Gretchen, who has been wonderful, will be returning to Louisiana permanently in August so she is preparing Oscar to fill her position. He will be in charge of construction and maintenance and this is another step in the transition.

The teams have made such a difference. The baby dorm upstairs & downstairs; bathrooms in Estelitas; painting & installation of windows in Las Cometas; work in Alex’s dorm & Josue’s apartment.


“And I say unto you, ask, and it shall be given to you; seek, and you shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you” Luke 11:9.

You and I should ask God when we are in need. I am always amazed at regardless of how much I know I still sometimes resort to my own solution to problems. There are needs everyday and yet I oftentimes try to come up with a solution before I go to God in prayer. I know when my children at Casa need shoes but having them come to me and say “Papi, I need a new pair of shoes” thrills me as they believe I will answer their request. That is what our Father wants of us.

God wants us to seek what is productive in life. Sadly every direction I look I see people who are wasting their lives on things that will never produce what they want or need. You and I will give an account to God of what we have done for Him as we walked through this life.

Finally God desires that we knock on the doors of opportunity. We have not because we ask not! The entire world is before us and we settle for so little. There is a reason many people accomplish next to nothing. They never knock on the opportunity door. They cannot see what is right before them and that is the opportunity to make a difference. My heart aches for people I know who could have done great things for God but never knocked on that door of opportunity.
