She's in Haiti!

You all know I think my mom is a super hero. Well she's proved yet again how super she is! Yesterday she set off on a 7 day missions trip to Haiti. While my dad & I worried about her safety and well being her worries were "What should I take to help these people?" "How can I work faster to get the most done?" 

Here is the first picture from her team:

There is so much to be done, so many needs in Haiti. My kids wanted to be apart of her journey, so before she left they went through all their toys and picked out stuffed animals they wanted her to give to kids there. I know my mom will be an asset to the missions team, not only because she is the hardest worker I've ever met, and not only because she brought a portable coffee maker to help everyone wake up in the morning (ha ha). But, because she has a huge heart. I hope everything goes well, I hope she is put in the path of those that need her most. Please keep all the missionaries of the world in your thoughts and prayers for all they do & have yet to do.

Here is a picture of one of the projects they will be working on:


Acts 6:4
"But we will give ourselves continually to prayer and to the ministry of the word".

Proverbs 3:5-6
"Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct your paths"




Have you ever been on a missions trip? If so, where? What did you do there? What was it like?
(in HS I went to Mexico and helped build sleeping quarters for other missionaries, it was such a powerful experience.)

au revoir, adieu, ciao, till next time...

WTG Mom!! I haven't been on a mission trip...but my daughter went on two mission trips in high school and her freshman year of college. To Idaho, they worked on the Lutheran Camp and taught Sunday school and then to South Mississippi and Louisiana providing Hurricane Katrina relief.

Forever memories were made.
