Let's go to Peru!

Tomorrow...
The Compassion Bloggers are headed to Peru. The amazing thing about this is, you and I can travel along... from the comfort of our own homes! I am excitedly following along and looking forward to reading the blog posts this week. I hope you will follow along too!

Their stories are the closest you will get to experiencing the ministry of Compassion International other than actually going yourself. If you are on Twitter, you can follow them here.

Yes! I am looking forward to this week...
And seeing what God has in store, not only through the stories that will be written by the Compassion Bloggers... but also with regards to a significant potential change in my life!

Friends, it's going to be a good week... because we serve a good God! 

As I continue to count grace-gifts, with unending thanks... to The One who is always good... these are the things I am thankful for this week... #1640 - #1648:
:: My girl's school basketball team is in the playoffs!
:: Our Lead Pastor taking the time to come and watch one of my girl's games.
:: Excitement for our church's newest mission.
:: Great progress with my son's Robotics Team!
:: Both kids enjoying a great Fall Retreat with our church's youth group and coming home resolved to "pray with windows wide open"... just like Daniel.
:: Time over the weekend to do some baking!
:: Shaken by the documentary Nefarious: Merchant of Souls and looking for opportunities of how we can be involved in the fight to end modern-day slavery.
:: Inspired by the Multiply webcast with Francis Chan and David Platt.
:: This warm mid-November Monday!
Happy Monday, friends!
... to give thanks is an action and rejoice is a verb and these are not mere pulsing emotions. While I may not always feel joy, God asks me to give thanks in all things, because He knows that the feeling of joy, begins in the action of thanksgiving.
~ Ann Voskamp, One Thousand Gifts.
Let's soar into this new week together, friends... let's do justice, love mercy and walk humbly!

Compassion is a command, an act of worship, a song of thanks to Him.
Do justice. Love mercy. Walk humbly with God!

    1. Wasn't it incredible. Yes, lots of process & put into action! I feel like I need to watch it again, just to absorb everything.
