Monday morning began with a trip to Cayes on public transportation. I spent the $200 of borrowed money that I had on me to travel there, eat an egg sandwich, and fill a propane tank. Then I headed to the place where they would change a check for me, and I'd start shopping. Except the gentlelady said, "No checks to be changed today. Tomorrow. Goodbye." Well. I stepped outside and started complaining to the folks with me. We checked every other corridor we could think of. Nothing. Then as I stood and complained some more, a lady who had 'saved' me once before showed up there in the street. We shared the story with her. She smiled and said, "Sure I can do that for you...if you buy some groceries from me." I took her up on the offer and filled a big cardboard box with a month's worth of the items I can't buy here in town. Everything worked out fine from there. I regretted not praying when I was stuck. Then I could have said that my prayers did the job. Instead, I must honestly say that while I complained, God did the job for me.
Later that same morning I wanted to see a certain doctor about a friend of mine he is treating. But, I didn't want to bother him as he treated people. As I walked by his front door, he appeared right there...on his way in. He answered my question and we both went on our way. It was a God appointment...in nobody's notebook but His. :)
I bought some chairs so that I can now teach more than three people at a time. I'll buy them four at a time till I have 24. And I got a marker board that'll serve as blackboard. These are exciting little steps forward now that the building is standing. PLUS, I found in town of Cayes the kind of foldable plastic tables that I want for the teaching center. I had thought it would be impossible to find them here. I haven't bought them yet, but I know where there are. :)
God is faithful!
