Back to School!

Every summer children with “normal” families take this time for special activities. It kind of marks our own childhood- memories of beach days, climbing expeditions, week-long camping trips …  We at the children’s home try each summer, with the help of many teams, to create such treasured memories for our kids. This summer we excelled!!! A day of water slides, 4 days of camping in cabins with pools and awesome times; 4 days of camping for the older kids, ruffing it in the ...

Love from Ruby

Many of you probably know Ruby. She and her sister have lived with us for many years. They came out of a family situation with many problems, so not surprisingly, Ruby is a challenge!  She can be a cheerful, loving, happy girl! But her behavior can also turn quickly into tantrums and other misbehaviors. She struggles with learning in school and getting along with others. She was having so many problems at Rosarito that a few months ago, she was ...

"The most impactful missions trip I have ever been on"

KaiLi and Hannah are two college sophomores who chose to spend their spring break with us at TCM this year, loving on our kids and helping out with homework and tortillas!  They found out that when it rains here, school gets cancelled… that sometimes there is hot water, sometimes there is cold water, and sometimes there is no water because the water truck can’t drive over the rainy, muddy roads!  They had a great time. Here is what Hannah said ...

Getting ready for the new laws

In our state, the government is in the process of passing news laws governing orphanages. ALL orphanages in this state (we have heard that there are at least 100 in Baja California!) will be affected by these new regulations, and all will have to make updates and changes to comply with these laws.   The regulations cover everything from staff training requirements, fire safety, restrictions on visitors, changes in how kids are accepted, and more. At TCM,  Seth Gomez, has been ...

Thank you for fruit!

The Super Pandas (the 5th and 6th grade girls at Rosarito) are continuing their small group study of a famous missionary, Amy Carmichael. Last week, they read about how she preferred to pray to God when she needed something, without asking people directly, and God always provided.  So we learned the verse Luke 18:27- “What is impossible with man is possible with God.”

I then asked the girls if there was anything they wanted to pray for that was needed at ...

Polished Girlz Tijuana!

Polished Girlz    is an international organization of girls serving others.  We have started the first Polished Girlz chapter in Mexico with the girls who live at our Soler site. Yesterday was our first event. We went to another orphanage which is for younger children with HIV/AIDS. Our girls painted nails, played with the little ones, and gave lots of hugs.

Mail Call!

The kids love to receive mail and packages from their sponsors!  Last week, we had a big day, where 15 of our kids all had a card or letter!  It was exciting to give them their letters (translated) and help them to write back. It is one more tangible expression of God’s love to the kids! You can send mail to your sponsored child at the PO Box address listed on our site.  It does take a few weeks for ...
