BUILDING NEEDED IN HAITI, NOW!!!!

 URGENT REQUEST FROM SHERRIE FAUSEY.  Please read below.  Sherrie needs this work done ASAP and she wishes for Steve to come to supervise the work and groups getting it done.  We need the provision for him to do this.

"We will need our rooms on the roof sooner than expected.  One of the rooms was to be for Wisnal & Yvoinette who were getting married in December.  Both have lived on campus for a few years.  Their parents are demanding that the marriage be moved up to Oct. 30.  We don't have a room ready for them!!!    Please keep this young couple in prayer.  God will make a way.
 
My worker's problem is my problem.  We are like a family with me being the mama.  Please keep the wooden rooms to be built on the roof in prayer.  We need them ASAP!!!!!  It will cost about $5,000 per room and we need teams of Americans who can swing a hammer ASAP!!!!!  We also need the funding ASAP!!!!
I will have Pastor Leny start the Haitian masons on the concrete posts for the roof as soon as I can.  Then the Haitians can put up the tin roof.  It will look much like the church roof in the picture.  The outer wall will be of either concrete or wood.  All the inner walls can be of wood.  This way we can design the rooms to whatever size and shape fits our needs. We need 1 room finished by October 30th!!!  God will make a way."

Recognizing God in the small everyday things

How often do we get help from our Heavenly Dad and not notice it and give Him thanks and credit?  This jumped out at me yesterday.  I woke up with such and awful pain in my neck.  You know, that kink that gets in there down the side of your neck into your shoulder.  I knew I did not need this as I had a lot to do.  It was around 3 a.m. and I could not get comfortable or pain free to go back to sleep.  I started talking to Dad about it and asking Him to help the pain and help me go back to sleep.  I tossed and turned.  Prayed and complained.  I tried different pillow positions and combinations.  In frustration I took a deep breath and asked once more for help with the pain and flopped over on my back.  I remember thinking how it wasn't feeling too bad in that position.  Next thing I knew it was time to get up.  I had fallen off to sleep and even woke up with the pain gone.  I went about the morning and somewhere along the line heard that 'still small voice' asking me if my neck felt better now.  'Why yes, Lord, it does.'  Then stopped in my tracks.  'YOU put that in my mind to lay in that position.  And YOU took away my pain and I have not even said a single thank you!!!'   His subtle reminder brought me to my senses to be more aware when our pleas are answered and not just give the credit to our amazing intelligence.  After all Who gave us that intelligence?  ALL things come from Him even the idea for a more comfortable position at night to ease a pain in the neck!

FW: Flood in our ravine

Subject: Flood in our ravine

 

Hello from flooded Haiti,

 

We had a terrible rainstorm last evening.  It was not a tropical storm but many people died in floods and mudslides.  EDH went out so we have no electricity everywhere except for the solar panels and generators.  Praise the Lord for our solar panels!!!!!

 

I walked though our ravine area this morning where most of our children live.  Some of them lost their possessions and some lost their homes.  Children came to school is old clothes and barefoot because they lost everything.  We can at least feed them.

 

We need to help the families of our students who lost homes and possessions in the flood.    We will distribute whatever clothes & shoes we have.  We are still assessing exactly what to do but we know they need help.  A lot of help.  Some are homeless.  And another rain storm is headed this way.

 

Please pray for our people in the ravine as we try to help them.

 

God bless you,

Sherrie

The Day Jesus Died


 He thought he’d won
the devil smiled
 And rubbed his hands with glee
The maker of the world was dead
 Hanging on a tree.
“The world is mine
I own it ...now,
I finally won,” he cried.
He didn’t know he’d lost it all
The day that Jesus died---  

Two days he smiled
His heart was light
Now man was his alone—
Then words that echoed
through the years,
turned his heart to stone
“For God so loved the world,
He gave His only Son to die—
But on the third day He would rise,
give man eternal life.”  

 That Sunday morn
He waited there
As darkness changed to light
Then terror seared his burning heart
And anguish filled his eyes…
The empty tomb—
He’s risen! It can’t be true,” he cried
He finally learned, he’d lost it all
The day that Jesus died…

Flight travel woes

Well, yesterday was to go off without a hitch but someone forgot to tell US Air that.  We were to pick Sherrie Fausey up at Dulles airport at 5 p.m. and then bring her back to meet all our family and a few friends.  She calls in the afternoon to tell us they switched her flight so she is coming in at 5:25.    Half way down Interstate 66 we get a call from her that her flight is delayed for mechanical reasons.  So we stop at a Sheetz to kill time people watching while we wait rather than turn around and come back home.  By 6 p.m. her flight is completely cancelled and now she is on a flight arriving at midnight.  so home we go.  Then pick her up and this time that flight was early.  She got in around 11:30.  Her day started at 5 a.m.  She was exhausted.  Now today we are off to help her shop at EQUIPPING THE SAINTS.  A great place for missionaries to find good 'experienced' items at bargain prices.

Adventures with God

You just never know what God is going to take you through.  And sometimes it doesn't feel like you will make it through it but He always shows Himself real and takes you through.  He shows His love in so many ways.             
He is changing things around for us and we are excited and scared at the same time.  We KNOW He will provide but often wish He would let us see a little farther down the road.  We are stepping out to be a mission to missionaries.  We will be doing whatever we can, wherever we can to help further the Gospel.  Right now we are helping Sherrie Fausey, missionary to Haiti, gather items for her container.  She is coming here to VA and we are taking her to a great place called EQUIPPING THE SAINTS to buy many items to go in the container. 
Also going to the Green Valley Book Fair to find some books for her to replenish her library after the earthquake and its aftermath destroyed.  Pray for us as we step out to do this.  We plan this to be full time so we will depend on God and His people for support.
