Heavenly treasure

Less than 24 hours after the container arrives, blessing and heavenly treasure pour forth. I always seem to forget that this is why we battle so much getting containers shipped. ..Spiritual wickedness in high places. And the easiest way to kill an army is cut its supplies. The day started out like this:
Omar taught the boys ministry this morning on the back wall of the Children’s Lighthouse. Several boys came forward for salvation and getting right with the LORD. Then the boys moved and organized and cleaned up some of the stuff we unloaded yesterday then loaded up the risograph corn and scriptures to return home with…and of course some time to play on the go-cart. Omar has come along way, Carlos was unable to go to Colonia due to his wife’s graduation. So Omar took his family and several men from the church and headed up for the first time in 3 weeks due to weather.. in the 69 datsun. Two folks trusted the LORD. He also took up some needed food and scriptures. Pastor Santos called and had 5 families without food he was hoping to help. And there were 2 families in Colonia also hurting due to not working with the road impassable. Omar and Blanca were able to help them as well. Santo’s sons met them in Colonia packed the 200lbs of food on their shoulders and on up the mountain they went…It still amazes me.

Barry Jr started to check out the 40 year old mower. It is actually in pretty good shape just some tweeks here and there. And of course Jr will want to modify it “to make it better” and it mowed some today. Amen!Lisa put the risograph to task within an hour of entering in the house. We made and printed a family devotional last month and everyone wanted more. On our computer it cost near $100 in ink to print 40-48 page books. On the riso it printed it all with just leftover ink.

The good Samaritan ministry from San Marcos was passing by the Children's Lighthouse (We're on the panamericain highway) and stopped in to check us out…nice folks. Jokingly I closed the door on the bodega and told them they could only leave if they took some scripture to distribute....They packed up 16,000 scriptures. AMEN! Only 127,000 more to go.

So in less than 24hours after arriving the corn has fed the hungry, The mower mowed, 5 people trusted the LORD, 16,000 of the scriptures were delivered, and the Risograph printed our monthly devotional booklet for 40 families…Not bad for 24 hours.

Keep praying! Thank you,

Unworthy Servant to a Worthy Saviour,
