It's Official......

We said YES to going on a mission trip in March!!!!!! We prayed about it for awhile and feel peace about going. Our church is taking a small group of people to Uruguay. It is towards the bottom of South America. You can take a look on the map I posted. What is really cool....is Tim and I have been to Uruguay before in 2007 on our very first mission trip! It will be so neat to return there. We are sooooooo excited to go!!!!!!! I couldn't wait to share this with you all!
This is Tim and I in Uruguay in 2007!!!! We look pretty young I think! hahaha!

Tim with some of the children we met.

This is a picture of one of the homes.
Me with a precious little girl....I think her name was Jessica.
I am so thankful that we have the opportunity to go again. It has been a long time since our last mission trip. It was a hard decision to make because it is so expensive to go. But we really felt peace about going and I know that it will all come together. We have already started to plan some ideas of how to make some extra money. Babysitting anyone? lol!
Well, I just couldn't wait to share this news......YAY!!!!!!
(p.s. my poor hubby had a root canal at the dentist today! that does not sound like fun and he is super duper sore. anyone had one of those before? yuck!)
(p.p.s we really needed to go to the grocery store....so we got creative with our dinner tonight....we ended up creating an omelet!!!! ha! it was pretty good. we had some peppers in the fridge and some turkey sausage. not too shabby!)
It's almost the weekend! Hip Hip Hooray!
xo,
Amanda

That is so great!! I went to Haiti a long time ago on a mission trip and it was so special. I would love to take another trip! Hope your hubby feels better- I've had a root canal and it is no fun!

You guys are such inspiration for me, I was just thinking today that I just wish I had the time and resources to REALLY help people. You are two of God's disciples and everyone should take a page from your book!! :D

Awesome! It will be so neat for you to return there! Shon & I went on a mission trip in high school to Monterrey, Mexico---I think about it often and would love to return there someday just to see it again.

SO excited for you...esp going back somewhere you've already been...will you be able to see some of the same kids? That would be so cool!
Awww, omelets...the perfect "need to go to the store, so we'll stick in everything we still have in" meal...love it!
Lots of TLC for the hubs after a root canal, poor baby!
