THE LORD'S BLESSING...


WE HAD BEEN HOME FROM UGANDA FOR THE SUMMER
TO EARN ENOUGH MONEY TO GO BACK.
DAVE WORKED FOR A MAN AT THE CHURCH 
WHERE WE HAD BEEN FOR ABOUT FIVE YEARS.
CARL DECIDED TO PUT DAVE AND HIS OTHER 
WORKER AT HABITAT FOR A WEEK.
I WAS WORKING AT A SECRETARIAL JAIL
 SITUATION IN COUNCIL BLUFF, IA.
IT WAS A CHALLENGE RE: OUR JOBS,
BUT WE LOVED IT AND WE WERE APPRECIATED.
WELL, WE WENT BACK TO UGANDA.
HOWEVER, I TOOK THIS PHOTO OF DAVE THEN,
AND HAVE ALWAYS SMILED WHEN I SAW IT.
THE WORD WORKS NOW VERY WELL,
BECAUSE THE LORD'S BLESSING
IS ALL WE CAN EVER COUNT ON,
FOREVER!

NEW HOPE UGANDA, 1995


AND IT WAS A COUPLE MONTHS AFTER THE HABITAT IN OMAHA.
AND HERE AND THERE HE WAS A PIANO TEACHER AND A COMPUTER TEACHER, AND WAS A MATH AND 
SCIENCE TEACHER IN UGANDA.

I WAS A SECRETARY AT NHU, AND A BOOK TEACHER AND FRENCH LANGUAGE TEACHER THEN.  LIFE HAS SIGNIFICANTLY
CHANGED FOR ME SINCE THEN.
I LOVED IT THERE! AND WAS APPRECIATED.
BOTH OF US STILL HAVE HEARD WONDERFUL
 THINGS ABOUT US FROM FRIENDS THERE--
SOME IN UGUANDA OR IN U.S., CANADA, ENGLAND --
 AND FB-ING AND THANKING US.

THANK YOU, JESUS, FOR BREAKING INTO OUR LIVES
AND BLESSINGS US!
 
AND FOR YEARS HE'S CONTINUED TO BE A 
PIANO/ORGAN PLAYER/TEACHER AND FIXING 
ANYTHING IN ANY HOME OR ANY CHURCH
AND FIXING COMPUTERS FOR PEOPLE,
AND USUALLY GIVING COMPUTERS AWAY AS A
MINISTRY/MISSIONARY GIFT, INSTEAD OF PAYMENT.
HE'S A BLESSING TO MANY!
INCLUDING ME!! FILLED MY HEART WITH LOVE! 
10TH ANNIVERSARY, SEPTEMBER 21, 1995, AND STAYING
AT THE HOTEL AT ENTEBBE, UGANDA.
ANOTHER SPECIAL TREAT!

One of the greatest blessings our Lord can give us as women is a wonderful husband and help meet. You and Dave have many happy memories and blessings worth more than money. Thanks for sharing with us here at Tell me a Story.
