Happy Birthday Mommy!

Well today is my moms  birthday and I'm not home so I want to honour her on my blog!
My mom is absolutely fabulous. She is fun, she is caring, she has a HUGE heart and she loves her family and friends. 

Mom you are an inspiration to me in my walk of faith. Your heart towards the things of God is precious and I honour you for that. I am so proud to be your daughter and to hold such amazing memories in my heart from the amazing 21 years we have spent together. And as we all know that you may have loved nick first, you still love me more.. ha ha ha! Your love is so important to me and I'm so blessed that you were the parent you needed to be through out the years so that now we can walk in such an amazing friendship. Thank you for all your time and patience for my hundred phone calls a day, thanks for your prayer and support in our ministry. You are such a blessing to those around you, may you receive that blessing in return today, and for this next year to come. I love you so much and I'm coming home with Bath and Body Works in tow!
Have a great day mom, Love your baby girl!

Well Here I am!

What a glorious day, Just woke up from a 4 hour nap --- GLORY TO GOD!
Today I woke up with the team, Christina Williams (Pastor here that I'm staying with!) came and met us for the breakfast of campions (Mickey D's) and then I said goodbye to the team and my hubby! Came here for a hot shower and went to Church! 

Grady and Christina Williams Pastor a church here in Orange County caller Water brook Foursquare. It was a fabulous service this morning, the family here were amazing! I felt a little white though... ha ha the worship was a BLAST!  An amazing message of heaven realities and living in who God is and what God has said. It was great. I then went to the Kernel - which is Grandma speak for KFC! I have found another grandma... Christina and Grady care of Christina's mom in their home to today I helped her get to church with another amazing man who attends their church who's ministry is to pic up grandma every sunday! So sweet. Anyway Grandma is amazing... what an woman of God! Got some KFC, headed up to my room and with book and popcorn chicken in lap I feel asleep! Curled in and had a four hour nap! What an amazing start to holidays! Thank you Lord for this week!

The Team is headed back they are making great time to far, people are learning to use the stops they have properly... ha ha, Hit some decent snow already but all is good. We have all been stretched this last week and I want to blog more about the trip later, once my brain starts to function again! Love you all at home, k

Hello from Mexico

Well we are settled in and everything is great! We didn't have internet the first day but 
it is up today! Yesterday was busy with two church services, Jason preached, Ryan lead 
worship and we had the team split and do kids ministry stuff! Everyone did a fabulous 
job. Thrown into a full day of ministry on their first day here was an awesome challenge 
that they all rose too. We are really seeing the team come together, maybe a little bit 
of trouble added to that need to rely and trust in each other. Everyone is out working 
today busy busy, it looks like we get to burn a field of tumble weed tonight.. we are all 
pretty excited! Lots to do and we are having a blast. Joel and Sally are well. Serigo, 
Bernice and Enoch are also great. Bernice had some wisdom teeth removed and is battling a 
little bit of infection so some prayer for her would be great!
Hopefully the internet stays but if not we love you and we will talk to you all soon!

10 more sleeps!

Well we are almost in the sun... thank you Lord!! 
Although our Mexico Missions trip has snuck up on me, I am really excited! Excited to see Joel and Sally, to see Sergio, Bernice and enoch - he was only a baby last year now he is running around how fun! 

I'm excited to see our team of youth grow together as a family, it always seems that when we come back the whole youth group catches on and that sense of unity and family is strengthened!

I'm excited to meet new pastors and families of the churches we are going to.

I'm excited to see the hearts of our students expanded in what God's heart for His people truly is.

I'm excited for the Van and all the inside jokes that are made.

I'm excited for Disneyland!! 

When our expectations are high and we trust in God's power great things happen and I am so excited!
Please start and continue to pray for our team as we go!


We are leaving Thursday March 12th and we will be back March 23rd!

Well I have been gifted with a fabulous extra day off this week because of conference and it has been an awesome 2 lazy days! It seems when you have days off in the week instead of the weekend you rest more... I guess cause there isn't plans or people making plans! Anyway, I have had tons of sleep, got a lot of reading done, hung out with our 24 life group.. always a joy, and just really feel rested and ready to conquer the rest of the week and what looks like the count down to Mexico!

Each day the facebook count downs are reminding me how close our Youth Missions trip is... as excited as I am I certainly  don't feel ready.. ha ha ha! I guess all we really need is hands to help and a willing heart! Well thats whats next on the schedule... so thats exciting Joel and Sally, here we come!
