Fundraising for Project CASA is in full swing! We have been blessed to have received about $4,000 thus far of the $37,000 goal. But this week another huge blessing presented itself!

Oreo sleeping in my fruit basket....makes for a super cute centerpiece!

Pumpkins come once a year to Pucallpa in the month of October. All the missionaries here keep a look out for when they are finally spotted in the grocery stores – a glorious display of the round, or...

My sending church and I have an exciting venture to share with ya’ll!

Now in my second year of service to the deaf and hard-of-hearing community at Refugio, it is apparent that the small house I rent on the Refugio campus is unfortunately in a sad state of repair.  Havi...

We had “winter break” from July 26 – August 6, then started classes again Monday August 7. But not all schools started classes again….

I went to Lima for 2 weeks in February and while I was gone, one of the other families that lives here at Refugio house-sat for me and took care of my kitty. After I returned I happened to be in conversation with that same family and my house came up because I had just...

So back in late April, when I was on the brink of a paperwork and mental meltdown, the Lord blessed me (and Refugio) with a helper for the Deaf students! Her name is Maggi!

I have taken over evaluating the students, interpreting for them, working with the teachers that...

In addition to the elementary school that meets in the mornings, Refugio has a high school that meets in the afternoons and a night program for adults that never finished high school but would like to earn their degree.

Last year I had a deaf high schooler that came in...

For 2 weeks in March I had the pleasure of house-sitting for some of my neighbors at South American Mission(SAM). I have always experienced fun adventures while house-sitting, and this time was no exception!
