Also....a prayer request!!!! While we were at the Tea House with the high school girls....the high school boys were having an activity as well. They went to eat at a Japanese Steak House and played a "hide and seek" type game in the church after that. (they looooove it!) Well, while playing the game....our youth pastor, Jared was chasing after one of the boys. He was turning a corner and his hand got caught on the doorway (the part of the door where the doorknob locks). It was actually his wedding ring that got caught in the door. Well...you know where this is going....with all of his momentum...his finger ripped off! I don't mean to gross you out this morning. My husband was there also, so he helped Jared up, picked up his finger that fell off and took him to the ER. My husband said he had to do all he could not to pass out from looking at all the blood. It was serious. Unfortunately....his finger could not be saved. They did surgery and he will have a nub from the knuckle down on his wedding ring finger. It is so sad! We can't believe it happened. Please pray for Jared and his healing physically and emotionally.

Hi Everyone! I'm here, I'm living, I'm breathing....
I'm Amanda! :o)
All my energy and thoughts lately have been towards our mission trip planning and packing! But I still have to focus on my regular job this week...and I wanted to blog a few times before we leave on Friday!
It's weird to be "unplugged" from everything while out of the country. Technology, social media and TV have become such big parts of our way of life here. It's good to be "unplugged" for awhile!
I will miss y'all though!
This past weekend I took our high school girls from church to a Tea House and Bake Shoppe! It was so fun! None of us had ever been to a tea house before, and it was a neat experience for the girls. I of course ordered some delicious hot tea! And the food was so yummy!!!!! I have some pictures I will post....hopefully tomorrow! lol!! :)
Well, the rest of my week is going to consist of packing and final runs to Wal-Mart for stuff! I wish my suitcases were as cute as these! ha! But you wouldn't be able to fit much in them! We are taking the big daddy suitcases!!!! Plus everyone has to take 2 cases a piece because we are bringing lots of supplies over for the missionaries. I just hope mine is not over the weight limit. I'm always afraid of that. I don't want to be that person in the front of the line trying to cram a bunch of stuff into my
Oh...and Happy March 1st! :) heehee! I love the month of March!
I could really go for a venti latte right about now!!!!!!!
Hope you all have a fantabulous day!
