The last couple months has been amazing. Still some healing taking place as it has only been less than 2 months since my procedure. But it feels so good to feel good. Pain free, back to normal diet, no need for more test, blood work every few weeks. Life has been amazing.
in the towards the end of April of April I had couple of friends come to visit me from out of state. I was truly blessed. I has such a wonderful weekend with them. Last year we co-lead an outreach to India and Nepal. It’s like we got a second chance, my time in Nepal although also great in several ways was also very difficult as I was severely sick. So this time we just go to hang out, relax by the beach, great conversations, great food. I was truly blessed, a much needed time. They truly blessed me.
And I got to help host my first house build in 2 months on May 5th, which was a huge blessing for me. It truly reminded me that God has done some amazing healing! To be able to have the strength again, without feeling weak or pain. It’s just a reminder that there has been a lot of breakthrough. I’m so excited to be able to be more involved in “Homes of Hope” ministry, seeing families transformed not only with a home but with the love of Christ. Thank you for allowing me to be part of that.
May 5th, first house build in 2 months! so happy!
So since being here in San Diego, and helping in the YWAM San Diego office. Which I do enjoy lending a hand, being able to encourage others to get involved in missions, YWAM, sharing about volunteer opportunities, it’s been great. As you can see, I do spend a lot of time with my family. Which has truly been a blessing to see family and friends as much as I can, especially my nephew and my parents. I get to go see them every other weekend. It can be expensive, please consider financially partnering with me to make this a bit easier. Car maintenance and fuel.
I did have a wonderful time this past Sunday for mother’s day!! It was the first time in a few years I got to be home for this particular Holiday. I was very blessed to celebrate this time with my mom, it was great to see her all smiles, attend a mother daughter dinner on Saturday dinner the day before, and Sunday have some family time. And also my sister in law’s first Mother’s day as well. Such a joy!
Mother’s day weekend! family time (sister couldn’t visit this time, she will soon)
So before I share my big news. It has truly been great o be staying par to my time living in San Diego, and serving in the community. Being able to serve some days at Ronald McDonald House Charities, attend a local bible study, and also volunteer with a ministry called Miracle 139, which is a ministry that serves with children with special needs and their families. It’s been an amazing time to just be connected to the community and give back locally. I was really challenged to not just give internationally but locally as well, and it’s been great!! I wanted to serve here in San Diego, in any way I could. It’s been great!
Giving back to San Diego Community
It’s been more than a year now, putting my health priority. I knew I had to put traveling overseas aside for now, since my health was going thru a critical time last year. God spoke to me very clearly and said I can’t be giving giving all the time, and not receiving. and this wasn’t necessarily a bad thing. I needed to be His daughter, and just rest, recover. And knew my healing would come. It wasn’t all easy. I would hear stories and see photos of all my students and my missionary friends. My heart was longing to be out there, be on the field. I was longing to go to the broken the needy, to share the gospel. I was longing to jump out of my hospital bed those times I was so ill and just go!! But I knew I had to wait. My time would come.
God has been so faithful, He has been constant, His word keeps me going, He stretches me, teaches, shows me, directs me. His promises me keep me moving forward!!
So here I am..this is it!! God has release me to go on my first overseas trip. I’ll be going with my church here in San Diego with the ministry I been volunteering with called Miracle 139. We are going to PERU!! I’ll be going for 2 weeks!! I’m so excited!! August 11th- 20th. We will be helping provide training and resources to a church in Peru for parents whose children have special needs.
* Miracle 139 exists to serve children with special needs and their families by providing support and training locally in San Diego. Improving the lives of children with special needs, by bringing awareness, training and support to developing countries.
So I need your help. The trip is just around the corner, would you prayerfully consider financially partnering with me. It will cost between $1,500-$2,000. This trip means so much to me. Thank you for standing with me, for sowing and making the possible.
