Another Step In the Journey: Mexico Bound!

The Lord opened up a door of opportunity for me to do some missions photography in San Cristóbal de las Casas, Chiapas, Mexico! ...And I am leaving this Wednesday morning! I will be gone for nearly a month duration. (Returning to the United States on October 14th.)

I am photographing a local Pastor's wedding on Sunday, September 23rd. Please do be praying especially for this day - pray for Pastor Enrique + Maricruz as they join their lives together, pray that the Lord would grant me good health & energy, pray that the Lord would grant wisdom & understanding as I try to communicate with Spanish translator(s), and most importantly, pray that the Lord would be honored & glorified through all that transpires & takes place!

As for the rest of the trip, I will be staying with missionary friends, Steven & Grace, and hopefully help or come alongside with whatever ministry opportunities or needs they have.

May this trip NOT be about "Leah Christine Imagery" or be about picking up new fans or followers, but rather, may God show just how good & great He is.

I have no idea what will transpire in this next month, but I am ready with arms wide open to receive all that He wants to pour down from the windows of heaven.

"...put Me to the test, says the LORD of hosts,
if I will not open the windows of heaven for you
& pour down for you a blessing until there is no more need."

Vacation Days + Colorado Springs

As you all probably have heard or know by now, I was planning on going to Prince Edward Island the end of August for a roadtrip. With many other times in life, God had other plans in mind, and so I ended up going down to Colorado Springs for a few days & staying with my friend Tosha in her adorable little mountain cabin.

My days in the mountains were lovely... sipping cups of Chai at Agia Sophia's coffee shop, visiting Garden of the gods, watching "Roman Holiday" for the first time, visiting the Glen Eyrie castle on property at "The Navigators" (That was incredible! I felt like I was in a "Jane Eyre" movie set!), seeing the Broadmoor Resort twice, trying Asian "Bubble Tea" for the first time, and visiting IKEA for the first time in Denver on my drive home were just SOME of the things I did!

Here's a whole lotta pictures for you all to feast over. :-)
