#492 our story

Tomorrow is another holiday. It is All Saint’s Day and that is the third holiday in a month. So all the staff gets off & the older children have to fill in or them in the kitchen, baby dorm, etc. 

3/29/2003. I spoke at the men’s breakfast and then Dottie spoke at the ladies luncheon here in Sulfur. But the highlight of the day was Brother Rhodes who is COO of the Methodist Children’s home in New Orleans. He is a dynamic speaker. He is an ex-Grambling player and a tremendous organizer of men. His stories of what God has done was so amazing. In Guatemala the Newsong group who were such a blessing by ministering to the children the last week left. They worked with the baby dorm and younger children as well as providing beautiful music.

3/30. This morning Dottie and I spoke to the combined adult Sunday school classes. I ministered at the morning service as we concluded the conference. In the afternoon we hosted a birthday party for all of our children and grandchildren at a local park. Dottie and I were both exhausted so went to bed early. In Guatemala 100 of our teenagers were able to go to the city and listen to Nicky Cruz. The Cross and the Switchblade is his story. The workers who took our teens said that they were spell-bound and well behaved. 

3/31. Tomorrow we will go to The Woodlands, Texas to stay with Earl and Pat before flying home the following day. Debbie and I went over the financials today. In Guatemala David said that it was very cold and that even the Canadians who are at Casa were cold.
