We have amazing news! For the last two years, nine months of which was in Mexico, we have been volunteering with The Vineyard Church to help them establish and share their Child Sponsorship Program. After a lot of coutless hours of prayer and consideration we have decided to pursue this in a more full time capacity. Part of this decision is finding an agency that can help us continue our work in upcoming 2017 year. While we wait for our application to be processed, we are currently working on … [Read more...] about We’ve Found An Agency!
As Darryl and I and our two children prepare for our next trip to Mexico in January of 2017 to continue our work with the Vineyard Child Sponsorship program, we are continually asked why we do what we do? (actually to be totally clear, due to the marvel of technology this is a year round effort on our part, with only a portion of the year being on site in Mexico) Why would we make the decision to work only 50% of the time here in Canada to be able to volunteer with the Vineyard Church … [Read more...] about Why?

Thanks for your overwhelming response of love, advice, and prayers as we journey along in these next few weeks. We feel very encouraged by your wisdom, and look forward to connecting with you more as we hear from God. One of the things I in particular have been feeling is that even while we feel paralyzed when it comes to the "How things will happen" we need to keep trucking.

The summer has swiftly moved along far more we would all like, but we would like to take this time to share some of the things God has been stirring in our hearts, and the direction we feel he's asking us to go. Darryl and I have been on a journey of refining our businesses the last few years. In particular, Darryl and I have quite honestly been really hard and impatient with ourselves. It's taken us years to figure out that we while we are passionate about helping people through the creative … [Read more...] about If Only We Could Slow Down Time.
If you are planning on Vacationing next year and if you are looking to explore volunteering with your family we would like to invite you to come spend some time in Mazatlan with us this coming winter. The theme of this particular week is directed towards "Vacation With Purpose" providing individuals and families a soft landing towards showing their children another part of the world where kindness is needed. Years ago both Darryl and I had a lot of fears taking our children to another country … [Read more...] about An Opportunity To Vacation With Purpose.
Its been almost 3 months since we've been home since working along side The Vineyard Church of Mazatlan. We had an amazing, busy, and full-filling time. With all honestly this post should have been written well over two months ago so I apologize. Wanna know my reason? L.I.F.E. Life is busy, work is going well, and the kids are in their last days before school is out. Our minds lean to Mazatlan every day. Not a day goes by that we do not think about this amazing city that we call our … [Read more...] about Will We Trade Our Dreams For His, Or Are We Caught In the Middle?
