The God who sees ME

The God who sees ME

El Roi is my favorite name of God because it means the God who sees. He sees me. He wants to have a relationship with me and wants to know every detail of me life even though He is KING of the Universe. He is so good to me. He is my Lord and Savior. Nothing shall separate me from His love. He is All that I need and MORE!

Central America Summer 2015

So the update you all have been waiting for! Oh goodness, how do I summarize a whole month of active ministry into a one or a few updates...

First off, I just want to praise my Lord and Savior for His faithfulness, and His working.
Over and over again, He was showing me that it's all Him. He fills us, works through us, speaks through us, prays through us, and convicts people of sin, opens their eyes to their need of a Savior, and saves the person. If we get a sneak peak into what He's doing it's only by His mercy that He chooses to use us in His work. Our only job is to completely surrender ourselves to Him, and be that willing vessel. We plant the seeds and He brings the increase!

The picture above is a worship service we attended at a widow's house. She has been through so much, please pray for her and her family. The services we attended over there were always so precious, and a huge encouragement to me. You know, you strip everything away, leaving only family and God, and truly the whole materialist ideas melt away. I love how they worship God with hands raised, not looking around, but focused on worshipping their creator.

My mom thought of this idea to bring a roll of freezer paper and watercolors. The kids loved it, and they kept unrolling and unrolling the paper to make new coloring stations. We did this at the gang village. Please pray for these kids as killing and violence and destructive homes are all they have ever known. It's very ingrained. But we know that God's love can and will break though.

My special friend from December I got to see again. We were at a church service at a local church member's house.

We got to share with the catholic school! Praise God!

Mis amigas! Haha! Sure do miss these girls. Such encouragers and godly sisters in Christ. We shared good and bad times together! I was so happy to find out that Sandy was going on this trip, since I hadn't seen her in forever. She and Rachel were my best friends on this trip. And both have such a heart to love and serve. I loved my long talks with Rachel and many many times laughing over the joys of reaching out to people that you want so desperately to know and love, but sometimes makes for awkward moments, or the very sweetest of moments! Sandy and I loved to translate together if we could. Both having to stretch our abilities, but both having the other to rely on. I loved watching this young lady serve with meekness and love. 

This is a very specially baby. This is the baby of a dear dear friend's daughter. :) She has an incredible story and truly it's a miracle baby. 

Holland! I can't tell everyone, how thankful I was to have my accountability partner be Holland. We had such good times talking, and praying together. It was awesome to know I had someone I could really rely on. Such a mature young lady. I'm so excited to see what God has for her life!

My little girl Cecia. It made my day to spend time with her again!

So thankful for Mayda and how God gave me another chance to see her and talk to her. 

So some videos too to see more what all we did. :) God be praised!
