(L to R: me, Delie, Caroline, April Hilda, Julia, Genesis, Shea)
I can’t believe that tomorrow morning at 6 am, I will be on a plane with these ladies to El Salvador. Getting to go abroad to take photos and tell peoples stories has quickly become a dream of mine. Ever since I took the class at our church this time last year (Digital photography for ministry) I realized what a ministry photography could be. I never really thought of it like that before – but that class opened my eyes and my heart and I’ve been trying to give back my gifts and talents to bless others. I have been literally begging God to let me go to another country to take photos. I did a post about it here: http://elderadventures.blogspot.com/2011/02/just-do-it.html but I am so grateful this opportunity is here!! I just wanted to let yall know where I’ll be the next week & also ask you to pray for me and the other women. We are going to teach these ladies how to dig into God’s Word and do daily devotionals. We will also be cooking & delivering meals with the women, going to the Foundation to play with the kids and teach them some english and much more. I have a mission – specific stories to tell. I pray that I will be able to effectively tell these stories & ask that you pray with me that God would give me confidence to be me & do what He’s made me to do.
Last night we had our final team meeting & made aporns for our new friends. Genesis & I are rooming together at Suyapa’s house (see her cute apron we made her!). Shea & Julia are our team leaders – so be lifting them up in prayer too! Can’t wait to show you images when I return. Expectant that God is going to MOVE!
