While in Chile in January, my wife and I also got to enjoy some of the natural landscape and sights in the vicinity of Viña del Mar. Viña del Mar is about an hour and half drive North of Santiago, Chile. Some of the many enjoyable views we saw are pictured below.

During our trip in January to Chile over twenty teenagers and adults from the Tabernacle of Christ Church in Viña del Mar went to assist with a Summer Bible School in the mountains near Frutillar, Chile. Throughout the whole Summer Bible School I was impressed how enthusiastically our Chilean brothers and sisters in Christ (both young and old) sought to share their relationship with Christ with others. They shared their faith joyfully from the heart. Below are a few pictures from the Summer Bible School.
My main blog: Ramblings generally focuses on telling a story via photography and words. These stories generally center around family, nature, and church although sometimes just about life in general. I also have a blog entitled Fingerprints. I post less frequently in Fingerprints. It serves as a catch all of anything that does not go in my Ramblings blog including memes, quizzes, and reports on books and movies.
The road awaits
The road beckons
Time steps forward
Will we move
In step with time?
Will we step forward
Shaping our time?
Will we take time
To see the present?
Will we explore the past
And understand our heritage?
Will we laugh?
Will we wonder?
Will we touch?
Will we feel?
Time flies on
We have choices
Shall we go fast?
Shall we go slow?
We shall go forward
But we will choose the pace
We may dance with all our heart
Or bathe ourselves in a setting sun
