Thoughts on: Love, birth, rebirth, travels

Have you had the opportunity to step out of your comfort zone, multiple times, to see our God encountered & worshipped in different cultures? Almost everyone has been part of celebrating a wedding, celebrating love reflecting the way God loves us, but have you ever seen a baby brought into the world? Have you seen the life of an addict change as they encounter the Truth in Jesus Christ? The newness of life as one experiences freedom & is washed clean by the blood of the Lamb. The last few months have been ever so full of activity, but also of seeing God.

If you visit my album page, you’ll see a lot of new pictures. In the beginning of May I had the opportunity to travel to Indiana for my cousin Phil’s wedding. Had a birthday. Have had a lot of work to do as many have come to know Jesus here in Jarabacoa. As Director of Integration & as a cell group leader its a privilege to see God’s Truth bring freedom to lives, cleansing the past, restoring individuals, marriages, families…

This next school year there is a probability that the Timothy School, the school that our church has for shoe shine boys off the streets, will be in desperate need of teachers. So, the church leadership sent me to San German, Puerto Rico for a week of training in the ACE (Accelerated Christian Education) method & curriculum so that if needed they can use me as a teacher part time the next school year. The 12 days I spent in Puerto Rico with Jesecca Ortiz, the current Administrator of the Timothy School, were extremely full & busy as we shared the vision of the project in various churches, met with individuals, did some sight seeing & hours upon hours of training & homework. It was a time of reaffirmation for the heart God has placed in me for what He’s doing in the Dominican Republic.

One of the women from my cell group gave birth a week ago. Being a 20-something single woman, I have only seen babies born on TLC or the Discovery Channel, until last week she wanted me in the delivery room to record & be nearby. The more I see of life… birth (physical) & rebirth (spiritual), I’m convinced of the greatness of the God it is a privilege to love & serve. There is no one like Him! May He continue to make Himself known in our lives & in this world, because the greatest thing in the world is that, having a relationship with the Creator of the universe.
