June this year brought us a very large milestone as our oldest child (adult now) graduated from the Mexico City Christian Academy. Elizabeth Joy Hancock received high academic honors and graduated first in her class of 3. We were glad to have lots of family and friends present with us. We send out a special thanks to all of our guests who flew and drove in to celebrate this honorable occasion.
Richard Mikels (Grandpa), Aunt Tina Newland, and Aunt Tonya Mikels celebrating Elizabeth’s graduation.
Uncle Todd and Aunt Tonja Hancock and cousins Mitchell, Mallory, and Lizzet drove over from Puebla, Mexico to honor the graduate as well.
Shirley Carter (“Nanny” grandmother) flew in from Henderson, Kentucky to visit both graduates. Congratulations also to Mallory Hancock (pictured below) who graduated from Puebla Christian School in May (one week before Elizabeth).
Pictured above: Elizabeth, Patrick Barchett, Mallory Hancock, and Corbin Hancock at PCS graduation. Patrick Barchett is a family friend and member of First Christian Church Evansville, Indiana who accompanied Shirley Carter on her visit to Mexico and celebrated both graduations.
June 2017 has also brought in its wake many goodbye’s, especially for Elizabeth who is leaving Mexico to attend the Huntington University in Indiana beginning August 24, 2017.
Please pray for the Hancock family as we leave Mexico for the summer months to visit many of our USA partner churches, family, and friends. We will be traveling through Texas on our way to Lakeland, Florida beginning June 12. We will be in Tennessee in late June. We will be in Western Kentucky and southern Indiana in early July. We will be traveling to Indianapolis in mid-late July at the CMF home offices; Ohio in early August; Eastern Illinois in mid-August and finally Huntington, Indiana by August 24 to help Elizabeth move in to the dormitory for the start of her University career.
We will be driving in and out of Mexico for this US Tour so we appreciate your prayers. We still have a few available dates and would love to visit with you this summer. Please call 513-277-0273 for scheduling.
May God bless and keep you!
With love and prayers,
Casey, Teri, Elizabeth, Corbin, and Ian Hancock
