Thoughts on the American Race…

Have you bought a house yet?  How many kids do you have?  Which fun and trendy toys, trinkets, or tools do you have?  What apple products do you own?  What kind of car do you drive? These are questions I hear all the time from people our age.  Not in those words exactly, but that’s…

The OMSA Bus The OMSA bus is a BIG GREEN bus that is quite organized.  It…

Getting hit by the Piñata

Osiris and I read through a portion of scripture during breakfast and we’ve been reading through John 6 this weekend. John 6 is my favorite chapter in all the Bible.  Have you ever read it?  Just thinking about what Jesus does in that chapter blows me away! Here’s what happens:  (It is aaaall paraphrased, ok?)…

Turning Hell into Heaven

When I was little, I heard my dad give an illustration of heaven and hell in one of his sermons.  You’ve probably heard it before.  A different version perhaps, but same idea. He described hell as a place with a long dining table with people, chained to the table, sitting on each side and a…

Proverbs gives me tummy aches.

Hi.  It’s Dam, here. So.  I’ve been reading through Proverbs since September.  Very sloooowly, obviously.  Partly because it’s full of good stuff so I need to eat it little by little in order to digest it well.  The other part is because sometimes I suck at doing a daily devotional by myself.  Osiris helps me out…

Why am I such a Misfit?

On the eve of Christmas Eve, Osiris and I watched two of my favorite Christmas specials:  Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer Charlie Brown Christmas I love these two because I have always been able to relate to the main characters of these shows.  Both Hermey and Rudolph are both different from their social settings and Charlie…

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…

The women on the TV shows…

Hi. Last month, I started reading Galatians. It had been a few months since I sat down by myself to study a book of the Bible. I had been reading my Spanish Bible, but I realized that as I read, my mind wandered and I end up not engaging the scripture at all. I shared…

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…

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…
