Greetings from Bev, Monica and I (Douglas). I promised on last receipt letter that I would make this one in remembrance of Dad.  I asked the Lord to help me come up with a special way to do this then turned over to a file that contains all the news letters that date back to 1970 when Mom and Dad arrived in Mexico. I have decided to share with you some of Dads own words.

March 23, 1971 “ We now own 112 acres of Mexican land and can start putting up a fence around it to keep the people and cows off it”  remember that Mom and Dad where living in town at the time (paying rent on a house).
Middle of 1971 We are not taking in any more children until our support increases, and we are able to build a larger house in the country. We had to turn down several children this week. It just breaks our hearts to turn away a child knowing that the child will never know pure New Testament Christianity and possibly never know about Jesus Christ.
Time is so short and we must try to do all we can for these children. We have just started to plant the seed here. Bev and I may never live to see the harvest of some of these children but others in our place will be here to continue on with this work…..time is so short.”

Dad wrote this 41 years ago and his words are still valid today, his reasons to serve are still alive in all of us, his daily concern for all to know about Jesus Christ continues today. With your help in prayers and finances, the work here in Mexico will continue Lord willing.

Thank you so very much for your constant support. You are an important part of Mexico Christian Children’s Home. May the Lord always share his hand with many blessings for you.
