WOW! I can’t believe it’s already been a month since I posted last. Life has been absolutely crazy-busy! This is the busiest schedule we’ve had in the states.

I’m sorry if we’re unable to meet up with all our friends/supporters this time out but please know we love you! Also please pray for our sanity as we travel 12-17 hours at a time in a van full of crazy Castillos.

Happy Birthday Asher, Levi, Mikela, & Gabriel!

Thanks for giving my children a Papaw that they can be proud of. That they can learn from. One that sacrifices just as much for them – as you have always done for your own children. Thanks for showing them what it means to be the Lord’s Mighty Warrior.

Americans go home and often wonder – did I make a difference? Did my presence here matter? I was only here for a week.

Well….if you can “take home” one important thing from this blog post – please don’t ever doubt – – that lives can completely and forever be changed – in just ONE week.

Happy 1st Birthday Fabi!

Will you pray that with us? Will you please pray for wisdom and guidance so that we may do the very best thing for this beautiful baby that God as allowed us to love & care for?

Easter Choir Performance!

The other song is called I surrender. This song has a lot of meaning for us. I talked to the congregation before we sang. Every person in this church knows sorrow – has lost someone they love – has experienced a heavy load. We know suffering all too well.

Happy Easter 2016

The service started at 5am. There were 60 kids in church by 4:45am! I was SO impressed. By 6:15 the church was full.
