Quote of the Day:   To be truly happy is a question of how we begin and not of how we end, of what we want and not of what we have. - - Robert Louis Stevenson

Alice came home very happy this afternoon.  She spent most of the morning looking for land to develop future ministries and found quite a number of interesting options.  She spent the afternoon with a Pentacostal pastor and his family.  The pastor had been the translator for the sanitation and hygiene seminar.  Alice has a number of plans and ideas about ministry here and keeps finding many more open doors than closed ones.  She is a really good guest and gives us lots of energy and inspiration from what she is doing.  She is finding, as we have, that there is much more that needs doing than any one person can do.  We all have to pick and choose what, who, and how to help, and there will always be people who are disappointed, but we just follow the call and do what we can.  That's all we are asked to do, but it is hard when you are surrounded by so much poverty, disease, and need.  Pray for her and all who devote their lives to helping others.
