I Itch.

Have you ever heard that saying– ‘left hand itch–you will “give something”, right hand, you will “receive something”… well….

I itch all over my arms.  Both.

I believe it’s because I’m about to join my husband, Jeff and our Mission Team 2013 and GO and give MUCH!  Time, energy, heart, faith, life, love and prayers.  Not to mention all the Bibles and school supplies that have poured in.  (Thank you all by the way.)

Isn’t it neat how we can reach around the world and be of assistance, yet remain where we are?  Sometimes though, some are called to carry that “assistance”.

I’m your carrier.

My mother continually reminds me of the meaning of my name:  Angela.  Messenger of God.  Bringer of good news (I read that somewhere).  A few years ago, a friend (Denise) embroidered me a picture of my name in Hebrew with it’s meaning–“Messenger”.  It hangs in my kitchen, by my sink as a reminder of my purpose.

     Go.

   Tell.

So, with House Sitter in place…and keeper of Scooter, we embark on a journey to do just that.

Go.

Tell.

Build up the Kingdom of God-by all means necessary.

We will be laying brick–building walls to secure a building for the church that already exists.  (The Church is the Body of Christ–the believers.)

I hope you will join me back here every day as I share through words and pictures exactly what we are doing–GIVING CHRIST to everyone who will RECEIVE.

My son-in-law, David will be sorely missed.  We trust in God’s ways and plans—and BELIEVE that He has all things under control.  David will be joining us through prayer–and spreading the Gospel via a mighty testimony of a miracle that happened just a few weeks ago.  David is a walking–breathing–talking–MIRACLE.  SO…he will do a bit of “telling” of his own.  Thank you God for your MIGHTY hand of protection!

This Mission Team 2013 is made up of 3 churches.  Our church, Grace Assembly, New Life Fellowship, and First Assembly of God (of Marianna).  We are thrilled to have our team together…we have traveled together for Missions since we began to build.  God put us together–and we are THANKFUL!

So, stay tuned.  Saturday is coming!

AND, while you are staying tuned….pray.  Pray for each of the 18 members of this team, plus the missionary that will be leading us, Mike Baldree.  PLUS, pray for good internet connection!

Sometimes…we need a little help

Some days feels like a scribble pad.

Sometimes sense can be made from the doodling that happens when I get on the phone…

Sometimes I draw circles…sometimes I draw arrows…

Often it’s arrows.  Sometimes…absolutely NO Sense whatsoever can be made from my doodling on paper.

Then…there are days that I draw trees, houses, clouds…life.   I love crayons, colored pens and colored pencils.

It’s a quirk probably, but I LOVE school time and school supplies…

Doodling.  Drawing.  Scribbling.  Writing.  Creating…

 When you give a child a crayon–most of the time they know what to do with it…

Then there are those times when they see a bright colored crayon–and their eyes light up–and even seem to bug out.

A. Whole. Unbroken. Crayon.  For me?  Their eyes seem to say…

A project you can help with for our Bolivia trip is simple…if you want to be a part.  We need new small boxes of crayons…colored pencils, a few rulers and notebook paper.

We are also hoping to take each teacher (at the school in Don Lorenzo) a gift bag.  So–if you are a teacher–and you already KNOW what a teacher would need–in a 3rd world country where supplies are almost unobtainable…maybe you would like to contribute or offer some suggestions….

The point?

Help them.  Give them.  Equip them.

Create some smiles…

We leave August 31.  We would love for you to be a part.  You can contact me by email– you can send your item to our church to be packed–or if you are in the area…you can drop by for a visit and allow us to thank you in person!

Everything helps.  Even one pack of crayons.
