Back in the States

Greetings again from the Felandos. We have made it back to the USA safe and sound and are temporarily residing at Grampa David and Gramma Josie’s in Fullerton CA. The kids are enjoying fresh homemade tortillas and I and my love Claudia are trying to see where we can find a new home for our family.

We have been so uplifted by the comments and correspondence we have received regarding our decisions to serve in Liberia and to return to the US.

THANK YOU - THANK YOU - THANK YOU - AND RICH BLESSINGS WE PRAY FOR ALL WHO SHARED COMMENTS ON THE LAST POST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

WE GIVE ALL THE GLORY TO GOD OUR FATHER IN HIGHEST HEAVEN FOR ALL HE HAS DONE FOR US AND THROUGH US WHILE WE WERE IN LIBERIA. WE ARE HONORED TO HAVE BEEN THERE AND TO HAVE EXPERIENCED THE FRIENDSHIPS WE MADE. THANK YOU YHWH FOR BLESSING US.

Seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness –

I have been so blessed by God to have had so many opportunities put before my family and I to share the truth of God’s word with so many while we were in Liberia. I would like to share some of our experiences in this and future posts.

Our children have amazed me the most. They are so fearless when talking about God and His ways for us to live. We give credit to God’s holy word and Spirit. We have been using a neat little bible tool/book for the last couple of years called Sword Fighting during our daily family worship and bible study time. It has been such a blessing to us and to some of the visiting families who partook in some of our study times. We have been so blessed by participation feedback of some of the visiting parents and children during our time in God’s word. Thank you all for that.

My son David is one of the bravest children I know. Luc and Ela as well as the rest of them like to share the truth of the bible with adults and children they meet. It reminds me of when Jesus says we have to live a life pleasing to God and have the faith and belief of a child to enter the kingdom of God.

I am going to finish this post later about the teachings my son David shared with a few older men at our container site in Liberia regarding the Sabbath and the Holy days of God. In the meantime know that we are now in California. We can be reached via email or phone if you would like to contact us. davidfelando at hotmail dot com or 714 331 5502.

My better half and love of my life, Clauida, is going to post some things about our challenging 40 hour journey home and the temporary loss of a child.

Be blessed, Love God, and love others.

The most challenging of God's Moral Code for our life, can we obey it !!!
this is incredible insight to God's word and truth for our lives

Does it matter to God what we do throughout the year???
this is even more mind boggling about our traditions vs God's

Godspeed

I cannot even imagine all that is going on in your lives right now, so I pray using my imagination and seeking the Spirit to guide and intercede. know that not a day goes by we have not thought of you and are praying, mightily on your behalf. You are all and each such an inspiration, such a witness and we are anxious to hear more from you. KNow you are loved and treasured. In His love, May He continue to bless you and keep you, may His face shine upon you when you lie down and as you rise up, May you feel Him all around you in very tangible ways and may His Spirit bring you wisdom and comfort as you have brougt to so many, including us.
