I'll Explain....

As most of you probably know, I have felt the Lord leading me to work with His children for a long time. I’m not sure exactly what that looks like, but God has been faithful in providing opportunities to follow Him down that road.

As you may or may not know, it is almost mandatory for missionaries to have blogs. Haha, not really but I have been reading different blogs over the last few months, and have really enjoyed getting to see how God is working in other people’s lives and ministries through these blogs The goal of this blog is just to keep you all updated, and hopefully to encourage you by sharing what the Lord is doing, and the beautiful things He has made! (If  anyone reads it :))

This summer I have the opportunity to spend the summer in Cochabamba Bolivia working with Casa de Amor, and the beautiful children that live there. I had the opportunity this last summer to spend time working in an orphanage in Bolivia called Casa de Amor (House of Love). Casa de Amor is really made up of four homes, a baby home, girls home, boys home, and a family home, made up of an American family and Bolivian children. While I was there last summer, I had the opportunity to live with the older kids at what was called Casa 2. For a month and a half I was able to live with 13 kids, ranging in age from 3-9.!

The children are cared for by wonderful Bolivian women who the kids call Tia (Aunt), and receive the best care possible. However, while all of their physical needs are met, these children can always use more people in their lives to care about them and give them the attention they desire. While I was there I helped with household chores), and just spending time with the kids, sharing the love of their Father with them.

I would like to ask for your support, not only financially, but in prayer. We serve a powerful God, who is able and willing to provide for His children. I pray that you all also, as children of God, would know His love in a real way.

Thanks for reading!
