We're Back

Hola :o) Just a quick update----11:30pm.

The Courier just brought 12 of our 16 bags to my house.

Still Missing:
Darby's w/her personal medical equipment. (She needs this to do her final exam video, for school--due Wednesday)

The 2 bags of Dr. Russell's w/the dental equipment. (He needs this to run his dental office)

One of Sherry's bags. (Not sure what's in Sherry's bag :oP

Just tried to call Delta, but Nashville is closed for the night.
Won't know more until the morning.
I also don't know if Tabatha got her bags.

Keep on Praying :0)

I will make this post short & sweet, and will post much more soon. Just wanted to let you know we were back, and had a wonderful mission trip. God is AWESOME.

One small prayer request-- None of our luggage made it back to Nashville. Dr. Russell can not open his office Monday w/o his dental equipment. Please pray that they will resolve this issue today.

More missions details soon. . .

Mexico Missions Bound :o)

It is 4:00am. I am about to leave for Mexico. Don't have a lot of time to post, but wanted to ask for your prayers. Clinic Days should be Monday through Thursday, we'll know more about our exact plans when we get there. I will not have internet or telephone access :o( We return late on Saturday (10:45pm). Please pray for our mission team, and also for our families.

Specific prayer request for my dear friend Darby. Her Dad was put in the hospital w/pneumonia yesterday, and her oldest daughter broke her arm.

Thank you all. I will post pictures & incredible stories about what an amazing God we serve, when I get back.

How Much Can I Get Done In 4 Days?

As I sit here in front of the computer, I think I really have too much to do to be sitting here in front of the computer :o)

I leave for Mexico in 4 days.

I need to clean my house, change two hamster cages, 1 litter box, 1 hermit crab dwelling. There will be countless loads of laundry, 1 more soccer practice. Did I mention I am coaching, and I will miss the 1st 2 games? Thank you Tim for filling in. :0) I work 2 more nights @ the hospital, and I need to start packing. I am sure there is more that I just can't think of right now. BLAH. . . BLAH. . . BLAH

For whatever reason, I always get a feeling of not being prepared before we go. Shouldn't I know by now that God's already prepared the way? Each trip I have been blown away by our wonderful Provider. How he continues to bless my family, and grow me through missions. Not just missions in Mexico, but missions every single day of our lives. So often we forget that we should be on a mission for God EVERY day.

My prayer for the rest of the week is not only for God to ready the people we will meet in Mexico, but to ready the people we will encounter WHEREVER we are.

May God allow you to be a blessing to someone today, and everyday--WHATEVER mission field you are on.
