Heading down South

I am sitting in the airport waiting on my long day of travel back to Haiti. I wanted to share with you some of the pictures of the things churches in Licking County are sending with me. Over 70 backpacks were collected, around 8 beautiful, handmade quilts and some awesome handmade dresses (I wish they fit me!). My suitcases and fought for a few hours trying to cram everything into 3 bags with a 50 lb weight limit. (They probably teach that class in missionary college but I went to a state school and took Organic Chemistry instead). I am so thankful to Newark Church of Christ, Utica Church of Christ and Licking Valley Church of Christ for all their generosity in giving/making these NICE gifts. Many people told me how much fun they had shopping and making these things but I have to admit that I think I have the best part of getting to be there and distributing in the name of Jesus-our Lord and Savior.

Thank you, thank you , thank you!

Proverbs 19:17 (NCV) "Being kind to the poor is like lending to the Lord;
He will reward you for what you have done.
