Whatever your cross,
Whatever your pain,
Here will always be sunshine,
After the rain ....
Perhaps you may stumble,
Perhaps even fall,
But God's always ready,
To answer your call ..
He knows every heartache,
Sees every tear,
A word from His lips,
Can calm every fear ...
Your sorrows may linger,
Throughout the night,
But suddenly vanish,
Dawn's' early light ..
The Savior is waiting,
To give you His grace,
And send you His love .
Whatever your cross,
Whatever your pain,
"God always sends rainbows ....
After the rain ... "

Just when you are ready to write off a prayer as not what God has in mind for us He comes through! Brooklyn got into the school that we wanted her in. We got the call yesterday and my girls will be in the same school!!! WOOOHOOO!!! I know that you may not be as excited as me but that takes my stress level down about 10 notches. We will save on gas, I will be more at peace since the girls will have each other, Zach will get to class on time, and the list goes on and on. PRAISE GOD!!

We started out our time with family camp at La Roca. We were able to put on little volleyball, basketball, and soccer clinics throughout the day and participate in the break out sessions they had for the families. Later in the week we took sports to the streets. We went door to door to gather kids to play with us. What a great time we had!
I know, I know! You didn't know has good I was.
You probably didn't know how fast I was either, did you?(sorry the picture is blurred, lightning fast speed you know)
The winning girls soccer team!!
Brandon, Jeff, and Kris worked the boys and everyone had fun!
My crazy husband leaped in the ocean. It was way tooo cold for me.
We got to visit the Incan ruins.
Old Town Lima
Just 100 years ago, born again Christians were hung where this fountain now stands.
It's not every day that you get to stand next to a tank with an armed gunman on top. Thank Goodness!!
What a great trip it was. I hope to show you more pics later. I hope you enjoyed these.
