Room Complete.... Well, almost.

Well, the girls' room is not complete, but I have enough done to post some pictures. I still have a bit of sewing to do and some miscellaneous things here and there. I have one entire wall to complete, but it will have to wait a week or so.

Here are some pictures of their room BEFORE...



And here it is AFTER...




Like I said, it's not finished, but I really love how it's turning out. And so do the Slaughter sisters. I wish I would have had a camera to snap the look on their faces when they opened the door for the first time. Priceless and worth all the work. By the way, the headboards are a door I sawed in two. The locker you see is for book storage. Matt's dad gave that to us probably 5 years ago, and it's been sitting in the garage filled with tools. A few coats of paint, and it's the perfect storage for books. The dresser between their beds is their old dresser that Matt sawed in half, and I painted with zebra print and re-did the door. And of course, I've mentioned the chandelier a million times already.

Well, there you have it. I'll try to finish up soon and get the rest of the pictures out there, but for now...

Please please be in prayer for us. Matt and I leave for Brazil in just 7 hours. I am ready. I think. But my heart is hurting at the thought of leaving my babies. I know they will be fine without me. But it's hard leaving your whole world for a week. So, pray for me and them... that our hearts will be settled and peaceful. But more than anything, please pray that our team will make a real difference in the lives of the people of Brazil. I am feeling like Moses right about now. How can I, with all my flaws, do His work effectively? But I'm trusting in a God MUCH MUCH bigger than me.

"Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the LORD God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you until all the work for the service of the temple of the LORD is finished. 1 Chronicles 28:20

Angela, I love the room! Great Job! You are much more of an example and leader than you give yourself credit for. Some people are just very humble, it's a great attribute.
