Two years ago Nayeli and Miguel came to know Proyecto MEFI and the team. They met about 6 years ago in a restaurant where they went to eat with friends. They got together and went to live with Miguel’s family on their farm-land. Miguel’s father had died when he was a teenager (from alcohol...

Hope you all had a great Christmas. Whilst we missed family, friends and the traditions of home, we had a wonderful day and we celebrated it with a Mexican family and a Northern Irish friend over a ‘traditional English’ Christmas dinner. We weren’t able to get all the trimmings but we didn’t...

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...

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...
