Many of you have asked me, “What can I do to help you in Haiti?” So I try to let people know when I know of a need! There is a local English school that needs books! Here’s the book they need. Amazon.com has it for anywhere from $15 to $31. We need at least 15. One of our translators, Jorese, teaches at this school, and he is very concerned about the education of young people in our village of Gallet Chambon. He talks with Tony often about how he would like to see them learn English to better their options in the future. Jonathan, Jacob, and Tony actually went with Jorese to his school while we were there at Christmas and Jonathan taught them a song in English. It was “Lord I Lift Your Name on High.” After going to the school, Jonathan became burdened for them too. Of course, I like to look for God’s hand in everything and how He moves things to happen in order to bless people, so when Tony told me about this book Jorese said they needed, I immediately realized the reason God had the boys go to the school over the holidays! God wants to use people here to bless these students by buying them books! Wow. That is so exciting!
Above is a picture of the dictionary/textbook they use in the English school down the road from our house. Send me an email if you feel led to purchase one (about $16-20) and I will let you know where to send it!! If you want to just go to Amazon.com and buy it without emailing me, that’s fine too. Just make sure you have it delivered to our But God Ministries office. Here’s the address:

Stan is going down there near the end of January and he has said he can pack some extra things. Wouldn’t it be exciting for him to show up and give Jorese enough textbooks for his students each to have one?! Oh my, I can hardly stand it, I am so excited. We have an AMAZING Father who knows our needs, and He is constantly working in our lives to meet those needs.
Thank you!…and be led!

Thank you so much Peg!! Tony told Jorese today about the dictionaries and he is so excited! I cannot wait to be able to give them these dictionaries. It is such a pleasure to be able to share these opportunities with God’s people to give them an chance to be a part of it all. Such a blessing!
