Update from Gloria

Dear friends,
    Greetings to y'all from Haiti. Hope this finds you all well . As for us here in Haiti, we are all surviving quite well . We are all  looking forward to having Trent's back after being here a month without them.  A lot more responsiblity on us but things have been going good. It's been a very uneventful month at clinic we've had one birth so far this month and a couple emergency runs here an there and some patients who required stitches.
     With not much going on at clinic we've been going out to visit people quit a bit. I was really challenged by this verse in Luke 21:1-4  And he looked up an saw the rich men casting their gifts into the treasury.
    And he saw also a certain poor widow casting in thither two mites.
   An he said; of a truth I say unto you that this poor widow hath cast in more than they all:
    For all these have of their abundance cast in unto the offerings of God : but she of her penury hath cast in all the living that she had . 
     It really stood out to me after we had went to visit a older lady that had been on our blood pressure program but with her old bones, walking a couple miles up the mountain doesn't feel so good and she hadn't come to clinic so we went to  visit her . She was so happy that we came to see her. When we were ready to leave she tells one of the little boys that lives in the same house she does to run get something an he comes back with 3 eggs. They wrapped them up nicely in paper for us. They had so little yet they happily shared with us what they had. It made me question myself...do I so willing give everything that God has blessed me with? God has blessed us with a LOT . Are we being content with that or are we always greedily asking for more?
    Another family we went to visit has twins that we delivered at our clinic. They are so much fun to go visit. A very nice happy family. They invite us in with big smiles an she always make us a good meal of chicken or goat meat with rice an red sauce. As we sit there visiting with them, some chickens usually hop into the house pecking away at some bugs or crumbs an the concrete floor ,a cat comes in purring an brushing against your legs (much to my dislike, as I'm not so fond of cats). They're happy and content, they dont need a mansion, fancy cars, or lots of money, etc. 
   Having food and raiment let us be therewith content. 1Timothy 6:8 
  God bless you all, Mis Gloria

 The hypertensive lady who we went to see
                  A foot I sewed up 
This is the lady who we blogged about awhile back that  has a blood sugar ulcer. Its healing up so nicely. Praise God for healing!
