La Calma Antes de la Tormenta

El tiempo pasa r√°pido y hoy se cumple un mes desde que llegamos a Okinawa. En las noticias le√≠mos que esta noche viene una tormenta, aunque a trav√©s de la ventana disfrutamos de una hermosa tarde.

When “Blessings” Rain, It Pours!

It is still the rainy season in the Philippines and we have experienced several typhoons over the past months. I know some of you, our dear friends, have checked on us when the typhoons hit our city. Thanks for your prayers and for remembering us! ¬†I feel sorry for those who were flooded, so, thank…

A Mother’s Wish
