About 20 young people showed up every day this week to study the lessons God has for us in the Hebrew Tabernacle. From the fence, to the door, the alter, the basin, the tent, the table of bread, the lamp, the alter of incense...it's all about a Holy God calling sinners into His presence. Sin erects a barrier between us, but God's plan opens a door for us to commune with Him through the sacrifice of His own Son. It's the most beautiful love story, and it's all there in Exodus, years and years before the baby's birth in that Bethlehem manger. What a book, that Bible!
The opening of school has been pushed back on month. It's a nation wide thing. It's happening every year now...since the earthquake in 2010. There just never seems to be enough vacation time for people to be ready for school. I know for a fact that schools will only be 1/4 to 1/2 full the first week in October...even with the extra month for parents to 'get ready'. Haitian education in full of hurdles. The annual school calendar is one of them.
I'll be free to do some more seminars and informal teaching in September. I'm happy for that chance.
There was big rain up in the mountains that washed out the little 'bridge' in our town. The water stopped running the next day, and a temporary crossing is working fine...for now.
We're sooooo glad that the global warming predictions of wicked hurricane seasons continue to be sooooooo wrong. It seems the global warming preachers haven't convinced the wind and rain yet. Maybe they'll come around with some more preaching. :)
I was off-line for several days with an internet connection problem. I'm thankful there are teenagers around here. They got me hooked up and wired in again. It seems to be in their genetic make up.
