~Our last time to buy Colombian flowers for awhile~

~My friend Marisol and I wanted to go the flower market one more time before I leave for Argentina. It was a beautiful day and I got lots of beautiful FALL-ISH flowers for super cheap. =) We had a special time reminiscing and shedding a tear or two in saying goodbye. =(
[Notice...I put my bag over my shoulder now and not on my stroller where it was when it got stolen. =( ]~
~I got 3 different kinds of mums.  Here are 2 of them together in an arrangement.~
~I Love these kind of flowers...too cute.~
~Some cat tails and some other kind of feathery leafy plant.~
~Marisol bought me the tall yellow flowers...called "Rabbits foot" I believe.  (Last time...She bought me the Billy Buttons which are drying nicely!).~
~A Closer look at the "Rabbits foot" flowers~
~I found fun little pumpkins there too.~
~For $1.50 I bought one more stem of orchids to enjoy in my aqua vase that I love and will miss. =)~
~Some fun sunflowers. ($1.50 for these too.=)~
~The other mums and some green mum-ish looking flowers...not sure if they are or not.  I put these in the kids bathroom since there is orange and lime green in their shower curtain.~
~I picked up this bunch of eucalyptus for 50 cents!  I wasn't sure what I was going to do with it, but it smelled good and reminded me of the US.  (I rarely see this kind...for they normally have a different kind of eucalyptus here.)  When I got home I decided I wanted to make a fall wreath with it.  So I made this wreath...without a form, and without wire...but the Lord helped me and I had fun. =)  This mirror and wreath are on my side of our bed. [You can see Phillip's bedside table and flowers in the mirror behind the wreath.]  Our bedroom looks all fun and fall-ish and will help my heart as I pack for Argentina in the next few days. 
How we are going to miss Colombia.  Our home and our things, the beautiful flowers, but most of all the beautiful Colombian people whom we call our DEAR friends/family!!  Will you please pray  for:
Bro. Jimmy and Sis. Farly, and the church here in Bogota,
Bro. Rigoberto and Sis. Ilce and the church in Cartagena,
and Bro. Alberto and Sis. Alba and the church in Medellin?! Thank you!!!~

Oh Heather, you are in my thoughts and prayers. I can't imagine all the transitions in your life and yet you take them with such courage and grace. I know your heart is sad and know that even in the Lord's will one still has all the human emotions. I will be praying for special strength and grace in your next few weeks. Love, Carla

We had a PRECIOUS time praying for your family around the altar at CNC last night! Our dear director, Bro. Becker's prayer was precious! Pastor preached a challenging message from the passage where Barnabas and Paul were "SET Apart by the Holy Spirit" to go as missionaries, and they laid hands on them and PRAYED and fasted! You weren't there in person, to lay hands on, but please know that we are all behind you in this endeavor! Our prayers as well as our tears are with EACH and everyone one of you, from Phillip, clear down to sweet Mary! The ways in which the Lord led Bro Eisenhart to teach us how to pray for you all were incredible. It was like it was HIM... such insight! KEEP ENCOURAGED! How I love you! Loved all of your beautiful flowers on this post!
With misty eyes for goodbye's once again,
Laura

Kira, Thank you for your concern and prayers. In case you didn't see it, I answered your question in my post above. Here's what I wrote. =)
We are moving to Argentina on October 19th, Lord willing, but have tickets to return to Colombia in March to be here for some classes in the churches, and to work on some important Colombian papers. We plan on still making trips into Colombia and working with the churches here for years to come!

I am sure it helps your Colombian Friends to know that you are just on loan to Argentina. Looking forward to hearing and seeing via e-mail the new friends you will make and how God works in your behalf in that new country. Praying for you as you pack, plan and pray for this endeavor. The flowers are lovely. Love, Moma
