I just returned from Haiti. I accompanied my wife, daughter, daughter-in-law & 16 others to do a woman’s conf. You haven’t lived until you hear 250 Haitian women worshipping for over an hour, hands raised, singing from their toes up, jumping up & down, tears, wild, beautiful. I’d go sit in the back, shut my eyes & just listen to God getting blessed!
Well, just got our new router up & running, so have email now. Ladies will start coming tomorrow. Today we went to a Catholic orphanage. They actually take kids in who are malnourished or sick and care for them till there well. S we all got to hold babies for a few hours. Balloons, smiles, wet diapers, more smiles. It was great. Went over to the hospital in town. Handed out toys, glow in the dark bracelets, and prayed for many folks. Great time.
I hope all is well with you all. Everyone doing great here.
This is from our friends that work in Burma
You have to see this amazing living photo. Its the story of a precious 11 yr old girl from Burma. It tells her story.
Check out John Pipers Blog on this. It’s exactly what I was feeling but could never say as eloquently. Thanks John.
In Ps.40 David says I waited patiently for the Lord; & He inclined to me, & heard my cry. He also brought me up out of a horrible pit. Out of the miry clay, & set my feet upon a rock, & established my steps. He has put a new song in my mouth – praise to God; Many will see it & fear, & will trust in the Lord.
One time in Israel we visited what they believe to be this very a underground cistern. Imagine sinking in this muddy torment? Maybe you’ve been in a mini mudslide recently,or dealing w/a mental mudslide, even a moral mudslide! David did, & his testimony stands firm, “He heard me, He helped me!”
Ps.40 lets us know what happens when we pray & wait? We are as one said…
Pulled out of the Pit & placed onto the Rock! – Out of the Mire, into the Choir! – From Crying to Singing! – Sinking turns into Standing! – Fear into Security! …just to name a few!
Killing Jesus, was like trying to destroy a dandelion seed-head, by blowing on it!
