A Whirlwind Trip

UnknownWe just completed a whirlwind trip of sorts. We traveled to Goldsboro to visit Pastor Mitch Ham at The Lord’s Table Church on Tuesday. We sat and discussed instruments that need to be purchased and shipped to Haiti. Mitch and the church helped us out in choosing the best instruments for the money allotted to us. We have raised $2,000 which will enable us to finally buy some drums. We still need a new electric piano as well as an amplifier for our bass guitar. We need other items as well and we concluded that it would take an estimate of $5,000 to buy what we needed. That leaves $3,000 more to raise. Would you like to help?

We left Goldsboro to visit our good friend, Myrtle Wickham. We came to wish her an early Happy Birthday and took her out to eat. Myrtle is a true ”Mother of Israel” and will turn 88 years old tomorrow.

After leaving Tarboro the next morning, we stopped by Greenville and visited with some longtime friends and donors of Rehoboth Ministries, Johnny and Phyllis Rogers. These are two people who have stood in the gap for Rehoboth for many years and we were happy to have a little time with them.

We are now back in Jacksonville and enjoying the time that we have left stateside. John returns from Haiti in 8 days and we’ll spend Christmas here this year with our family. It will be our first Christmas stateside since 2010 when Prit was recovering from his aneurysms. In early January, we plan to return to Haiti, Lord willing.

If we have not seen you or visited your church, group, or meeting, we’d love to come and at least say ”hi.” We still have a short window of time and would love to visit!

The Broken Candy-Cane

child

( I have been reminded today of something that happened many years ago at our main compound. I guess, since it’s #Giving Tuesday, this story came to my mind. )

We had a young guest speaker who was sharing a devotional with our school kids.  The speaker’s subject was about giving wholeheartedly. It was a good teaching. He was making the point that, when we give, we should give royally. At that point, he held up a broken candy cane which had fallen on the ground and was dirty. He then said, ”If I offered this to one of you, you wouldn’t want this broken and dirty candy cane, would you?” He didn’t wait for them to respond assuming that they would reject the gift. After all, he had used the same illustration in other countries and the children would instantly and indignantly reply, ”Noooo!”

Yet, I watched our school kids’ eyes grow large as he held up the broken piece of candy and could see that these children would have happily taken him up on his offer.  You see, these children didn’t eat on a regular basis and knew what real hunger was. As the young man continued with his devotional, I studied the little ones’ bewildered eyes and offered up yet one more silent plea for the Lord to make a way for us to have a feeding program for our more than 1200 students in three schools. I’m happy to say that the Lord did answer that prayer. Thanks to the wonderful ministry of Orphans Promise and donors who give on a regular basis, we can ensure that these kids eat one hot meal five days a week.

Our schools are continually growing and, as we establish new church plants, we also plant a new school. This means an increase in the number of children who are coming to us to get both a Christian education… and a hot meal. Would you consider sowing into this need and be the answer to yet one more silent plea for help to feed hungry children?It’s #GivingTuesday and YOU CAN make a difference!
