Love the quotes this week! God bless,
GREAT quotes today, Tom.
Good morning to Cancun Christian Fellowship If we want to
make cash donations, where can we do this? Take care & best regards,
I always enjoy all the newsletter quotes Tom
Cherilyn (and Tom :) ), This is Nancy
...We are now
back home in Ohio after an amazing trip and time with the kids. Sorry it took a
while to email. Jumped right back in to high school graduation and out-of-town
company. We took time to look at pictures last night and were so thankful for
our time with you guys.
The kids asked several times during the week to go back to
Casa Hogar. We all really were so blessed to get to know you guys and to see
what God is doing through Christians of many backgrounds in respect to the
orphanage there. I know that this will be a memory that stays with all of us
for many years to come, and will continue to impact us as we seek to follow Him
in our various situations and pursuits.
We would love to keep in touch! We will be continuing to
watch the blog and would love to dialog from time to time. We just put our name
on the available list to take a new foster child, so I am sure I will be up in
the night with the baby numerous times. Some of my best "catching up" time. :)
Thanks again for the time and hospitality you showed to us.
May God continue to bless the work you are doing in your corner of the world.
We failed to get a picture on our camera of you guys and all
of us together. Whoever took that picture accidentally pushed the video button
instead. If you got one on your camera and it is not difficult, we would love
an email. We will probably print it out and put the cross you gave us with it
somewhere prominent where we can continue to keep you guys and the work you are
doing in the forefront of our minds and prayers as we continue to "pray without
ceasing" for His work to be accomplished.
Nancy and Roger
Tom, you and Cherilyn are doing a great job with the church
and mission outreach. We absolutely enjoyed with spent with you and look
forward to bringing a group from our church to help make repairs at the
orphanage. We will pray for Pastor Mancilla and Esther and the children God has
placed in the care of Casa Hogar. Keep up the wonderful work
call us if
you need help and we will see you again soon.
Thanks for the gift, you guys are so sweet, you made my day
thanks a lot...Have a wonderful day!
Thanks for the invite to the men's breakfast bible
study/women's fellowship and the orphanage tour, as well as having lunch with
us. Carolyn and I (& Juliete) had a great time. Have a GREAT rest of the
week. God be with you till we meet again!
Tom, thanks a lot for your always wonderful words, I will
make them available to all my staff. They will really appreciate them.
Dear Tom and Cherilyn,
It was such a blessing to "find"
you all last Sunday and to visit the Children's home on Wednesday! (We also
loved visiting the American School, thanks to Nancy!) I love your quotes in the
church's newsletter, and wonder how you found so many good ones?
Hola Tom, keep up the LORD's work. The newsletters are
Andy and June
Tom and Cherilyn, thank you so much for the courtesy and
time extended to us on our recent trip to Mexico. Your Sunday service and the
children at the home were the highlights of our trip and we can't stop talking
and thinking about what you are doing. It all comes down to the fact that you
guys are remarkable. We will be talking to study groups in our local church,
spreading our story and working on donations to assist your work in Bonfil.
Rest assured our paths will cross again in the near future. Until then, may our
fabulous Father bless you and your mission vision.
The pastor and his wife have been in my prayers.
When we were there 1 year ago his health was not 100%. Is he doing ok, praying
for God to bless him and remove any health problems. The church we attend in
Indiana wants to send some money. Out of nowhere my pastor came to me and said
God has led him to send money to the Mexican orphanage we told them about. He
is a good man of God and if God says do something then he does it. No idea how
much money but I am sure it will be just what God wants.
I really wanted to send you and Tom a message last
week but it went so fast with the kids here. We really appreciate the job you
both do for the church and children. We are glad we finally found such a
friendly and loving church family. We would gladly drop off flyers at the
hotels to spread the word about the church service and orphanage work. We will
be leaving 4/26 for home. We are planning on coming back in July. We will not
be in church for Easter but will be back next week.
Looks like a lot of work. You've done real good boy.
Sunday is almost here and I'm sure your hearts and minds are
in gear for another Lord's Day. May the Lord help you and supply all that you
need. May all technical equipment work without any problems. May God be
glorified. Cheri, I pray you are feeling strong and well. I cannot wait to be
part of the service. Praying for your Sunday...Thank you for alllll the work
you do to make it a possibility for the English church to continue.
So sorry I haven't written. We got home
very early Sunday morning, and have barely had time to catch our breath. Thank
you so much for the photos. I have some for you too, which I am editing. The
girls and I are so thankful that we got to visit with you and the children. I
am glad that we brought useful things. The girls enjoyed their play time so
much! We hope to return again, just not sure when. Please say hello to Tom for

My husband & I are visiting Cancun at the end of
November & were trying to do a little mini- missions ourselves. I saw on
your website that you were accepting donations of clothing, school supplies,
etc.. and we were wondering if we could possibly donate to your church. Is
there a need for clothing or care boxes for kids or are there needs that you
have on your hearts that need to be filled? We do praise & worship at our
church in Holdingford, MN at the Community Country Church. Please let me know
if we can set up a dialogue about a possible donation.
I hope all is well in Cancun/Puerto Morelos.
Give me an update on how you and Cherilyn and how the orphanage is doing. We'll
try to get back down there in April.
Hey down there. Remember the ride you gave us back to Moon
Palace!! Are you still meeting at B2B?? Please give time you meet. We sure did
appreciate the ride that Sunday. Tommy and I are doing okay. My email is on
high block, so please ask to be added to my address book. Thanks,
Thank YOU and Cherie for the opportunity. You both know I
have wanted this for a long time! God's wonderful timing! Praying! XOXO
Gday from Downunder!
I've forgotten the name of the
pastor there in Cancun. We worshipped with you in November, 2011 for just 1
Sunday. Met the guy who drove the Corvette and a few other folk. Appreciate
your newsletters and the fact that you now have "new" premises. Praise the
Cheers, Grahame & Fay
Hi, I found your email from the webpage while I was looking
information about orphanages because I would love to do some voluntary work
giving art classes and other activities sometimes, since I now live in Cancun.
It has been very hard to find telephone numbers and addresses and I was
wondering if you could help me.
Thank you! Sirli
A NEW CHURCH LOCATION
YEAH :)))))))))))))))))) I'm
sooooooooooo happy for you...praise God from whom all blessings flow.
Hi Tom and Cherie,
I am praying for you and the new
service location and your strength in the LORD this morning. Please tell me all
My husband and I will be vacationing at
. Beach Riviera Cancun in Playa del Carmen from March 1st - 6th. We
are attending my husband's work retreat. My husband and I would love to visit
the Casa Hogar para Ninos Esperanza while we are down there if possible. Is the
current need still Spanish coloring books and clothing? I would love to speak
with someone more specifically about the needs of the specific children there
at the orphanage. I know this is last minute but if I can get an email out to
my church family early enough this week hopefully we can bring lots of goodies
with us for the children. We would also like to attend church at Cancun
Christian fellowship on Sunday but my husband's company may have activities
planned for us I'm not sure yet. Is the orphanage associated with a particular
denomination or other Christina association? My pastor would probably need to
know that information before authorizing me to contact our church body
requesting donations. Thank you and God bless!
Thank you for sending us the newsletter. We
attended Cancun Christian Fellowship for two weeks and hope to return again
this weekend. We will find the new location! I had a question for you. Do you
know of a place where we could donate adult clothing? I see the orphanage needs
children's clothing which makes sense to me. Unfortunately I don't have any
children's clothes but do have a bag of adult women clothes that I'd like to
donate somewhere if possible. If you know of a place I would appreciate it.
Thank you and hope to see you this Sunday.
God Bless You. Julie
I was doing some "looking" online and
found your website. My family and I will be in the Playa del Carmen area the
first week of April and we would like to visit the Casa Hogar that you support.
We were in Puerto Vallarta last year and visited a Casa Hogar there; it was an
amazing way to spend a day. I am wondering what items they need; do you have a
list that you can send? We will probably visit the Wal-Mart prior to going to
the home rather than bringing items from Denver. Please let me know what
information you can provide as well as their address. Thank you in advance, I
am looking forward to hearing from you!
Thank you so much for the speedy reply from Tom. As I told
him we will be arriving DV on the 13th May and will love to spend some time in
your fellowship. We are staying at the
.. so would appreciate directions
nearer the time of our arrival. This will be our first trip to Mexico and we
both still can't believe we are going.
Regards Lorraine & Cally
HELLO May I please introduce myself. My name is Lorraine and
my friend Cally and I are coming in May to holiday in Riviera Maya. I have been
looking on the internet for places of fellowship when we are there. I found
your info. We would really like to share some time with you. We both live and
work in London and are so looking forward to our first trip to Mexico. We would
both look forward to hearing from you, as each time we travel it is good to
share in fellowship with other Christians.

It's so wonderful to be wanted. I'm so
grateful the LORD saw fit to open up a new location...on several different
levels. Praise God. My dad and I are enjoying WARM weather...sunshine...life
here :)) See you Sunday!
Tom and Cherilyn,
I just received the
newsletter and I wanted to express my excitement over the relocation of the
Community of Faith English Service. I remember the facility well and feel you
have been blessed to be able to move the service there. Tom, for the past two
years, I have followed your leadership with the church as well as the mission
outreach with Cancun Christian Fellowship and you are doing a great job. I also
know the people around you, no matter how close, do not know what you go
through to accomplish all the tasks at hand. The thing is you make it look easy
and you keep moving forward, probably getting discouraged but never giving up.
You and Cherilyn have done amazing things at Casa Hogar
I know you have a
lot of help, but someone has to lead or the job never gets done. You and
Cherilyn have my continuing gratitude for your vision and leadership. I hope to
be back in Cancun in about three months and I will see you then my friend. Keep
up the great work,
Gracias Tom and family. I will be there
Sunday, 26th at 10:00. God bless you. It is a very good location and you are
will grow very fast at Plaza Tokal. Congratulations. We are going to pray for
you. Thanks Rodolfo
Thanks Tom, I also see that happening, and
can't wait to be one of your members. We only wish we could be there to help
with the renovation. Thanks for the updates on the work and fellowship. Keep up
the GOD work, Andy
You community is very welcoming and
friendly. We were blessed last Sunday by being here, both by your fellowship
and the sermon on peacemakers. Come join us at our church in Toledo if you ever
pass through on I-75. Lynn
Hi Tom, Just read the newsletter...it is
amazing how the LORD works, and supplies workers, money and various donations
isn't it? My thanks are for your stepping up to meet a real need...how many
years ago now? BUT, there has been much time, foot work, money, organization
(and the list goes on and on) for the work you and Cheri have done to keep the
English Church alive. So, I thank you. I know also (through my varied life)
sometimes the obstacles seem insurmountable. When we have much opposition, we
wonder IF we are on the right road after all. OR are the obstacles to test our
faith...OR to move us into another direction. Only with prayer and wisdom can
help you know what the Father wants. The work on the new septic system at Casa
Hogar...seemed awful...and then, wonderful. WOW Tom. What joy must fill your
soul with the help you have organized for this work of love for the children
and for the LORD. All thanks to God for the money, helpers, supplies and work
done to accomplish such a great task. What a wide range of heartache and joy
for the work you are doing. I wish I could condense my words...I know men don't
like all the blah blah, but I don't know how to do that. So, long story
short....Thank you. Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the
Lord Jesus Christ...Phil 1:2
Cherilyn, I just finished visiting your
website and first of all let me say I had such a rush of emotions it is hard to
pinpoint which one came first. Pride in seeing my childhood friend doing such
glorious works, sadness that any child would endure the things these children
do and joy that there are people in this world like you that give so much to
help the less fortunate. I shared this site with Dr. King and he asked that I
forward it to him. I would really like to help in some way but would need your
input as to how I could best do that. As you may or may not know, I am adopted
so viewing your site really touched me because but for the grace of God I was
raised in a warm loving home. I feel led to give back in some way. I write with
tears. God truly leads in the most unbelievable ways. I have felt the call to
do something in my life for quite some time and I truly believe God has led me
to your little orphanage. Look forward to hearing from you. Love and hugs from
Thank you for including us :-) Our kids said that it was the
best Christmas Eve they have ever had. Hope to do it again next year! :-)
Thanks for letting us know. I really appreciate it. And
thank you and your wife and those at the church for their caring about these
precious kids. Jon
God Bless YOU!!!! And all the wonderful work you do! Merry
Christmas! Your friends, The Sokels
We just wanted to send along Christmas
greetings to you and the kids at the orphanage. Thank you for how you and your
church continue to minister to the kids. Obviously, we won't make it down for
Christmas, but we will keep your family and the kids in our prayers. Jon,
Kristi, Jared and Kaylin
Dear Tom & Cherie: Happy Thanksgiving to
all of you. It is just a beautiful day. We hope you will all find yourselves
around the table with family or friends this Thanksgiving Day and be thankful
for each other and for what we have and for God's love to us. Happy
Thanksgiving from the Mancilla God Bless Pastor. Ascencio M. Mancilla.
Tom and Cherilyn, Susan and I are amazed
with the work you are doing in Mexico. We had a wonderful time visiting your
church and the beautiful children at Casa Hogar. Those experiences were
actually the best part of our vacation. We talked on the flight back to
Colorado, and to say the least, we are envious of your life there and your
commitment church and the orphanage. God has genuinely blessed your family. Our
family has so much and, in comparison, your family has so little but the inner
peace you have for life and your work shines like a beacon. I don't know how
you ended up in Mexico but you are where the Lord needs you to be, honoring Him
by serving others. God bless you and your work, Jason and Susan
Hello Cherie and Tom Thank you for taking
your time to share your work with us. You are truly amazing people. I don't
know the date but we will be back in Cancun soon and it would be our pleasure
to spend more time with you, your church family and the children and your
orphanage. God Bless You and keep up the great work. Brian
