happy belated birthday dear pilgrim pal julie
little missionary julie or little big missionary julie,as felisol calls her, has been a beloved pilgrim pal since a few weeks after david fisher created the pilgrim pals blog in 2007.
one evening without warning she popped into our lives and our lives haven't been the same since!
she is an ottawa girl who loves the spanish speaking people and who has often used her work holidays to visit mexico and be a missionary. this has always been the burning desire of her heart ....to be a missionary.
following is a post that little missionary julie wrote for the pilgrim pals encouragement one day.
"When I woke up this morning I was faced with a choice - to go to church or laze around the apartment. Being single, I often do not feel accountable to get up and get going. Hey, after all, I thought, it's a beautiful, sunny day - why not go to the beach or just sit on my balcony and read the Bible and other Christian literature. God wouldn't mind - He knows I love Him! I'll honor him with my prayers and worship at home. Then something occurred to me - corporate worship is powerful and brings honour to God. So, off I went to church and it was a beautiful time of worship - the power of corporate praise - wow!! Can't wait until we get home - to Heaven and sing His praises forever.....Holy, Holy, Holy - worthy is the Lamb!"
now the little guy in this picture is his mama's pride and joy and when he, alfie her bunny heard about his mama's birthday, he immediately got a gang of his ottawa friends together to go to her birthday party where ever that was, eh?
he even wore his fancy mexican hat!
this bunny was ready to party..
now it was pilgrim david that blew the whistle this time.
i am late, as you can see but i guess better late than never, wishing this dear special girl a happy
this, written by david sums up what we all think about julie and how we pray for her,

Missionary To Mexico...Our Own Julie
Dear Pilgrim Pals:
One of our own left early this morning to serve the Lord in Mexico on a short-term basis. Our Little Missionary, Julie, will be helping out at an orphanage and sharing the love of Jesus with everyone she meets.
Let's commit to pray for Julie every day! Let's make sure she is covered by God's protection so that Satan, that thief and liar, won't be able to touch God's anointed.
Thank you for standing with Julie! Pray that this trip will strengthen her faith and that God will use her in a powerful way to touch the lives of others.
THANKS SO MUCH!
The Pilgrim, David
happy, happy birthday little big missionary julie.....love terry
