Misawa's Dream Team

Spent this day loving on my local PWOC team.....these women have been such a BLESSING! God knit our hearts together and produced much healing and fruit in the process. To Him be all the glory.

Mandy, Tara, Lisa 

We had lunch - we finally got a board photo (minus Mary and Susan). I shared words, they shared words, we laughed, we cried, we marveled at God in our midst. How we love Him and each other too. 

Back - Tara, Ruthi, De'Etta, Kristin, Lisa, Christina
Front - Jessica, Christie, Mandy, Muriel
Unseen - Samson

Half of our group are Pcsing and so this was my last chance to be with many of them as I leave on the 13th to travel to Korea and Tokyo to help train new local Exec boards.   What a dream team! We had young and older, civilian and military, Air Force, Navy....This was service the way I believe God means it to, loving, caring...and we GREW to know HIM more too....and had two babies during the year too as well as many PWOC babies.

And BTW - such deep relationships cause pain when the "goodbyes" come...but they are oh-so-worth-it.

After lunch I headed to Lisa's home. Lisa has agreed to be the interim president for Misawa as we all pray a new President to the front. (PWOC requires you to take a year's break after being on a local board for 3 years....and I'm currently wearing many regional hats as that board is well....small). She and I spent a couple of hours with her dragging info out of me and me fire hosing her with info I knew she'd like to have. ::snort::

I ran home, grabbed the Gherkins and headed back to base for the Chapel's Volunteer Appreciation Dinner.

One last time....It was an HONOR to lead this group of women. I've come to love each one deeply and have been profoundly moved by the trust they placed in me and their God as many stepped out of comfort zones to serve in new ways this year.

Choosing Joy!
