The Kuna Indians from Panama visited our Church and we were blessed to have 3 wonderful women stay overnight with us. What a great experience! They are here to educate the church’s of America on their mission to outreach to their people and spread the word of God in their country. They are working on translating the old testament into their native language. The average pastor makes about $30 a month. They live in a very remote part of Panama. Much of the terrain is undrivable and they walk to many of their destinations. I love that they wear the traditional garments of the original tribes. They are a strong, proud people. We had quite a few hilarious moments when I tried to use the meager amount of spanish I knew to communicate. We ended up bringing out the lap top and using a spanish conversion program to translate for us. I hope we are honored with many other opportunities to open our home to those in the field serving our Lord.
The History of Us

I wrote a story prompted by my writing group. It's about church, community and racism. Since I published it on my blog I have had so many people reach out with the same shared experience. It's been comforting. Then I found out there is a whole movement of people sharing their stories of leaving church spaces that refuse to respond to racism and injustice. Thank you @thewitnessbcc.

Too close? Just making sure ya'll see these curls. Had my favorite curly girl expert @torrensalicia cut the back of my hair (looser curl pattern) even with the tightly coiled girls at the top. Love the shape that was created. Ima release the desire of length for a fuller style. #curlygirlmethod #natural #innersence
Do not fear. Do not look at the seen but that unseen. Keep your eyes on things above. What is happening in the earth realm is not the end of the story. #kingdomminded #hopeishere #ihearthesoundofvictory #drybonesrattling #elevation
