Yesterday, we had a great day of traveling. Although, everyone was pretty tired since we traveled all night and all day! We got here, ate lunch, and went to CIPI to visit the kids for about an hour. It was hard to be there and not see my sweet Carlos! But there were many more kiddos there wanting some love and attention! 

We just finished up our first full day in El Salvador! It was a good day.We went to a church service this morning. They were so welcoming! It was such a sweet church. A few of the members stayed in the church during the sermon and a few went to the children. We shared the Parable of the Lost Sheep with the children and we had a couple coloring sheets for them to do.

This afternoon, we had the chance to take the boys of CISNA to the movies. It was a good time to get them out of their "home" and let them be normal kids for a while. :) They enjoyed it and I enjoyed watching them! They all got popcorn and cokes and insisted we share with them! 

Eduardo spotted me before I saw him and called me by name! Makes me feel so good that they remember me!


Tomorrow we are going to San Martin to visit and love on some "kids" with special needs! It is always a good day! And we will visit the AIDS orphanage as well! Gonna be a good day!

Oh My Dang...

I am leaving for El Salvador in just about 36 hours. I can't believe the time is finally here.

I am excited beyond words to see these faces... 

But I'm SURE gonna miss these while I'm there...

I am excited and blessed to be used by the Lord when I am so unworthy! Thank you, Lord for seeing me fit to use!

This is me updating my blog. :)

I feel like I should update my blog but I have so much to say and not the time to say it.... So here's the shortened recap. :)

Just got home from Souled Out Church Camp on Friday. 2 weeks of nothing but AMAZING time in the Lord with His people and children. Loved every minute of it!

Friday Night the whole family  headed to the lake to spend the weekend. We had a good time. Just got to chill with the kids, sisters, brother-in-laws, and parents. Lots of swimming, fishing, and playing cards. Good quality time. :)

Sunday I spent the evening with my Dad for Father's Day. I really enjoyed the time I had with him. He cooked a good supper and we played some cornhole :)

Today starts the mad race of trying to get all of the stuff together and packed for El Salvador. Which is in 5 days! We have supplies all over town that need to be gathered. We have members of our team all over the Southeast. It's crazy. :) Gotta get money turned in. Passports turned in. Find someone to drive us to Nashville in the middle of the night. And so on....
