Wedding Plans & Happy Thanksgiving

We had our Thanksgiving today with Lorna and Byron since we have a normal schedule on Thursdays. It was nice explaining the reason behind the holiday; it’s not just a day to eat until you burst.

We are planning our wedding to be here at Casa de Fe on Dec. 15th  around 2pm. We are going to have music at the reception as well as chicken with mole and all the fixings. We are trying to get a head count so we can have enough for everyone so if you could reply back and let us know how many we can make arrangements. It’s going to be a simple service and a family style gathering afterwards so it will be great to have our friends here to help us celebrate. Everyone is welcome!!
Please check out our needs list, it's been updated.

Casa de Fe Wedding Announcement!!!!

We are planning to have our wedding on Saturday Dec. 15th here at Casa de Fe and naturally will have the reception here as well. We are letting everyone know so you can let us know how many of you and your friends would like to attend. We are simple people and are planning a simple service and reception, but we’re ready for a good Mexican party to celebrate. Everyone is invited so please let us know. Please no gifts, donations to Casa de Fe would be great.

We started the San Felipe Egg Company today!!!!!!!!!!!
Thanks to the help of Richard Paiva, the group from Oregon, the guys from Chiliwack and several people here in San Felipe we have a deluxe chicken coop and today we received 27 chicks. We spent a lot of time trying to find grown hens to no avail. Now that the weather has cooled we decided to start from scratch and get chicks, 25 female and 2 males. They are getting adjusted today and the kids are naturally excited to have them here. This spring we are looking to have our own eggs and maybe have some for sale.
Remember, we are baking custom breads and cakes. We are offering them for sale at the swap meet but we are also open to have people come to Casa de Fe if they would like to buy one during the week. We also are taking orders for baked goods and are happy to bake on request. Call us at our new number,
686-688-0355, and let us know what you would like.

Happy Anniversary Baby

Not many people will remember this but on Nov. 2, 2010 we received our first 3 children from DIF, Alejandra, Perla and Rosita. Several days later we were given Amanda who had just turned 2 yrs old. It was an eventful learning experience getting comfortable with the girls and establishing a family environment for them to grow in. We have had many things happen along the way, especially this year, but God has had His hand on us and we are doing what we do one day at a time. We couldn’t do this without your help and support so this really is a celebration for you and what you have accomplished with us. We will be taking the girls to the Shrimp Festival here in town to celebrate the anniversary and birthday amongst ourselves if nothing else.

With the holidays coming up I have been asked to broach a subject I haven’t really talked about before. We are always happy when groups or individuals come and share clothes and toys with the girls. They are always very happy to see you all and to receive your gifts, especially the food. Consequently we have a LOT of clothes and toys but we are in need of other things like gasoline, propane, electricity, medicine; things that take cash. We have never asked for money outright or given you amounts for donations for things, but we have received enough things for the girls for Christmas already that they will not need anything else and will still have much more than many kids here in town. If for this Christmas you could take the amount you were going to use for the girls and make it a donation to Casa de Fe we can use it for other things that they need. You can either mail it to us or to 99+1 Ministries if you need a tax receipt (just put Casa de Fe in the memo space). Thanks for understanding.
Wedding plans are being finalized; we will let you know where. The date will be Dec. 15th here in San Felipe.
