On Saturday night, Simon asked me if I was preaching Sunday, and I told him not that I knew of, but then he told me that he had told Pastor Do that I was. It was about 10 p.m., so I told him I was going to bed, and I would sleep on it. The next day, I knew that I was supposed to preach, but I had no idea what to preach on–I have been here more than once. As Simon and I sat on the platform waiting to be introduced, I leaned over to Simon and asked him what he was going to say. He told me that he was going to say what I said, and he said if I say nothing, he would say nothing–I told him just to make sure he says it in Kreol. I told this to the congregation, and they thought that was pretty funny. As usual, the Lord gave me the words to say, and we had a great time giving the message.
After church, Simon, Blanco and I cleaned up a little around the mission house and got ready to leave. We left the mission house about 1 p.m., and arrived at Dottie’s around 3 p.m. I had arranged to meet a friend of Simon’s to pick up some stone statues to give away for donations when we have a kiosk at Santa Rosa Mall in Fort Walton Beach during Christmastime. After I met with him and got the statues, Dottie made us some hamburger helper, that was delicious for me. I hadn’t had any beef since I left home.
Tomorrow I will be leaving Haiti, and Dottie was gracious enough to let us leave the new Ford there. She spoke to the new owner, Don, and worked it out that we can leave it there till I come back in late October.
Dottie leaves the country Sept 22, and it will feel really strange not to see her when I come to Haiti. There will be a lot of people who will miss her, especially the children in the school, but the Lord has called her to south Florida, where He has a whole new adventure for her.
