I forgot to tell y'all that in the airport, at 2 different gates they called for our family like this: "The Dickinson group" or "the Dickinson party" please come to the desk, or "The Dickinson party can begin loading." I told Phillip, "We are no longer a "family" now we are a "group or party!" Hee! Hee! :-)

We spent our New's year's eve here in Colombia. We had a church service at 5:00 P.M. in which I played the piano, Sarah sang, Kimberly played her violin, and Phillip preached. We all felt God's sweet presence as we sang choruses like: He'll come walking on the Water (Victory Trio), Come Holy Spirit we Need Thee, and It will be worth it all when we see Jesus! Jesus helped Phillip as he preached on Loving God more this new year!
Then we came back to Pastor Jimmy and Sis. Farly's house and enjoyed a yummy supper, and a nice visit with Pastor Jimmy and Sis. Farly and their whole family. I plan to post those pics soon.
But, first, I wanted to post pics of our December in the U.S.A. We thought that we would be in S. America Before December, but God saw fit to let us ENJOY 24 days of December in our U.S.A. home! Here are the pics!
This was the tablescape I used for our breakfast with them.~
That evening we had a nice Global Holiness Missions missionary get-together at a Mexican restaurant. It was a good time of fellowship!
~Phillip and I leaving for the Missionary time.~
It was a nice evening with yummy Mexican food and lots of nice Missionary fellowship. ~
I made yummy Cappuccino punch!~
~Grammy was a big help making my pepperoni rolls for me. And Sis. Becker and Beth A. kept our dishes washed up! What dear ladies!~
~Please keep Phillip in your prayers. Pastor Jimmy asked him to preach every service while we are here in Colombia...so he is spending a lot of his days in prayer and Bible study for the services.
~He leaves tomorrow to spend the weekend visiting our church in Medellin and preaching there.
~Please pray for the services and for protection for him there and for the kids and I here.
~Also please pray for an unspoken request.
Thank you bunches for your prayers! We are enjoying being with our Dear Colombian people!
