Pray For Our Own Little Missionary, Julie

Thursday, October 18, 2007

Hi folks, I haven't had a lot of time lately to blog - when I am at home I end up "vegging" on the couch. But I'm doing great health wise - thanks to my Lord and my "Pilgrim Pals" for their prayers.Three weeks to my departure for "Mission Mexico City 2007"....November 11 to 17...not a very long mission but an intense one nonetheless.Blessings,Julie

In early November I will go on my 6th mission trip - my 3rd trip to Mexico City. While there I will minister with a team made up of Canadians, Americans and Mexicans - it is the most beautiful experience to work along side Christians from various backgrounds and cultures! We will minister in a garbage dump (one of about 15 around Mexico City) where approximately 15,000 people live and work - yes, they work - recycling garbage - tons of it! In the picture with me is Clara - just one of the special children I've met in the garbage dump. The team will also visit an orphanage.

Romans 10:14How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?
15And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things.

Little Missionary...May the Lord lead the way and may He be right beside you when you go on this trip...Blessings on you...

Dear Lil Missionary,
I'm thrilled to learn that you are feeling better after a rather steep and tiresome hill climbing this summer and early fall.
I just say Amen and God bless about you spending spare time and money on a missionary trip to Mexico.
Most people, myself included, prefer to spoil themselves in luxury surroundings when in need of a change.
You're going the other way around to a garbage dump. I've seen some TV reports from those places. They are scaring and appalling.
You are a true missionary type.
You're doing like James says in chapter 1:
22Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. 23Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like a man who looks at his face in a mirror 24and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like. 25But the man who looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues to do this, not forgetting what he has heard, but doing it—he will be blessed in what he does.
May God walk with you and reward you with his peace.
From Felisol
