Sissy Missionary

The first building was a chicken coop.  What humble beginnings for such a large vision. The second building didn’t give much of a clue to the great things to come, either.  It was an outhouse. I told Bill, I was just getting to old to use “bush toilets”. This last weekend as I walked around […]

Baby Rebecca’s Hospital Visit

Rebecca has two, perfect little feet. I can tickle either one and it will elicit giggles and grins and that little smile that says, “Do it again.”   So why would anyone even think about amputating such a perfect little foot? Well, that has been foremost in our minds over this last year as we […]

The Accidental Pastor

  My Husband Bill calls himself, the accidental pastor. For years I have heard him adamantly say that he is NOT a pastor. Life with the Lord is full of surprises. Eleven years ago we started a Bible school here in Arriaga. We have had some amazing fruit come out of that blessed time. Many […]

The School of Tomorrow in Arriaga

      You have to get completely out of the boat to walk on water! This was the phrase that came to me as we looked at the upcoming school year. Little by little we had been taking a few children out of public school and teaching them at home.  I have to admit, […]

Blessings

OK, wrap your head around this one…Several years ago, I felt lead of the Lord to hold a women’s conference here in Arriaga. I invited several good friends and speakers to come to Arriaga and we had a blast with the women in our area. One day after the teaching session I invited the speakers […]

Breathe

Just breathe. Sometimes when I think about all the responsibility that we have taken on, I have a tendancy to want to panic. I have to tell myself, “O.K. Tammy, just breathe.” Then I remind myself that “His yoke is easy and His burdens are light.” In reality the responsibility is His, not mine. Rebecca and Kimberly, […]

Lord, make me like my dog.

I have two little dogs, through no fault of my own. It’s Becky Tedrow’s fault Becky is a fellow missionary in northern Mexico and we both are “dog people”.  She felt my life was incomplete after the death of our little dog a few years ago. So, while we were visiting in the States, she […]

Meet Maylin

We can’t take any more children until we get the house built on the ranch.  We all decided that this was what was best because we are short staffed and a little cramped with 23 children in our home.  I think we said the same thing when we had fifteen. There always seems to be […]
