I Don’t Want To Be Your Hero

13592548_10154371249367008_7664008177577193517_nI heard a beautiful song a while back from my kids’ generation – even though they are no longer kids. ūüôā It’s the type of song that, once you hear it, lingers in your mind playing it’s beautiful melody over and over again. The title of the song is ”I Don’t Want To Be Your Hero.”¬†Out of curiosity, I asked our son, John, what the composer really meant when he wrote it, so he researched it. All in all, the writer seemed to have no real reason and I guess the words just came to him and they seemed to fit with the music. In a sense, his hunch was right because the song was a hit and became the theme song for a popular tv series.

I envisioned several reasons that would have provoked him to write this song before I learned there was really no particular reason for doing so. I thought, perhaps it was a young man not willing to go to war and lose his life for his country or maybe he was a dead-beat dad who shirked the responsibilities of fatherhood. He could have just been the husband who no longer wanted to be there for his wife. I guess this song could be interpreted in more ways than we can count.  However, it got me to thinking about heroes we have met.

Modern-Day Heroes

We, here at Rehoboth, know many wonderful people who have stepped up to the plate and willingly given into this work. They are modern-day heroes who have seen the plight of the Haitian people and given what they could. Not only have they given of their finances, but many have come to Haiti to preach, do construction, feed hungry children, meet with our leaders and encourage our people with their presence. They also made time for us in just sitting around the table to enjoy meals and conversations, plus brainstorming together.

If Rehoboth Ministries has been successful, it has not been due to our labor alone. It is by the coming together of so many friends and donors who are willing to be a catalyst of change in other people’s lives.

Such is the couple featured in today’s post. Pastor John and Jan Finochio are from Harriston, Ontario (Canada) and they pastor Crossroads Life Church. They have partnered with Rehoboth on so many levels. John and Jan have been to Haiti and ministered in our main church, John has also taught both in seminars and in our Bible institute. They have put their hands to the plow in multiple ways financially and upheld us with their prayers. We are so grateful for their partnership.

Thank you John and Jan for being modern-day heroes!

Second Opinion

 

 

th-1Hi Everyone,¬†Thanks for your prayers for Prit and John’s luggage. It got to them yesterday evening while they were still in Fort Pierce, FL, and they were able to fly into Cap Haitian this morning with all their belongings.

Second Opinion

I think most of you know by now that I (Dana) have been diagnosed with breast cancer. I have an appointment at Duke Medical Center next Wednesday, Sept. 2, to get a second opinion. This meeting will be pivotal in deciding what my next step should be. I am in great need of your prayers. I have seen and experienced what the power of prayer can do. Also, pray for Dr. Shelley Hwang, the oncologist/surgeon who will be doing the consultation, that the Lord will illuminate her mind and give her divine wisdom in this case. Below is a thought to ponder:

God does nothing except in response to believing prayer.” John Wesley

Where’s My Luggage?

thThis morning my husband and John left Jacksonville (NC) and flew to Charlotte (NC), then made their trek on to West Palm Beach (FL). With the Republican Convention starting up in Charlotte today (meaning a huge influx of people), Prit and John’s baggage didn’t make it to West Palm Beach. They will be flying into Cap-Haitian early tomorrow morning on Missionary Flights, International, and their suitcases are supposed to be delivered to them this afternoon. Please pray that they’ll have their luggage in hand before leaving for Haiti.

Seems there’s always a story to tell when it comes to Haiti!

I Covet Your Prayers

OIP.yZSoejaI_199ePWJ1vkwHAD6D6

Hi Everyone!

Once in a while, by some glitch (or more likely my ineptness), I manage to lock myself out of the Rehoboth wordpress account. Hence the reason that I haven’t posted in a while. Well, today I finally figured out how to log back in….after much prayer!

So much has happened in the meantime that it’s hard to know where to start. I guess I’ll start with me and ask for your prayers at this time.

I have been diagnosed with cancer in my left breast where I had a lumpectomy in July 2017. The lump is back and the doctor has told me they will need to remove the whole breast since it’s also in the tissue. As you can imagine, this was not the news I wanted to hear.

After getting over the initial shock, I knew I had to get a grip and come up with a gameplan.

    1. I am in the process of seeking a second opinion. As soon as the referral comes through, I’ll be on my way to Duke Hospital to find out if this is, indeed, my only option.
    2. I have spent the majority of my time in prayer and meditation seeking the mind of the Lord and asking for a miracle. I know there are many women who have walked this path before and that I’m not alone.
    3. I’m getting my rest and applying the natural realm in taking supplements to build up my immune system.
    4. I am turning my attention to others in need and letting them know that they are in my prayers.
    5. I’m re-examining my priorites and setting boundaries. I know I need to take care of this one body that the Lord gave me.

Thanks to all of you who already know my situation. Your heartfelt prayers mean everything to me! I am especially thankful for our Haitian brethren who are constantly before the Throne of Grace pouring out their hearts in my behalf. ¬†So….my hope is in Him.
