"I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me"
Belen saw her first word: papa (daddy). It was a nice experience for us to listen for first time this sweet word. We are very excited and we give thanks to our Lord for her life. God provided medical and dental care for our daughters.
Anita is fine but little tired because she is helping to my sister Lourdes in her healthís crisis. Lourdes is receiving medical treatment for her Payne now. She says: "Thank you so much for your prayers for me and my family. See you soon (or late) in the Heaven, because the death is victory in Christ. I donít have fear; my Lord Jesus is going with me! But, Iím very sad for my kids, pray for them please" Amen..!
