We are so blessed with an amazing organization called “Educate Nica” that helps so many of the kids in our community get sponsored for school, medical/dental care, and bright futures. Click on the picture to go to Educate Nica’s website and learn more!

Meet my precious friend Darwin from Santa Matilde. He needs a sponsor!
“Darwin lives with his mom, her boyfriend, and his two older siblings in a small, one room house made of tin, plastic, and cardboard. Darwin and his siblings have been passed around to various family members as his mom and dad have been in the midst of a custody battle. Darwin is in his first year of preschool. He likes to draw, paint and practice his letters in school. Darwin stutters and still has a very limited vocabulary for a child his age. Sponsorship would open doors to have him evaluated. It will also allow him to study consistently.”
Click on the picture to go to his sponsor page on the Educate Nica website to sponsor Darwin for $25 a month!

New friend! This is Syndi, she pierced my ear 🙂 She could definitely use prayer. Please pray that Rosita and I can be good examples in her life and provide her with love and encouragement to change her future.

I am so excited that Cadence is with us now! She is a great joy and comfort to me, I absolutely love our friendship that is growing. I’m excited to see all the ways that God is going to use her unique, passionate personality here at New Song!

Our church made the decision to appoint Saul as youth pastor. I have a great love and respect for him and his relationship with God. He has some great ideas that he would like to try with the youth and I am asking for prayer that we would have the wisdom to carry them out well.

Oh, how I love my dear friend Jovanny. He has lovingly and patiently taught me Spanish and how to dance Latino. He is incredibly intelligent and motivated, teaching himself English among a thousand other things. Jovanny is in university now and would love to do more things with English in the future. I have no doubt he can accomplish ANYTHING he sets his mind to!

Easter Sunday with my lovely Cadence and Rosita!

IMG_2307

Communion on Easter Sunday. This is such a big deal that some of the youth participated! Having almost all grown up in legalistic church backgrounds, there is a huge amount of controversy within the youth about who can take communion, who is really a christian, etc. We are trying to impress the truth that Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross covers it all, and we are made worthy by that. Keep praying that the youth believe and preach the truth!

I loved this little area of sleepy adorableness 🙂

Rosita’s back to playing Softball!

Cleaning out our wood-burning oven for the food that is going to be made for the restaurant! This picture never fails to crack me up 🙂 Christian and Rosita hard at work!!

My last day before my month in the States was Junieth’s Quinceañera. Here’s the church before it started! This is what I spent my morning doing – setting up the church.

Waiting for…oh about 2 hours for the ceremony to start. Typical.
