Click here for the free ebook that includes us in the community of innovators who are changing the world. So blessed is Lalo to be a part of this, but it's all about the kids who will lead their barrio across the digital divide. God bless them all!! Stay tuned...

The Founders

Spent some time with Luis Carlos, Leonel and Roberto. 3 brothers who founded the team of the decade in La Carpio. One of the best barrio soccer teams ever. Luis C. drew the original logo. It was a perfect moment in time. So much passion. Loved every minute of it. Tonight (after Taco Bell) they were presented with special edition commemorative m&m's. Pure sport!!

From The Inside

Got to visit one of my favorite (ex)delinquents today. He turned 18 in January and is spending the 1st three months of his adult life behind bars. He's had very few visitors, so today was special. Spiritually, he's in a good place. Broken and ready for transformation. He's agreed to enter into a rehab facility and thanks to the Giver of all good things, we've found a place for him. If the judge agrees, he could get out in a few weeks and begin his new life. God is at work. Please pray.

Good Grades

Lots of 'em.

Lalo Shares

At Perspectives Costa Rica.


April 4th. Pole vaulting accident (pre Lalo). Serious concussion. I will never forget the date as everyone kept asking "what's the date, what's your name, what day of the week is it?" Interestingly enough, it was a Monday and I watched Phi Slamma Jamma play in the big game from a hospital bed. Ten years later began a life time of chronic neck pain.

There will be times when we come crashing back to down earth. Get back up!! If we're still breathing, God isn't finished with us yet. Pain is part of life, feel it!! If you don't feel any pain, you just might be dead.

28 years later, thriving in the mission field in Costa Rica. 5+ years and counting. God has a plan for all of us!!
