My Maria.....

Wednesday's Walk Down Memory Lane

Come for a walk with me down Memory Lane!
And if you have a "Memory Lane" post, head on over to Scottsville to join in on the fun!

In March of 2006, I went to Honduras, with my church, on a medical mission trip. While there, I met a very special lady.

Meet my Friend, Maria....

She was a beautiful lady who loved Jesus. She never wanted to miss an opportunity, even if though a translator, to hear about Him.

Despite the fact that she was 104, yes 104, she walked to our church services each and every night that week.

She was precious. I fell in love with her and her sweet spirit. She cried when I left, and so did I. She said she didn't want me to go back to the States, but she knew I had to.

Most of us complain if the pew is not padded enough, or if the church is too hot/cold, but my 104 year old friend WALKED to an outside church service every night.

How awesome is that?

  1. Pretty awesome!!! My blogger friend Larissa was also met by a team from our church while on a mission trip to Brazil. She and I have never actually met, but just through our blogs and now via email. She's a bit younger than me, but there's that Sister in Christ love for each other already there!

    Thanks for joining up in my 'meme' today. Enjoyed your trip down memory lane!
