ONEderland again at last...

Wednesday, February 13, 2008      1 comments

It's frustrating, to have reached 180 and then crept back up over 200. But okay, I'm finally dipping back into the hundreds, and if I lay hold of the grace and practice what I have learned, and work at breaking bad habits and building good ones,... Read more

Fun with Foreman and Family

Friday, January 25, 2008      0 comments

It's so delightful to have Foreman and Yeli here...and the baby too! I had felt a little badly that here I'd brought them all this way, yet I hadn't had any time to arrange any speaking engagements or anything for Foreman to impart his vision... Read more

Calling things that are not as though they were

Monday, January 14, 2008      0 comments

Foreman loves to tease me and lately, knowing I put some of the weight back on, he's called me "gringuita menos flaquita" (less thin). I told him that bugged me - and to start calling things that are not as though they were. I have to look that ... Read more

Okay, the holidays are over and now I'm working to regain the ground I lost from regaining the WEIGHT I lost. Had some special visits during the holidays- my high school buddies Vikki and Sue; DD Cass and SIL Brent. Afterwards, made a trip out t... Read more

Gotta change!

Friday, January 04, 2008      0 comments

I can't make excuses...stress or good food...I gotta get the eating under control. I COULD HAVE achieved goal by now. How frustrating! The good: I AM fairly consistent in exercise. And I HAVE increased the challenge to my muscles - for while I m... Read more

Foreman is coming!

My number one spiritual son from Peru is Foreman Varela - those of you who've read my blogs have already heard plenty about him! THIS time he'll be accompanied by wife Yeli and baby Emanuel (1 1/2 year old) I've put back a "few" pounds over th... Read more

Boot Camp

Sunday, December 23, 2007      1 comments

Favorite group shots

Tuesday, December 11, 2007      0 comments

I'm a people person, especially since the Lord delivered me from Fear of Rejection. I especially love to be among others who are as passionate about the Lord as I am. When I go to Peru, I get to hang out with such people all the time. Missionar... Read more

Why, YES, I DO have family that's not in Peru!

Thursday, December 06, 2007      0 comments

I love the missionary work I do in Peru, but it's because of the relationships I have formed there. But before I was "Mamallama" I was and still am just plain "Mom"...or Mommy, or Mumz. I married my DH Ansel at the age of 20.Our first child was ... Read more

Becoming MAMALLAMA

Tuesday, November 27, 2007      0 comments

Well, ever since my first missionary trip to Peru in 1997, I decided to set aside collections of elephants and cows and start collecting llamas. FYI, they are indigenous to Peru. And being harder to find, I'm not quite so overrun by them! ... Read more

Presenting "Rock Soldiers" (Soldados de Roca)

Friday, November 16, 2007      0 comments

It was Pastor Jorge Samelvino who coined their name because of the terrain we were going to, in the mountains ("Sierra") of Peru. The Andes are like the backbone of the country. Along the coast, where Lima is, they are dry and barren. But inland... Read more
