Hey, Friends! This weekend is Leader Training for my program, meaning I'm working straight through the weekend. It starts on Thursday, but I'll be away from my computer most of Wednesday. Needless to say, I won't have time to blog. I plan to be back next week though!
So, I wanted to let y'all know about this awesome opportunity I have coming up! If you receive my email updates or read my missions blog, then you already know. But I wanted to tell everyone else as well.
I'm going on another trip, much like the one I went on to Peru in February. This one is again to South America, to a country I've never been to. I'm going to Bolivia! WOOHOOOO!!!!!
I don't much much except for the dates (April 25-May 3) and that we'll be staying in the Andes Mountains (which I'm so excited about!). My job is to do what I do best: missions and writing. I'm going to meet people, love on them, and tell them about Jesus, to observe Bolivia, learn about the culture, and bring it back to tell y'all, better help train the Bolvia team this summer, and write about what I experience there. Oh yes--and my "husband" (camera) is coming too. He'll make sure to document the trip for you. :0)
I'M SO EXCITED!!!!!!
Please be praying for me as I go. There's a lot to do in preparation, travel, etc. I still need financial support--a little over $1000--and can keep raising that after the trip if I need to. (The amount I am raising a month doesn't include overseas missions. Just rent, utilities, gas, food, etc.). For those of you who’ve prayed about/mentioned occasional one time gifts, this is a good time for that. Just go to http://www.adventures.org/give, click on the “AIM Staff” link, and type my name when asked. Or you can snail mail to: Adventures In Missions, Inc., P.O. Box 534470, Atlanta, Ga. 30353-4470. "Kristen Torres-Toro" needs to be on the memo line and all checks need to be made out to Adventures in Missions.
I'll see y'all Monday for my final week of posts before Unplug Week and then Bolivia! Have a great weekend!
