GUESS WHAT!! (??)

I can never remember when you are excited about a question–if you are supposed to use an exclamation mark first then a few question marks…or is it questions marks then the exclamation… oh, never mind.  You know I am excited to get you to ask me “WHAT?”

This is that time of year when my excitement kicks into overdrive…and I bet yours will too once I tell you the “WHAT”…. 🙂

We are getting ready for B-O-L-I-V-I-A!  I told Joel Morales this week via Facebook that I was packing an EXTRA LARGE suitcase this time because I was staying a L-O-N-G time! 😉

Well, I’m not staying longer than the team, but I really am packing big…so are several of the team members…and we are giving YOU an opportunity to make an impact on some awesome little kids…but what is even more neat–the teachers there in Bolivia were blown away last year by the response we got when we had a “school supply drive”–and YOU helped.  Many of you brought school supplies to the church, one of my dear friends mailed some in– another couple sent money to make purchases of supplies–it was so exciting!  And we are at it again!

This is one simple and fun way that you get to be involved in the life of a child…one that our team will share Jesus with–and hopefully, we BELIEVE, will be able to lead to Christ in that first week of September!

Last year, the faces of the teachers, the look of incredulity was amazing.  They ooooed and aaahhed over the pencils, erasers, and crayons.  The chattered back and forth in excitement.  It brought us to tears.

The only thing that will last throughout all eternity are lives.  People.  When you sow into the life of another–you are making a difference that will last.  I cannot express this enough–if you are not able to go “yet” on a mission trip–this is a GREAT way to get started!  (I said “yet” because I BELIEVE that if you truly want to go, God will make a way for that to happen!)

So, without further adieu, we are asking for the following school supplies:

Color Pencils
Regular Pencils
Erasers
Small individual pencil sharpeners
Crayons
Notebook paper
Scissors
Glue
Construction paper
Red Pens (for the teachers)

We also plan to distribute some things in the village:
Tubes of toothpaste and toothbrushes
Bars of soap/bath cloths
1 Kitchen towel, dish cloth and potholder per house (that we visit)

God has opened a door for us to be used in this village where we built the first church and the school is located–and our desire is to keep working there in various ways until He redirects us.  Please be in prayer as we work these last two months in preparation for August 30!

ONE LAST THING:
We are taking New Testaments in Spanish to be distributed again–what a joy it was seeing them receive their first Bible!

For each $2, you can buy a New Testament.  You can put the Word of God in the hands of someone who has never had their own, and very possibly may never have their own copy without our help.

Can you help?  Anything you do will make a difference.

I would like to challenge you who have kids–let them be a part of helping other kids around the world.  Show them the pictures from some of my past Mission Blogs and let them see the faces of those we will be visiting.  Let your kids help choose the pencils and crayons.  Let them help mail the box, or deliver the box!  Then when we get there, and I start taking pictures and capturing smiles, come back here and let them see the “more” the world is made of…and I bet you can capture a smile in your midst…

To mail donations or a package:  
P.O. Box 40
567 Main Street
Chipley, FL  32428
Attention:  Mission Bolivia 2014

We look forward to hearing from you!
