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…

Runners, Run.

Al arbol que da fruta, a ese le tiran piedras. – – – The tree that gives fruit is the tree they throw rocks at. -anonymous Osiris shared that local saying with me the other day after receiving several obnoxious comments from onlookers as we ran past them at 7:00 a.m. This is what we…

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,…

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…

I Remember November.

This month has brought us nothing but good things.  Although Osiris and I have been extremely busy, we’ve managed to make time for ourselves.  I think this month, we’ve grown so much together and we’ve enjoyed each other so so much. // Este mes a traido puras cosas buenas.  Aunque Osiris y yo hemos estado super…

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…

Adventure with Amy & No Habla Español, too bad.

Where do I begin?  This month isn’t even over, and we’ve already done everything possible that could be done in just a few short weeks. Okay – During the last day with the group, Osiris was called for an interview with an organization here in the DR that works with at-risk children.  The following Tuesday, Osiris…

July Fun

Well, it has been a busy and fun July!  Due to the lack of time, I will only be sharing a few pictures with captions. // Que mes tan ocupado y divertido!  Debido al poco tiempo, solo voy a compartir unas cuantas fotos.     Thanks for stopping by! -Osiris & Damaris  

July! ….adventure awaits!

First of all, I want to say “Thank You!” to all who read the previous blog on Covenant.  We love sharing what we are learning and we loved all the feedback as well.  Thanks!  // Primeramente, gracias a todos quien leyeron el blog previo sobre Pacto.  Nos gusta compartir lo que aprendemos y nos encanto saber…
