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
Even Spiritual Warriors need training, and I feel as though I'm going through a real breaking. Stress at the home front because of my husband's illness and apathy and my general unhappiness with the status quo has stirred up the emotional eating... Read more
Introducing Soldados de Bendicion
It was during a conversation with Esli (Soldier of Waiting) that we came up with the name for the next Team that would be joining me next summer on my 7th mission trip to Peru. Bendicion means Blessing, and it's because I'm depending on God bles... Read more
Favorite group shots
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!
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
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!

Soldiers of Waiting (Soldados de Espera)
After settling in Iquitos when I arrived in June this year, I went with a small group of people to revisit some of the churches I had gone to last year. Pastor Johel helped to coordinate things with the pastors. My #1 spiritual son Foreman was o... Read more
Presenting "Rock Soldiers" (Soldados de Roca)
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
Presenting "Mud Soldiers" (Soldados de Barro)
Well, it's time to reminisce, having gone through all of this past summer's photos.
Last year I had the pleasure of traveling with a group of a pastoral couple and 3 young men from Lima, and another who joined us from Iquitos, to visit some r... Read more
From Glory to Glory He's Changing Me
ANyone remember that little song? "His likeness and image to perfect in me the Love God has shown to the world..."
Since I finished up the pix from this summer's tripI thought I'd take a stroll down memory lane focusing on Pastors I've come to... Read more
Time goes by too fast...the five weeks I was in Peru this summer just didn't seem long enough.
Today's photos feature a weekend side trip north to Chiclayo (I should get a map to post!) with Pastora Sabina. Her family - her 80+ father and 2 si... Read more
Fit for Service
I've been given a ministry of Visitation in the House of the Lord...And God's House is more than just my own local church. Since He saw fit to let me go to visit among the brethren in Peru, and some of that visitation involves tromping over some... Read more
More of my Shiney New Penny and other interesting things
My daughter-in-law sent me some more pix of my new granddaughter! And I also changed my pix...well, I changed them AGAIN from what they'd been yesterday before I got the pix of Penny! For some reason, I bumped a few of those to make room for the... Read more
I finally got some pix of my new granddaughter, penny. And NOT from her daddy (my only flesh-and-blood son ) but rather from her AUNTIE, my daughter in Texas. Apparently my son sent her some pix via his cell phone, and she just ASSUMED that of C... Read more
While Iquitos is my home-away-from-home, and Foreman is my number one spiritual son, I've gotten to know other Peruvians. Abel is another son, who hails from Lima - but was able to accompany during my time in Iquitos. It's good to have lost weig... Read more
