We have been asked about our Tzitzits over and over. One boy said he wanted some for himself. We read from scripture why we wear them and what they mean (Numbers 15:37-40) and read the commandments from Exodus 20 and Deuteronomy 5-6. We did the same with every boy and girl that came to our door asking for them, at this time 10 have come.

One of the boys just came to show me his bible. This translation uses the Name of our Creator as Yave, has the whole apocrypha books and many footnotes. They say they know "Jesus" but are taught other commandments. 

As we read through them Gustavo heard truth for the first time in his own bible. He wears the Tzitzits daily and wants to know more. HalleluYAH! He told me that Dona Berta the lady that teaches Catholicism here tells him not to hear from foreigners and that Sunday is the holy day. He also says that she is mean towards others. I hope the fear and lies do not hinder him from coming.
Christopher, Andres, and Gustavo
Well he has shown that he is very zealous too. He told me that one Sunday he was walking by the church and this lady told him to come and confess with the priest and he said, no thanks. He also can not see in scripture the processions walking with the crosses and do not like all that worship of virgins. He also said that his dad is critical of the catholic church calling them ignorant in many of the traditions and practices while watching mass on TV and attending church. Pray for Gustavo and his family. Shalom!!!

Shalom! We have a new blog!

We have started a new Costa Rican blog! The reason for starting one is because my mom and I wanted to be able to share with you what is going on here, as well as putting it permanent, not just on Facebook or by e-mail.

You may be wondering about our name of the blog. It is a combination of Hebrew and Spanish. The 1st word, L'chaim, is Hebrew. It means, "to life". It is a blessing that the Jews in Israel still do today.

The 2nd and 3rd words are in Spanish. Pura Vida means, "Pure Life". It is a very popular saying here in Costa Rica, and they say it every time they meet someone. 

We pray that this blog can be full of YHVH's pure and perfect light and that you may be blessed by everything you read. Blessings!
