~This, that, and the other!~

My friend who has things for sale on ebay left me this comment.
"Heather, I am posting approx. 25 more skirts today.. brands like Ann Taylor, Banana Republic, Tommy, DKNY and the list goes on! I just wanted to let you know in case anyone else is looking. I will be posting continuously for the next month or so.. so if there's something you or friends are looking for and can't find... check back!! =)"
(See post below "Ladies, looking for some nice new clothes..." for the ebay link.)

IF YOU HEARD ON THE NEWS THAT COLOMBIA HAD AN EARTHQUAKE WE DID! YESTERDAY PHILLIP HAD TO RUN AND DO SOME LAST MINUTE ERRANDS AND THE KIDS AND I WERE AT HOME WORKING. I WAS SITTING AT MY SEWING MACHINE IN OUR DINNING ROOM FINISHING SOME MENDING BEFORE I PACK THOSE CLOTHES FOR THE USA! ALL OF THE SUDDEN, THE HEAVILY LADEN BOOK SHELVES BEHIND ME STARTED SHAKING BACK AND FORTH. THE HUGE CHINA CABINET TOO. THE MIRROR ON THE WALL SWUNG BACK AND FORTH AND THE REFRIGERATOR RATTLED AROUND AND THE THINGS IN IT. OUR HOUSE STARTED SHAKING BACK AND FORTH TO THE RIGHT AND LEFT LIKE A PENDILUM. (LIKE A TOY THAT ELIJAH WOULD SWING BACK AND FORTH IN HIS HAND!) LITERALLY! IT WAS VERY FRIGHTENING! (YOU SEE WE LIVE ON THE 3RD FLOOR. OUR BUILDING IS NEW AND IS CONNECTED TO OTHER BUILDINGS ON THE LEFT, BUT IS NOT ON THE RIGHT. SO OUR BUILDING REALLY SWAYED WITH THAT EARTHQUAKE! IT WAS A 5.4 ON THE RICTOR SCALE! I WASN'T SURE IF WE WERE GOING DOWN (AS IN OUR BUILDING COLLASPING), IF WE WERE GOING UP (AS IN TO HEAVEN), OR WHAT WAS GOING TO HAPPEN! =D
THANK GOD FOR HIS PROTECTION, AND THAT NO ONE WAS HURT!

~At prayer meeting the other night, Kimberly was asked to get up front and read a Scripture before the offering. She did a good job.~~On Friday, I met my friend Marisol. She Elijah, and baby and I had a nice visit. It was hard saying goodbye to another one of our dear Colombian friends!~
~I forgot to get a picture of us sitting down at our table. So, here we are leaving the restaurant. She gave me some beautiful flowers. I gave her a loaf of my french bread and a jar of jam. She LOVES my french bread.~
~On Sunday, Phillip preached and the Lord moved on hearts and there were 6 people who came forward to pray at the altar. (The altar is a new thing here in Colombia, so we were glad that they felt free to come and pray.)

~I made 74 oatmeal raisin cookies to pass out to our church people. These are their favorite cookie that I make.~
~Kimberly with several of her Colombian friends.~
~Our dear friends Edgar and Joanna had us over for a Delicious Sunday dinner! Here I am with my salad plate "resting" on top of our baby girl!~
~I was sooo glad for the invitation, so I didn't have to cook Sunday dinner. (On Saturday, I had made a call on a Lady, and what I thought would be a "short visit" turned into a 2 1/2 hour visit. She told me that the Lord had sent me to visit her, and God gave us a nice time together. When I got home at 7:00 PM on Saturday night, I still had to mix up 2 batches of oatmeal raisin cookies and bake them to pass out at church on Sunday. So, I was VERY THANKFUL that I didn't have to cook Sunday dinner!) We had a lovely afternoon with Edgar and Joanna!~
~Some of the baby gifts that we have received for our precious baby girl. On the right are 2 adorable dresses that we have purchased for her. We are so excited that it won't be too many more days and we will get to hold her in arms.~

So good to hear that you are in the States and waiting for your bundle of joy. We haven't written each other for quite a while, but I do greatly enjoy your wonderful blog....we are now starting into our 5th year in Peru w/out furlough, due to the long adoption process. Write anytime, and OH, are you receiving my newsletters?
chau for now, Michele Fling
