“One would give generous alms if one had the eyes to see the beauty of a cupped receiving hand.” - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Dearest Family and Friends,
Here is our mission trip told through pictures taken over the 3 months I was there. Two volunteers came along for a month - CJ my nephew who came last year and his friend Adam. They were a blessing and gave so much love and received so much love, which Adam wrote about in his newsletter he sent upon his return. It was a shorter mission trip for me than usual as I was due back for a very special occasion - MY OLDEST SON GERRY'S WEDDING!!! It was a beautiful wedding and I thank God for my safe return, so that I could be a part of their celebration of marriage.
TO GOD BE THE GLORY!
Upon my return to the villages, I will be residing in the rectory I have stayed in the last 2 years and have been offered a residents quarters of my own by the Dr. who admits and treats my patients according to their financial ability. I will not be working for or in the hospital, I will continue the outreach in the villages.
I pray, by the GRACE OF GOD and through GENEROUS DONATIONS that we can raise over $60,000. The money raised will go towards good hospital equipment, for the hospital I will be residing in and our continued outreach in NSU, Ehime MBANO L.G. A. and the surrounding villages. I cannot do it alone, I humbly ask you to sacrifice and give so that others may LIVE!
Please continue to pray for us as we are praying for all of you.
All my love,
which is a portion of God's love
