Here’s another one:
[Edited to add: Except that the journey from that ’97 Mission Team
to the picture above was long – and full of both mountains and valleys!
Lots of valleys... Kind of like life itself!]
I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying:
“Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God.
And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”
Then He who sat on the throne said:
“Behold, I make all things new.”
And He said to me:
“Write, for these words are true and faithful.”
“I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in Me will live even if he dies, and everyone who lives and believes in Me will never die. Do you believe this?”
Hoy celebro la vida, compartiendo pensamientos del Salmo 43:Envía tu luz y tu verdad; que ellas me guíen,que me lleven a tu santo monte,y a tus moradas.Entonces llegaré al altar de Dios,a Dios, mi supremo gozo [lit. la alegría de mi gozo];
y al son de la lira te alabaré, oh Dios, Dios mío.
“Sonidos Serranos” was begun in March 2008 partly for our parents who were all overseas at the time. Since August 2009 and especially in early 2011, the blog became a practical way to communicate updates on our nephew Jona’s battle with cancer and God’s graciously giving him ultimate healing. I’ll still be posting about God’s amazing grace in his life ~ and our lives as well...
As for me:
I’m happily married to John Mark, my best friend. Our greatest joy is knowing Jesus Christ as personal Savior. After years of preparing and waiting, we are excited to be in Uruguay as full-time teachers, sharing the message of salvation in Christ alone in this part of the world.
Our E and DJ are also great sources of joy ~ and wonderful answers to prayer! They have a great heritage: Their grandparents (all of them!) are or have been missionaries. And they continue to be an important reason for this blog.
