I am home from Belize, and to welcome me home last night was mom and sister at the air port, thick humidity, and then a late night luggage stolen from my Maple Grove front step! Yes stolen! I just spent a week in a rough part of Belize City and nothing went missing. Now I come home and set my smelly mission trip bag out on the step for the night. Why? you may ask did I set it outside??! Well lets just say I wanted to give some nice bugs that may have made that bag my home a chance to escape in the night before I found them.
Little did I know that some one in Maple Grove would want my smelly, dirty old clothes, my old sheets, air mattress and Praying Pelican Missions leader book. I am happy right now that they took the work of me needing to wash all those clothes. I am very sad about one thing that was in my bag. The pastor we parented with this past week gave PPM a gift of a wood carved map of Belize for in our office! And sadly that was the only wonderful thing in my bag that was taken :(
My bag is labeled with my name and address, and just maybe I will be returned when they find nothing worth taking.
Now for a picture story of my trip in Belize City at Lake Independence Baptist Church.
