"So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen.
For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal."
II Corinthians 4:18

February 23

Pizza night!
My mother was sort of stuck here do to bad weather in Austin Texas, so she made 2 batches of pizza dough in my bread machine. The other girls brought favorite pizza toppings, I think nearly everyone brought pepperoni!

The girls were divided into 4 groups and they made their pizzas. My mom came along to see the Faith Girls program in action and was a big help showing the girls how to work the dough on the cookie sheets. (when I grow up I hope I'm like her ) While the pizza where in the oven, the girls and I started our lesson.

We studied about David Livingstone, Missionary/Explorer in Africa.

While telling the African people about the Gospel and establishing mission bases for other missionaries, Dr. Livingstone explored Africa and made maps of the unknown wilderness. He was also a medical doctor and an abolishonist, working to end the slave trade.

Dr. Livingstone faced many dangers, disease, cannibals, wild animal attacks just to name a few.
Statue of Livingstone being attacked by a lion. This attack left his arm nearly useless the rest of his life.
I of course knew the famous line "Dr. Livingstone, I presume?" and that Dr Livingstone was an explorer of the continent of Africa, but what I was not taught in school was that the whole reason he was in Africa to begin with was to minister to the people of Africa and tell them about Jesus.

Dr Livingstone remained faithful to his calling to share the love of Jesus to all people and nations.
