Monday Morning Mug: Germany

Kimmy LaMee

Germany holds a pretty special place in my heart for two reasons: two trips that were pretty significant in my life began in Germany. The first was a trip to work and serve friends who lived in North Africa who were on a vacation in Germany,  which then led to me joining them and living in North Africa for two years of my life. The second was while living in North Africa, and dating Dan long distance, we met in Munich and took a train through Germany and Italy. It was the first time that I had seen him in 13 months and we still had 10 months to go in our long distance dating relationship. It was on this trip that I knew he was the one that I would one day marry! I will never forget the straight up pure excitement of getting off my plane and seeing him walking toward me and my teammate and embracing him for the first time in a really really long time. I won't mention that he almost walked right by me not recognizing me....

This morning was fun reminiscing about this place - the people who I met, the direction my life took from one specific trip, the fun and the reconnecting - all from one little small country. I spent time praying for specific friends who are dear to my heart. I prayed for the students who I met for the very first time and loved them because they were just plain amazing. I praised the Lord for the connections that were made there on so many levels and how he set the path of my life in many ways from that little corner of the world. I praised the Lord for the 10 days that I got to meet up with Dan - in the middle of a LONG time apart - right here in Germany and how we got to experience a trip of a lifetime together! And I prayed for Germany, that in the midst of the beauty there, that the light of Jesus Christ will shine bright from every forest and mountaintop.

Have you been to Germany? How can you pray for that beautiful place today?

Monday Morning Mug: Athens

Kimmy LaMee

When I look at this mug, I think of two things: vacation and COFFEE! I had the best time with a few of my teammates as we vacationed here in Athens and the Greek Isles while I was living in North Africa.  We had two requirements for that vacation - a Starbucks and to put our feet in the sand. We accomplished both of those goals. And the bonus was getting to celebrate my 30th birthday, which seems like just yesterday... if only... 

As I think of Greece today, my heart is broken for the many refugees that are landing in Greece and the work that is being done there to help them just survive. I'm so excited (if one can be excited about this...) to be helping organize a work with refugees in Greece this summer. We will be sending a team of six or so to help with distributions of food and supplies in the tent cities. If you would like more information, feel free to leave me a comment or message me. 

This morning I spent time praying for refugees in Greece, for the many volunteers who are serving there, and the work that is being accomplished. I also praised the Lord for some sweet teammates who journeyed to Greece with me! Gosh, I miss those gals and our fun adventures!!

Will you join me in praying for Greece and for refugees this morning? 

5 months already

Kimmy LaMee

I am 5 months already... and mommy and daddy actually remembered to take my pic at 5 months... it's a MIRACLE! I know they are busy... but really, what's more important than me....

I've been up to a whole lot this month. I took them to San Diego and Los Angeles and was quite the star!  I LOVE to fly! I've been asking mommy when we can GO again! I've also got two little teeth and they HURT! I've also been telling mommy and daddy all about that too! I'm rolling all over the place and silly mommy forgets and lays me down and I'm NEVER where she left me... I gotta keep them on their toes!  I also think my big sister is the best thing since sliced bread - whatever that is... She makes me giggle all the time and I sure hope she'll always be my best friend! 

Monday Morning Mug: Istanbul

Kimmy LaMee

I have a general rule in my Starbucks Mug collection which is that I have to be present to actually buy the mug. There are a couple exceptions in my collection thanks to sweet friends who either live there or visited and knew that I collected the city mugs. This is one of those exceptions. I haven't been to Istanbul (yet) but have had sweet friends who lived there and amazing friends who currently live near there.  This city has become precious to me. This morning I spent time praising the Lord for the work of some very sweet friends who have moved back to the states to serve. I am so thankful for the work that they did in that city, how they served other families so very faithfully and how they continue to do that from this side of the ocean. I also lifted up the current work of some dear friends who recently moved to that side of the world. Actually this whole month at dinner time our family is lifting this couple up as they serve among the ZaZa peoples.  Will you join me in praying for Istanbul? Pray for the refugees seeking shelter in that great city and pray for those seeking to serve them. Pray also for the many who walk in darkness in this beautiful city that they may one day hear of the truth that will bring light into their world! 

Monday Morning Mug: Los Angeles

Kimmy LaMee

While my team was in San Diego a couple weeks ago, we took a day and drove north to the really fun city of Los Angeles. While we could have spent hours trying to find famous people and their stars, we got straight to work learning about a great ministry in the city. We spent the afternoon touring the Dream Center, a ministry to the homeless and those struggling with addiction. I was quite impressed at the magnitude of that place. They can house up to 750 individuals in their facility. They work with men, women, families, and veterans. The lady that gave us our tour was actually living there with her children and working for the Center. The program is quite extensive and heavily focused on discipleship. They do community outreaches and give away thousands of pounds of food each week. 

This wasn't my first trip to LA. I actually worked in the summer of 2003 with MFUGE camps and served at California Baptist University. My campers served in Riverside at a daycare facility. It was quite a precious place with sweet memories. I also enjoyed being introduced to the In & Out Burger joint and of course we had to stop in this trip too... 

This morning I spent time praying for The Dream Center, MFuge Camps, and my team. I also spent time praying for the 750 beds which represent people who are desiring to change their life for the better.

Have you been to LA? How could you spend time praying for that fun city today?
