Facebook? The New Find my Lost Loved One Search Engine.

Facebook has more than 750 million active members and average person has 130 friends. With all those people I am sure that someone could find a lost loved one. Well, I am one of those people that have seen the benefits of Facebook. I am very thankful to I have reconnected with my younger sister and older brother. It is amazing, they found me on Facebook.  It was after my father passed away when I was eight that I lost contact with my brother and sister. They are well and doing great things in their life. In total I have two sisters and three brothers. It feels great to know where all my brothers and sisters live. I can't wait for the moment in which I get to see them in person. I am very thankful that I can start to build a relationship with my siblings. I know my father would want that.

I'm so glad you found your siblings on facebook. What about your mother if you don't mind, just being curious. As for me facebook has really helped me in connecting with some old time school mates i thought i would never see again. And i have met some positive minded mothers on facebook too.

Hi Asia, I came over from SITS. I'm a new SITStah and thought I would introduce myself.

Yes fb is a greater connector. I am so happy you were able to reconnect with your siblings. Now you can be at peace. God bless and take care.

Godly Women From the Past (Gladys Aylward Part 2)

Quotes from Gladys Aylward
"I wasn't God's first choice for what I've done for China…I don't know who it was…It must have been a man…a well-educated man. I don't know what happened. Perhaps he died. Perhaps he wasn't willing…and God looked down…and saw Gladys Aylward…And God said - "Well, she's willing."
“If God has called you to China or any other place and you are sure in your own heart, let nothing deter you….Remember, it is God who has called you and it is the same as when He
called Moses or Samuel.”

"My heart is full of praise that one so insignificant, uneducated, and ordinary in every way could be used to His glory for the blessing of His people in poor persecuted China."

Malawi Mission Trip 2016

Its been two weeks since I have been back in America after being in Africa. I was able to go on a mission trip to Malawi. Since being back, I am still speechless. I can't find the words to explain my experience of being in Africa. The land is beautiful. The people are beautiful. The food is amazing. Some of the things I can take away from being in Malawi:

1) To be grateful. There were days that we went without running water (could not take showers). I thought to myself that the Malawi people go through this all the time and I still see them praising God. 2) To Pray, Worship and Rejoice always. I need to make up my mind daily to not let the world fill me up. I saw people walking for hours to get to church and while in church service praising God. I need to daily sit at the Lords feet and be with Him praying.  3) I can live without social media. During the trip we did not have much internet and we were okay. Since being home, I have found myself sitting in silence and meditating on …

Journal Entry #14 - Free me up, from the Fear of Rejection

Abba I pray for peace in my heart and mind. I no longer want to believe in the lies that I am worthless, ugly, and slow. I need (want) you to remind me of who I am in you. When I look at my past I see a girl that has been hurt. A girl that was lonely and invisible. Show me Your love for me. Show me that I belong to you

The pain from being rejected still haunts me. My mind is filled with memories of being rejected. There were many times I was called ugly, monkey, slow, made fun of because of my weight and height, I notice that sometimes I would isolate myself from others because I was afraid of being rejected by my peers. What others thought of me, consumed me. I placed more value on what others have said and thought about me then what God says about me, as his child. The Lord has shown me His love and everyday I am learning to lay down the fear of rejection.
