The Richest Woman on Earth…


Yesterday our staff celebrated my birthday at a local Tex Mex restaurant. It was so much fun. Several of the directors of our ministry were in town from various countries for a fund-raising banquet, so  they were there too. It made is so special.


JB kept us laughing with all his “Jewish jokes.” He is one of the funniest guys I know.


That’s my sweet daughter on the end.


Dear friends around the table…


Hard-working staff gals… 


More friends and staff…







JB’s daughter is too cute! 

One of the best parts of the celebration was that they sang “Happy Birthday” to me in seven languages: English, Spanish, Portuguese, Korean, Chinese, Hebrew, and Russian.

Now for a gal that loves the nations like I do, that was the best part! I feel so grateful to God to have so many friends from different countries. In fact, I am feeling like the richest woman on earth right now!

    Happy Birthday to you – now belated! We know that the very best is still ahead for you! You are now living out those days foretold to you from years past. God is faithful to do what He has spoken. You are now His living word being spoken in the places He had planned.

    Your party looked like so much much fun! What happy smiles and faces!

    Happy belated birthday! You look fabulous. I had a great time at the banquet on Thursday. I wanted to say hi but you were in high demand :). I have missed you, my friend, but I am so thrilled for the opportunities the Lord has opened up for you.

    Happy Birthday friend!
