Thankful Thursday: Heaven's Trip To Peru


Look at these smiling faces! Over 7,000 received the Lord Jesus Christ as their Savior. Not to mention the deliverance that took place within the teens who went. It is simply amazing how when we obey God and share His precious gospel that He in turn ministers as much to us as He does to those who are hearing His truth.

Heaven was a clown in the drama that they performed almost daily while in Peru. The little children loved it! They would come and try to peel the paint from her face and then some would wipe it on their own. They were so happy to see this ministry come in. Heaven was able to wash and clean lice from some of the children's hair and supply them hair bows and barrets. They went in and helped paint and clean up some of their homes. They ministered in private schools because while she was there the public schools were on strike. She said there were gun shots everywhere but she didn't want to worry me while she was in Lima.

She met great friends. She grew. She heard God's precious voice. She has had a hard time adjusting back to home. It is so easy sometimes to ask why them and not us.

Thank-You all for the prayers. They were answered. God moved. He's still moving. I am so Thankful today that He spoke to my Heaven and that He used her to further His Kingdom. I am so Thankful today for His protection, for His promises. We serve such a Great and Mighty God. He is so worthy of our Praise, our dedication, our love, our obedience. He is worth it all. Sunday at church we sang this song by Chris Tomlin called Glory in the Highest and I feel it fits in perfectly with what I feel right now. So sing with me on Thankful Thursday....

"Glory In The Highest"

You are the first
You go before
You are the last
Lord, You're the encore
Your name's in lights for all to see
The starry host declare Your glory

Glory in the highest
Glory in the highest
Glory in the highest

Apart from You there is no god
Light of the world
The Bright and Morning Star
Your name will shine for all to see
You are the one
You are my glory

And no one else could ever compare
To You, Lord
All the earth together declares ...
Glory in the highest ... to You, Lord

All the earth will sing Your praise
The moon and stars, the sun and rain
Every nation will proclaim
That You are God and You will reign

Glory, glory hallelujah
Glory, glory to You, Lord
Glory, glory hallelujah

Taking care of lice? I had to do that last summer for MY kids. Now I know she wasn't doing that for fun or for her glory. "Whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me," (Mt. 25:40) comes to mind. I just know the Lord was smiling as He was watching Heaven serve Him in Peru.
I had to laugh about her way of protecting you, by not telling you about the gun shots, too. What a precious daughter you have!

Jenileigh - I am so excited that you are sharing with us the trip of your daughter's mission trip to Peru. How incredible that she was willing to follow Him to spread the Gospel. She looks so happy. I know that she will treasure this trip in her heart forever.

Blessings to you and yours :)

That's so neat that your daughter went on the mission trip to Peru. I went on one when I was 18 and it was such a positive influence on the rest of my life. My 13 year-old daughter gets the Brio magazine. She's looking forward to a mission trip in a few years. I heard that this was Brio's last time going to Peru - I where they are going next.
