Romans 8:28 – “we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.”
For five years God had mended our relationship ever closer.
My heart is full of joy after reading one of my daughters’ messages:
2 of my professors offered to be my reference for an internship.
I got nominated by 2 professors to study business in Morocco for 3 weeks in the Summer. I am going to apply for scholarships to pay for it or I will pay for it. I am telling you so you can be happy. Thank you!
I have also set up the professors who will write me my recommendation letters for my MBA. So I am happy.
I love you mom thank you for helping me with school and stuff.
My the other daughter, Wendy, is the greatest loving wife and mom to my two grandsons.
God is so good to us. God has revealed Himself to us who love Him. Thank you Daddy! Amen.

Ephesians 2:8-10 (ESV) “8 For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, 9 not a result of works, so that no one may boast. 10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.”
“Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God” – Matthew 5:8
On my birthday today we received a powerful message from Pastor Brian Di Giuseppe and testimony from Sabrina, and his team brother Brian Kern and his beautiful wife Cathy from New Community Rising Church. A special birthday song was presented by brother Jamie Jaramillo, along with our volunteers’ usual cheerful service. Witnessing our church members sincerely pay attention to the Word delivered, the happiness is inexpressible. One of our friends mentioned to me before he left, “I want to have your happiness.” “Yes, my friend. You can find the happiness of the Lord. Live a life according to God’s Will. Start NOW. We can’t afford to wait another second.”
These are the most precious gifts I received from all of you from near and far. I love you and may God bless all of you!
2 Corinthians 9:7 (ESV): “Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.”
A beautiful black lady who was living at Skid Row a long time ago – today while I was preaching I saw her passing by with the sweetest smile and dressed well. We exchanged eye contact and smiles to say hi to each other. She is a lead choir singer in a church close by. I was so happy to witness God’s transforming work in her, and in us. After the service, brother Chuy Lira told me the lady left something to our church – 5 twenty dollar bills. $100 (worth more than million)! It’s not about the amount. It’s her love for God.
God touches people’s hearts. More people have been asking to volunteer. We were strangers, now we’re friends. Jesus’ light shines through each one of us; we sweat, we work hard, we laugh louder with a joyful heart.
Philippians 4:4 (ESV): “Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice.”
