Eugene Fundraiser for My Girl Kristin:

I scooted over to Eugene yesterday to spend some time with my kids and to help support my daughter Kristin at her fundraiser to help her go on a medical mission trip to Guatemala next year.  It was so much fun see everybody.  It did my heart good.

Hi Kathy - I'd like to hear more about Kristin's trip to Guatamala. How long will she be there?

Your Auntie must be a very pretty lady if you look like her. You've got such a great smile! You always look so happy in your pics.

Hi Lisa,

Mom has been going for many years; Ethan has gone 2x and will go again in Feb., and this will be Kristin's second time. They go for close to 2 weeks. Kristin and Ethan will be installing cook stoves and concrete floors. Kristin worked in the dental clinic last time. Mom is a RN and works in the medical clinic. Here is a link to my Outreach blog that tells more about it. My friend Gwen is on the first part of it, so keep scrolling down to learn about the Helps International and CMT.

Oh, and thanks for the compliment! I'll post a pic of her sometime.

What do you think concerning adding some more illustrations? No offence, blog is really nice. But as I’ve heard visitors acquire information much more efficient if there are certain useful pictures.
