Time to get Passports?

This is the volcano we visited while in El Salvador. It was an awesome sight!

We had our El Salvador mission's trip debriefing last night at the Wahba's home. It was so nice to be with the whole team again! We had lots of food and some good ideas for the next team going. Another one going in March, maybe. Hopefully, it all works out to go. Curtis wants to go ahead and take our teens this time. 16yo son and 15 yo daughter. Hmm...wonder if there is enough time to get their passports?

By the way, we did our fund-raising as a group instead of as individuals. It was such a blessing and we had a surplus! The surplus will help send the March team to help Lorraine and Hannah's Hands. Praise the Lord!

This Friday, Curtis and I will start facilitating a Love Dare group. We are really looking forward to it! Our kids get to go with us and hang out, do Bible study, play games, and snack while we have the group discussion.

El Salvador - First Time on Foreign Missions

Funny things I saw on my trip:
1. Our surgeon friend, his wife, and my husband with pig hats on oinking and going after the prodigal son. The children LOVED this one! (This funny drama brought many to Christ.)
2. Our driver trying to make us smile while taking our group photo... Say "Queso." "Record." We all obediently said "record" and smiled. Then he told us..."No, I'm recording you now!" We all started laughing from embarassment. Loved it!
3. Parking the van in spaces that no human could fit...let alone an entire van. >>l<< Everybody squeeze!

As I think of more, I'll write them here. Maybe I should get "Fish in My Hair" to do the writing. Then you could really get the gist of the fun!

(As you can see, this is not my main blog. I used Xanga for a long time, then went back to my own pen and paper journal. Hmm...let's see how this goes.)
