Today we arrived to work on our house around 9:00, and by NOON, I was so TIRED that I was falling apart. I told Phillip, you'd better PRAY for me, for I don't think I can go on.
He had SPECIAL prayer for me, and wouldn't you know, God sent my friend Marisol shortly thereafter to LIFT my load!!! She cleaned my kitchen until it shined and then helped me clean our 2 bathrooms too. I cried while telling her HOW MUCH her coming meant to me, for I couldn't have made it without her today. The Lord gave me a special touch and we got LOTS done!. Here's some pics to enjoy!
~Marisol cleaning my kitchen.~
Pastor Jimmy and Sis. Farly are being a HUGE blessing as well!! Sis. Farly was at home making our supper for tonight and Pastor Jimmy was getting a hot water heater hooked up in their house so that we'd have hot water to shower with when we got to their home tonight!! =) (This morning Phillip, Kimberly, and Sarah BRAVED C.O.L.D. showers!!) ~
Here's Marisol and I attacking the kid's bathroom. =) Jesus helped us to get lots done.~
Elijah fell asleep first. Phillip laid him down to rest, and later I came in the room, and this is how he was sleeping. DO YOU THINK HE GOT CONCERNED AND DECIDED TO PRAY THAT WE'D GET EVERYTHING DONE???!! ;-) ~
~So tomorrow afternoon (Wednesday) a truck is to come to our house to take EVERYTHING out of our house. We have to have EVERYTHING OUT OF OUR HOUSE by Wednesday evening, for the carpet cleaners are coming first thing THURSDAY morning to clean our carpets!
PLEASE PRAY that we can get it all done really FAST tomorrow!
I tell you what, y'all's prayers are what is keeping us going. Just when we feel we can't go ANYMORE!!!...someone must start touching Heaven for us, and we get more strength to keep going! THANK YOU. PLEASE Don't stop praying!!! =)
I want to get it all DONE, so we can rest for a few days before the very BUSY, STRESSFUL day of flying home.
~On Thursday night, Pastor Jimmy and Sis. Farly and the church here in Bogota have a goodbye service/evening planned for us. I have a feeling that I'd better take 3 boxes of Kleenexs with me for that night, for I'm sure I'll cry LOTS of tears during that service! =( I've already cried with 3 of my neighbors who were crying while telling us goodbye...how much MORE with those of our church whom we've known and LOVED for nearly 6 years now.
Our DEAR Colombian people have a place in our hearts that is Reserved for only THEM! =)
