10.30.2022 Remember Saintalien? He's the young man we met on his bed in the Dominican Republic who had been badly injured in a motorcycle accident. He couldn't afford an operation to deal with the bone sticking out of his hip area.
Thanks to the Lord and a generous donor, he was able to go to the hospital last week to begin the process for surgery. He returns again this week and then the surgery will be scheduled. I can't even imagine what he's been through and I am so f

October 2, 2022 Does headline news send you reeling? It does me. Sometimes I just want to shut down my emotions and not care. Wars, floods, hurricanes, famines, politics, sickness, on and on and on - and all at the same time. How easy it would be to stop caring - to just worry about myself, my husband, my children, and my grandchildren. It's all too much. There's one little problem with going down that rabbit hole - I am a follower of Christ. I can't follow Christ, who
