We apologize for our absence these past six weeks. A lot has been happening here in Mazatlan and a lot of our daily life has been the same each week. Wake up, go to the church. Go home. Sleep. Repeat. Highlights: The sponsorship program is at a point administratively to take on new donors. The volunteers have been working long hours in the office daily to make this happen. The Vineyard Church will soon be able to accept online donors. Yippee! 2. The Vineyard lobby is coming, and some … [Read more...] about Random Praises and Prayer Items With Two Weeks Left to go.
Hola from Mazatlan. As I write, I assure you I've tried many times to write an update. I realize a lot of you aren't on Facebook, so you will not be able to see our updates. It's been a hard few weeks, each day here passes by quicker each week. We both feel if we could just pause time, that would allow for more to get accomplished. Although, we know this is not realistic. Praise items! Darryl's back and arms are doing better. After four treatments at the massage clinic, and many prayers … [Read more...] about Gaining Strides.
It's very hard to believe that we've been here for nearly one month. A lot has been happening and the balance with life, ministry stuff, and rest has given us a good shake.

This means that we set an alarm, we exercise, we work, and we play a bit when there's time. We are at the the church nearly every day to … [Read more...] about One Month Update!
Hola from Mazatlan! We are currently three weeks into our time here in Mazatlan. Our family transitioned easier this time after spending six months in this city last winter. We really like the apartment we've rented and it has provided a convenient location with our involvement with the Vineyard Church. Some of the great things about our Location: Ten Minute from The Vineyard Church which makes walking there every day so much better. A Laundromat!!! Literally a two-minute walk from our … [Read more...] about Our Update After Three Weeks In Mazatlan.
I Can't believe it's December 11th! In less than four weeks we will be on a jet plane towards Mazatlan. I realized today that I'd only been doing a few updates on Facebook and other social media to keep in touch. I haven't posted in awhile to let you know how our our ministry is going, how the fundraising is going, and the thoughts rolling around in our old brains. House Update: Many of you have been asking... have we rented our house yet for the three full months? Short answer: No, But we … [Read more...] about Less Than Four Weeks To Go!
As I write this post the sun is shining brightly and the week leading into Canadian Thanksgiving. If I look back on this past year, I need to be ready to ask myself.... am I more grateful this year then this time last year? The answer is Yes! I am. What our family got to witness during our 6 months in Mexico is unbelievable! We flew back to Canada this past May, and the extreme support from our church family, family and friends blew our minds! If you missed my post on Facebook, this was a … [Read more...] about A Few Faith Steps Towards Next Year!
