two shows with us.
|We are Dave and Barbara Sanders, founders of
Fishin Mission Adventures.
Originally from Philomath, a rural town between Salem and Eugene, OR,
we sold our home, put Dave's custom home design business on hold,
closed Barbara's real estate business, and moved to Tepic Nayarit
Mexico in November 2006. We came with a dream to establish a business
that would bring in a steady income to help a Christian, donation
supported orphanage called Casa de Ninos in Tepic. The Casa takes in
orphaned, abused and abandoned children from Tepic and the
surrounding area and gives them a loving, safe place to live, grow, and
heal from the hurts and pains they have suffered in their short lives.
Because of the insufficient income the Casa has been limited in the
number of children they can take in and the wonderful staff work for a
pittance of a salary. With Dave's love for, and skill in, bass fishing and
Lake Aguamilpa being only an hour away, we began Fishin Mission
Adventures. From the beginning the vision for Fishin Mission
Adventures has been two-part. First to establish a business for financial
support and secondly a place of retreat the children and staff can also
come to for healing and growth. Proceeds from all fishing packages go
to the Casa de Ninos Frank Gonzales.
We have been followers of the Lord Jesus Christ most of our lives and
desire that our personal lives, family, and business be a witness of His
gracious goodness and love to us. Our immediate family includes our
daughter, Jenn, as well as our son, Michael, who lives in Seattle with his
wife, Amy, and our grandsons, Evan and Quinn.
We invite you to take the opportunity soon to come visit this beautiful
area of Mexico to fish, play with the Casa kids, and be a part of what God
is doing here.
Benediciones! Dave & Barbara
Our future goals include the construction of a 4 unit lodge and 2
bedroom cabin on our lake front property. In addition to accommodating
anglers during the fishing season the cabin and Lodge will be used for
ministry events such as men's, women’s, and couple’s retreats during
the off season and on available weekends. They will also allow us to
provide the Casa kids with the needed opportunities to experience life
away from the city on occasions. We are concerned with being able to
provide some of the older kids opportunities to learn basic job skills. We
would like to provide an environment where Godly work ethics can be
It is our intention that Fishin Mission Adventures would be donated in it’s
entirety to the Casa de Ninos in the future. This will provide the Casa
with additional financial resources to care for more of Tepic’s orphaned,
abandoned, and abused children.
Would You Like to Help ?
We have always subscribed to the old and familiar adage,
“Give a man a fish and you will feed him for a day, but teach him how to
fish and you will feed him for a lifetime”

provide a continuing source of financial support for the work being done
