Something New
Wednesday, July 04, 2007      0 comments

Well, yesterday after I had a nice nap, I asked Yeli if she had some nailclippers as my fingernails were getting a little ragged. But she wanted to give me another manicure (NOT your typical missionary agenda!) and paint them. So, as I was sitti... Read more

Saturday night we had our pastoral dinner, meeting at Kikirikki´s. I was delighted to see some familiar faces, and told them not to test me on the names of the new pastors I met. We passed a piece of paper around, arranged like a calendar, so th... Read more
Back from the Jungle Churches

We left Iquitos by LANCHA (large boat) on Tues, rather than the hoed for Mon, and LATE, so we arrived at the village of Jorge Chavez on Wed well after the sun had set. But I was delighted to see the familiar face of Pastor Augusto awaiting on sh... Read more
The best laid plans...

It´s so nice to have a trustworthy God so that when our own plans are foiled we at least know that those of our God do not. Marleni, Abel, Levy, and I arrived at the port in good time with our stuff. Ps Johel arrived soon after (Betti took the r... Read more

Well, When we arrived in Iquitos, I didn´t want to pay a porter to lug our stuff so between me and abel we hauled our luggage out to the curb where Foreeman was waiting. Hearing his characteristic whistle, I called to him , Toma tu bendita maqui... Read more

I got home from school yesterday all tired...but WIRED. I KNEW I wasn't going to be able to nap until I had somewhat finalized my packing. (I still ended up shuffling things from carry-on to Iquitos box to Lima box to carry-on). Of course I can'... Read more

It's 3 days before I leave for Peru. I've bought all I'm going to buy, and will finalize packing Thursday night (okay, probably last minute adjustments Friday when I get home from school). I'm bringing workout dvd's and resistance band, trusting... Read more
Great Expectations

Although I didn't get rid of more pounds as I'd hoped prior to my trip, I've at least maintained and am happy that I'm ten less than when my Peruvian friends last saw me. So that's SOMETHING. And being there, I'll have less temptations - less OP... Read more
Changing Lives

Lately in the daily reflections we've frequently discussed our power to affect others and the world around us. So, since it's been a while since I changed my pix, I figured I'd focus on that. The gallery shows progressive pix from the 5 week mis... Read more

Warm day today - hurray! -so I wasn't wearing a sweater. I'd gotten rid of some of the yo-yo'd pounds... Well, one of the (male) teachers commented, 'I don't remember if I mentioned anything to you or not - if I have forgive me for being redunda... Read more
fasting and praying
Monday, May 28, 2007      2 comments

Not to lose weight, mind you, even though I am disgusted with my previous lack of self-control. I want to embark on this 40 day prayer-fast with my church (and others) - and decided to take it from day to day as to what I will fast. I breakfa... Read more

It's the eating thing. Food just tastes so good, and sometimes I'm just tired of tracking the calories I would rather just stuff into myself! BUT I continue to workout...even when I would like to skip it...and I even do more than my goal of card... Read more

Thursday, May 17, 2007      0 comments

As a Teacher Assistant, I'm occasionally asked to take kids out of the class...whether they're being disruptive, so that others won't be distracted...or the class is particularly distracting and the ones I take out are the beneficiaries...to giv... Read more
