HAITI LIFE

IMG_4380 One of the blessings of living in Haiti is that we often fellowship or work with others from different nations and Christian backgrounds. We still have the four Swiss ladies with us, (Troy called last night and he was sure that he heard yodeling coming for our house) and last night we had at our table, as well people from Florida, North Carolina, Illinois, Haiti and Nigeria. We had three Salvation Army officers in this group.

Beth excels in bringing people together around a home cooked meal. We recently had a young boy from the States return for a visit after being here two years ago. When I greeted him the first thing he said to me was, “I can’t wait to have one of Miss Beth’s wonderful meals.” And she didn’t disappoint him during his few days with us.

GOOD STUFF:

 

I AM PRAYING FOR YOU

 

The story is told of Pastor Richard Wurmbrand, the founder of The Voice of the Martyrs who spent 14 years in communist prison for his Christian activities.


When the ranking prison officer caught Richard praying in his cell, he tormented him more.  "Why would you pray?  You have lost everything!  What do you have left that you could possibly be praying for?"  The pastor looked up and told the officer.  "I am praying for you."

We now have two NEW RECUITS to our Mastiff force.  These two puppies, born to our Mastiff Lily, are now about a month old.  The one on the left is the female and on the right is the male.  It is hard to believe that they will be over 150 pounds, but they are sure eating like it will be soon.  Both these puppies are spoken for and will bring joy to their new families.
