Lori left very specific instructions about how she wanted to celebrate her journey into Heaven.
Please keep praying peace and strength over our family as we begin to make arrangements that we pray will honor her.
At the end of the day…what I have learned after 3 of the most mind-boggling, gut-wrenching, totally confusing, & painful days….. the prayer is simply…. Thy Will Be Done.
We appreciate your continued prayers during this difficult time. Believing God is good…even though this doesn’t feel good at all.
God was strong enough to shut the mouths of the lions and save His servant Daniel. When we need strength, God will give that same strength to us as well. If we have faith even a fraction of Daniel’s, we can face any fear knowing that God is behind us!
Malaya & I returned home on Friday. Though we weren’t here for Easter Sunday – we celebrated together as a family this past weekend. This upcoming Friday we will host our Easter Egg Hunt & Children’s Church Party!
Last night we celebrated Rosie & Isabelle’s birthday with an Emoji-themed sleepover!
On Christmas Eve, over 700 people gathered on our basketball court for a Christmas devotional, dance performances from the Castillo kids, special singing, peanut butter sandwiches with hot chocolate, & the Nativity Movie.
One of our favorite family traditions is feeding the elderly in our community on Christmas Eve. We invited 200 adults/elderly from our community to come at 1pm for a short devotional, song time, prayer time, fellowship, & food!
It’s our desire & prayer that these past 4 weeks have not only been a lot of fun….but that our lessons filled these sweet children with INCREDIBLE HOPE and gave a better understanding of what Christmas is all about!
