While we were in Mexico, we had some great worship songs. But what we didn’t count on is how difficult it might be to translate some of them or to teach some of them.

I heard one of the teachers singing Alabare and was so excited. I knew the chorus from singing it when I was in Peru with the Kings, CC, David and Janet M.

So, I asked them to sing it and I tried to sing along. I really like this song and resolved to try to learn it much better. It really helped to have a video AND to know what the words mean.

The chorus is really catchy and pretty easy to remember.
Alabaré Alabaré
Alabaré Alabaré
Alabaré a mi Señor x2

(Praise, Praise, Praise, Praise, Praise the Lord)

Juan vio el numero
De los redimidos
Y todos alababan
Al Señor
Unos Cantaban
Otros Oraban
Y todos alababan
Al Señor

(John saw the number of the redeemed
And all praised the Lord
Some sang, others prayed and all praised the Lord)

[chorus]

Todos Unidos
Alegres Cantamos
Glorias Y alabanzas
Al Señor
Gloria al Padre
Gloria al Hijo
Y Gloria al Espiritu de Amor
[chorus]

(All united
Singing Joy
Glory and Praises
to the Lord
Glory to the Father
Glory to the Son
And Glory to the Spirit of Love)

Oh and if you want more songs – we had such fun with
Yo Tengo Gozo (I’ve got the Joy) and going back and forth with English and Spanish of Jesus Loves Me

Three Things: Praise, Prayer and Joy!

1) We praise God that the numbers of children under the age of 5 has been drastically reduced.  “A new UNICEF report shows …that the  number of children under the age of 5 dying globally fell from nearly 12 million in 1990 to an estimated 6.9 million in 2011.”

This is good news, but there is still much to be done. If you want to continue to impact this number, a good way is to get involved with Compassion’s Child Survival Program.http://www.compassion.com/help-babies.htm – For $20 a month, you help provide babies with nutrition and medical care and give mothers and fathers hope.

2) Pray for Russia. More specifically, pray for the Chukchi people who live in Chukotka, in the Far Eastern Federal District. A number of them have come to Christ through Inuit missionaries, as well as other Russian and American missionaries. Pray that the Chukchi who do believe in Christ would be strong in their faith and continue to reach out to friends and relatives in His name. http://www.operationworld.org/today2

3) Joy!  This weekend, I joined the church that I’ve been attending the last couple of years. It was so awesome to go up to the front and then be welcomed in by so many great people!
