Gods wonders can be found most in the smallest creatures at rest.
Take the time to be one with God and enjoy the world around you while listening for His voice.

"Come unto me, all who are weary and heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and lean of me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light."
Matthew 11:28-30
God is there for you. Just call out to Him.

You don't always think of birds as being hunters, but the baranquero likes a little mouse,
smaller bird, or even a little steak for dinner.

The students call these Mr. and Mrs. Carpenter since these are "carpinteros"
the Spanish word for woodpeckers. Unlike us, they look like clowns and
are loud, though we both do like corn!

The birds are just so diverse that we seem to see a new one every time we turn around.
There is a wonderful restaurant in Carlaca that has a bird sanctuary in it where you can
eat a wonderful meal in a tranquil environment, watching the birds.


If they didn't want their pictures taken, they wouldn't pose for them!

Don't copy the behavior and customs of the world but let God transform you into a new person
by changing your way of thinking. When you find yourself in situations where you are frustrated
and need things to change but things seem out of your control, you have to change the way you
look at and deal with the situation. Satan lives to mess with
you and put
challenges and frustrations in your path, but God is there to give you strength and guidance.


Peachtree Mission Kids raised $250.00 to help needy kids in other countries by making and selling jewelry and crafts. With that money, Carpsonamission was able to provide school clothes and personal hygiene items for 17 kids from a poor community in Colombia that is part of a social outreach program at PIBA (First Baptist Church of Armenia)

The kids were very excited and thanked God that kids like them were willing to work and raise money to help them.

These are some of the kids PCC was able to help!


The bags each included two school shirts, soap, shampoo, socks, underwear, lotion, powder, and a little bag of candy. Nine of the kids were present at church on Sunday to receive their package. The rest  will receive theirs this week.


Being surrounded by so much nature and beauty, I am reminded that God wants to spend time with me. We all have busy schedules and so much going on that our minds always seem to be racing from one task to another. God is the one who equips us to face the day so don't skimp when it comes to the time you spend with Him.


 As we end to the end of the third quarter and look forward to Easter, the seniors are counting the days and
the rest of the students have to be reminded that there is still a lot of work to do. We are starting to get
things in motion for our move to Guatemala. It is always exciting to look forward to new things but
there is still a lot of opportunity here that we need to not overlook. I constantly remind myself that you
can think about the future but you need to live in the present!


For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works,
which God prepared in advance for us to do Ephesians 2:10).

We need to remember that we are workers for God and not just people with jobs. I know about this time of year
I start to get frustrated with the students and have to remind myself that it isn't the material that
I teach that is really the priority, but my attitude and character that have a more lasting impression.
Kids will learn what they need to know eventually -- either the easy or hard way --
but the difference in their lives are the relationships and life lessons they get along the way.


I always tell people when they ask me about Colombia that is one of the most beautiful places I've lived and that is true. On a daily basis, it is like a summer vacation attitude every day, only interrupted by having to go to work!


It is amazing that in a period of 15 minutes, you can see this much variety, and, the fact that it is only
the tip of the Creator's fingertip that you've seen so far!



"For I know the plans I have for you,’ declared the Lord,
  plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future" (Jeremiah 29:1)

Our desire for you is to see God's plan for you revealed in your life and to take hold and embrace and enjoy it, knowing it was designed especially for you. Look forward to each day and see it as a new chance to see what God has in store for you. He will keep giving you chances as long as you ask for His guidance and desire to follow His lead.
