oh happy day, part 28

We had quite a few new families join us on our trip to Juarez this month—and it was great fun to watch them patiently haul supplies and stack diapers/formula for the picture and then haul supplies again…before carefully putting everything on the shelves to await distribution.

I swear sometimes God might be trying to kill me. I thought the stories surrounding load 27 would do me in. Little did I know load 28 would be just as wonderful! On the last night of our trip we were sitting at church listening to various members of the congregation sing and speak, when Elizabeth, Pastor Miguel’s wife, called up the kids who had been recipients of the diapers and formula you’d given. Elizabeth expressed powerful words of gratitude to you all for helping these dear families.

Of course I had taken a picture of the gift that started it all. And 28 loads later I’m still taking pictures…thanks to your continued support of the babies of Juarez. God sure does love his babies!
