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.
