Children’s Church – Walking On Water…


Friday night my kids were helping me prepare for today’s church service. I can’t say enough how much I love it when our whole family works together! I even saw them practicing the memory verse from last week too. I’m just so proud of the way they are so willing to engage in what we […]

Children’s Church – Lion’s Den


It was another great Sunday morning! Though church isn’t supposed to start until 9:30am – the children were there at 9am – ready to learn! LOVE THAT! The first thing we did was take attendance & go over last week’s & this week’s memory verses! It still amazes me when I see 4 year olds […]

Children’s Church – Kicking It Old School…


September is my month to lead Children’s Church! Each month the stories match a Fruit of the Spirit. I’m teaching on PEACE! So my lessons are Shadrach/Meshach/Abednego, Daniel and the Lion’s Den, Peter walking on water, and the Holy Spirit. While I was in the States healing from back surgery – I decided to work on […]

Home Is Where My Kids Are…


Friday morning I was able to start the journey home to Mole after being in the states for 53 days. It’s the longest I’ve ever been away from my family. My time out was focused on recovery: from the car accident, from painful back surgery, & from ripping scar tissue. Jose flew out of the […]

Safe AND Secure?


When I tell people I live in Haiti I’m often asked one of these two questions: 1 – Do you feel safe? 2 – Do you feel secure? The answer to both of those questions is YES! And although they sound like the same question – they couldn’t be more different. When I was a […]

The Mole Summer 2014 Quote Book Visit her blog This summer because we did not have many teams we spent a lot of time hanging out with the Castillo kids whether it was just at meal time, our secret project, movie night, or activity days. While we hung out with them there were many times […]

Every Day…


We thought of you with tears today, But that is nothing new. We thought about you yesterday, Every day before that too. We think of you in silence, Though the kids often speak your name. We laugh & share our memories, While hugging on your picture frame. Your memory is our keepsake, With which we’ll […]

Happy 7th Birthday Gabriel!


Gabriel was born on July 21st – 8 weeks early! I wasn’t able to even hold him before he was rushed to the NICU where he spent many weeks on a breathing machine. Twice we were told that he would probably not live through the night. The tears stream down my cheeks just thinking about […]

No Exceptions?


Our family rarely visits  amusement parks in the states because it’s a little crazy going with all of our kids. There’s nothing worse than standing in line for 30 minutes only to get to the front and see that sign that says,  “You must be 48inches tall to ride”. That means the girls can go […]
