|| Mi Familia || Some people may look at us and assume we have no clue what going through hell looks like. But if you only knew the details of how much the enemy targeted our family and rocked us practically to death. We were ripped up as a family and once we were seperated, he tore us up as individuals. But one by one God met us in our pit where our minds were gone and our hearts were hard. He took us out and brought us back to Him and each other. Only God knows how much my family means to mean. I am so grateful for His forgiveness, mercy and grace.
(Full vid on IGTV) As we the team for the Crossroads drama are preparing for Resurrection Sunday and I get ready to write new spoken words, I can't help but be so grateful for all God has brought me out of, brought me through and brought me into. I was messed up in my mind and my heart and my God saw it fit to rescue me, shape me, and use me. I've been blessed more than I deserve and all I really want to do is give honor where honor is due. How could I ever look back? How??? I pray I never do. I choose always work on allowing my God to mold me into the Living Proof of the Truth that He's called me to be. #MoreVidsToCome #LivingProofOfTheTruth #Testimony #Grateful
|| TB || There was no cell phone reception and no internet. I believe the Lord was so intentional on my last visit with her. I went with my mom @patriciaguerra994 to Oregon, I believe it was feb of 2015. I went for two reasons only. To visit my great grandma in her last days and to make sure that she was going to save me a seat at that great feast when I see her again. She had a really good long life but one thing we wanted to be sure of was that she was going to have an even better one in heaven. She accepted our Savior into her heart that day. I'll never forget it. It was a simple prayer. And all she had to do was choose to believe. And she did. It was kind of hard take in that that visit would be the last time I heard her voice but what a peace there was in my heart. Till we meet again ❤
My boy! Working on being a good example of what the love of Christ should look like when I'm with him. I'm a tough mom but his personality alone puts me on check. I stay learning and growing the love language he knows and understands so that he can feel love from me. It's a sacrifice to step out of ourselves for others, but it starts in the home. ❤ (Tshirt from @mayjahleaguehawaii)
I'm just one introvert who's tried to be a better example to this introvert in being willing to be extrovert for the Lord! Lol!! But foreals, I'm so proud to see how far she's come. From our Maili lifegroup days, where she was too nervous to give someone a flyer.. to now her flying out tomorrow to Amsterdam to spread the Love of Christ!! Girl!!!! What a change! I pray you are not only extrovert out there but that you're EXTRA-vert ahaha! Step out in that anointing Cas! Praying for you all!!!
|| It feels good to refill || ▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎▪︎ There was no social media back in the day, so of course it is easy now to retreat to media style evangelism. However, flyers weren't always around either. People used the word of their testimony! What a privilege we have now a days to have resources like social media and flyers, not as our only resource of reaching out but to advance it. But each style are all very effective individually as well. We never want to count any of them out. I personally love one on one lifestyle evangelism. It is so personal. What is your favorite? :) #VOHIGANG #VOHICHURCH #VOHIMedia #Flyers #Media #Evangelism #Hawaii #Oahu #ALOHA

"..We are self-determining beings, free to choose among alternatives and therefore responsible for directing our life and shaping our destiny." -Theory and Practice of Group Counseling A simple truth. Our Creator gave us free will. What we choose to do with it is completely up to us. However, He also sent us the Holy Spirit; not to force us in what to do but to guide us. So in the moment of decision making, remember, His word says that "a man can plan his way but the Lord directs his steps." (Proverbs 16:9) Try not to let the words "we are responsible for directing... and shaping our destiny" become your only source of decision making. We need His guidance and I'm forever grateful for the gift of the Holy Spirit ❤🌺 #OfCourseIChoseThisPic lol ;) #SomeTruth #MelissaMellodyMariscal #PeepTheKicks 😍 #truth #ALOHA
A couple of targets on the top of my prayer list. (Big bro and his wifey) I choose to believe that as I follow Gods will over my life out here, He will take care of my family out there. I love you both with all my heart and I will always battle for you with no hesitation!!! @poetic_mind562 @that_foo_nova #Family ❤

I never knew anyone who can make 35 look as handsome as you! Mr. Mariscal, you drive me crazy! In a bad way and in a good way lol 😂 The closer we become the easier it is to get on each others nerves but still love eachother so much that we don't want to be apart. I use to look at other relationships and say #goals but I love the uniqueness of ours. God is shaping us into the couple he wants us to be. Today, I thank God He gave you another year of life because that means another year I get to have you in mine. #HappyBirthdayToYou!
Last night I had the privilege to team up with brother Alex Campos and shared with the G.A.N.G. the kind of things that can keep someone from running with the vision (p.s proud of my son who put his heart into being the photographer for the night!) ▪︎ ▪︎ ▪︎ ▪︎ ▪︎ || 3 THINGS THE ENEMY WILL KEEP YOU FROM RUNNING WITH THE VISION || Distraction - What cut you off?

My grandpa (on the far right) was a first generation Christian in the family and at a very young age was the first to deticate his talents to the Lord. I'm so blessed to see that him and his brothers are still remembered through their worship. That's why I'm constantly praying for my WHOLE family! What our grandparents passed on needs to continue to be passed on. Not the spanish music itself but the love and desire to utilize the gifts that are in our DNA for the purpose of spreading Gods love ❤ ⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️ "The Alvarado Brothers, was a trio of string Christian music, whose musical career spanned three decades. It was conformed by the brothers Román, Rosario and Juan Alvarado. In a certain sense, stringed music, with the special use of the guitar, opened the way for Latin American Pentecostals to meet their faith with their own culture. The guitar had great influence on music, which extended to the liturgy and Pentecostal theology... Upon entering adolescence, the Alvarado children took the guitar and soon became experts in their craft. Román, the older brother, decided from the beginning to dedicate his talent to the Lord..."
