Taking things for granted

Today my eyes were opened to something everyone should see. My bosses David and Debra and their youngest daughter Felicia just got back from their mission trip to India. We got to see pictures and videos today from their trip.

We are so blessed to live in this country. To be free to worship the one true God. To have clean streets. To have water we can drink without worrying about dying from some disease. Definitely something to think about.

It’s interesting how things turn around. One day you’re incredibly upset with someone. A few days later you’re feeling bad for them and wanting to help them. And then God shows you why. It’s an indescribable feeling.

I went to Kairos this week. I haven’t been since last May. It was, by far, the most amazing worship I have ever experienced. God was ALL up in that place! It was incredible. I will definitely be going back every week from now on. I have definitely needed it.

I am praying for Haiti. They have been hit pretty hard by Gustav and Hanna. Now Ike and Josephine are on their way. Please pray for the people of Haiti, as well as all the missionaries down there. I know there is a mission group going down on Saturday with New Missions. Please pray for their safety.

I am going to Grandma’s Camp tomorrow! I’m excited. Falon will be there, her usual upbeat self, so I’ll definitely be entertained. Hehe.

For those of you who don’t know what Grandma’s Camp is, here is an excerpt from their website.

Grandma’s Love
Hello Friends-
This is a little insight to what Grandma’s Camp is and will be to come!
Grandma’s Camp is run by many giving people. We all have a passion for children and helping the grandparents stay involved with their grandchildrens lives.
Marti Carelli-Gilbert is the founder and visionary of Grandma’s Camp. Have you ever seen the movie “We Are Marshall”? Yes! Great! Grandma’s camp was founded in memory and in honor of Albert Carelli, one of the coaches who perished with the football team in 1970.
Marti found a way to join children with their grandparents and to honor all other grandparents who never had the chance to meet their grandchildren.
Think about how much your family means to you! We know that our family is a very important part of our lives and we cherish the little times we spend. To spend more time with our loved ones is a significant goal of ours!
We are a non profit organization that works hard to fund camps throughout the year through your donations and volunteer work.
We will be posting blogs occasionally so check back with us to find out what’s new! Make sure you check out the video, and make a donation on our site!
Allison Vanderpool and Falon Morel
