1 June 2014 Update!

Greetings from Oxford, Mississippi.

I (Jeff) am here in Oxford for the weekend to officiate the wedding of Bradley and Abby Evans.  It is always such a blessing to be a part of these great times in the lives of our friends.  Bradley and Abby's wedding day was a beautiful day and I (Jeff) am so honored to have been invited to be a part of it all.

Thank you to all of you who pray for our family and the work that is going on in southern Mexico.  It is so good to know that you all are 'holding the rope' for us as we seek to serve the Father.  Your prayers are the most important part of the work!  Please don't ever underestimate your key part in what God is doing.

Some highlights of the past few weeks:

Jackson reached the 15 year mark!  He was able to celebrate in several ways.  The photo to the right is with Heather, Holly, and JD who spent the day with Jackson at a local water park.

Heather, Holly, and JD served with us as a part of the Hands On semester missions program.  They have now returned to the USA but we sure enjoyed having them in Oaxaca for the past four months.

Katherine and Sara will be joining us in August 2014 and will serve during the Fall 2014 semester.


Many of our summer workers have arrived.  Here are Bailey, Jeff, Sylvia, Rosa, Bryce, and Davinity in one local village.  Our summer workers will be spending time sharing the Gospel and encouraging believers in local villages, teaching English, and some other special projects.

Pray for our summer student team:  Natasha, Jennifer, Bailey, Davinity, Bryce, Lauren, Michelle, Drew, Rachel, and William.


Katie returned to Oaxaca for a fast two
week visit.  We were blessed to serve with Katie
during the summer of 2013 and we were so thrilled
that she came back to Oaxaca for another visit.
Katie has such a big heart and has made a huge
impact on many lives here.  We can't wait
until she comes back to visit.

Haylee is now a SENIOR IN HIGH SCHOOL!

Here is a photo of Haylee and a Captain America Minion celebrating the arrival of 12th grade.  Thanks to Heather and Holly for the best gift ever!

Please pray for Haylee as she makes a decision regarding college.  She graduates from High School in May 2015.
