Is it just me who is crazy for an adventure now that the weather is nice and warm? Wait, I forgot that some of you don't have the blessing (and yes, I really do see it as a blessing!) of living in a four seasons part of the world. There's nothing like the crisp fall air or the change of leaves or the bone chillingness (is that even a word? :P) accompanied with sledding and hot cocoa of winter or the newness and mud of spring or the BBQs and late nights of summer. I LOVE where I live! But even though winter is fun, it gets so monotonous and icky having to shovel snow and bundle up. As I'm writing this, I'm hearing crickets or peepers and robins! Awesomeness fo shizzle!
Bible study was last night again and it was a blessing. My amigos Rudy, Chino, and Leo had the privilege of learning to jump on our family trampoline. My friend Jacquelyn and I showed them how to do flips and butt bounces (don't know any other way to describe them) and then we got the bright idea to teach Chino to jump off our garage's roof onto the trampoline. Great fun! And lots of amazing memories. The study itself was good too. Alot of interaction. The lesson was focused on Christ's death, burial, and resurrection-- the Gospel itself! The guys had alot to say which was great. Many important questions are being asked. I'm so excited to see where the Lord leads this study.
Here's a picture of some of my sister's bible study girls with a couple extra people, my brother Danny and little Jason. I don't go to Katy's study because I'm involved with the Mexican one but the Lord has brought about 10 girls to the study. Such a great ministry opportunity! Praise Him for this. From top left is my brother Danny, Margo, Jacquie, Sarah, Allie, Jenny, Katy, me, and Jason. I love these people so much. God is working in ways we cannot see and it's cool when He gives us a glimpse of what He's doing.
Easter Sunday is tomorrow. Why is it so important? Who cares about a man who died over 2,000 years ago? Why is He so important? What's important is that Jesus died for the world's sins. He didn't deserve to because He is perfect but He did. The most important thing is that the story doesn't end in the grave. He rose from the dead (who does that?) and is going to come again to take His people to Heaven. Please don't wait to be born again, do it tonight! It's the most important decision you will ever make. Confess your sins to the Lord, believe that He is Savior and able to save you and start walking with Him.
Blessings to all of you this wonderful Easter. May God richly bless you all and may you all look to Him for completion. Dios te bendiga este Semana Santa! Cuidate.
