Year #3 To El Salvador

HOLA! It is now officially crunch time preparing for the 2010 trip to El Salvador.
I am blessed, yet again, that Ted is willing to send me for 2 separate mission trips again this year.

My first week will be with Missionary Friend, Leila McNabb. I will arrive on March 6th at about 1 PM their time. I think they are only an hour behind us in Indiana.

The second mission assignment will begin with Bridges of Hope on Saturday the 13th. Actually the rest of the team arrives at 9 PM and should be at the hotel at around 11 PM. They will be exhausted - so no events are scheduled until Sunday afternoon.

Biggest change this year....I AM SO EXCITED!!! My sister is going with me --- for BOTH weeks!
So I will be blogging for 2 this year. Although sis is a few years older, I feel sort of like a mom this time. Just watching and hearing her enthusiasm this past few weeks in preparation is like watching one of your kids anticipating vacation time --- only so much better!

Carol's friends at her church have really gotten involved with the missions we will do. We get to serve together!!! We will be presenting children's evangelism for the first week. We both join Leila's group - Women Of Faith In Action (WOFIA). Leila has an agenda set and she will keep us busy. We will be speaking in churches and a school as well as ministering to women and children in a hospital.

The second week (13th-20th) we will serve in lots of humanitarian outreach projects - including at least one child evangelism outreach. More on those things later.

For now - if you are viewing this - please pray for Carol and me as we prepare for LIFT OFF on the 6th. Lots of packing to do. So many last minute details to remember. Pray for our flight to be on time and uneventful - for the luggage to make it to El Salvador when we do - and for us to stay healthy and safe. Oh, pray for our hubbies, Ted and Ray as the batch it for a couple of weeks.

Check in with the blog often. I hope to keep it updated. Looking forward to every surprise God has waiting for us. You are on our team now..... And we need you!!!

OH, 1 more thing. My wonderful hubby just bought me a laptop to take to ES. Pray I figure this thing out in the next week!!!

  1. I found it. YEAH!!!!

    We are praying for you and Carol. We are also praying for Ted and Ray. God will open their hearts and hopefully on the next trip they will be with you. I am looking forward to traveling with you this time. I will be checking often to see what is going on. For now:

    Romans 10:12-15 (NIV)
    12 For there is no difference between Jew and Gentile—the same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on him, 13 for, "Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved." 14 How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? 15 And how can they preach unless they are sent? As it is written, "HOW BEAUTIFUL ARE THE FEET OF THOSE WHO BRING GOOD NEWS!"

    May God keep you in His hands always. May He give you discernment to see the opportunities He places before you even before take off. And, Numbers 6:
    24 " ' "The LORD bless you
    and keep you;
    25 the LORD make his face shine upon you
    and be gracious to you;
    26 the LORD turn his face toward you
    and give you peace." '
    I am also asking God to do this for Ted and Ray.
