Here in Jeremaobo

Well I am so sorry I haven~t shared before now about this journey. We have been going nonstop and I have long lost count of the number of souls we have brought to the Lord. This is an experience I will never forget. I am so humbled. And I love these people. I hope this is something I will get to experience more than once. I have so much to share and should have blogged everyday but I have been tired. The Lord gives me strength so I can share the gospel. I have made new friends, started learning a new language, and grown in my own spiritual walk. This trip wasn~t just about bringing new believers to the gospel but it was for our team. God did mighty things through us and to us. Things ranging from bringing over 100 people to the Lord at an agriculture school of teenagers tonight to strengthening our team as we were stuck on the side of a sand road stuck in a bus up to its frame for over 4 hours. You should have heard the praising in the storm. To God be the glory. Well my pillow is beckoning me. I doƱ~t look forward to telling all the children tomorrow in Jeremaobo bye. Please continue to pray for our team as we continue to witness and begin our travels home.

She did it finally!

Well yesterday my baby rode that bike with no training wheels. I am one proud mama. See video below. My friends on recommended taking the training wheels off and having her scoot along until she gets going then start pedaling. Well it worked really quick. I mean once she got it she took off. Emma had a couple of friends over today. They made shirt shaped Fathers Day cards. Really cute. Well I have so much to do to get ready for Friday.

Time is drawing closer

I can't beleive it. I just looked at my ticker and it is 10 days until departure for Brazil. I am so excited to see what the Lord will do through me. He is so good. I am trying to prepare my heart for what he has in store for me and for them.
Been working again this past weekend. I wish I had some way to iterate to everyone the importance of wearing their seatbelts. We have lost so many lives needlessly this past few weekends where a seatbelt could have made the difference. What does it take for people to realize the fragility of life?
I made some baby cards yesterday. I will take some up to the Bungalow tomorrow to sell. I think they turned out real cute. Enjoy!

A crazy week

Well it has been a crazy week. I started a part time job this past week. I am not sure if I will keep at it. Emma gets out of school next week. We decided not to do summer camp. She will stay with her cousin some and my dad if needed. Not much scrapping lately other than the notepads I made for Emmas sunday school teachers 2 weeks ago. Trying to get together things I need for Brazil. Got me some luggage and a backpack. Now our group needs Polaroid One Step film and reading glasses. For Memorial Day we went to the D Day memorial. What an experience. The sacrifices they made for our countries freedoms. I got some great photographs.
