There is so much to happen this week, some of us cannot even sleep and I think it is from the excitement of what to come, not due to the heat. I could sit here and write so much about our last few days, but the stories sound so much better in person. Just like the Grinch on Christmas morning, my heart is growing 3 times the size daily.
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!
I’m so thankful that we got to celebrate this special day with the Fisher Group! Though the candy is all gone now…the memory is priceless!
We covet your prayers always…. but we believe our Sovereign God will make His presence known even through this current tragedy. I have seen God redeem situations that seemed unredeemable. I have seen God move in places that seemed impossible. What is out of our hands…has never left His.
I have learned over the years that everything happens in HIS time. He knows the needs of our community and He knows the hopes/dreams we have for meeting those needs.
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!
