oh Thank God! I really need a hair cut!

Just Kidding. I'm really excited for you. I think it should definitely cut down on your stress level to have a little more time to make ready. Congratulations!

Do you have a flight date yet?

And what about her name? I want to know the little lady's name. =)

phone service is very poor - so i haven't been able to get through - or perhaps you gave your phone already to Agatha? i dreamed about her this morning, that she came over here to live with us. hmmm... i know that you love her and have invested much in her young life. how old is she? 19? college there soon? i just thought i'd write when it came to mind.

i hope you were able to get some pictures of the street kids that touched your (and our) hearts while you were there. Please post some of your stories when you get home. Please! We all want to hear about the experiences in full color.

We have missed you, but knew that you were to go there for a season.

I'm glad the season is up - and we all trust that the Lord is working everything for good ---- everything! He is Good to all - especially those who call on His name...

His name ... hmmm... if we could just get a grasp of WHO He is and ALL He is... and call out to HIS NAME (whichever one we need at the time)

While we all wait for you to come home.... perhaps we can list one of the Names - Attributes of the Lord - and call out to Him for His blessings on your trip home...

ok - someone else's turn... don't forget THE NAME

JEHOVAH SHAMMA - The God Who is "There" with you, where ever you go, where ever you are...

He promised to never leave us or forsake us - and I claim His promise for you as your travel from one side of the globe to the other....

Traveling Mercies.....

JEHOVAH SHALOM - PEACE is His Name that I can run into and hide

I can step into His loving arms when I'm afraid or feel anxious and He, Mr. Peace I Am, will hold me and blow away my fears. Mr. Peace I Am takes a feather and gently wipes away my tears, then tickles me and makes me laugh and forget what I was worried about in the first place :-) When I'm in His arms, the storm might be raging, the winds might be blowing, the hail-stones asailing, but safe am I with the Great I Am as my surrounding Guardian. No matter how horrible things look like on the outside, if I remain centered in Him - there is peace.

I know you know this principle and that you know the Author of Peace - (You've introduced me to Him many-a-time.) But, I'm reminding myself that He does all things well, and He will carry you home safely and that when I am afraid because I haven't heard from you in a long many hours, HE is my Peace.
