I wanted to bring this post to the fore-front this morning, so we can be praying for Julie as she prepares for her trip....and during the time she is away. May God continue to use her as she pours out His love, hope and blessings to others!

I am off to Mexico City again on a missionary journey from November 9th to the 15th. A good friend is coming with me - it's nice to have a missionary buddy. This is my 7th mission trip - my 4th to Mexico City. We will met up with American team mates and also a team of Mexicans (we couldn't do this without them!). We will minister to the poorest of the poor who live and work (recycling plastics) in a garbage dump. We will also visit an orphanage with over 200 children - many of whom have severe mental and physical disabilities.
This trip was a last minute decision on my part. I felt I really needed to do something I truly get a sense of joy and purpose from. I am so blessed to have good friends who sponsor me financially on each trip - otherwise I would never be able to go.
Dear Pals, please remember to pray for the health and safety of the entire team. These types of mission trips come with many hazards - physical as well as spiritual.
P.S. I know I haven't said much lately about my work situation. Don't want to say too much here, except, I am not back at work and likely won't be for a long time. Please just continue to pray for my healing.
