Mail Call Catch Up!

As mentioned in my previous blog, I have been very busy with parent-teacher conferences and midterm report cards. I finally have time to update on 2 of the letters I have received from my dear Chatchai from Thailand.

This one was dated October 26, 2011 and was received January 14th, 2012.

Dear Maria,

Hello. I am a volunteer writing for Chatchai because he can't write by himself. The following message is all from him.
 He is glad to receive your letter. How are you and your family? How many brothers and sisters do you have? He and his family are doing well. He has 5 siblings and he is the youngest. Arunee is his older sister. They go to the project on the same day. 
 It's now his school break, but his school is starting soon. It's the beginning of winter here.
Thank you for the bible translation from Timothy 3:16 and Isaiah 55:11. He promises that he will read and share them with his family. He will pray for you and your family. Please take care of your health and please pray for him and that Thailand will get through the flooding crisis.

Love and miss you,


This second one was dated November 28, 2011 and was received February 6, 2012

To Maria,

Hello. I am a project staff writing on behalf of Chatchai because he can't write by himself. He is asking how you are and your family. His family and himself are doing well. He is asking what do you like to do when you are free? He likes to go to the farm with his parents when he is free or during school is closed. He is asking if you could take care of your health. He said he cares about you. He is asking if you could pray for his study and for everyone in his family. May God Bless you!

Love in Christ,


My heart always rejoices when I hear my kids tell me about what they are learning, that they are praying for me, and that they are thinking of me... especially with all the responsibilities and struggles that they face daily. I makes me turn to God with a grateful heart that I was born where I am in the time that I was.

Thank you Lord for your grace and mercy. Please continue to be with the sponsored and un-sponsored children of Compassion International.  I pray that they come to know you and that they grow up to be the men and women of God that you are training them up to be. I praise you and thank you for doing this, in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen!

Rock & Worship Roadshow - "Free Download Alert"

My apologies for these long overdue posts! We had midterm report cards at school and are currently in parent-teacher conference mode. These next few posts will come daily until I catch up to make it up to everyone!

The Rock  & Worship Roadshow was AMAZING to say the least! I went and volunteered with my roommate, Brandy, and her 19 year old niece, Kaela.

We were originally scheduled to work at one of the tables, but ended up helping with the "packet passing." This was awesome because there were members from our church youth group and young adults group there as well! I have never seen so many people in one arena with their hands lifted high - praising God! There were so many artists - one for practically every genre of music. Here are a few pictures of a few... at least the ones that turned out the best.

Moriah Peters


Mercy Me

You can see a complete list of artists as well as the remaining shows for the 2012 season at the Rock & Worship Roadshow website.

Also, I am including a link to a free download from Moriah Peters. Her single is called, "I Choose Jesus." 


Her album is set to be released April 17, 2012. Get her single "I Choose Jesus," at this link now though March 18, 2012.  There will be a box on the left hand side of the website that should direct you to a free download.

Will update soon about Acquire the Fire. Please check back within the next few days!
