Quick Update

Posted by familyafair on July 13, 2008 at 9:24 PM

Hi everyone!

Hope you enjoyed the new videos on our site! Now that we have figured out how to get them on here, we will try to post more of them. We just said goodbye to our friends David and Roxy from Ohio. They and their two boys spent a week with us here, serving the base and ministering with Nathan in the prison and at Ministerios De Amor. The boys really enjoyed having other boys close to their age to play with and we had a great visit!

The base is alive with the sound of young people as the King's Kids youth program has begun this week. There are about 40 kids here between the ages of 8 and 18 going through a discipleship and missions training program. And even though we aren't directly involved with King's Kids, it has been nice watching them embrace our boys and include them in their fun!

Nathan is wrapping up his preparations for the Phase III SST program that will begin on our base on July 17th. Our staff from Tyler arrive on Tuesday and the teenagers will be arriving soon after to start the three week program. Phase III is a discipleship program focused on teaching young people the seven spheres of influence: media, education, business, family, arts & entertainment, government and church. The goal of  Phase III is to impart vision to these youth and inspire them to affect the Kingdom of God through these seven spheres through their God-given callings. Nathan will be chiming in on how the school is going and giving a more detailed account of the outreach the kids will be doing. Please pray for receptive hearts and that God will have His way in their lives during these three weeks. We could also use some prayers for our family. Directing such a program is a 24/7 commitment and balance is always a struggle.

We started first grade this past week and it went great! We homeschool year round as our travel schedule works better this way and we often take off time during the school year. The structure of a school day is also good for the boys and helps our days go more smoothly. This year we are a using a program called "Little Hearts For His Glory" which focuses on scripture memorization and teaches Bible history alongside American history. Averic has been joining in and I was so surprised this week when he recited Matthew 19:14 by memory all by himself! I didn't realize he was capable at this age, but I was so blessed by that and he just beamed! Needless to say, we are having fun and are looking forward to another great year. Deacon is growing his first tooth and has not been the happiest boy on the block, but this too shall pass :)

Well, my "quick update" has turned long and I have small people to put to bed so I will sign off. Thank you all for your prayers and thoughts. God is speaking to us here and revealing His faithfulness to us in so many ways. I know that sounds cliche-ish, but I will share more as things come to pass.

All our love,

The Fair's

We are pleased to know you are doing well. You have a wonderful casa and what you're doing is a blessing to many people that keep tabs on you. Good luck with SST, tell Nathan hellp for us. We miss you guys and I plan on coming to Mexico for an outreach with Grace Community Church (our new Church home) sometime in October. Carpenters for Christ project is what we'll be working on. Love you guys - all the best!
