The Hayes Zoo
- 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.

Many, many thanks to those of you who are continuing to love and support us through your ministry of prayer during this time of transition. Our prayer is that we are able to finish strong in our time of international service and to be ready for the next steps...whatever those may be. For the next couple of weeks...it is to clear out our Mexico house and finish all those loose ends.
In case you hadn't heard Alan is making that trip without the kids and I...BLESS his heart.
Alan has made it to San Antonio. The truck is working okay and the travel time is considerably less without the monkeys (our children) in the back seat.
The cross over to Mexico is tomorrow morning (Friday the 27th). There are three full days of driving along with the border crossing, checkpoints, and other adventures that are part of the 'package deal' of driving internationally with our life packed into the back of the vehicle. Our prayer is that the traveling will be uneventful and safe with a timely arrival into Mitla to pack up our house. Praise God a friend is with him and offering his time and service in order for Alan to have an extra hand.
Prayers for energy, alertness, wisdom, health and a good sense of humor are necessary. Another element is the emotional...we're done there. In the big picture we are fine with God's allowances here...on another level, it's still shocking that our time there is over. Prayers for him as he finishes would be appreciated.
I won't hear from him as regularly once he is south of the border but I will be updating you as I can.
Faith for the Hayes zoo...
