     In three days we will be headed to Bolivia, South America!!!!  This is my first trip abroad, a part of a short-term mission team and I am super pumped.  I have a general idea of what to expect, yet I have no idea what to expect.  I have no preconceived notions about short-term missions’ trips (abroad) and I know really little about long-term missions.  This trip is going to be super eye and heart opening.  As an elementary school student, I told my parents that I would never go overseas or participate in missions work out of the United States.  Little did I know that God would do work and began to give me a heart for the nations.  God definitely has done all the work and I can now say with full confidence that I am thrilled to be a part of this team heading to Bolivia.  I am excited to see what God has been doing in the hearts and lives of the Bolivians we are going to meet.  I am so blessed to have such an extraordinary opportunity to see His hand at work in another culture.

     One of the things I get most excited about, always, is other people.  I ABSOLUTELY love serving people and getting to know them.  I never tire listening to stories.  My favorite stories are the stories of God's work in lives.  And to hear these stories in another country will be amazing!!!

     Since you get to hear our stories about God's work in our lives and his work in Bolivia, we would be remiss if we did not introduce ourselves.  And if you are praying for us, it might be a bit easier if you had some faces to put with your prayers J

    It should be noted that I “borrowed” these images from somewhere else on the web and they represent images, I hope, that present the best of my friends.
