Today's Preachers, Tomorrow Leaders

Saturday Bible Study, now the Lord used an upcoming Preacher in a Spirit filled matter, to administer to the congregation. What God allowed, us to view and hear is conformation of this ...
Romans 12:2 (NCV) - Do not be shaped by this world; instead be changed within by a new way of thinking. Then you will be able to decide what God wants for you; you will know what is good and pleasing to him and what is perfect.
Oh yes, for God's Glory (ALWAYS) the young Preacher was our Diamond son #4 - Elias Jacob ... 
Care to join us in the continual praying for tomorrow's leaders, which are today's youth?

Happy Birthday Elias

On this day, 22 years ago, the Lord blessed my GEM & I with our last bundle of joy Elias Jacob. While my GEM (hubby) was repairing my laptop; because it was acting up, all that I could think about was the day when the doctor told us this ... "It's a Boy". #ThankYouJesus, Before this baby boy entered our life's, my Dominican Danish & I constantly asked the Lord what should we name him ... When we least expected God told my husband Jacob and then He (God) told me Elias, so we came to the conclusion that this future leader would be known as Elias Jacob. If you look up the name Elias, it means The Lord is my God ... #HaLLeLuJaH,

Elias's nickname at home is the Professor; because he's constantly looking for new ways to come to the aid of our family. In my heart and mind, Elias Jacob is a continual reminder of his Papi (my Love Boat). When our 4 Diamond sons return home from school (college) they all have a question to ask their father and me. What makes me laugh is that Elias first asks for his blessing (that's a Hispanic tradition) and then shares a few long and deep hugs and in between them Elias asks me how was my day ... #Awe,

A lot of people ask me, aren't you upset because you don't have at least one daughter, my reply will always be the same "my husband & I only prayed for sons and our Heavenly Father answered us. Happy Birthday Elias, your love, determination and seriousness is a God given gift; so don't change it ...
