WOW it has been a month since my last post.....whew.....I was going to do a wrap up of all we have done......but NO TIME FOR THAT!!! I will catch you up later in the month!!

I am leaving tomorrow for a mission trip. We will fly out on Friday at 6am in the morning to Lima, Peru and not reach there until 10:00pm!!!

From Saturday the19th until Friday the 25th a team of 5 of us will be ministering to the homeless, HIV positive, children in orphanage and various other bible studies and church services. We will conduct pray walks around the capital of Peru, and pray for all the many people who have not heard the GOOD NEWS!!

I have prayed prepared and I have left it in God's hands. He is my creator and for him I live and breathe each and every day!! I pray that we can be a bright light in their dark world.
My assignments are to share my testimony with a group of women, help in a drama presentation, activity with children at a VBS, and share a bible story with life application. I pray that I be his hands and his feet- that I get out of the way and let him lead me all the way!!

I will miss Father's Day with B and the boys.....this is sad but on the other hand we will be visiting and orphanage that very same day. I was asked by a friend, Jeff -if when we go I would hold this little baby boy that he fell in love with back when he went in March. Jeff said as he held this 6 month old child, his arms were getting tired after a half of an hour and he was wishing someone would come and get him....then he said the Holy Spirit slapped him in the face and reminded him to show God's love to this poor child who has no parents to hold him!! I cannot wait to get my hands on that little boy!!

As I type....I am weeping......I feel as if God has blessed me so much in my life!!! I just wish everyone could have the joy and love I feel from Jesus Christ.

My boys, will be with B and also taking turns between grandparents in Oklahoma and Arkansas. We are so blessed to have such wonderful supportive parents to help us out. I don't know who is more excited the grandparents or the kids!!

Thank you for the prayers, support and Love during this journey in my life- I have NO CLUE what I am doing going to Peru, and leaving my children and husband....but the Lord has many many great things in store for all of us!!
When I do return I will be FULL of stories and cannot wait to share pictures and tell stories!!
See you soon......
