A bitter-sweet Christmas, just like the first.
Just as the most precious baby of all, God’s son, was born in to poverty, in a smelly, dirty stable, away from home, and with a death warrant over his life, so the joy that accompanies Christmas this year is mixed with the stark pain and fear that are so real in the lives of the young people...

Nisha’s acting première
We said goodbye to Nick last Wednesday as he headed back to England where he’ll continue his acting course. The time went too quickly, but we were able to share lots of special moments with him before he went home. On his last day he had the chance to watch the beginning of his niece’s...

Our very own “St Nicholas”!
It really felt like Santa Claus had arrived last Monday when we collected Nick, Steve’s brother, from the airport. He arrived heavily laden with Christmas presents – mainly for Nisha of course, in fact he hardly had any room to bring any clothes for himself! He is visiting for 9 days,...

Bouncing back to health (almost)
Although it seemed like we’d all got over our various ailments, Nisha had about a week free of her cough and was back to her normal bouncy self, and then caught another one! However, this time she hasn’t got a fever, and it sounds more wheezy – so we’re questioning whether it could be...

During our time being ill these last few weeks, one of the DVDs we watched together was Madagascar 2. I don’t know how many of you have seen it, but it’s a sequel to a story about some New York City zoo animals trying to get to the wild and they end up in Madagascar in Africa. When they...

Sorry we weren’t in touch last weekend. We headed down to Acapulco where apart from a chance to see the sea we visited the 3 churches OMS works with down there. Well, Steve did, Helen and Nisha went mainly for pleasure, not ‘business’. Over the last couple of weeks Helen has been unwell with...

Baby Cosslett is growing fast and becoming very active (especially at night – hope that changes!). As we mentioned in our newsletter, Nisha has nick-named him/her ‘Spotty’ and is really looking forward to having a baby in the house to look after (she’s an excellent...

We would like to introduce you to Jesús – one of the older street boys (early 20‘s) who attend the drop-in centre. He asked if you could pray for him.
He shared with me some of his story. He was abandoned at birth by his mother, who worked as a prostitute. He has since met his mother who...
