He is Risen!

“I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.” Galatians 2:20

This is my life verse! As we celebrated Easter this month, the resurrection of Jesus from the grave is the reason why I am a Christian! I love this special day each year, it is a definite highlight in our church and with family!

For the first time in a very long time, I was with my family for Easter Sunday. My sister-in-law lost both of her parents last year and so I felt the need to be with them and we had a lovely time together.

Our after school program, Amigos del Rey (Friends of the King) is up and running! We are receiving at this time only 10 kids per day, four days per week. We hope to have all 40 of them every day soon! Online school is very difficult here for the kids for many reasons. For these first two weeks, our focus was on our emotions and the importance of communicating how we feel using our words. Also, it was a time for the kids to share how they have been for the past year! (We had a lot of catching up to do)!

Starting the day with a healthy meal always!

Sports is a favorite of all!

I will be out of commission for a few months as I will have a total knee replacement on April 21st. (Huge answer to prayer, have been waiting for this for a very long time)! I am currently covering all of my areas, and preparing for this! Lots to do!

Thanks so much for taking time to read this update and praying for me and the children here at CC Pedregales. I appreciate it and continue to press on until the Lord returns!


  1. For my upcoming knee replacement on April 21st. 
  2. For the property below us that we desire to purchase in order to have a fire escape for the children from the classrooms. (This is a requirement from the city and needed if we want to start a school here). 
  3. For the construction of a new multipurpose room. (We will tear down the existing building. This will help with the retaining wall which is moving). We are stepping out in faith without much funding, but trusting the Lord to provide.
