La di goes on. :)

Ok, the tears have been wiped....and this is about to be one random post. But I am a very random girl...and this is how life goes on. {smile}

Here are some fun pictures before the trip:

The very ungoldy hour of 5am on the bus to the airport. Bloggy friends in case you do not know Lisa, author and coordinator of She Seeks and Samantha from the P31 office.

I had FULL intentions of documenting this entire trip.

But apparently I forgot to charge the battery on my camera before we left. Boo for me. Or MAYBE the fact that Lisa and I took this picture no less than 20 times had something to do with it dying. You need to know that us She Seeks girls were VERY thankful for the delete option on the digital camera. And we may or may not have looked at EVERY.SINGLE.PICTURE throughout the trip and taken votes as to whether or not the picture could be deleted.

I didn't win very often. [wink]

Here are a few of our new friends:

And us...I don't know what we were doing. :)

Me and Lisa with one of the amazing pastors from El Salvador. This is their farm where they are raising animals to help fund their church. It's pretty awesome!

Saying good-bye to the kids at one of the projects we visited.

This was a huge moment for me. This girl who prayed over me was precious. And what you can't see in this picture are the tears that were POURING from my eyes. God really began to break my heart for the Compassion kids at this moment.

And these guys are SO COOL! Bloggers meet Two Cent Offering. They are AWESOME. I can't wait to see where God takes this band but He's got great things planned for them and it was such an amazing thing to hang out with them for a few days. You can find them on facebook and listen to their music! SOOOO COOL!
Ok and It's me. A gazillion feet up in the air. ON A ZIP LINE. Have mercy!! It was one of the greatest thrills I've EVER experienced! If you ever get the chance to do it!

Ok, so that's enough random thoughts from El Salvador and the last post on that trip. I's enough. :)

Nicki, the pictures tell the story! Thanks for sharing. I especially was touched by the faith of that gal who looks like she is a teenager praying for you. God is moving in El Salvador for sure!

What did we do before the "Delete" button?

I love the picture of you girls laughing! Awesome!

The picture of the girl praying over you & your face.... I saw it before reading what was going on & I instantly teared up... I can see & FEEL the emotion of this picture... how amazing...
