The Hayes Zoo

Our Purpose

- to know God and use our entire lives in service to Him.

- to stand in the gap through prayer, giving and service to viable ministries in Latin America.

- to be transparent helpers of fellow brothers and sisters in Christ, using our resources and skills that through the Holy Spirit, we might encourage and equip those who have less.

- to share a living perspective from Latin America to our churches, friends and family in the states and beyond.

We are a plannin'.

Planning to return to Mexico to get our things that is. Yes, we still have our household down there. Now, when I say household it's basically a truck (full size) load + a small utility trailer (tools ya know...), but still.

Alan will be leaving here (WA) next Tuesday to make the journey 3500 miles, one way, to finish our duties there. I am so thankful that he's willing/able/going to do that himself and let the kids and I stay here and not make that trip. We are beyond grateful that a friend has volunteered to drive from the border down to Mitla and back with Alan.

We would appreciate a huge covering of prayer for that whole process if you wouldn't mind.

One downside? We'll be separated for 3 weeks. I'm finding this a huge drawback. With all the turmoil and chaos that has been our lives for the past 3 months - this is stressin' me out. The trip, the driving, the separation, the funds, the finishing there, the starting over here...ack.

Then - I don't know what to do with this place. It will no longer be international ministry. It will no longer be international. It will no longer be interesting....Just keepin' it real.

Thanks for hanging in there with us as we find the new ground God wants us to bloom in.


PS: We have new, permanent phone numbers for Alan and I listed in our 'Contact Us' page, if you'd like to contact us. :)

Ack is what I would be saying too.

Well... sure wish we could go with Alan and stay a bit. Sigh.

BTW, I like hearing about you, your family, and your life no matter where you live or what you are doing.
