*Swimming lessons for both boys.....they did GREAT!! My friend Lori taught them- she was wonderful!! Notice anything missing from T's picture....YES our first lost tooth!! Tooth fairy came and gave him a dollar....he is proud- I will post a story soon about this!!
A couple of weeks ago I paid for my meal and then the car behind me's meal too.... in the drive through at KFC. I just felt led to do that- even if she had a much nicer car than mine.....who knows maybe she was borrowing it?? That made me have a wonderful feeling-to be able to bless some one..... and was all for the Glory and Honor of God! When we were shopping in Peru at the Indian Market, the man here in the picture asked if I was a Christian....I replied "well yes, why do you ask?" He responded and said: because you can see it in you face....your smile and eyes- you have what most people here don't have!" He was also a christian. I gave him a hug because that just made my day. Here I was in another country to let my light shine for the Lord and it showed!!
But I need to carry it on over here now that I am home! Each and everyday do a good deed- just for the Glory and Honor of HIM not for my Glory....but in return I will be blessed!! You never know your worst day may be someones BEST!!
I also bought this purse and Shaw for my two nieces from this lady in a village we visited on Sunday- what a blessing to get to see the hands that made such a pretty thing!!
I love to shop so when God calls me to shop.....I will shine for him!!! I just wish he called me to shop more often!! ha!
Be Blessed today and show some one that you care!!

As we stood and waited, I heard the story of the young man who was to be baptised. He was a translator for a large group. The prior day he was saved and some one in that group lead him to a relationship with Jesus Christ. That was awesome! Here he was hired to help translate about some one he had never heard about- only to find he needed him himself.

On this particular day....I was walking with my translator and another Peruvian woman. We stopped and asked random people if we could pray with them- and what needs we could pray for them?
I saw theses workers.....working very hard replacing bricks in the sidewalk. And I really hated to bother them, and take them away from their job.....but I really felt led to speak with one. As I knelt down and tapped him on the shoulder and my translator spoke in Spanish for me. I asked him "Excuse me.....I am Mollie- from United States." At that time he looked at us puzzled and then pointed to his mouth and ears.
He then spoke with a muted voice to which we only understood that he was deaf and mute. My translator looked at me and said "he is dumb and can't speak." I was determined to let him know about my Jesus. So with the little sign language I know- I told him my name and that I loved Jesus.
He was SUPER excited that I knew sign language and could communicate with him. I gave him the time of day- and did not ignore him as if he were "dumb" I then told him I would pray for him and that Jesus loves him. He responded to me and said "yes- I pray to God and I love him too!!"
I then look at my Spanish translator and said "God knows no boundaries.....he is a God of all languages!" My translator was FLOORED!! He said " I was going to walk off- you did not need me...but I could not because that was one of the greatest things I have ever seen!"
Each day while in Peru, God showed me he is a BIG GOD and can do mighty things- and we don't ever need to underestimate his POWER!!
