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…

Just Add Water

I used to be afraid to make things from scratch.  I realize now that it was because I was afraid of the imperfect outcome of my intentions.  I watched as my friends and family made amazing cakes and pies and tortillas from scratch and I’d say “You go, girl!”  As for me, if it didn’t…

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…

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,…

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…

Water & Covenant

A few weeks ago, we experienced something that is apparently common in apartment buildings.  If we speak to you often, you’ll know what I’m talking about.  It’s a matter of water.  Osiris and I live on the 4th floor of a big pink apartment building with about 4 apartments on each floor.  Each tenant has…

Algo Rapido…

Just a quick post since it’s been a week.  Osiris and I are doing well.  We’ve been going on runs and working out together when the weather doesn’t allow being outdoors.  We’ve found that exercising together really enhances our friendship and unity as a married couple.  It offers a different sense of bonding.  Also, we’re…

Race Against the Sky

Anything we do in this country is a race against the sky. One thing I discovered early on is how connected to the sky the lifestyle here is. As a foreigner that comes from a place where the big blue sky can look the exact same way for days, with no apparent atmospherical change, I…
