Hi! Thanks so much for stopping by my blog!
My name is Olivia Bauman and I am currently serving as a missionary on the Island of Boracay.
This is where I share what God is doing here on Boracay as well as in my life day to day.
I hope you are blessed by what you read here! The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to sent out laborers into HIS harvest. Matt. 9:37-38
just wanted to share one story with you- At one of the feeding sites I
have worked at for the last eleven months there is one particular girl who
caught my attention from the very first day. She has dark curly hair
and big brown eyes. I always noticed that she never smiled or played or
laughed like the other children. I began to make a habit of going over
to her every week and picking her up and loving on her. Then she
started coming to church with her older siblings. Every single Sunday
she comes and climbs on my lap and falls asleep in my arms. I have
fallen in love with this precious girl...But still she never smiled or
even showed any emotion. She has a hard home life. Anyways, I have
just continued to pray for her and love on her every chance I get. The
other day she was sitting on my lap at the feeding and suddenly turned
towards me and smiled the biggest smile and then began to laugh....It
was the most glorious moment! Her eyes lit up and her face crinkled up
as she smiled up at me. Since then I have seen her two more times and
she is a different little girl! She is happy and has begun to join in
with the other children at the feeding site. I know that God has called
me here to love those ones that have been passed by and she is a
perfect example of that. I am blessed that God is using me here on
Boracay.....Which is why I have made the decision to extend for another
I want to say thank you so much to all of you for your love and support over the past year. What a blessing you all have been to me!
