Her little white dress was COVERED in grease!
But, thanks to Sis. Farly, I learned a very valuable laundry tip that I want to share with you! If you need to degrease something sprinkle some salt on your piece of clothing (especially if it is silky like Mary's dress) and then use lighter fluid to rub out the Yucky grease stain. Her dress is now white again! Yea! =)~
Please pray that God will help these young people. Bro. Jimmy and Sis. Farly have invested HOURS, days, months, YEARS trying to touch these lives for Jesus!~
Hershey kisses are a TREAT here, so I splurged and got some for the table.~
(Pastor Jimmy and family had another invitation, so came later.)~
Since we are leaving this week for our trip to visit our 2 other churches, we didn't buy Phillip a Father's day gift. We'll probably get him something on our trip. =)
The 4 Dads after Jimmy got there. (John had already had to leave.)
L to R: Edgar, Jimmy's father, Jimmy, and Phillip.~
So.....These last few days have been BUSY in our SCHOOL-House! Mommy, Kimberly, and Sarah have let other things go in life to help Kimberly finish 8th grade and Sarah finish 5th grade. Several mornings the girls and I got up EARLY and went downstairs. After having our devotions, we would light a candle, have something hot to drink and wrap up with blankets, (it's always CHILLY here in the mornings and evenings in our concrete house) and eat a quick snack, turn on some pretty piano music, and STUDY away! ~
God helped our girls, and Kimberly FINISHED 8th grade yesterday (Monday) at nearly 5:00 P.M., and Sarah finished 5th grade just 2 hours later! YEA! ~
So, we are excited about seeing our people and visiting the beautiful cities of Medellin and Cartagena, Colombia.
We hate to impose on our pastors and families, but they would not hear to any other plan than that we stay with them. They are already have 5 in each family. Now...here we come with our family of 7 which will make 12 people in their small houses with only ONE bathroom. Of course we will pay for the groceries while we are with them.
PLEASE PRAY for:
~A safe time,
~That God will help things go smoothly and BLESS our hosts,
~And that God will make our trip a blessing for Him! Thank you!
