We were robbed today!!

At 7:30 this morning we had someone break into our rear gate and start loading things from our storage room in the back. Only because we had a worker doing some maintenance did we know they were there, as soon as they were discovered they scurried away like the rats they are. I have spent all day dealing with the Misiterio Publico ( the local DA) who were all incredibly professional .
We lost about $750 in computers we were saving for the boys home and tools that we were using to do work here on the property. The most important thing to Lupita and me is the loss of security for the girls. We have worked hard to make this a safe place to forget their old life and this is working to bring it back. We just had the police come to the house to let us know they are implementing a system of patrol with a signed log to let us know that they are going to be here. This will also help the patrol problem here in the Ejido as well. Praise God!
Pray for us. The attack today only enforces to us that we are doing the right thing and it only makes us more determined.

We’re almost full!!

We are now at 7 permanent girls and a brother and sister temporarily. This house rocks when everyone is excited and the 4 yr old boy is a true boy. He plays hard and does what seems right without some guidance. But they’re all good kids and are happy here.

We are going into the egg business, I hope by the end of this month. We have been working hard to get it done and without Richard’s help it would still be a skeleton. I asked the local vet, Dr. Solis, what else we needed and he had many things on his list that we needed so we’re searching for everything this week and we’ll be installing everything ASAP.  If you need a vet down here he is the only one we ever go to.
We will be raising our own eggs to eat and expect to be able to sell 30 – 40 dozen a month for now. It doesn’t sound like much but it pays for itself and we produce free range organic eggs which are nothing like the local eggs. We have stores and bakeries wanting the eggs but I think it would be better to sell to our Casa de Fe family here in town first. I’ll let you know when they are ready.
