We had Benjamin today. I was able to catch up on paper
work type stuff and to start doing some lesson plans
for school for Leah and Deborah.

I have been trying hard to stay ahead because of the
Honduras mission trip. Yes, we are going. The
region that we are going to is stable. The city we are
flying into is not where the military is at. Once we
are in the country we are going into a remote mountain
region. Everything should be fine there. We have a great
team and we are meeting weekly now since we leave in only
45 days from today. I always like to have the house in
order before I go. It is especially important for me this
time since I am going later in the year and it will be
time for school to start back.

Some people have expressed concern over the fact that I am
going on a short term mission trip and doing missions as a
job. I do not feel that when God called me to work with
North American Mission Board that He ask me to stop doing
short term trips. I believe that everyone should do ALL
that God has called them to do!! I believe that being
involved in short term missions continues to allow me the
opportunity to broaden my world perspective. It allows me
to see cultures first hand of people that I work with, to
understand where they are coming from when they come to
America. It allows me to be immersed in the culture and
helps me to learn their language. I prayed alot about my
decision to go on a trip this year. At first, I declined
several trips, one going back to Ukraine- a place where I
feel I have built relationships and have "family." When
the opportunity came up for me to go on a 1 week trip to
Honduras I prayed about what to do. I felt God's calling
to go. Many of the families that we work with in Chamblee
are from Honduras. I knew it would be a shorter, less
expensive trip, and I thought it would be a real God given
opportunity for me to see where some of "my families"
come from and learn about their country and serve in their

My desire in all that I do is to be obedient to what God
has ask of me knowing that one day I will stand before Him
and give an account of my life to Him and what He ask of
