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 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 […]

Join the Dollar Club! A few days ago my kids opened up a special card from a very special lady. To their pleasant surprise – each card had a dollar in it. I love that my children are very mission-minded. They know that we are struggling to find sponsors for the orphanage. My BOYS said wouldn’t […]

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 […]
