Why the blog?

I write as the Spirit moves me. I have prayed about what I'm supposed to do with my life a lot. A lot. Writing. Writing is what I believe God is leading me to do. Whether or not He wants me to write for anyone to read is His business. Much of my writing has been therapy for me so maybe I'm the only one who is supposed to read it. So, why the Blog? As a sounding board, a note pad, a place to keep my ideas and thoughts. A place to share and promote my books, and photography. Written prayers, a place to vent. Possibly, even a place for the unknown reader to learn about the love of Jesus.

Hand made Paper from El Valle, Panama

While I was on a Mission trip in El Valle, Panama I helped to move some items for storage.  Among the boxes was a crate full of hand made paper.  Lisa Carter, the missionary who she and her husband had planted the church, told us that her husband, David, taught a man by the name of Lorenzo how to make the paper.  He was going to use the new trade to  earn a living for himself and his family.  There in El Valle is an open air market that tourists come to shop from local artisans.   David and Lisa purchased this batch of paper a while back but as yet had not had the time to do anything with it.   I thought it was too beautiful to sit in storage, therefore, I accepted the challenge of finding good homes for the paper.  Below are a few photos and how to order.  The monies collected from the sale of this paper will go toward purchasing Bibles for the children.    Contact me at freedspirit05@yahoo.com to order.   (UPDATE:  bundles of paper are now available on EBay -. Five posts are listed and more to come.)

Chose your bundle then contact freedspirit05@yahoo.com to order
