The first batch of piglets have arrived!  Eve gave birth to 12 piglets today!  10 of the 12 are doing well.  Eve did well with the delivery. The boys got to be there and did a great job pitching in to help clean up the piglets and get them settled.

Greetings to you all from MCCH Ambassadors, Mike and Joan Shingleton.  

We are sure most of you are aware of the many issues involving the well at MCCH over the years.  In response to the current issue of the well starting to dry up we have opened a Go Fund Me account to raise the money needed to dig a new well.  Here is the link to the Go Fund Me account.

We ask that you would visit the site and share it with your friends and family to spread the word and help us reach our goal of $23,000 (American) that is needed to complete this project.

We thank you and praise God for your continued,faithful support of MCCH through your prayers and financial giving.

Today we have received an unusual word of encouragement for all of us here at MCCH, Our local government along with child protection services has recognized Mexico Christian Children's Home as one of the most enduring, well managed children's home of the state of Queretaro, they have also placed MCCH on a pedestal of the "roll model" home.

When asked how we have been able to survive for all these years (being that we survive solely on donations) we responded "It's all in Gods hands".

I only wish Dad could have been around to see local government say "thank you for all you have done and are doing for the orphans of Queretaro."

I (Douglas) want to personally thank each one who has prayed or supported MCCH and I know the Lord will bless you in full for your help because it's with your constant help we are able to continue.

MCCH was host to 68 visitors this past Saturday as both FEDEX and UPS workers with families held a soccer tournament on our turf.  Then MCCH boys (in orange) played finals against challengers (UPS) and beat them.  After the game we all fellowship with a delicious meal.

A little late, but here are the May birthdays!

Max's 14 birthday:  A full house at his party with Bev Wright, Ann Creekmore, new house parents Nina and Nicolas, 3 visitors and of course all 13 boys along with Douglas,Monica and their two children, thank you Nina for the delicious cake upon these tough financial times here at MCCH, the Lord has allowed us to share pure love with Max on this special day. 

Daniel who is new to MCCH had his 18th birthday on May 18th!  Welcome to MCCH Daniel!
His face reflects joy because this was the first time anyone had celebrated his birthday.

Please continue in prayer for MCCH boys.

Water well justification usage to government is on its way with 80,000 of these tiny plants being planted.  The only problem is our well is not able to keep up with irrigation.  Please pray the Lord will bring MCCH the solution.  

 So far we have planted around 15,000 asparagus plants and it has been raining on them. Lord willing production should start around end off summer and government inspection will finally turn legal well papers over to the home.
There's a possibility of investing in a complete "drip irrigation system" but we have not been able to come up with funds.  We are still looking into the cost for this.  There have been just enough donations for basic necessities.  Please pray for financial income, there are many needs and still many expenses to cover here at MCCH.

Work was started a few weeks ago on remodeling last 40 year old bathroom here at MCCH, just like all the others we found giant tree roots growing inside old cement pipes, replacing with pvc, new copper valves at shower and of course new floor and all around tile, this last bath was tiled with a combination of left overs and is looking great, I (Douglas) have faith some extra money will come in and be able to get new toilet and sink.
