Welcome to a window into our world.
We have been fortunate enought to have lived in various places around the world and have enjoyed and been challenged by the faith, education, wildlife, work, culture and people we have encountered. These experiences have also moulded us in our thinking and contemplation. Some insights we have shared below.

Future - April 09

In the summer, we will be relocating from Colorado and leaving IFM. While working with IFM in Juarez we have seen the extreme violence that is impacting the city and the Mexican people. This has confirmed for us the need for local, national and global partnerships that focus on issues facing children at risk, people being trafficked and forced into slavery, oppressed families and the poor. This has only reinforced the insights we have gained from our time in India and the UK (and IFM,) that the love of Jesus, the practical message of the kingdom that Jesus taught and the action of the community of believers are the answers for the hurting, abused and disadvantaged of our society.

Therefore, we as family will be looking to depart Colorado on the 7th July and relocate to Los Angeles, via the UK, at the beginning of fall 2009, to study and partner with Oasis US.

Oasis US helps equip the church with a focus on local and global issues of justice for children at risk, people caught in trafficking and slavery, community development and church planting. Oasis US is a local expression of a global network of Christians (http://www.oasisglobal.org/) and in the 90’s we worked with Oasis India in Mumbai where we developed an AIDS care community for women and children from the slums and red light area of the city.

Currently Oasis US work amongst multiracial and diverse communities. Each of these communities are intricately tied back to their original countries of origin and in the Hispanic communities that means into the injustice and abuse that is currently going on with the drug wars and border violence.

We are writing to give you details of our leaving date and to invite you to join with us as we seek to implement this opportunity. There are a number of ways in which you can join in and support us.


  • Firstly, we would appreciate your prayers as we leave IFM & Colorado and move into a new setting, change is always unsettling and stressful.
  • Secondly, we invite you to join us in financial support. This has two thrusts to it.

§ The first is joining our long term financial team

§ The second is in short term immediate support and helping us raise specific one off funding, similar to the support needed for a mission trip, which will assist us in moving into this new venture.

Over our time we have been involved in various global grassroots mission and church developments. Each of these ventures has had a lasting kingdom impact. To contact us leave a comment or email at kevin@potterabout.com
