A story line of pictures

The name that I was give at Birth.... Heidi.... Leann... McCully...

8lbs 9oz at 33 weeks... Yes I was a premature... but a macrosomic newborn... (large baby... just think if I was full term... wow!! )

Welcome Baby Heidi @ 2:02 am March 9, 1989

For you formed my inward parts;
you knitted me together in my mother's womb.

I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
Wonderful are your works;
my soul knows it very well.
My frame was not hidden from you,
when I was being made in secret,
intricately woven in the depths of the earth.
Your eyes saw my unformed substance;
in your book were written, every one of them,
the days that were formed for me,
when as yet there was none of them.
How precious to me are your thoughts, O God!
How vast is the sum of them!
If I would count them, they are more than the sand.
I awake, and I am still with you.
(Psalm 139:13-18 ESV)

Every year God continued to open my eyes to his calling for the Gospel to be preached.... calling to go...

Here I am Lord.... Send me...

Foma Hope .... Hello Hope

..... First Time overseas!!

My time in Niger Aug-Dec 2008 Ly On Kara Niger...


has of the highest maternal/infant mortality rates in the world

One of the hottest places in the world

I struggled with God with the calling to Muslim while in Niger... However again I found myself saying.... Lord Here I am... Send Me.... Give me a heart that beats for yours...

At first I was scared unsure it was God... yet God kept giving me the vision of working with Muslim women. Every place I looked I was running into someone who worked with Muslims...

So the vision of Foma Hope began... (Hello Hope)

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.
(Romans 15:13 ESV)

Hello- Foma (fulani word for hello)

Hope... To be able to share the Hope of Christ and also bring Hope by training (nationals) and providing for the Physical needs as well.

Meet little Nathan... He came into the world Feb 8th, 2011... My 13th delivery at MMC. Super sweet little boy.

Oh, taste and see that the LORD is good!
Blessed is the man who takes refuge in him!
(Psalm 34:8 ESV)

Outreach... to the mountains... the Bukid. To provide health care teachings, and do prenatals.

Your hands have made and fashioned me;
give me understanding that I may learn your commandments.
Those who fear you shall see me and rejoice,
because I have hoped in your word.
(Psalm 119:73-74 ESV)

God created this world... it seems so big.... yet so small... An viewpoint on Samal Island (small Island off Davao bay)

Meet Leah... and Akiesha Hope.... My first contunity patient at MMC to deliver at MMC... born Feb 10, 2011

So you may ask why did I put a picture of a goat on my page. I'm a farm girl at heart. : ) My desire is to work among Muslim women. Rural Muslim women.
In Niger I learned how to take goats milk and make infant formula. So you never know what God will do....( MRBLC farm train center... march 9 2011)...
Fredrick my little rubby ducky that travels with me... thanks to victoria : )
Where does my Help come from.... My Help comes from the Lord maker of heaven and earth!!

I'll leave end the story with these two verses... I know God will continue to write this story and may be for his Glory...

“Look among the nations, and see;
wonder and be astounded.
For I am doing a work in your days
that you would not believe if told.
(Habakkuk 1:5 ESV)

I will take my stand at my watchpost
and station myself on the tower,
and look out to see what he will say to me,
and what I will answer concerning my complaint.
(Habakkuk 2:1 ESV)


  1. Wow, Heidi! That was a great post! Loved your words, your Bible verses, your thoughts, your heart, your photos! And of course I loved the ones from Washington -- I'm always homesick for that lovely place, as I know you are.

    Bless you, dear girl, as you serve God with your whole heart and eagerly watch and wait for His leading into the next chapters!


  2. Love you Heidi! Keep following Jesus!
