it is my first Christmas away from home. yet I am amazed at the amount of blessings that have been poured upon me this holiday season.
I am thankful for the recognition that our God is a big and miraculous God. that he can and will bless those that love him.
I have an amazing family. one that i remember every time i listen to i'll be home for christmas and can't help feeling a bit sad.
an amazing group of friends that know me exactly. that confirm my calling. that pray for me.
An amazing church family that sent gifts, that lifts me up in prayers, that i can call home.

I have a home in Peru. I have a family in Peru.
I have dreams for Peru. I am so blessed to be here.

This christmas I am remembering the many ways I am blessed.

Love Leanne

  1. Merry Christmas Leanne; enjoy your time there and live richly.

    "Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people." (Luke 2:10)

    Isn't it cool that this story has just as much meaning no matter where you are in the world? I remember getting a bit teary-eyed at "I'll be home for Christmas/If only in my dreams" too, but our thoughts are with you. I can tell you're enjoying where you are now, and you'll be home soon enough!
