great help – it’s a shock to the system being back at the sink every...
