~Day 23 of...my 30 days Thanks!~
I'm VERY THANKFUL for our U.S.A. House that Jesus gave to us for $14.200!!! (Pic taken in 2010.)
It is a work in progress, but we love it, and already have lots of wonderful memories in it. A house quickly becomes a HOME...when Love is added! :-) ~
We are having a good time with our fellow missionaries the Flings. Talking together, praying together, walking and taking buses together, laughing together, ministering together, cooking together, and eating together. :-)
Here's a ton of photos!! :-)
Before they came I made some goodies.
~Mary and I made a "Tea party" for us girls the day before the Flings came.~
~I made cinnamon rolls for our first breakfast.~
~I canned several jars of salsa!~
"Please pray...Mrs. "CLEAN," I mean FLING is coming to my house! :-)
I'm not a clean freak.
I like things clean and organized, but I don't stress about dusting, sweeping and moping each day!
Phillip has some fun glasses with little tiny HOLES poked into the plastic!
So, when Michele arrived, I gave her these glasses with little tiny HOLES, and told her that is she WORE THESE GLASSES while she was here, my house would always appear CLEAN! :-)
~Ready for our first brunch together.~
Michele jumped up and all of a sudden she started getting bit!!
We soon discovered that large black ants were up inside her skirt. :-(
So we wrapped her in a blanket, took off her skirt, and helped her get them off of her slip.~
and I made Colombian hamburger.
It all was yummy!~
Phillip gave a devotional and explained Why Thanksgiving was started, admonished us all to be in a continual attitude of Thanksgiving to God...and How we celebrate it today as Christians. Then Phillip asked each one of us to Thank the Lord for something.
It was a very special afternoon together....
"Everything I am, God made me" (Victory Trio)
"Thank you, God, for saving my soul"
"Jesus, we just want to Thank you",
And then Kimberly played a verse and chorus of "Great is Thy Faithfulness",
And then all of us (including the young people) sang the chorus together.~
We got home at 5:15 from the Chinese church and then got ready and got on the bus to go to Fernando and Mariela's house for a Sunday night service. We took the bus to the train station and then when we went to talk to the person at the train station to go to Tortuguitas (out in the country...where Fernando lives), they said that there had been a wreck and the train wouldn't be going there that night. So, we had to call Fernando and his family and tell them we couldn't come for a service. :-(
Please pray for Michele, she is having some physical issues.
