As this pandemic continues on and on – Abuela Carolina (that’s me!) — is getting in touch with students who are taking our LOGOI Bible courses but have not yet completed their studies. For those who finished, I am asking for more details so I can share with you. What treats to receive their stories of God… Read More»
I don’t think it actually knows it’s “mine,” but it’s drinking my sugar water outside my window so I have claimed ownership.
It’s very interesting to know that in God’s timing, LOGOI’s ministry overseas has been wonderfully positioned to face this awful virus: Our LOGOI/FLET courses have been online for years — nothing new for us here. Our online courses can be taken individually, in small groups, or in classroom settings. So when the virus hit, we… Read More»
I was deep in a conversation with a close friend who, politically, sits on the opposite side of the aisle from me. I know, it’s disturbing. We were discussing our thoughts on the best way to “re-open” the country and I was astounded at how he could be so terribly wrong about… well, everything.
We were both digging in our heels when I recalled the Asimov quote above and used it with great aplomb.
“Love is a lot like a toothache,” George Burns said. “It doesn’t show up on X-rays, but you know it’s there.” It is better to begin the introduction of Beatriz (Betty) Valdés with a light-hearted quote than one about trying to manage the pain of a broken heart.

Among the many health benefits of eating salmon are its high B vitamins (which help your brain and nervous system), it’s a great source of protein (protecting bone health) and can even help in lowering the risk of heart disease. Another benefit: it tastes great! Chile is… Read More»
Not shaking hands, hugging friends, or sitting in crowded seats at a ballgame or event, seems terrible. Then there is wearing facial masks. “Never in my wildest dreams,” the funny email my mother sent said, “did I imagine I’d go up to a bank teller with a mask on asking for money.”
Here at LOGOI we’re facing a very peculiar reality. In the month of March, for example, our online Bible resource center was accessed a record 740,000 times by our extended Spanish-speaking family of pastors and national missionaries.
With “stay-at-home” orders for people around world, the ministry of LOGOI has experienced a wonderful increase in users across the Spanish speaking world. In the month of March, for example, LOGOI had over 739,000 visitors to our online Bible resource center. As LOGOI’s focus is to “Equip God’s people to do His work and build up… Read More»
There is a beautiful Easter story that goes along with this. It begins, of course, with Lettie Burd Cowman.
Growing up, one of my musical heroes was a Gospel singer named Dave Boyer. He was a big band singer and crooner working the Jersey Shore under the name Joey Stevens.

He lost everything, including his career and marriage.
