Thoughts at Dawn

Posted on Jul 03 , 2012 in Blog & Ongoing

Today is July the third and I woke up at 4:45 am thinking what a pleasant night it is. Little did I realize that today the line for the shower began at 4:30, so I was already late. But no problem, God whispered to Naomi and she heard “Chuck needs coffee.” So, like a warm spring fountain in the midst of the kalahari, facing me as I turned, a beautiful, perfectly heated and flavored was a can of nihon no kohee calling, “chyaku, chyaku, here I am. Come forth and taste my sweet blessing of mana.” How could I resist, there was no glowing light, no proverbial deep voices, but the top of the can glittered in the morning light like a halo. So I figured, a prayer was answered.

Now on a more honest note, what a true blessing to be able to feel useful to people in need and as well to feel that others are holding you up when your personal support tank is near empty. While God is ever present, it is still amazing to see HIM in the eyes of those sharing their story and in the tears washing down the faces of those receiving their testimony.

We still walk around and see houses that appear missed by the great wave, but peering in the windows we see the mold on the ceiling and the water lines 6 or more feet on the walls. It becomes evident that no one is living in the building, as it is still uninhabitable. The good news is, we are here to help change this. Today part of our team will join the Canada team and others will join our new friends from Tennessee. Please pray for us.

God bless you all at home and thank you so much for giving us this chance and keeping us in your prayers. We will keep you updated with words, pictures, videos, and our thoughts.
