I'm back! & with my laptop (thank you for praying!) I actually drove (haha😬👍🏼) to the mall to pick up my laptop this past weekend. Although it was around $1k, I'm really grateful for the extra amount raised from the fundraising.. it covered it. Thank you so much ♡

so proud of the ppl who placed!
went to church with patrick & tip (:
the eubanks... been missionaries here for 56 years. #inspiration.
& she translated for me the entire service!
their son is david eubank.. currently head of FBR (free burma rangers)—he's a former US special forces operative now fighting to help those who can't fight for themselves. if you google his name + cnn, he's been in the news! pretty awesome.
since 2012, in a campaign of ethnic cleansing, the burma army has pushed more than 700,000 rohingya into bangladesh.. so sad.
all these guys are a part of FBR, risking their lives to help save ppl. they come to this church once a year & i feel super honored to hear them sing about God making us like rainbows... we are created differently and uniquely to love each other, not kill each other.
