NEVER KNOW HOW TO DEFINE ED DICKSON. Ed and Pastor Bill from Canada came to Iskra Men's Home with us yesterday and we had a grand time seeing all the renovations. The men were hard at work painting the new heaters, and working in the dining room.
It will be a fabulous party tomorrow as we join together with Kyle and Christy tomorrow morning to celebrate the progress being made. We will have a concert, deliver 300 samsas (meat pies), 300 bottles of juice, 300 ice cream cones. Whew...what a time we will have and how fun it will be to give EVERY man his own bottle of juice, pie and cone. (Just imagine the van with 300 bottles of juice heading that way - Isar once again will bless us with his BIG new bus!)
Yesterday we shared and just spent a little time with the men - focusing on the group of men who are locked into the second floor behind the building. Pastor Bill shared with them and several men asked him to pray with them so they too could have a closer relationship with God. What a blessed time. We gave the men little treats, lots of hugs and lots of hand shakes. How we do love these men.
Pastor Bill had some wonderful stories he told them - and they were totally captive in their attention. WE ARE SO THANKFUL FOR TEAMS AND VISITORS WHO CARE ENOUGH TO SHARE AND SPEND TIME WITH US WITH THESE DEAR MEN.
THANK YOU ED AND PASTOR BILL...YOU BLESSED OUR DAYS.
