We had a number of recent photos gathered in a file. They didn’t seem to go together at all, but they did have one thing in common…they reminded us of our blessings!
Child Sponsorship Support. Sea containers come down regularly with needed supplies for the various programs we help manage: supplying food to five schools, school and health kits and bible story books to sponsored kids.
MEBSH convention. Every April we experience the national convention here in Simon. Church members from about 450 MEBSH churches join for services from Wednesday to Sunday. It is interesting, but loud and very crowded for the most part. There are lots of choirs performing during that time and everyone that can’t attend has the same radio station on broadcasting it all day long.
The first morning we volunteered to help serve the food for the MEBSH worker’s meeting. It reminded us of lunches at church conferences in the states, except they were served rice & beans, a piece of beef and a little sauce to put over all of it.
Evangelism training. We have been blessed to have several young Haitian men come weekly for an evangelism class we have been teaching. Two of them are missing in the photo below, and all but one are all able to speak English quite well. We have enjoyed hearing them share the gospel in Creole.
Sunshine! We have been blessed to be able to convert our house to solar power this month.
Rain! Last but not least, we have finally been having the blessing of rain return to south Haiti! After an extremely dry year with almost no measurable precipitation, we have been having rain almost every night! It’s a blessing for the land, but a real hardship at the same time for those who have to dry out all their belongings every day.
“And I will make them and the places round about my hill a blessing; and I will cause the shower to come down in his season; there shall be showers of blessing.” – Ezekiel 34:26
