Blessing from Our Savior!

Lori and I were unable to attending a ceremony yesterday for the comfort ship.  This ceremony was to thank and recognize several organizations that received supplies from the comfort ship.  We asked the Troy and Tara if they would attend with Enoch for us.  They did along with Dr. Jen.  It was a great day for everyone and they got to go aboard the ship for a tour.  Pictures of that later.

Thanks you so much Troy, Tara and Jen for always being willing to help us out.  We grealty appreciate it!

While they were getting a tour of the ship we were back here in Cazale unpacking a huge load of all the  donated supplies from the comfort ship.  This is the covered truck backing into the driveway.

These were the boxes for the RC.  There were lots and lots of toys.  Lots of blankets. Clothing, diapers, school kits, hygiene kits.

 There were 50 bags of a porage called Atmit.  This is a special formula for sick and malnourished children.  We had it for dinner tonight and the kids loved it.  Also 30 bags of powered milk.

 This is the inside of the storage room for the RC.  PTL!  There is not even a path for me to walk in the middle.

Thanks so much for all your prayers.  The military doctors arrived in Cazale this AM.  They worked until about 2 and returned to the ship.  They will be here again tomorrow.  It was a great day and many were blessed.  They saw over 230 people.  There were general doctors, eye, dentist, womens health, peds and a few others.  I pray tomorrow and Saturday are even better than today.  All the community here were so nice and respectful.  No pushing or shoving and no fighting to get in.  God is good!

Psalm 118:21-29 (The Message)

 21-25 Thank you for responding to me;
      you’ve truly become my salvation!
   The stone the masons discarded as flawed
      is now the capstone!
   This is God‘s work.
      We rub our eyes—we can hardly believe it!
   This is the very day God acted—
      let’s celebrate and be festive!
   Salvation now, God. Salvation now!
      Oh yes, God—a free and full life!

 26-29 Blessed are you who enter in God‘s name—
      from God‘s house we bless you!
   God is God,
      he has bathed us in light.
   Festoon the shrine with garlands,
      hang colored banners above the altar!
   You’re my God, and I thank you.
      O my God, I lift high your praise.
   Thank God—he’s so good.
      His love never quits!
