Tomorrow is Mother’s Day here in Haiti. We will be in Duverger, a
nearby corps where I’m scheduled to preach. I’m trying to put together
my thoughts on a message on Hannah and her prayers for a son, her
promise to give him up to the Lord’s work and how God provided her with
five more children (three boys and two girls, like my brother Bob and his wife Rae) as a
blessing far beyond what she asked for….Hey, as I type this, it
sounds like a pretty good outline..and the alliteration even holds up in
French: Prière, Promesse, Provision. .. It is always a challenge to preach in Creole. Alliterations don’t usually work, illustrations have to be put into cultural context, etc. But God transcends all of our limitations. Hallelujah!
They were having a special at the phone company on cell phones and there was quite a line. And I don’t think every body was buying phones for their moms. We got replacements for two phones that had been stolen and took one to Maj. Emmi (one of the one’s that were stolen). It amazes me that someone would steal from a woman who has dedicated her life to serve the needy here in Haiti. It just goes to show you that there just ain’t no respect!
Next blog on how we celebrated our anniversary last weekend.
Congratulations to all those who are graduating! God’s best for your future.
