This morning, I received a message from Cola. Cola works at our house and oversees a multitude of responsibilities from shopping at the marché for us to overseeing buying fuel and operating our diesel generator. In his message he shared, ”Yo pa gen diesel” meaning ”They have no diesel fuel.” Not only is it not available at the gas tank, there is NONE for sale in Cap-Haitian!
No diesel fuel means we can’t run our generator. Not running our generator means our refrigerator won’t work or anything else which requires electricity. Even our gas stove has to have a little jolt of electricity to use the propane from the tank in order to cook food. Life, in general, becomes much more difficult because so much depends on that power – like even charging one’s telephone. We use our generator to store up energy on our batteries so that the electricity can last through the day.
Don’t get me started on what it’s like living in Haiti with no running fans!
One day our solar panels will eliminate this worry, but for now we must have electricity from another source.
I’m reminded of the story of the wedding at Cana. Mary, Jesus’ mother, came to Jesus and said, ”They have no wine.” I’m sure you remember the rest of the story. Jesus responded to Mary’s request and produced more than an ample supply of wine for the wedding guests. NOTE: No one was going to suffer for the lack of wine. Jesus performed his first miracle for the hosting family simply to save them from embarrassment and disgrace. What a Saviour!
Would you join us in prayer for a miraculous suppy of diesel fuel to appear in our city and the ability to get several tanks for our compound at a decent price? If the Lord will turn water to wine, will He not provide for one our most basic needs?
I can’t wait to share with you how the Lord provided this answer to prayer!
