I love children! They are so insistent! One day, i was sitting on the computer, when one of the Burmese girls that live in the apartment complex that we live in. She came into our apartment and pointed at my camera bag, and pretend to take a picture then pointed at herself.
"You want me to take a picture of you?" i asked.
She quickly nodded. So i took my camera out and began took some pictures of her.
Then my little brother Garrett got a new shirt and pants, and i thought he looked so cute, so i took him outside and took pictures of him.
He told me "Sissa! These pants make my legs warm!!" So cute!
So here are the pictures i took :)
And some more pictures of children

Black & White

I've always loved black and white! I just love the way it looks. So i took some myself while i was bored :) Andi found this really pretty pearl necklace, so i tried to involve them in it. I hope you like them.

And not so black and white :)

How beautiful

One of my favorite verses is Romans 10:15 'And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!' This verse encourages me to keep going. That i will be blessed at the end of this long journey. I love the part How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, because it shows me, that wherever you are going, wherever God is leading you, and you follow, that it is beautiful. Even in the worst of situations, it's beautiful!

Spero Clothing Sale

Even though the title is Spero Clothing Sale...everything was free. My family and i volunteer at The Spero Project. Lately Spero has had SO many clothes!! More then they can handle! So we had the idea to take some of the clothes to Jaime's Landing where we help refugees with English. We had racks lined up and were busy hanging up clothes, but before we were ready, a flood of refugee moms came in. They would pick out clothes, take them home, put them on their children, and come running back to show us them wearing it. We only did kids clothes that day, but soon we are doing clothing for the adults. It was so exciting to see all the happy parents! By the end of the day we helped 44 families, and gave out 800 articles of clothing. Even now when we go over to Jaime's Landing, moms come running out, dragging their child behind them, pointing at their shirt and then at the Language Lab where we held the clothing giveaway. It was so much fun! Here are some of the pictures i took of it.
