Today was a day of rest—sorry, no pictures. Everybody went to a little church down the street, but I stayed behind to spend a little alone time with the Lord. I knew for the next 9 or 10 days I would be around a lot of people. I have to say I had a wonderful time with the Lord, as I always do. I went over the Sermon on the Mountain that I memorized many years ago to see if I could still do it. I need a little practice. I got chapter 5 down; I just need to work on chapters 6 & 7. It amazes me how God allows me to remember those chapters after not repeating them for almost a year. He said He would teach us all things and bring all things to our remembrance.

It was nice and quiet here at Dottie’s with no one around, and I could talk with my Father about my life and the plans He has for His ministry, and pray for my family. I always ask for forgiveness when I have fallen short, which is so many times but I know He understands I’m trying. It always amazes me how great I feel when I spend time with Him.

When everyone returned, they wanted to go to Epidor (restaurant), so I drove and we had lunch. After lunch Karl and I had to get on the road to pick up the team that would be arriving at 4:15 p.m. First we had to go out to Croix de Bouquet to get Gabriel, because this was a big group with a lot of luggage. We had to give a “gift” (if you know what I mean) to a policeman to let us park the truck in the car parking lot. But this gift did get us into the airport, which was nice, so we could help the team. We got everyone loaded up and to Dottie’s with no problem, Praise the Lord!!!!!

Tomorrow will be the first day of construction for the Americans, and that is always a slow day, because it takes at least half a day to figure out what you’re doing and where everything is. Please be praying for us.

I’ll have plenty of pictures tomorrow.
