A special thanks to Justin Aday who painted the office for our new social worker with the Alabama Baptist Children's Home. The Montgomery Baptist Association is providing her with office space and Justin helped to spruce the room up. She will be in Montgomery soon after being trained at the ABCH.
Things have certainly changed on our land in Jacmel over the last couple of months. The effort has been led by Charley Elgin with Pathfinder Mission. Charley has given almost every waking hour to this project. When he shared with Pastor Paul that Oct. 1 was his deadline, Pastor Paul just laughed knowing that the wheels in Haiti turn very slowly. Obviously, Pastor Paul underestimated Charley! Charley and his wife, Martie, give all the credit to the Lord and their purpose in life is truly bringing glory to God. We are very grateful to the Lord for sending the Elgins our way.
As I write this, David Payne and Hale Keene should be arriving home from Atlanta. They spent the week in Jacmel helping Charley complete top priority jobs so the children can move in Oct. 1. They worked extremely hard and once again God sent just the right people at the right time.
Thanks so much to these two men for all their hard work and their willingness to be a servant in a difficult place.
