Dear MCCH friends and family we are so excited to share with you some pictures of the progress for the goat project.  It's all in the Lords hands as to exactly when we will have at least 100 milking goats with the help of Mr Barry Midtling (a Good Samaritan) sent by the Lord to MCCH for this goat project.  Construction of milking house started this week. Please continue to pray for this project.

Thank you Lord for this special gift to the boys at MCCH and our family and thank you for those who made it possible.
We all had a great time off from school, house chores, farm chores and regular routines, enjoying beautiful scenes, swimming, hiking and great food. Here are some pictures of our trip to the famous Pachuca mining town, the first place soccer was played in Mexico.

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.

Joyful service on 9/18/16 at Tlacote Church of Christ as Omar (age 15) and Efrain (age 14) together with church member Fernando (who brings water to MCCH while without well).  All accepted Christ and where baptized today.  
Thank you Lord for allowing us to celebrate this event.

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.
