Don't let the difficulties of the present moments overshadow the reality of God's promises. God's promises still stand. And God's promises are stronger than our failures.

Mission Trip - Day One

1. This has to be the coolest mission trip ever - they're letting me sew! God knows how much I love to sew. :)

2. This is a very small group - small enough that Jerry and I get to share a room. I can sleep in a room with other Christian women but it's so much nicer to have my regular roommate. :)

3. They are feeding us three very good meals a day. Very good. I might just gain 10 pounds this week. :(

It's exciting to hear that you got to sew! Whenever I go to a certain orphanage ministry in Mexico they ask me to be in the sewing room. They don't have to ask me twice! I'm glad the Lord can use our talents and skills no matter where we are.
