It's that time of year when family gathers at the table, home or a special place and gives thanks for the many blessings had and to come. Then again gather to open gifts beside the Christmas tree. I would like to invite you to remember our boys here at Mexico Christian Children's Home. Some will never be able to have this special time with family. Some have never experienced a Christmas, but yet all of them express daily in their prayers a "thank you Lord for the people who help me". All of us at MCCH want to thank you for helping us be a part in these boys lives. Without your prayers and financial help things would be very difficult but not impossible because the Lord always provides. Please remember us this Thanksgiving and Christmas, may the Lord bless you always for all you have done and will continue doing for MCCH.

We are very happy and excited to share with you that Gerardo (20 year old) will be getting his surgery on upper lip done for free. After several tries petitioning with local government he was finally approved and is now in process of all paper work, blood tests and many other requirements. Thank you Lord for letting MCCH be a part in Gerardo's life and thank you for prayers and financial help.

Please continue prayers for water at MCCH to include rain water.
We have set up a whole rain water collection process: the black water tank (when full of rain water) provides a hole week of washing dirty laundry for all the boys and the white barrel is used for mopping floors. This represents a 40% savings in water.
Well pump has not yet been repaired so please continue in prayer about pump repair or replacement.
Thank you Lord for the rain you send us.

Some very important updated information about MCCH changes.
We (Douglas and Monica) have always tried to dedicate our lives to serving the Lord (just like Bob and Bev Wright showed us) in all possible ways and try to get others involved in serving also. Over the past 2 years we have had a total of 3 families take the responsibility of house parents here at the boys home, thinking we could do more things away from actual boys home. It has not been easy and we finally have understood from God that He wants us with MCCH (close to boys), So with this said we have decided to move back into the children's home but this has created a problem with the house parents (Nicolas and Geneva Gurrusquieta in picture below) living in apartment adjoining home. We had given them a 3 month trial period before making them official house parents and as of the 3rd of September 2016 they are no longer involved with MCCH. They have moved out of property and all we ask is that the Lord bless them wherever they will be working, these past months have been very tough in many ways but our concern always has a focus on the boys well-being and care. We are very happy to move back with them especially when they all have responded so well to us. They are an important part of our lives. Yes this means more work but it's serving our Lord and that's the main goal.

The boys headed back to school on 8/22/16!
New school and much to learn.
We are asking for your prayers and for you to consider sponsoring the boy's monthly school fund. The cost to send them all to school at this time is $800.00 per month (American). We are in immediate need of $1200.00 by 9/1/16 to cover tuition.
If you would like to help us meet this monthly need, please contact our Ambassadors, Mike and Joan Shingleton at
THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT!
MCCH is a very busy place! Despite all of the challenges we are facing, God remains faithful in His provision and in His love. We give Him all the praise!
Below is a picture of Bev "tutoring" the boys on how to process a chicken. On this day several of the boys had the pleasure of learning how to butcher and process chickens. Thank you Lord for providing and teaching us at MCCH that you must work to enjoy the fruits. Thank you Lord for all those involved in the farm project at MCCH.

Other things happening at MCCH:
After having the meter box and wire stolen at the well, we are building a "vault" around the control box in order to protect it from any returning thief. This project has been funded by several donations. For more information about how you can help with the well fund, please visit: https://www.gofundme.com/2dy5he4
Thank you Lord for our wonderful supporters in the U.S. and here in Mexico.
