Hello, I know I just posted, but I wanted to put a list of needs out there for all to see.....

Sponsorship for Amin..... this is the young man staying in our home. He does a wonderful job of helping in all aspects of upkeep, but really needs some sort of income, not only for him, but he would love to help his mom in the Dominican Republic. We are not looking for a large amount, but anything sent towards this would be a wonderful help.
Shelving (we are looking at the metal shelving at Sam's, Home Depot, or Target)
Plastic containers
inside lighting and ceiling fans for the house
door knobs
donations for laminate flooring for the upstairs
food (people never stop eating)
sponsorship for kids to go to school (I will post pics this week of kids needing sponsorship)
black school shoes
white tennis shoes
white button down shirts
diaper rash cream
If you have any questions about any of these items in particular, just ask us.....
Thanks for reading

Ok, I am going to try and get better at posting on our blog.
I actually can't remember the last post..... we have been very very busy this summer. We have built 5 new homes in Mexico (that includes the one in March), built one church and attended the dedication of that building, done LOTS of work on the house ("our house") there, purchased the property to the left of our house to build a kitchen and bathrooms, been involved in a wonderful wedding, 2 beautiful quincineras, the births of 2 beautiful baby girls, (one of whom is extremely special), attended Pastor Procoro's 82nd birthday party, etc... with more still to come!!!
Our personal adventures include a trip to Garner State Park, movies, Vacation Bible School, youth camp, All Star Baseball, and an upcoming trip to Mo Ranch with Christ Community Church!!!
We would still like to visit the beach at least one time before we head back to Alabama.

Ok, I would like to say a few words about Mayra and the baby..... Ladies, just let me tell you to be thankful for the hospitals that we have in the US...... Mauricio was not even able to be back there with her for the birth... alas.... God is good, and heard our prayers.... she did not have to have a c-section, and she has a healthy baby girl, whom is soooo precious, and loves her 'abuelita', or Tia Rebecca.....I will try and keep photos updated from now on.... I know I am terrible.... just pray that I get in a routine of blogging more!!!
