~Our Sunday~

We had a good Sunday...BUSY...but good! We went to a service this morning and got there a half an hour early. God helped during our service and there were 32 in attendance. I grabbed a couple pics of one of our favorite little babies, and she looks "Gringa" (American). Kimberly LOVES to hold her!












There were several testimonies of how God is helping our people. We sang a trio and Kimberly played an offertory. (You have to understand that we JUST now started taking offerings, and that's b/c our people asked us to take offerings. Before we came, there was a miss. family who took offerings but didn't use the money for what they said they would AND THE GUERRILLA CAME AND KILLED THE WHOLE FAMILY! Sooooo, we have told our people that we are saving up their money and as soon as we can they will pay the rent on the church building, not us. =) We rushed home and we had been home 5 minutes when a young man named Jonathan got to our house.
He wants to attend Hobe Sound soon, but needs to practice his English. (It was A "REAL MINISTRY" for we GBS'ers to help prepare a student to go to HOBE SOUND....JUST KIDDING!!!! =) So we invited him over to chat in English and to eat Sunday dinner with us.

For Sunday dinner I made: Kimberly N's. LA Rice, Baked Chicken, a salad, homemade bread, a fresh fruit juice to drink (Made out of Lulo), and THIS IS WHAT WE HAD FOR DESSERT...Kimberly N.'s LA Lemon Pie. Thanks for the recipe girl!

Jonathan was here until we ran out the door for our evening service. We had a nice visit with him, and he seemed to enjoy himself too. We got on a VERY crowded bus headed to church, and we kept hearing chickens...then we realized that the man in front of us had one in his back pack. Then, a man plopped down beside Phillip holding a live chicken,

and another man got off holding a chicken, then another got off holding 3 bags with chickens. Don't ask me what all the chickens were about, but it was interesting trying to SNEAK AND TAKE pics of them. =)

As we rode into the town where our church is, we saw that part of a mountain had JUST slid...and ambulances were arriving...Hopefully no one was hurt! (We tried to get a pic, but missed it.) We got to church, and Jason and Diana (the parents that just lost their baby) came to our church for the 2nd time today. They attend our morning church, which is an HOUR AWAY FROM OUR EVENING CHURCH...so it was VERY special to have them attend. We had a good service and nearly 30 people there. PRAISE THE LORD! God is helping our little churches, and our people to grow in Him. I so wanted to have Diana and Jason over, but it didn't work out. Please keep praying for them and for the other people of our churches!
~Kimberly & I on the bus...notice our suitcase, keyboard & stand at our feet.~

On the way home, Phillip was holding Noah, who fell asleep...so Sarah moved over in the bus to sit beside Phillip and to help hold the sleeping Noah...and THIS IS WHAT HAPPENED....

THANKS BUNCHES FOR YOUR PRAYERS!

I'm glad that you've seen the light about HS.
Instead of crossing the road, the chickens decided to take a bus.

Hey all you Hobe Sounders...I surely hope you know I'm JUST TEASING! For I had it my plans to attend Hobe S. too, but then when it came time to go to College my parents moved to S. Dakota. Their home was 21 hours from GBS...and 53 from Hobe, I chose GBS for it was much closer to home. And since I was interested in Music, I felt God calling me to GBS...AND I'M SOOO GLAD TO HAVE GONE THERE, FOR THERE IS WHERE I GOT MY WONDERFUL MAN! =) I do think Hobe is a nice school too!

Love, Heather =)

Oooohhh Heather... Every time I read your posts such as this one, it makes me want to jump on the next plane and come pack you up and bring you all back home with me and keep you safe and sound!

I love seeing the pictures of your food. I'm very visual and if I read a recipe, it's hard for me to imagine what it will taste like, but seeing the picture helps. That's why I love "Taste of Home' magazine - pictures of every recipe!

I also love seeing pics and hearing about your ministry there. So many burdens you all carry! I'm so thankful for this blogging - else, I would never have known to pray for you!

There's nothing quite so cute as those South American babies, eh? Do the children there have rosy cheeks like they do in Bolivia? Thank you so very much for sharing from your day! It helps to "bring alive" your ministry for us. Also, glad you're able to minister to those H.S. prospective students!!!!! (teehee) Love ya!! Have a great week!!

What an interesting way to travel! I can say I've never traveled with chickens before!
Your kids are beautiful!

I guess that you're allowed to tease about Hobe Sound since I know you have a few roots here yourself. I agree that the most important thing is where we "got our Man". ha ha ha

Thank you for your writings about your daily happenings, and for the pictures. It helps so much to see what is going on in your lives. Love, Mom/Dad Dickinson

Heather I thought of you as I was fixing up my table yesterday morning. You always put the extra touch to your food photos and make it look most inviting and delicious. You all must write a book of your missionary life someday. You are our modern day Rosalind and Jonathan Goforth :)

Heather;

We'll let the Hobe Sound comment slide this time. :) Do you have roaches there? If not, you may want to prepare the young man for HSBC by introducing him to roaches, lizards and the beautiful ocean. Or you could mug him and prepare him for GBS, it's up to you. :)

Heather,
Please tell your young man that HS is the best school he could EVER attend;-) Hahaha..just teasing! It really is a great school! And everyone is welcomed there! No one looks down on the students from other countries! Sometimes those are the coolest people you will hang around! We had one guy from Columbia there and he became one of my really good friends! Okay, okay...so i think HS is the best but ya know...I'm suppose to think that:-D I spent three years there, met the bestest friends, and my man;-) Hehehe...talk to ya later! Susan still hasn't popped that baby out yet! UGH;-) I'm getting tired of waiting..I can only imagin how she feels!!!!! luv ya lots!!!
P.S. Tell Sarah I said Congradulations:-D
