I met the Ortiz family last year when Esther and Alvaro started going to our church. And can I tell y’all how much I love their love story?? Esther is from Canada and met Alvaro on a mission trip in Chili when her church was down there a few years ago. They hit it off, but Esther didn’t speak Spanish and Alvaro didn’t speak English. They communicated via Google Translate for a number of months and got engaged just a few months later!
After meeting Esther last year, I immediately loved her and getting to hang out with her and her two children. Her son is just a few months older than Levi, so it’s been fun getting to see them play together.
We created a small group earlier this year with the Ortiz’s and a few other families at the church, so I have loved getting to hang out with them throughout the year and get to know them on a personal level as well. We are so thankful that Alvaro’s job brought them from Chili to come and live in Dunwoody and even more thankful they found a church home with DBC!
