Catching Up

Sunday, July 08, 2007      0 comments

Friday after the internet, we ended up not going for Chinese - didnīt want to take another motokar. Rather, we walked to a restaurant Esli knew (took plastic) called The Yellow Rose of Texas - features Tex Mex as well as regional cooking. Fore t... Read more

Pleasant Days...

Friday, July 06, 2007      1 comments

Well, I stopped by the internet yesterday but didnīt post a "newsletter". In the morning I went with Marleni to visit intercessor Dora Tamani where we breakfasted on TOCINO (bacon - but lean, slab style) and platanos. Then we took the collectiv... Read more

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

Last year when I was here with Pastor Jorge Samelvino and a group from Lima, we werre given four days, an hour a day, of free radio time on the Christian station MIC here in Iquitos. I had wanted tomake a donation to the station, having benefite... Read more

Behold how good...

Saturday night we had our pastoral dinner, meeting at Kikirikkiīs. 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

Saturday, June 30, 2007      0 comments

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...

Tuesday, June 26, 2007      2 comments

Itīs 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 didnīt 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

My thanks to all who have been praying ... keep it up! Sonia got me to the airport at 130, and my 420 flight left at 530, thus missing my 620 Chciago connection BUT I was put on the wait list for the 705, and JUST made that walking at a good p... Read more

Countdown!

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

Wednesday, June 13, 2007      1 comments

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

Thursday, May 31, 2007      0 comments

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
