Sunday, August 26, 2007      4 comments

I was sobbing this morning after I read an e-mail from my son Abel, who'd been doing relief work in Pisco, Peru. He'd told me how he'd just gotten news that he'd been accepted in a position in a company, so now he's employed, and with health ben... Read more

I got an e-mail from Foreman with photos of what he's witnessed in Ica and Pisco, 2 of the hardest hit regions of Peru's 8.0 quake, which I've put in my photo gallery. When I saw them, and thought of the many people I've come to know and love, a... Read more
More about Abel
Tuesday, August 21, 2007      0 comments

Abel has grown so much in the Lord since we first got to know each other through the messenger. I like to think that I had a part, when I "adopted" him and began covering him in prayer, as well as ministering Mother's Love (and a little spoiling... Read more

Cesar at last!
Sunday, August 12, 2007      0 comments

When Abel and I arrived in Lima from Iquitos, we didn't go directly home. We stopped by a music store on the way so I could get Cesar a new guitar (July 24 blog entry). But I was disappointed to find out that Cesar had to go out of town: his gra... Read more
Featuring Esli

For those who followed my blogs while I was in Peru, you heard the name of Esli frequently during the first 4 weeks. I "met" Esli in 2005 on the internet. I had met his father, Pastor Mario Gonzales, in 2003 when I went to Peru for my friend ... Read more

There is a cereal in the house, a chocolate frosted sugar bomb, which beckons to me before I go to bed - double whammy.I didn't purchase it, my daughter did (she should know better!) but still...I SHOULD exercise the power to make GOOD choices. ... Read more
the slow return to routine
Monday, August 06, 2007      0 comments

This morning I did my cardio and my strength! I have a ton of other things to do, notably work in the clay, but I want to get back in the routine of exercise and being careful of what I eat. Surprisingly, veggies weren't as readily available to ... Read more

Well, after a little nap it was time to make preparation to go. I was so delighted that Gaby, the youth pastora of Voz, was able to come by after work - I hadn't seen her until then. And Elvis also came by after work - soI saw them enough to be ... Read more

Sabi´s sister Vicki wanted to take be to Lambayaque, the "state" next to the one Chiclayo is in, to see the "largest KING KONG." Of course, the only one with which I am familiar, and probably most of you, is the primate of cinematographic reknow... Read more

Saturday, July 28, 2007      1 comments

We arrived after a bus trip of about 14 hours...oog! But I did actually sleep a bit. Leydy, Sabi´s niece, has brought me here to the local internet, and after some false starts, it´s finally up and running, and I plan to use at least 2 hours to ... Read more
