Jacqueline ♥

I’m so excited about this week.  Not only am I off work but I get to spend it with my cousin from Germany.  Aint she beautiful!?
She’s going to be so throwed-off by us Southern folk. Lol! It’s my first time to meet her but thankfully, we’ve been able to stay in touch through Facebook. Tomorrow I’m meeting her at the airport. Woohoo!!!

He felt like the work they did hardly made a dent but I know that it was worth it. God did some pretty remarkable things in so many people’s lives.  If you’re interested in reading his story, you can find it HERE. Oh and here are some pics of where they worked. I can't help but feel brokenhearted when I see these.

Faith came home from Costa Rica! For those that don’t know, she’s like a little sister to me.  She was gone for two months interning for The Abraham Project.  Faith found out about a year ago that God called her to be a missionary. Her name suits her perfectly because her story of faith is…
