Hope everyone had a great Christmas. Mine was great. I had arranged for Eric's dad to come and visit us for Christmas which was a surprise to Eric. When Eric got home from work on Wednesday and found his dad here, he was so shocked. It was great! Eric hadn't seen his dad since last November. Since we decided to go to Liberia this year we didn't make it out to Texas. Well it was a great present for both Eric and his Dad. I'm glad I was able to do it. We spent Christmas Eve at Grandma Mary's house and Christmas morning at my mom's house. We stopped by Grandma Evelyn's before we headed home on Christmas day. In the evening we had a few friends over to play games. It was great to spend time with family and friends this holiday season!
Have a safe and Happy New Year!

My Grandma is awesome! She cooked two turkey's this morning. One for everyone to eat and the other because Eric wanted to be sure we had leftover turkey. Besides the turkeys she made the rest of the side dishes. I am so thankful for such a beautiful and giving Grandma.
This Thanksgiving I just want to say that I am very thankful for my Grandma. She has been a great roll model in my life. She gives of herself like no other person I know. After my Dad passed away she has always made sure that I was taken care of and before that she took care of my dad. As an adult I am very thankful to have her as my friend. I love to spend time with her whether we are on one of our crazy shop hop days where we visit 10 craft stores in one day, or we work on our paper crafting projects at my house or hers, or we just spend time with one another.
My grandma always has time to listen to me ramble on about things and later ask me how it went or how the person is. She is just genuine. I know she loves me because she is one of my biggest fans. She helps me, inspires me, pushes me to achieve more in life, and she helps me with my side business. Always looking out for new customers or getting sales for me.
Grandma I couldn't imagine not having you in my life. I am truly blessed to have you in my life. I could never thank you enough for all you do for me. Thank you Grandma! I love you.
I am thankful for my Husband, you are the greatest husband Eric. I love you and I am thankful to have such a great best friend to spend my life with.
I am thankful for all of my family, my Mom, my 6 Sisters, my Brother, Nieces, Nephews, Grandmas, aunts, uncles, extended family and my church family. You all inspire me. I love you and I am thankful to have you in my life.

This is a picture of Eric and I at the church Eric preached at on Sunday. The church purchased these Liberian outfits for us. They had us put the outfits on and show them off. It was supper hot and Eric and I were already very sweaty and then we added the additional clothing. Boy were we burning up. It was very nice of them to give us these clothes.

We spent the last two days running all over Paris. My feet hurt! We saw as much as we could in the little time we had there and we also tried to get some shopping done. We rode the Metro all over the place and getting back to Brussells for our flight we had to drag our suitcases on the subway with us, up and down stairways, off and on the the subway within seconds before the door closed. It was hectic and exciting.
I am glad to be on my way home. I will share picture soon. I can't wait to show the picture of Eric and I in our African clothing. I love to travel but there is no place like the good ol' USA!

We finished the crusade on Friday night.There were thousands of people in attendance! I'm not sure on the numbers of those filled with the Holy Ghost (it was over 1,000 as of Thursday) and those Baptized in Jesus name. I will have to report that later. Thursday night during the crusade it began to sprinkle, the clouds above were black so we prayed for God to stop the rain. He is faithful, the sprinkles stopped and not another drop of rain was felt until we had finished the service and then came the rain. What a miracle!!
Yesterday was the dedication service of Hope Center. What a touching and powerful service we had! While in service the found and killed a cobra snake right outside the church.Thank God no one was hurt. It was a long ride home with 7 ladies squished into the cab of the truck but we made it back safely.
Bro. Stewart made us an excellent meal, a casserole and his famous Texas cowboy beans. Yummy!!!
Well I can't wait to share pictures with all of you. I will be home soon. Grandma don't forget to pick us up :o)
Sis. LaVerne wants me to wish Sis. Gloria a Happy Birthday, Happy 70th Birthday!!!
See you all soon.

Monday we had a devotion and then we went shopping downtown. There were so many people on the streets, I think they may have multiplied in the past two years. We got a look at the Hotel that we stayed at last time and it looked horrible. I am very thankful for the change in hotel this time. Its in a better location and the generators have only gone out a couple of times but only for a few seconds. Everyone was getting there shopping done because it was the only day we had to shop, the rest of the week is pretty packed with stuff to do. I got to help haggle some prices in some shops since I had experience on what some of the items cost. I knocked over a bunch of items in one of the stores, Eric wasn't too happy about that because he thought we were going to have to buy everything, luckily the items were all wood carvings so there was nothing broken.
It was a great day of shopping and then we went to the Stewart's for dinner, yummy!!
Tonight was the first night of the crusade, wow!!! What a great time. I had to get up and pray for the offering, the gentleman leading just called me out and said you come and pray for the offering. Good thing I'm not that shy! A group of us sang, spur of the moment. Pastor and Bro. Brandon preached and God moved in a great way! Thank you Jesus for the good weather tonight. There was a lovely breeze and not to many bugs! Yea for that! The new people on this trip are getting spoiled. LOL!
Well I just wanted to let everyone know that we are doing fine, we are having a great time. I will try to post again soon but it is hard because the Internet connection is very bad. I've been trying to post since yesterday but every time I got on the computer it would go down or the generator would go out.
Remember to keep us in your prayers!
Love sent from Liberia,

I just want to thank everyone that helped us in our fundraising for this mission. We are excited to see what God is going to do in Liberia.

Earlier this week I said that I would try to give a sneak peek of some of the cards for my card class this Saturday. Here are two of the cards that I made last night. I used a couple of the new stamp sets out of the mini catalog, Seasons of Friendship and Winter Post. (You should have received your mini catalog by now. If you haven't contact me and I will get you one.)
Tonight my schedule will consist of my card prepping for my class tomorrow morning at 10:30 AM and some house cleaning! I am excited for the class tomorrow because that means I get to hang out with some great friends, make cards, and have good conversation.
I am truly happy that I found
paper crafting as a hobby. I never thought of my self as a crafty person but now I guess most people would say that I am. I wish I would
scrapbook more so I could actually finish my wedding scrapbook but oh well, it will get completed one of these days. I'll try to remember and take pictures tomorrow as we celebrate National Card Making Day.
Go LA Dodgers! (I'm a Dodger's fan)

There were many cars that slowly drove past us and stared. I'm sure they were thinking that these kids had gotten in some sort of trouble and had to do community service but I am glad to know that they were there just to be a servant to our community. A servant's heart is priceless! Way to go N'Focus!!
We must have picked up about 8 full bags of trash. There was more trash than I thought out there. It took us about an hour and a half to complete our task. In the end I think that Texas Street looked so much nicer!
Picture: Stacey, Roberta, Melissa White, Selena, Lindsey, Lauren, Alison, Melissa Nava, Nathan, & Patricia.
Not Shown: Estephan and Rose
After I got done with the trash pick up I got changed and headed for Disneyland. I just love Disneyland and my annual pass is about to expire so I need to get my last couple of uses out of it. I will definitely get a season pass again but not until the new year.
My dear friend Chris went along with me. Just the two of us. It was a nice day and I had fun just admiring the Halloween decor, getting on the rides, and enjoying a day with my friend. Thanks for coming with me Chris!!
This Saturday is World Card Making Day so I will be prepping for my card class this week. I will try to post a sneak peak of the cards we will be making so make sure to check back. Have a great Tuesday!!

This weekend we had a youth revival with Bro. Jacob Pereida. We had a great time this weekend with powerful services each night. Bro Jacob preached messages that moved each person to a new level with God. Thank you Bro Jacob for allowing God to use you! It was a blessing to have you here this weekend.
I also want to thank each and every adult that that attended our youth revival and for being here to support N'Focus Youth Ministry. Your love and willingness to support the youth is greatly appriciated.
N'Focus, lets keep living for God! Keep that spirit of prayer that you had this weekend and lets continue to grow! I love all of you!!!

Well I will appriciate your prayers as I study to get the license to drive the 25 passenger bus. I believe there are about 3 or 4 different test that I will have to complete in order to drive so it might be a few months before it comes to pass but I am looking forward to doing this.
Have a great weekend! Oh and Stamp Club members don't forget we have Stamp Club this coming Tuesday at 7:00 PM at Maria Villarreal's house (my Grandma's).

My next card class will be on Saturday, October 4th in the morning. I am having this class on a Saturday because that is National Card Making Day, so what better way to celebrate than to make cards!
I will be having a scrapbook class in September, check out my website for the date and times.
I spent most of my day scrapbooking with my Grandma Mary. Someone from work asked her to make a scrapbook for her grand baby and she would pay for the materials and for my grandma's time. My grandma being the great woman that she is called me and said that whatever she earned from making the book she would donate it to our Liberia Missions Trip fund. Thank you Grandma! You are the greatest, I couldn't have asked for a better person in my life. I love you!!
We were able to get most of the book complete today. Her friend at work is going to be surprised on Monday. I hope she likes all the pages we did.
OK, off to bed it is already after midnight and I have church in the morning. Good night!

Now it is time to work! I am back to at work this morning catching up. I also started prepping for my card class on Thursday. I have two of the cards done for the class and maybe a third one, depends on whether or not I can come up with anything different or cuter. So tonight I must work on my cards so that I can have them done by tomorrow night. The most time consuming thing will be cutting all the material, although it looks like I will be having a little smaller group this Thursday then most card classes I have. Hopefully my latest order will get here by Thursday so I can give my club members their order.
Well I hope you all have a wonderful week! Back to work I go....
