Rosie’s Granny


In December while visiting the St. Louis Campus, I noticed a woman & a young boy sitting at a table upstairs where the Americans eat. We were there decorating the campus for the Orphanage Christmas Party. I couldn’t understand who she was or what she wanted. She motioned for me to come over.  I sat […]

Flour, Oil, & Antibiotics


Flour, Oil, & Antibiotics BY CASTILLO ON MARCH 6, 2015 • ( LEAVE A COMMENT ) While my faith in God is great, at times I feel like the skeptic widow when Elijah told her to make him some pancakes (or something like that) from 1 Kings 17. She had only enough for herself and […]

Surely We Can Change….Something


The kids and I have been looking through photos from our past five years…there’s over 50,000 pictures and even when you select sort by date – it doesn’t work!! Makes for an interesting slide show as we flip through them all! As you know when teams come to Haiti we ask for their camera cards […]

Rebuilding A Work Worthy of Our King…


When I was in college, I had a fascination for the social sciences. One of the areas that I truly loved was learning how our dreams reflect how we perceive our current circumstances. I remember in particular the topic of death in dreams. Interestingly enough, when you dream of someone dying or even of yourself […]
