Mountain Photos

The kids are back from the mountains. They were a little in awe, so not a lot of photos. But they learned a lot, bathed in the river and washed clothes, sang and ministered in church, went visiting with Santos to families who did not come Sunday. In general had a taste of how to live on near nothing but the joy of the LORD. The church had a 2nd special service on Monday just because the kids were up there and about 80 people showed up inside and more crowded the doors and windows to see and hear. On visitation Cami was led to give her Bible away to a man who did not have one. The girls told of visiting a 14 year old blind girl, who rarely went out to play or anything, because it was too dangerous and there was no one to guide her because everyone worked. It was humbling enough that the girl voices held back tears as they shared it. Another home was lady who lost her husband and daughter when their house collapsed during the same storms that damaged the Children’s Lighthouse a month or so ago. She asked them to pray for her that the LORD would restore the Joy of her salvation…Our ministry has been helping feed them and send supplies. Pastor Santos was using this to help rebuild her home.

Sounds like another life changing experience down there! I'm sure that they had lots of stories to tell when they got back to your house! It always amazes me to see how God can take literally nothing and turn it into something for His Kingdom!And to see how he supplies for those who are willing to give of themselves to Him!

His Grace is Sufficient!
