Wonderful Wednesday

 Today was Great!!!! and sad all at the same time. We spent the morning at the Ljubljana city museum and also went to a first century baptistery. It was awesome. There is so much history in this country. J. P. is really excited. He has been working to build a relationship with the folks at the museum. He may even be able to help with a Christian exhibit. This is really big. We also went sharing. Bro. David and I were together today and we talked to several people. One of the young ladies didn't know what a bible was or who Jesus was. This is something we Americans take for granted. We all have a Christian foundation to build from. This just breaks my heart!!!! Robert and Sarah Ellen had an opportunity to talk to two guys who are studying philosophy . John and Dolores talked with a guy who was an atheist. He was very receptive to what they had to say. Grace was with J. P. and they had an opportunity to talk with two young ladies. (We all are talking to lots of folks but these are the ones I think I should share.) During our discussions we are inviting them to come to a meal and a lecture about Primoz Trubar. He is very important to them. Look that up on the Internet and read about it if you have time. Hopefully we will have some interest there. We rode the bus to J. P. & Angie's to have supper and visited with their daughter Bethany. It was a great time of sharing. I just love them. They have committed to give there life to the Lord. WOW 

Question to all of us! Have I committed my life to the Lord? My whole life? Is He the most important thing in my life? If He came back today would He be happy with what I am filling my life with?
Love to you all,
PS: Thanks Lynn for the info it will be a great help. I love you!
Hope to post pictures tomorrow.

I have so much to share.

There is so much to tell you. I hope that I can catch up tomorrow. Please know that we can see God at work. I have seen my eyes open to so many things. Many things about myself. I will share as I have time. Sending love to you and my Awesome family. Lynn, thank you so much for giving me this opportunity. I love you soooooo much.
P.S. These pictures are from Sarah Ellen's camera. Don't have away to load mine.

Our flight to Rome

We flew to Cinncinati, Ohio then to New York, Kennedy then to Rome. It seemed like we were always in a rush to get where we needed to be. We had a little wait in New York, just enough for us to eat.  Getting off the plane in New York the steps were VERY steep. Dolores was going down them first. When I turned to check on her she was at the on the ground on her bottom with her legs in the air. I wanted to laugh but I was afraid she was hurt. Next thing I knew she was up and on her way. SHE IS A WALKING MACHINE. Never missing a beat. The rest of us would ride the moving sidewalks but not her. Who says a 74 year old woman can't go on a Mission with God! We loaded the plane to Rome and I thought WOW. I had never seen a plane that large. Everyone is trying to secure a place to put our carry on luggage. Finally all was placed and we settled in for what I thought was going to be a Great opportunity to get some sleep. NOT! I even took me a little pill to help out. Most of us only got a a little sleep. They never turned the light out.


We're off to see the missionaries, the wonderful missionaries of God!

    This is the information that I had to post from the first day of the trip.
I was awake all night trying to finish everything not wanting to worry about what I was leaving behind. We loaded the car at 4:30 and headed to pick up Dolores. After getting to the church, we loaded the bus and headed to Little Rock. We had lots of help getting our tickets and off to the gates we went. Saying goodbye to Lynn is always so hard. Sarah Ellen didn't know about her 3-in-one bag so we were trying to get her stuff together before we got to the scanner. As we moved to the scanner we removed our shoes and loaded our stuff in the boxes. I was really worried about the liquid make-up I placed in Sarah Ellen's bag. My things scanned and as I was trying to get my shoes the security guard saw me get my carry on bag and called me over to the side area. She wanted to know what was in the Foil Paper. I began to chuckle. Bro. David had requested Dolores to make her famous fudge. She did and wrapped it in foil paper (not  a good idea), placed it in a baggie and put in a bag. Some how it found it's home in my bag. I explained that it was fudge. She took it and my bag and rescanned them then sent me on my way. We have had several laughs over the fudge bomb!!!!


Doberdon, Hello to everyone! Just a little information while we are resting. This is the first day that I have had access to a computer. We are having a great time but are very tired. I can't wait to share with all of you what is going on. Hopefully I will have time tonight to post some pictures and tell you all about it. I will tell you a funny story. Bro. David ordered fudge from Dolores. She made it and wrapped it in foil and put it in a plastic bag. I ended up with it in my carry on bag. While we waited in line for our turn I was helping Dolores (AKA Sister) and Sarah Ellen not really paying attention to my things. We loaded our things into the boxes and sent them through the scanner. They pulled me aside and wanted to know what was in the foil. I started laughing and tried to explain what was in there. She took it out scanned it and rescanned my bag. They let me through and I got to keep the fudge.  Hope you all laugh as much as we did. Thank you all for your prayers and support. Continue to pray that God will use us.

Two more days!!!

Good Morning, It's about 3:20 AM and I've been up since 2:00. Getting ready for that Sloven time. We have two more day before we leave and I am no where near ready. Haven't packed the first thing. I hope to finish the things at the store today and be completely ready by Friday afternoon. Please begin to pray for our trip. Pray for safe travel and pray that we may touch the hearts of someone and be able to share Christ with them. Also pray for Lynn while I am away. For those of you that may not know I am leaving with a group of 6 others from Central Baptist headed to Ljubljana, Slovenia via Rome for 10 days. Have a Great day. With love

New to blogging

Good Morning, I just wanted to fill you in on how this blog got started. My daughter-in-law, Laura has the most precious blog. So I started thinking about setting one up. After much thought I decided that I would set it up before I left for the September, Slovenia mission trip. So here it is. I don't really know much about blogging however I hope to learn. Thank you for taking the time to share a little of my life. May you know the love that only God can give. Lori
