Palabra Viva – Septiembre 2012

Le doy gracias a Dios por permitirme el privilegio de llevar la palabra mes tras mes por este medio a ti lector. En los pasados meses estuvimos compartiendo una reflexión sobre este texto bíblico; Juan 14:6  Jesús le dijo: Yo soy el camino, y la verdad, y la vida; nadie viene al Padre, sino por mí. Comenzamos esta columna, Palabra Viva, con el objetivo que conocieras las verdades bíblicas y que estas te llevan a aceptar, conocer y  amar a Jesús. No a que tengas una vida religiosa, llena de rituales sino que tengas una relación intima con el Salvador de las almas. El propósito de comenzar con este versículo bíblico era presentar a Jesús, pero no era tan solo eso, sino que también era presentarlo como lo que es, como el camino, la verdad y la vida, solo a través de Él, recibimos la salvación para nuestras almas. Con este escrito le pido a Dios Padre que por el nombre de Jesús, que  tu corazón y tu mente sean abiertos al mayor regalo que se le ha querido dar a la raza humana, La Salvación.

Living Word – September 2012

I thank God for giving me the privilege of presenting the Word of God to you. In the past months we were sharing a reflection on the biblical text, John 14:6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. We started this column, Living Word, with the objective to present the biblical truths and that these will get you to accept, know and love Jesus Christ. Not to have a religious life, full of rituals but to have an intimate relationship with the Savior of souls. The purpose of starting with this Bible verse was to present Jesus, but not only that, it was also to present Him for who He is as the way, the truth and the life. Only through Him we can receive the salvation of our souls. With this article I ask God the Father in the name of Jesus that your heart and your mind will be open to the greatest gift given to mankind, Salvation.

The IRS made changes that are affecting filings

IRS Strengthens ITIN Application Requirements; Interim Changes Will Protect the Integrity of the ITIN Process

On June 22, 2012 the IRS made changes that are affecting previous and future filings.  If you have filed for an ITIN before June 22.2012 and it was not processed, you will get a letter to send in proper documents according to the new requirements.

So, what are the new requirements?  All the same documents are still required; the only difference is that they must be certified from the originator, or the original itself. You can no longer submit a notarized copy as allowed in the past. On the bright side you are given ample time to correct this and mail in the proper documents. The bad news, if you do not do it by the date stated on your letter your W7 applications will be denied and you will have to file a new W7.

Ring 10 NY – 2012

Last summer I had the pleasure of attending Ring 10 NY’s inaugural boxing charity event, and was later inspired to write about the organization’s commitment to former boxers in need of assistance.

This past August 18th, Ring 10 NY, held its second annual event, and it did not disappoint. The ambience of Marina Del Rey in Throgs Neck, NY, combined with the abundance of food and drink, made it for an event to remember. The guests and honorees were icing on the proverbial cake. Among those in attendance were 2012’s award recipients, former referee, Joe Santarpia, and former boxer, promoter, manager, and educator, Ed Gersch. I had read Mr. Gersch’s book, A Strong Collected Spirit – A Fighter’s Memoir; an in-depth account of the former boxer’s life, in and out of the ring. I was honored to meet him in person, and tell him how much I enjoyed reading his book. The very coherent and active 92 year-old, thanked me for the praise, and was kind enough to sign my boxing glove.
