Everyone check out the weekend Missourian. They did a great article on our family and our journey to Mexico. It is the People feature section! They did a story on us a few years ago about our fostering and adopting so many children. It is a great article. You can also view it at www.emissourian.com. Thanks Karen for the great job!
UPDATE: We recently received news that Seth Thomas has accepted a ministry position in Colorado and will be resigning his position as the director of Niños de Mexico in June. A new director will be starting and the transition to the new leadership will begin and they will need some time to acclimate in to the position and everything going on. Given these changes, we have decided to postpone our target date for moving to Mexico. We will want time to coordinate our new ministry with the new director and get his input as to how that will develop, as well as letting him get a feel for the needs at Niños and the direction he feels we need to go. We originally hoped to be in Mexico for the kids to start school the second week in September, but it will more likely be some time after the first of next year, and will also depend on how soon we get enough ministry partners to join us in the ministry to support us financially, so that we have the support we will need to live in Mexico.
In the meantime we will continue to work on raising support and developing ideas for the ministry. It will all happen in God's time, which is always the right time! We will keep you posted.
Those of you who would like to partner with us and support the ministry through monthly support, you can go to, www.ninosdemexico.org and click on the Donate Now box. You can then choose a one time gift or a reoccurring gift. You would need to dedicate the gift to Living Link missionary support and in the comment box, note the Reisinger's ministry.
Thanks for your love and support and please continue to pray for our journey.
The Skaterz fundraiser is next Saturday April 21 from 4:30 - 6:30. We will be selling raffle tickets at the event to win some cool prizes. We are hoping to have a great turn out and hope you all can join us. Invite your friends and bring the kids for a great time!
The 5K is coming up in a couple of weeks and we are hoping to see a good turn out. If you plan to participate, please register soon so that we can have a good idea of how many to plan for. Remember the children's fun run and if you are not a runner, we will have a lot of walkers as well.
Well we are hard at work sending out letters for support and rounding up sponsors for the 5K. Boy it takes a lot of time, but it is exciting to see God work. We have a lot of work to do in a short time. We really want to be moved before school starts the second week in September. I (Bob) will be going to language school for two weeks in August, so I will need to be down there by then. We are also hoping to get some friends together to help us get the house in Mexico set up before we move everyone down. We need to build or buy bunk beds for the kids rooms, and buy the furniture and household goods to set up house keeping. Please continue to pray for us. I am confident that where God has given the vision, he will make the provision.
We are starting this family blog to keep family and friends updated on our process and journey to Mexico. We will keep the blog when in Mexico, so that you will know prayer needs and be able to keep up with our family. I (Pam) am new to the blogging world, so please be patient with me as we learn and grow. So in essence this is a test blog run to see who is out there and to allow people to join us on our journey!
