We have greatly enjoyed the gift of three children with one more due any day now. Hannah has had a rough time this past week and is quite ready to see the new one face to face. We have been in Mexico for about four years now and this will be our fourth child. We trust there will not always be a correlation between the number of years in the country and the number of children in our care.

It is a great responsibility to raise these children in a country where an armed conflict has been in progress since 2007 between militarized drug cartels, the federal government and even citizen militias in the nearby state of Michoacan. Over 100,000 people have been killed in this 'drug war' in the last eight years (twice the death toll for Americans in the Vietnam War), however, by the grace of God, not one missionary we fellowship with has been harmed. This can only be attributed to the care and protection of our Father.

The urban area where we labour has seen its share of violence, but this has not affected the work in any way. We enjoy great liberty to preach the gospel in Guadalajara, whether on street corners, in pubic halls, private homes, or otherwise.

The work began a little over 2 and a half years ago in the home of Ricardo & Martha Solis. They kindly offered the use of their home for gospel meetings and shortly afterwards a bi-weekly gospel meeting commenced. We had good attendance in their home and saw the need to rent a room where we could have the meetings in a more public context. The work has progressed to the point where we gather with a handful of children from the neighbourhood for a Sunday School, a weekly gospel meeting (Lord's day), Bible reading (Wednesday), and a prayer / ministry meeting (Friday). Around fifteen of us gather for these meetings on a regular basis. In light of this on the 29th of November 2015 it is our desire to celebrate the Lord's supper for the first time and to continue until He comes.

We would ask that you pray for our preservation while seeking to live for Him in this 'present evil age' (Galatians 1.4).
