2 and Counting

I’m exciting that we are expecting another child. Each child is a blessing from the Lord!


Psalm 127:3-5

Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one’s youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them! He shall not be put to shame when he speaks with his enemies in the gate.

Psalm 139:13-16

For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them.


im000712.JPGWhen I was in Argentina I had the opportunity to go see a friend of mine named Ezequiel. In December he was in a accident. He walking in the street and a car hit him and it dragged him a long ways. I was praying for my friend Ezequiel at this time but I didn’t know he was in an accident until sometime in March. He almost died from the accident but the Lord protected him. So when I was down in Argentina I got to go see him and he was getting better. Attached is a photo of Him and me. Pray for Ezequiel that he would be strong spiritually and pray for the salvation of his family.

The Mice

im000734.JPGThis May I had the opportunity to go to Argentina to live in a church. I lived in a town called la Union. I stay in a small room in the back of the church by the kitchen. This room had mice and we could hear them every once it the while because sometimes they would eat the bread we left out. So we hung up the food from the ceiling to keep the mice from eating the bread. But one night while I was sleeping a mouse fell on top of me from trying to climb up to get the food. I yelled a little bit and my room mates laughed. The photo is my bed I slept in.

Hernan Flores

Hernan FloresIn this post I would like to talk about my friend Hernan Flores. He is one of my best buddies in Argentina. He is studying in the Word of Life Bible Institute in Argentina. He hopes to become a preacher and desires to one day come to the United States of America or work in Argentina as a Missionary. He will soon begin his second year in the Bible Institute and I ask that you pray for him in his studies and as God leads him in the future. He helps and teachs at the youth group at his church in La Unión Argentina. Pray also for the Church in Unión that God would bless the Church and Hernans ministry.

I have a dream

I have a dream of reaching the world for Christ.  I have a dream of a place where there is no pain, and no crying.  I dream of a place where there is no more struggle.  I have a dream of a peace and love that the world does not understand.  I have a dream not of this world because I am not of this world.  I have the hope of heaven and the rest in Christ and I need to live in the World but not of the World.
