Thank you so much for your support! The response to jump on board for $10+ a month is helping to make a difference here in Morelia! We had a few more people join our team this last month, and we are so grateful!
Thank you for your continued love and support! We pray that in 2023, God will provide for our long-term budget needs. Currently, we are at 61 % of our long-term budget needs pledged monthly.
Would you prayerfully consider partnering with us on this journey with a monthly donation? Consistent monthly contributions allow us to plan our budget and ministry giving. Please know that no amount is too small!
Here’s a sample of how your monthly partnership can be used, accumulated over the period of a year:
$3 – one week of food expense for two children while at school
$6 – vehicle fuel for approximately 2 weeks
$11 – one month for one elementary child’s education expenses/or one month of our family health insurance
$17 – one month of our utilities
$30 – one month of our medical expenses, including dentistry
$60 – one month of our ministry expenses that go directly toward our ministry service
$100 – one month of food for the family
$125 – ONE YEAR of clothing needs, including uniforms and shoes
$150 – ONE YEAR of ministry office expense
$180 – 3 months of our ministry expenses that go directly toward our ministry service
$300 – 3 months of food for the family
As we enter year two on the field, we are so grateful for all the ways God has provided for our family. We were able to obtain and maintain 100% of our minimum budget throughout this year, which allowed us to move and begin ministry in Morelia with Centro NOE.
But there is more to be done! We are at 59% of our long-term monthly budget that will allow us to be fully functional long-term as a family of six, save for visits to the State to visit family, friends, churches, and donors during the summer of 2023, save for emergencies, and give to students and families in need.
We thank all of those who have already committed to being a part of our team! We are seeking monthly donors that will support our ministry with Centro NOE in Morelia, Michoacán, Mexico.
$10, $20, $30, $40, $50, $75, $100+ per month can help us continue our ministries long-term. NO AMOUNT IS TOO SMALL, and we would love for all of you to be a part of what God is doing here! We’re here; you’re with us!
Each Spring, we take the opportunity to encourage our friends, donors, and new ministry partners to give to our ministry with NOE in Morelia, Mexico. As missionaries, we rely on the generosity of others so we can dedicate100% of our time to helping others who live on very humble means.
CURRENTLY: Long-term budget = 62% funded monthly If you are not currently giving, please know that no amount is too small. If each friend or family were to give $10+ per month, we would be fully funded and have more to give to those struggling to make ends meet.
Will you please commit to give today? We are overwhelmingly grateful!
Thank you for your generosity! Note: non-monthly donations have been and are being used for initial transition costs, immigration, and unforeseen expenses.

God continues to provide for our needs! Thank you for your continued financial support! Missionary budgets are received through: one-time support, one-time annual support, and monthly support. In 2021, we received 100% of our proposed long-term budget for year 2021.
During 2022, we would love to partner with those who believe in us so that 100% of our long-term budget is received via monthly support.
Currently, we are at approximately 60% of that goal. We also have a “minimal budget” which is our budget based on the minimum for what it takes for us to live and eat monthly. 100% of this budget has been reached for 2022.
1) Receive new additional monthly commitments equaling $2,000 per month
2) Transition all one-time annual gifts into monthly contribution commitments. If you are giving annually, would you consider transitioning to monthly? We can assist you with this process!
3) Creation “Ministry Budget” where any support over our long-term budget is placed to be used to assist locals and ministry partner needs, support of children needing scholarships within the NOE programs.
IMMIGRATION UPDATE: Welcome to the Club! In December, after Christmas, Reggie and I took off to San Antonio, Texas with our two vehicles and trailer we used to bring our possessions and selves to Morelia. We spent 2.5 days posting our vehicles, meeting with buyers, and organizing transactions. Although busy, we successfully sold each for reasonable prices, allowing us to replace them with vehicles from Mexico, avoiding importation fees. Yay!
God was so faithful throughout this process. While our kids stayed with some friends, back in Morelia, we arrived safely into Mexico City via plane. A long, not-very-fun story summarized, permission to stay in Mexico was only given to Reggie and me for a very short amount of time.
“Welcome to the club!” was lovingly the first thing we heard when we explained our situation to some missionary friends. “You’re like real missionaries now!” Missionary jokes! Although this may not seem funny to you (or us just yet), it is encouraging to know that there are other people who have experienced similar situations and have made it to the other side through faith and can help us find joy through it. We are attempting to work out temporary residency, but the process has been delayed. Please pray with us and for us for patience and wisdom as we gather information and decide which action to take by the end of January. We hope to give a positive update next month!
