El Dad – The Interview – La Entrevista

Siempre se oye de los pensamientos de madres… como se siente ser mamá, como su vida a cambiado, que siente, que piensa, et cetera, et cetera.  PERO pocas veces se escucha de las experiencias de padres nuevos.  Es mas, parece que el padre se desaparece de la familia porque solo se ven fotos de mamá…

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…

Top 5 of 27

It’s my birthday. Today, I turn 28.  Whoa.  (I know you older folk are like “that’s nothing!”…and I’ll probably do the same in the future, but right now… it feels like something.) Every year I like to look back and highlight the top 5 moments of the previous year.  I loved doing it for friends at…

Not what we expected

Life hasn’t been exactly what we have expected it to be. We expected good news in August. Instead, we received challenging news. We expected good news in October. Instead, we got stupid news. On the other hand, we didn’t expect to see my parents until we got to America. Instead, we saw them in August….

Molding Us.

God has been so good in providing for us this month. Not just in providing for our physical needs, but for our spiritual and mental needs. It’s not easy to wait on something that you’ve worked so hard for but you don’t know when it will come. It can make us go crazy to think that…

Sovereignty

I like new days, new weeks, and most definitely new months! August was hard and I’m glad we made it out alive. September, on the other hand, is full of newness and hope! Already 5 days in, and a lot of wonderful things have happened. Praise God for September. God provides. Always. Sometimes, when you’re…

Prayers Answered.

Yesterday, we concluded another week with our 2nd team this month.  This was, once again, a very eventful week that flew by faster than I could count to 3. Monday– Osiris & I began translating for the team in a very poor neighborhood called Santa Rosa.  The team prayer-walked and got to know the barrio,…

Summer is Coming!

Howdy Y’all. Just a quick update for our busy readers.  It’s been a complicated and stressful last two weeks, dealing with a mess of paperwork, temperature changes, & sickness, but we are glad to say we made it to TODAY! Today was my last day of classes, which means that from here on out, Osiris…

On Fire!!

First of all, I want to thank our friends & family who stay up to date with our blog, even when I don’t write frequently.  Osiris has recommended that I try to write every Friday or every other Friday.  I’m gonna give it a shot. This week was pretty eventful in our world.  On Monday,…

Adventures in August-ie. (Mace, Mash… get it??)

Dear Readers / Queridos Lectores: It’s been an absolutely crazy last couple of months.  After Amy went back to Texas, we served with another amazing team from Alabama for a week.  We were both working AND translating for groups when we weren’t working.  /  Estos dos meses han sido absolutamente locos.  Despues de que Amy…

First Post :)

Happy Saturday! Feliz sabado! As you probably know, Osiris & I live in the Dominican Republic.  I learned quickly that in this island, jalapenos are not easily found.  And so, last month, a student from the school I work at, surprised me with a little bag of fresh jalapenos.  I’ve had them frozen, waiting for the…
