Jason and Nicole left for their trip to the states on Monday and will be gone till October 15.  

School started this week. The schooling system here is divided into 4 parts: Kindergarten, Primary(grades 1-6), Secondary(7th, 8th, and 9th), and High School(10th-12th). Most of the children here in the Village are in Kindergarten and Primary school. There are 3 Kindergarteners and 7 in Primary who are all under the same teacher;  5 students going to the local public school in La Gallera, 4 to high school and 1 to Secondary. Things seem to be going smoothly so far.

Evelyn has been going to the chiropractor twice a week for 3 weeks and she is starting to see good results. Today the chiropractor said she only needs to go once a week now, so we are very relieved. 

We are still getting daily rainfall. It's changed from July's late in the afternoon to later on when we are going to bed. The rain can be pretty heavy though, on some occasions, according to the buckets we've had over 4 inches. 

We have stopped selling bread for the time being, mostly because they've started doing school and there really isn't anybody else to go sell. So we get to sleep in till 6 now:)

Thank you all for your prayers and support!!!! God Bless. 


  1. Greetings to the Asher Clan. We in Africa salute you. We miss and love you too. I hope everything is going the way you have hoped. I would love to hear about some of your battles and would love to tell you some of mine. We here in Nakuru want to be more in your lives. Much love amma, abba and team.

  2. Dear Asher family. Thank you so much for all you do and the sacrifices you make for the people in Mexico. Noah and I were just talking about how discouraging it is to post blogs and get no comments. I was convicted. Although I always read your blogs and pray for you I am very remiss at letting you know that. We love you so much and you are always in our thoughts and prayers. Haviylah

  3. Sleep in till 6?! :D Congratulations! Great to hear that Evelyn is doing better! Love you guys!
