Lifted Up


A wheel chair lifts up a person who otherwise has been lying or crawling. Now  
Rose, Michel, Issa, Mary, and Michael, for example, can look you in the eye, instead of being looked down upon.

It is a good thing to be lifted up in that way. But that is not enough. We pray that the people we met in Cameroon will trust in Jesus, our Savior and the son of God who "sets on high those who are lowly, and those who mourn are lifted to safety" (Job 5:11).

Their determination is unbelievable. Rose's face was just beautiful as she sat in that chair for the first time. What a ministry.

And I'm glad you're getting "compliments." We had a girl from Ethiopia who freely told people they were fat, all with sincere admiration.

The trip looks remarkable. I'll dive in more when it's not so late. Thanks for letting us in on God's work in Cameroon.
