Quote of the day: "God whispers to us in our pleasures, speaks to us in our conscience, but shouts in our pains: It is His megaphone to rouse a deaf world." C.S. Lewis
Just so you know, in spite of being in a small town in equatorial Africa because we have satellite TV, satellite radio, and the internet--we are very connected to the rest of the world. We get all the news and can even watch the latest episode of "Modern Family" and see the big sporting events (except for Razorback football, sigh). It is because of this that we understand why we aren't getting any groups coming this year--the economy is in a mess and there is no end in sight. All agencies that depend on the generosity of others are hurting, but we are still strong and still working to make this world a better place--a Christian place. We can do more with more money but we can do a lot with what we've got and we intend to do just that. If in the end we go down, we will go down swinging because God called us and we answered. We've got the joy of Jesus, the love of God, and the protection of the Holy Spirit. Can't ask for much more. If you've got this same joy, this same love, and this same protection then you are truly blessed.
