Israel had a visitor today: his boss, Dennis Byler, flew in from Alaska to see Israel! Israel was encouraged in the Lord by his visit with Dennis. God sends encouragements in so many ways, even in trying circumstances. Israel had a much better day with his pain. The doctor came and checked on him this morning and prescribed some new pain medication which seems to have helped. He also got some good , old- fashioned remedy for healing :REST. This was a big boost. Cori was encouraged as well today. They were also able to go over their house plans with Dennis so that we can go forward in the building of their house. Thanks to all of you who have made this incredible need possible!!!
Here is a thought for the day that we feel describes all of you who have seen your brother in need and have lended such gracious hands unto him. Matthew 25: 31- 40-” When the Son of Man shall come in his glory,.. Then shall the King say unto them on His right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: For I was hungry , and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty , and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: Naked, and you clothed me: I was sick , and ye visited me: I was in prison , and ye came unto me.They shall the righteous answer Him , saying, Lord, when saw we thee hungry, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink? when saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee? Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee? And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Insomuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.”
