ABC WEDNESDAY LETTER " N " OOPS!!! This should be letter " O "
Today we are NEARING the half way point on ABC Wednesday,
This weeks letter is " N ".
As you can see from the first photo I am back from my annual trip to Mexicali, Mexico
with 1200 OF my closest friends.
OOPS, in looking back, I realize that this should be letter " O ".
Guess I will have to combine the two letters again.
The theme words are NO and OVERCOMERS.
This is the way the trip started. Prayer and asking for journey mercies.
The best part of the long journey by car, starting with prayer.
Actually 190 vans made the trip and 9 box trucks.
There were many NEGATIVES along the way but we are OVERCOMERS.
Vandals had broken into OUR compound and pulled as much copper tubing and wiring
as they could from various places.
It meant NO electricity OR generators in several vital places.
The generator ON OUR refrigerator truck was damaged to the tune of $3000.00 in repairs.
We are so thankful for the people who stepped up to get things fixed so we could OPERATE
for the 10 days we were there.
Crossing the border was quite a "NO" adventure too.
They didn't want the food trucks crossing.
It was a constant " NO "
Two days of hard NEGOTIATIONS with the Border patrol got food and lumber across.
WE cheered for every car and lumber truck that finally arrived at BaseCamp.
The word "NO" is something we would NOT accept.
At last we could serve food to the hungry campers.
We even dressed in Hawaiian garb to set a party like setting.
The long dusty road with NO NAME.
This shows OUR camp is OUT in the middle of NOWHERE.
At last Tent City was up and the real work could begin.
OVERCOMING the NEGATIVES and NOT taking NO for an answer, that was OUR
The NEW Caretakers home being built last week right in Base Camp.
Hopefully this will NEGATE all the vandalism.
God is good and NUMEROUS lessons were learned in the past 10 days.
