a bit about us

My name is Megan - or Magi as I'm known here in Mexico!  My husband's names is Edgar Armando (or "Mando" as my niece and nephew call him!)...

Each of us is called to seek & serve God; many years ago He asked me to do so among & alongside the people in Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico. It was here in Tijuana where I met Armando.  We have been married since October 2012 and are excited to welcome a little girl to our family in February of 2014!

Armando and I host a twice weekly breakfast for children in our neighborhood called Panes y Pecesillos (Little Loaves and Fishes)Right now we have about 50-60 children that come on Tuesday and Thursday mornings for a Bible lesson and a hot meal.  Our hope is to eventually expand this ministry to include breakfast and/or lunch five days each week, along with job skills training and other classes.

Beyond this, we simply try to embody the love of Jesus for our Tijuana neighbors: “…to know people by name, to eat and drink with them, to listen to their stories and tell your own, and to let them know with words, handshakes and hugs that you do not simply like them, but truly love them… The greatest news of all is that God is with His people, that He is truly present. What greater ministry can be practiced than a ministry that reflects this presence?” (Henri Nouwen, Gracias: A Latin American Journal).  I truly believe that our most important ministry is that of convivir – literally, “to live with” – the people of Tijuana.

This blog is a place where you can join with me, and where I can hacer memoria - "make memory" & tell of the kindnesses & faithfulness & grace of our God in our own story...

It will mostly be focused on our life & ministry in Mexico, but also on other pieces of our journey as we seek & serve God.

Thanks for joining me!
