Misc.

I am so glad I don't lose money if I can't blog! I would love to post everyday, but my "day job" as missionary wife and homeschool mama is keeping me busy. We just finished a stewardship conference this weekend. If you don't know what a stewardship conference is about, I tell you, its basically about money. Of course, you're supposed to give of your time, talents, and all that to God too, but, truth be told, the thing we don't want to give is our money.
The pastor who came to preach is an old friend who has been in Chile for 30-plus years. He's known me since I was a little girl. He is still telling the same jokes he told 23 years ago, No Kidding!

Several of the teenage girls and I went to work on the church building today. I spread paste on the walls and sanded walls and mopped and cooked lunch for the group then I washed all the dishes. I just love washing dishes. Not. We got icky dirty and I have a blister!!!!!!!!! Please pray that God will send more money to finish this building before it finishes us!

Guess what? No Greater Joy publications will start selling "Created to be His Helpmeet" in Spanish. Woo Hoo!!! I can't wait to share it with my gals.

I've got a wee bit more to blog about, but later. I love you gals!!

Wow...you have been busy haven't you? I know how that can be. Being a pastor's wife and momma is a bit demanding at times...but I love it!! I'm glad that No Greater Joy is putting that publication out in Spanish. I've heard that is a great book. I really do have to get it. Just haven't been able to as of yet.

I was really excited about the fact that the Pearls will be selling that book in Spanish too!!!! I am hoping to pick some up when we are in the USA for Christmas. I really think many women need to hear what that book has to say.
