Our house is closed! Jose is sick!

God has been blessing in amazing ways and I just wanted to share one of them! 

Although our house is closed because Jose is very sick God has brought a way that we can still have kids here. I can say some days I am more thankful than others! Like the night I forgot to go and tell the kids it was 8PM they had to go home. By the time I got outside it was 9 and they were putting puzzles together in the dark!
We live in a very small and poor part of town where there is nothing to do if you are a kid. So our most amazing Conca Family gathered a park for us! Yes it actually is a park, minus the land! So our house is currently the park, playground, soccer field, volleyball field, little toddler house, tether ball, and just hanging out working with Paulino. Oh yes and culturally you can bring your dog anywhere so I would have to say it is the local dog park too! 
We have gone through tons of bottled water and toilet paper this month! We have also got to love on the kids and show them that we are just here to be the hands and feet of Jesus. At the end of this blog I put our verse as we call it! Psalm 113 it has come true so many ways. God has given us tons of kids and as we continue to build relationships with them we need your prayers! Some of their lives are really hard and some of them carry a huge burden and are just starting to open up to us after over a year of being here. Others have just started coming over to hang out even if they do not play on the toys they just like to be here and do nothing. 
Homework is over for now thank God! I should be getting my Mexican Residency soon and can enroll in independent studies where I will be able to study and invite the local moms to join me. Then next year when homework comes I will be better prepared. 
There have been so many people coming by and blessing us or just sending us cash so we can bless others I wish I could write them all but I have a baby who needs fed! 
PLEASE CONTINUE TO PRAY FOR ALL OF OUR KIDS! Especially Jose the kids here love him very much and are just now started to see that his sickness is a no win battle! Please pray for protection for our kids. Some of the moms want to leave their husbands and trust me they have good reasons! However we would rather the husbands leave! God is in the healing business and can heal marriages and families. It would be awesome if these families would come to Jesus. We have had some huge open doors to share with them. Their hearts seem so hard however nothing is impossible with GOD! 

Paulino and his helpers working on the last structures.

The ladder is too short so we are getting creative right now it is looking like tires! 
 Gianna and her friends! Yes there was even a playground brought for toddlers! 

Psalm 113 The Message (MSG)

113 1-3 Hallelujah!
You who serve God, praise God!
    Just to speak his name is praise!
Just to remember God is a blessing—
    now and tomorrow and always.
From east to west, from dawn to dusk,
    keep lifting all your praises to God!
4-9 God is higher than anything and anyone,
    outshining everything you can see in the skies.
Who can compare with God, our God,
    so majestically enthroned,
Surveying his magnificent
    heavens and earth?
He picks up the poor from out of the dirt,
    rescues the wretched who’ve been thrown out with the trash,
Seats them among the honored guests,
    a place of honor among the brightest and best.
He gives childless couples a family,
    gives them joy as the parents of children.
