Journaling

Outside my window.... stray dogs, kids running around without any clothes, & a nice breeze

I am thankful for.... the older couple that came over for counseling this afternoon. She is 75 and he is 78. They had a romance when they were young but they were from different social classes so it ended. They were re-united a couple of years ago. He has recently come to know Christ. He wants to marry her, but too many details to get straightened out. Their story made me smile.

I am remembering.... Joseph trying to do a push up the right way… LOL

I am going ... to get ready for my lesson for Wednesday night

I am ready ....to get into the word

I am hoping.....that we find a room for Magnita to stay in while we build the downstairs apartment

On my mind...I want God to change me.

I am hearing....Fireside by the Wilds

Noticing that......It is hard to live far away from family

Pondering these words....Don't focus on the weaknesses but on the blessings.

From the learning room…It is better to give than to receive

Plan for the week...Be a supportive wife, a wise mother, and tender missionary

A Scripture thought ...
Proverbs 18:1 “Whoever isolates himself seeks his own desire

“God has filled your tea cup, enjoy the flavor”.

We are finally back in Puerto Maldonado. We have had an eventful last two weeks. We have spent 28 hours on a bus, 10 hours on a van, & about 8 hours in a taxi. We went to Arin for a youth conference, Cusco to buy building supplies, & Quillabamba to visit our friends Beto, Neli & their 3 kids. Our boys did not do well with all the traveling. There was some throwing up and much crying. But all in all we had a blast! We made many memories and grew closer as a family.

Yesterday

I have spent the day going to the market, teaching Joseph the letter A, and cleaning the laundry room in search of a dead rat. Last night we enjoyed great food and sweet fellowship with our co-laborers Jim & Sue. Praise God for good friends. I am learning to enjoy each day. While in Cusco I was able to speak with my sister Lissette. She shared with me what she has been learning. She signed off telling me “God has filled your tea cup, enjoy the flavor”. That is my goal. I am learning to see God’s hand in each detail of each day.

Verse of the day

“Rejoice in our confident hope,
Be patient in trouble,
and Keep on praying”
Romans 12:12
