late night thoughts…

It’s 12:00 AM Sunday morning in the DR and I am setting alone on the roof of our dorm. I have been thinking about all we have seen and experienced this week and was going through the pictures and videos that we have collected. We have seen so much but this one event really stuck in my mind and I am sure the mind of every other team member. It was a simple rain shower but it broke my heart. Have a blessed Sunday and appreciate all that God has given.

  1. Wow, this was tough to watch…as Josh preached about, some things just aren’t fair. Thanks for keeping us ALL grounded. I enjoyed seeing all of you at 1st service today, evidently showers were working, you all looked great!! Also, enjoyed Harold and Trent’s interview at 2nd service… thanks again for all the effort of keeping us updated. Still praying, and love you all.

  2. thanks Stacha. you have been a real shot in the arm for everyone here all week. We have had a ball kidding Paige about all your blog entries but the truth is we loved eveyone of them. We just love to kid her.

    Sherry and I have fallen in love with a young woman that we were once in love with as a little girl. You are a blessed woman with your two girls. It has been one of the joys of my life to get close to all these kids down here this week. See ya Tuesday.

  3. That video really got to me. We take so many things for granted and don’t realize how blessed we are. I think about all of you throughout the day every day and say a quick prayer for your safety and for the witness and the seeds you are planting there. Tell Jennifer we are so proud of her and can’t wait to hear about the trip and hope you have lots of pictures to show us. Marcy and I will be at the airport Tuesday. You and all of the team are constantly in out prayers. Can’t wait to see you!

  4. This was tough to watch, but probably good for all of us to see. Your blogs, pictures, and videos have helped us to feel a part of your team! We love you guys and are continuing to pray for you. We’ll see you all on Tuesday!

  5. That was very hard to watch, we are very blessed to live in a world of such luxeries. Thank God for being so blessed. Have fun tomorrow at the beach, and see you Tuesday afternoon. Lee Lee thinks that you have been at work all this week. I told her that you were doing some work for God, she said “FOR GOD” with her mouth hanging open and smiling, and then just said OTAY.
    Love you and miss you, be careful.

  6. Just checking on you guys one more time before I go to bed, and I realized several comments mention picking you up at the airport. Just as a logistics concern, Harold, would you have anyone that is going down to call me (999-1105) or the church (526-5026) so we can coordinate travel arrangements? I know you’ll have lots of people to greet you, just want to make sure we don’t have ten vehicles heading down if we can avoid it. Love and prayers for you all!! Can’t wait to hear all about it!!

  7. This video really made an impact. It’s sad to know what conditions there are down there. We will be praying for the kids there…and you guys too! It was a hard video to watch without crying. We take so much for granted. God Bless each of you working down there. Have a safe trip home!

  8. Glad you guys added music to the rain video, you couldn’t have chosen a better one. Hope everyone had fun today, have safe trip back home. I know everyone will be glad to see you. Love you all and God bless.

  9. I sit in tears watching those children. Thank you so much Harold for your great video work while you are there. It does us all a world of good to see this, not that it is easy to watch but we all need it. It humbles me again and helps me to better appreciate what i take for granted everyday. Much love. Can’t wait for your return. I know it has been a blessing.

  10. Harold, thanks for posting this video. As hard as it is to watch, it’s incredibly real. Thank you for your comment. How sweet it is to be loved by those kids. I’m sure hearing him yell your name was precious to your heart. I will definitely be praying for your new friend by name.
