Lila continues to be involved with Casa Compasiva fund-raising, promotion in local churches, writing and editing materials on their behalf, consulting with Dan and Adria, and relationships with Oaxacan staff.

Ellie continues his involvement with the migrant workers in the Delta area of BC. This year it has mostly taken the form of picking up, fixing, and delivering bikes to workers who need them and sharing gospel materials, an audio Bible, and prayer with each worker. Although he attempted to join forces with another local ministry teaching English classes and Bible studies for migrants, that did not pan out as the other ministry did not want help.

Lila and Ellie travelled to Oaxaca in summer last year to spend some time at Casa Compasiva. During their five weeks in Oaxaca, they met with, prayed with, counselled, helped, and encouraged many, many people.

“As time and strength permits, we open our home in hospitality to others, share the gospel and pray for those who need it, mentor and counsel those who ask, and provide for the physical needs of others in practical ways as we are able.”
