Read My Story!!!!

I must apologize for not blogging. I am very busy, believe me!

My brother is engaged! He is planning on getting married October 13th, 2013.

Thus, I am busy!

Second, I go to Wisconsin tomorrow! I am terribly excited and I will try to take all the pictures I can! It’s the awesomest place I’ve ever been! We are still trying to get packed, get food ready for the 10-11 hour drive, and pack the van.

Thus, I am busy!

But I haven’t completely forgotten my blogger friends. I do have pictures I have drawn, but the picture I am working on I cannot show you. Not yet! ūüėČ Instead, I have something for y’all to read. I found and read over one of my old drafts, from June 2013, Camp Nanowrimo. I think it is my favorite draft that I have. I made a cover for it awhile ago….

To be sure, I have plans to change some things in it, but I want to let y’all read it and critique it. Please be ruthless with the story, and please be kind to me!

If a doc. doesn’t work for you somehow, let me know and I’ll try to email it to you, but it will be after I return from Wisconsin.

Back from Mexico

Wow, what trip! It felt so… strange to leave because, literally, it felt like I had been there forever. It felt so normal, taking showers with a bucket, playing on the keyboard without a pedal, being taught flute until I was dizzy, singing for our food. It is such a full life to the extent that I had no desire for the. computer or phone.

We had only two technical translators, but two others who were fairly good, one with them, one with us. The one with them was the pastor’s son, Ismael, and I learned a bunch from him. This guy, 14, want wants to come to America or France and become a chemist. That’s why he knew a lot of English. His brother, Abdiel was also fun and later every time I said “Que?” he said, “What?” Anywho, I had a good time, I learned even more, and I was greatly blessed. I will try to make a post soon about the trip, and my brother took many pictures, but right now I am on my friend’s phone, so “asta luego”

Edit:

I’m sick, like really not feeling well, so you can pray that I get better. As soon as my brother edits the Mexico pictures and I start feeling well enough, I can try to write a longer post.

Mexico Update

I wanted to update people on my blog about the trip to Mexico. Friday the 14th was the deadline! Praise the Lord, all the funds are collected, not only for our team and two additional members that we had been praying for, but $400 more for construction of the church building.

I was greatly blessed by our team meeting on the 8th. We talked about the places we hoped to be going, talked about our mission, read our team covenant together (really good), and prayed as a team, and we really felt like a team. We are praying for each other, seeking the Lord together, and knowing that people are praying for me, it’s more than I can say. Thank you to everyone praying. Because I believe that prayer actually¬†does work, and it strengthens me a lot.

One prayer request we had on this trip was to involve the whole church, not just the branch of the church called Psalm 67 Missions Network. The Lord has answered prayer! The Manna Project was started by a couple in the church, collecting spare change, change that would have gone to soda, chips, trinkets, but instead God has impressed on us to give toward Bibles. In quarters, dimes, nickles, and pennies, through the Manna Project, we have received $275 dollars for Spanish Bibles! It was a prayer need that the Pastor had given us and we had prayed about. Not only that, but many of the people in our home churches have pledged to be on our prayer team, praying regularly, being faithful to read updates, and some supporting through giving financially. It has been a blessing!

In 8 days we will be heading down to Mexico, the minute it is no longer “Christmas day.” Pray that though we must leave Christmas celebrations soon, we will have a chance to share the gospel with unsaved family members, and show then what we truly are living for. Pray for safety. Even though the place we are going is safe, the world is still dangerous, and we will be near the border. Pray for wisdom for our team leaders, Aaron and Billy. Pray for the Pastor and the church in Matamoros who are directing us in our plans, pray for great wisdom and understanding for them.

For me specifically, I honestly don’t know what to pray for, because I have not gone on a mission trip before. I am simply praying for the Lord to prepare me in any areas I need help in, I am sure there are a lot.

Thank you so much!

update

I’m just gonna swash all the lastest updates in one paragraph. I miss my starry night background, so sorry everyone who complained, but it’s up again and more beautiful than ever! Zoom up if you need to.¬†The Hobbit was released, I missed it. The world was supposed to end, but I missed that too. We had our Taste and Send bakeoff yesterday, 1600+ treats made.¬†Christmas is approaching and I’m looking forward to visiting with family in just a few days. I think I sort of¬†re-injured¬†my ankle last night while sitting on the floor absorbed in a book. I just twisted it, it make a loud complaint, and started hurting some. I’m reading Flight from Stonewycke by Michael Phillips and Judith Pella. I really like these books and I can’t get away from them. I started drawing the other day, but it wasn’t good enough to do anything with. For awhile I was drawing a bunch of characters from Nanowrimo people. That grew old, sadly. It was fun while it lasted. We hosted a dance! It was very fun. We had to drop a few dances to keep it short enough though, and they dropped one of my favorites. At the end I played a waltz on my tin whistle and sang a verse of the song with my brother. The song was an old Scottish song, Wild Mountain Thyme. Very pretty. Friday was the deadline for all the funds for the Mission Trip. I haven’t heard the result. We are still collecting funds for construction that the church building needs.

So that’s about it.

Tootles!
