God sends the rain.

Thursday it rained all day and I mean really rained. The guys were able to finish the 6 benches on Wednesday. Thank you Lord for this special gift. They worked so hard and really pushed themselves to get them finished because they knew the rain was coming. We spent the day with Joe Kim and the kids. We shopped for things to grill and had a late lunch. Several folks played Joker. Just to let you know that there are several of really competative people on our trip. I spent some of the day instant messaging video with Lynn which was good because he had some things that I could help him with. God is so good and know just when things need to happen. I promise you can see him at work if you just look. We really needed a break and it was fun to just enjoy spending time with the missionaries. J.P. had to go back to Ljubjlana for a program that the PTA sponsors. It was called Scary Story Night. He showed the movie The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown. He said that the kids really enjoyed it. Joe grilled chicken, hamburger sauage things, sauage, potatoe salad, grilled vegies and birthday cake for Gene and Becky. Gene's birthday was on Thursday. We ate a late meal for supper. The food is really good and there is something for everyone. I am real pickie about my food but I have tried hard to eat different things. I tried hot pumpkin soup and wasn't real crazy about it. Will post more later. Sending my love, Lori

Seeing more of the beauty

God's Beautiful Creation

The Soca (socha) river. It is so
beautiful. The water is really low
they haven't had much rain.
The girls on the Soca river. We walked down
close to the river to get this picture and it
was really cold.
I can't wait to get back here for some white
water rafting. That is one way that Jo
ministers to the locals.
What a mighty God we serve. We went up
really close to the top of the mountain
about 3500 ft. It was so beautiful I could
hardly speek.
The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Psalm 19:1

We like all sheep

Today God shared with me what sheep really
look like. They are dirty, nasty and they
stink. Yet they are beautiful. We are just like
sheep. We are dirty, nasty and the things
we do really stink until we acecpt Christ.
Has Jesus cleaned you??????
We like all sheep, have gone astray, each of us has
turned to his own way; and the lord has laid on
him the iniquity of us all. Isaiah 53:6

Tuesday's Adventure

Becky and I are standing by a creek listening to
the water run and the bell on a sheep ring.
One of the best sounds I've ever heard.
It was cloudy today and a good bit colder.
Sloven cat fight! Really. The white cat looked
like a bull dog and it really had been in a few
cat fights. It's ears were gone.

Resting in Little Rock

We finally made it to the hotel about 9:30 pm. It has been a real busy day. Trying to get ready to head to Slovenia and watch God share His love through us. I know He has big plans for those special people. Packing: I thought I would pack differently for this trip and you can bet that I did. I got a new backpack and it is so heavy that I am always tipping backwards. LOL It really is hard to pack everything you might need for a 10 day trip in a carry-on bag. Please pray for the Kelley's and the people of Bovec. Also, pray for Heather Chandler she didn't get a good report today. We know that God has a special plan for her. More tomorrow!

Getting Ready

I am trying to get my stuff together and packed. I took off today with the plans to get it all done. For some reason I decided to clean, really clean my house. I moved the fridge out and cleaned behind, under and vacuumed the coils. I cleaned out one of the closets. I really needed to be getting my things together and begin to pack. I didn't get much packing done. Guess I better get up early and get to packing. I am really excited about what God has planned for us on this trip. I am so thankful that He has chosen me to be apart of this team. Please pray for us. We will be leaving Little Rock at 8:55 AM on Saturday. I will keep you all posted on our trip.

Finally Rested

Good Morning, It is Great to be home. We arrived home a week ago tonight and it has taken my body that much time to fully recover. Sorry that I didn't post much while I was away. The computer was hard to come by and the Internet didn't always work. We had an awesome time, learned so much and will never be the same. J. P., Angie and Bethany are the missionary family that we worked with. WOW!!!!! What dedication they have. They have given all of their life, I mean ALL of their life for God. They are truly sold out. Think about it, they leave all of their family and friends in the states, travel to a LOST country send their kids to school in another country, all this to share the Love of Christ. My prayer is that I can be that sold out. I hope to post lots of pictures in the days to come. Please pray for the missionaries in Slovenia. J. P. & Angie Manley, Randy & Joan Bell and Jo and Kim Kelly and their families.
