God amazes me... alot!

I'm back. :) We had an AwEsOmE time at the beach (Destin), and got home Friday. It was so great seeing Mike and Amber!!  The beach was beautiful, but I am not going to talk about the beach or our vacation.

The last time I skyped with Auntie Joy (If you don't know her read this post :) she told me she was going to get all the filipino kids from the C.O.T.W. together for like a reunion, and she might be able to let my mom and I skype with them!! I was so excited. She said she might do this in May so all through this month I have thought about it.

The day before we left for Destin my mom got a messege from Joy that said  " Please be on skype tonight. I have a suprize. :)". I was crazy excited!

Of course we got on skype that night. Can you guess what the suprise was? She ( because she is awesome) let all the filipino ( C.O.T.W.) kids skype with US!! Guys, it was so great!! We had not heard these kids voices (and some not even seen their face) in two years. They were so sweet!! It was so great hearing them laugh! They have grown so much!

This is me with some of the girls( March 2010). I skyped with the three girls in white ( and a few others) . 
This is them at the reunion about a week ago. The girl on the left ( Venus( I skyped with her too :) is not in the last pic but the other two girls are. They are all so beautiful!!

God amazes me with how He allows me to keep in touch with these awesome kids. I am so thankful! I am so thankful Joy and Josh (another chaporone that is in the Philippines) let us skype with the kids. We were just some weird people that followed their tour. :P 

And to think we almost didn't go back to church that night in October 2009 when they first came to our church. So many things would be different . . . I probably wouldn't be sponsoring my Jazzy girl.. . . We would not be nearly as involved in Compassion. 

God can change the way you think in just a minute. He has totally changed my world through these kids. He might use other things to change you but this is what He used for me, and I am thankful He did! 

All for Him,
