Sonidos Serranos

Sonidos Serranos: Sounds of the Sierras...
Reflecting some of my family's interests: God's wonderful creation (especially mountains and hills!), music, and language...

Psalm 121:1-2 (NASB)

I will lift up my eyes to the mountains;
From where shall my help come?
My help comes from the LORD,
Who made heaven and earth.

Happy 15th Birthday, Jonatán!

How we love this young man! Weve been reminiscing about so many tender and humorous moments of the last fifteen years...

Ten years ago he was ring bearer in our wedding! (But next week hell have to shave his moustache when he starts ninth grade!)

A little over four years ago, God answered his prayers (and those of Marcos, his brother) for a cousin – from Uncle John Mark and Aunt Deborah...

Like his father Esteban before him, hes quite the athlete. His soccer team, the Cavaliers, won their intramural championship – two years in a row!

We appreciate his tender heart and love for his family.

Most of all, we appreciate Jonatáns tender heart toward and love for the Lord Jesus Christ, His Savior.

None of us would ever have imagined that he would be spending most of his 15th birthday (Monday, August 10, 2009) at the hospital, undergoing a biopsy procedure to confirm what the doctors suspect – that the tumor growing in his upper left arm is osteosarcoma.

But Jonatáns desire and that of his family is that God be glorified in everything.

Would you please pray with us...?

We are and will be praying. It seems like not so long ago that I visited you in Lima and he was a baby! Remember? :o) He is such a young man now. Please greet Esther for me.
Love you!
