Desires of my heart |8-8-15|

Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart.
— Psalm 37:4

Lord your timing is SO perfect! wow. Today worked out so perfectly!! I got to see the birth of my niece without having WiFi all day and with the time difference it all worked out. With God there is no time difference His timing is… PERFECT! Today was the 35th anniversary for the Jocum (YWAM) base in Belem. We spent most of the day celebrating and attending classes. After that we drove to a church in Belem where Joy will speak tonight. Throughout the day I had to put my trust in God and let Him take control. I tried WiFi at the base.. but no luck. After arriving at the church, Igor happened to ask if they had WiFi and yes they did.. Not only WiFi but FAST internet. Calling at 7:10pm (3:10pm medford time) the baby was about to be DELIVERED, wow I’m so blessed by God, only 2 4 minutes later baby Mackenzie Marie Vargas was born. 

 

He made everything come together for me, for my desires to make me happy. It goes to show you every moment in life has been planned. Down to the second you take a gasps of air, God is behind every step I take. God has planned my w h o l e  entire life (insert mind blown). From knowing this I can put my trust, hope, and faith in HIM and only Him.

Mackenzie Marie Vargas- A c o r u a g e o u s  lover. This is the Lord’s baby, and I saw Jesus wrapping His whole body around her protecting her from the world. Wow what a precious sight.

Now that auntie is back in Southern Oregon, I get to have fun with Kenzie. Which means photographing and kisses these sweet cheeks all day long. 

To know God

My adventure with Jesus has been one giant G L O R Y bomb! Exploding with tons of love, and break through.

|| Week 8_Co-Create_Joseph Avakian ||

Life is like a blank canvas. We have so many options and decisions on how to fill in the frame. Myself as a photographer I get to choose the subject in front of my lens. Yes I will make mistakes. Yes I will fail..and from every failure there’s a lesson that is taught. Joseph taught on his success with the Lord, and how simply he pulls Jesus into his art work. He taught us to co-create with God. How? Invite Him. Ask for ideas, ask to see what He wants you to see. Give me your eyes Jesus. This week has opened my eyes. Opened my eyes to dream big, and to capture the beauty this world has to offer. 

T U N E into His Voice

 

Week 9 & 10| Outreach training

In only 6 days, I’ll be leaving to Brazil.. wow. My lecture phase has flown by. Week 9 was cooperate week, were all the DTS came together. We learned how  to make disciples, and to keep the gospel simple. To Go, Gather, Pray, and Guide. || Cross Culture with Andrew + Terry York || This past week made me so pumped for Brazil. I learned much about culture and how my culture defines ‘who I am’. More importantly that “There is beauty in being different”-Terry York. They taught on how to respect others and how our comments is how we judge the culture. In the amidst of it all my heart is to honor and serve.

B.R.A.Z.I.L get ready, we are coming for you! 

Clean fruit

|Week 3|

The start of the week M O N D A Y. Happens to be media day! For our first adventure for the (advanced team) we ended up going to Greenwell Farms Inc the original and one of the first coffee farms on the Big Island. Our task was to capture ‘the life of a coffee bean’. It ended up raining on us, but the memories we made were prime. Rain or shine we had fun, and captured some fun moments. 

After the coffee farm we headed over to the ‘Painted Church’ The creative juices flowed. So much color and detail in such a small church.

If you have been tracking with me. Each week God has given we a word. For week 3 He gave me to bear fruit. To bear new and clean fruit for His glory. Also a word of Unravel. Later to find out week 3 was ‘pure heart’ the authors of the book Tom & Donna Cole. Came in and spoke on the father/mother and any wombs in my past. After the week ended I felt ‘new’. The sins that haunted me I buried at the cross. For bearing new fruit the Lord told me I’m pure, new, and His forever. From this I’m a new Heather Morse. Completely and 100% in love with Jesus.
