Oct 2005, I was part of a team that did a home make over for an old one legged man. Today we returned to his home for a visit .. I have not seen him for over a year. It was such a blessing to see the smile on his face when he saw us.
Next we went to see our old Kyrgyz Babushka who lost her home in a fire. I will post some photos when the Internet is back up. The house is absolutely amazing . He family was able to bring her some tushuks and blankets. they also bought her a new hope chest.. suiting I think. She has also bought a wardrobe and made new curtains for the apartment. I just love the colours in her house . She did such a good job with the design. But most of all, you simply could not get the smile off her face,.. Then she showed us the new water heater that we had installed .. she kept telling me in amazement that it was automatic... it actually turns itself on and off to keep the water at the right temperature... I realized that she did not have hot water before.. There is a blessing when you help some one out of a difficult situation, but there is an extra blessing when you set them on higher ground then then they started, never mind dreamed of. Oh wait a second.. "Exceedingly and abundantly more then we could ask or Imagine " this is what we have been a part of.. and it sure feels good.
