December Dazzle

[[[EN ESPAÑOL ABAJO]]] I should probably blog before something happens that will drastically change our lives.  Whatever that might be. December has been an amazing month.  So many cool things have been happening.  I’ve been transitioning into my new job at our church as a ministry assistant.  I get to be a part of an…

La muerte, el inesperado destino inevitable.

Por Osiris Castillo (Siervo de Cristo) La muerte es un tema del que todos tenemos un conocimiento muy limitado. Cuando alguien está enfermo, no podemos tener completa seguridad de qué tipo de enfermedad tiene, hasta primero ver los síntomas, y luego ir al medico para después de unos análisis esperar el resultado y determinar cuál…

Luther. Bonhoeffer. Gutenberg.

I must begin this post by celebrating that at least one of my favorite teams has made it to the World Cup FINAL: GERMANY!   Did you know I spent a couple of summers in Germany?  Did you know how much I love the German language and the German people?  Did you know that some…

Good Days. :)

We had a blast this weekend with The Alabama Gunter Gang.  We met up with the group on Saturday morning at the old city to help the team do their souvenir shopping and enjoyed lunch with them at Adrian Tropical – a restaurant with typical Dominican food.  That was lots of fun for us.  //…

Nubes de Espuma // Foam Clouds :)

El lunes en la noche, llego un grupo de Alabama con nuestro amigo John G. para ayudar a construir la iglesia Cristo Viene. Desde el martes, Osiris ha tenido la oportunidad de participar con el grupo con la construcción. Ayer, yo tuve el privilegio de ayudar con una actividad para los niños. ¡En verdad ha…
