To Catch You Up

Did I tell yawl that David and I were going on a Medical Mission trip to Costa Rica?  I know that I have been away so long that I have lost track...I could go back and review...but I think I'll just catch yawl up and tell you what has been happening with me.
At the end of July, David and I went with 13 other people, most of whom were from our church, to Costa Rica.
That's David and me on the back--2nd and 3rd from the left. 
It all started around this time last year with the preacher--he's the first one on the left, announced to the church one Sunday morning that "The Church" was going on a Medical Mission trip to Costa Rica and that Dr. Rushing, and Dr. Harrison were going. 
Now I work with Dr. Rushing and Dr. Harrison is my dentist.  I knew beyond a doubt that Dr. Rushing had no idea about this and the preacher had called him out. :-D  (That's Dr. Rushing the next to last on the far right.)
And this is the conversation that I had with God on the way home after church that Sunday.
God:  Angelyn.....
Me:  Yes Lord?
The preacher said that he was getting together a Medical Mission trip to Costa Rica.
Yes Lord.
And you are a nurse.
Yes Lord.
And you could go.
Yes Lord.
And you have spent the last 56 years of your life doing things for yourself.
Yes Lord.
I'm ready for you to get out of your comfort zone and do something for My Kingdom besides writing out a check.
Yes Lord.
And I want you to go.
Yes Lord. But there's just one thing.
Yes Angelyn.
You of course being God are absolutely correct, and I'm willing, but Kingdom or no Kingdom I ain't going without David.  And I don't mean any harm about this, but you are going to have to convince David to go.
Just let me handle it.
More to this story later....tune in later for the rest...I promise it's very interesting.
