Countries And Cities Where I’ve Been

The Nations are on God’s heart, therefore I love the nations. I’ve had the privilege of traveling to many countries and cities. Some places I have lived in growing up or later for missions, some I traveled to for vacation with my parents as a youngster and also for short term missions later with my husband and kids. Click on the names of the countries to see where they are located. Use tool to zoom in or out of map for better view. If you are from any of these countries or have traveled to any of them, cheer in comments.

Maybe when we are empty nesters in couple years, we will set sail again to the nations. For now I pray the Lord take me to many more countries through vision as I join Him in ministry. I posted some of these countries the Lord took me to in the spirit, under the category “Missions Overseas”. Though only through vision, all the details I saw made me feel as if I truly was there. A special greeting to all my readers and followers from these countries mentioned above.
