Coming Along Beautifully…

So, here’s an official UPDATE of what is going on with the move…

1. Tickets have been purchased for the November trip which I will be meeting the folks from Vida Nueva, researching schools for Jake and looking for a place to live.

2. Garage Sale Fundraiser coming up next weekend! September 16 and 17 7:30am to 2:00pm. 7801 42nd st. Pinellas Park, FL 33781.

3. Dinner/Silent Auction Fundraiser is on November 3 at Bascom’s Chop House at 6:30pm. Please call 727-687-4693 by October 31st to RSVP.

4. The “Why Us?” page has been updated to include a more detailed description of how this huge decision was made. Enjoy!

We are still looking at moving in February, so we are praying all things will continue to fall into place as Beautifully as they have so far!

P.S. I am currently not working as the hours at the hospital have been non-existent for the past month. If anyone knows of a part-time or temporary position, please let me know. I am also willing to babysit, house and/or dogsit if you happen to need it. Thank you!


Ever since I started telling people we are making plans to move to Guatemala, the common request has been “make sure you create a blog and keep us updated on the progress”. Well, here it is!

As you can see, there isn’t much right now, but I hope to update it (as the title states), daily!

As of today…

Tickets for the November trip are booked. I (Jake will be staying home) will be making a trip to Guatemala to meet Pastor Nelson Rivas and his wife Rosemarie and Steven and Pam Kerns from Metro America 020. This will be a great time for me to experience, first hand, their ministry and how I might be able to serve. In addition, I will also be scouting out places for Jake and I to live and schools for Jake. I pray this trip goes well and we can proceed with the plans of moving in February 2012.

In the meantime, I am working with some awesome people regarding different fundraisers we hope to have in the comings months. Please keep your eyes and ears open as I will let everyone know all the details as soon as they are determined.

If you would like to help with any of the fundraisers or have any fundraising ideas, please contact me.

Thanks everybody for your support and prayers!
