I’ve been flooded with birthday wishes today, thanks to all of you who’ve sent cards, Facebook messages, emails, calls, handshakes, hugs and especially those here who are planning the party for me tonight.
Dominique, the Ewondo/toe guy caught me again today. His toe was doing better after his trip to the hospital, but of course he was already a few dollars in debt with the local guy that sells bandages. I helped once again, this time paying the bandage guy directly rather than passing money.
As well as praying for Dom’s healing, please pray for me, as some of his less-gentle friends were bugging me for money on the way home. I’ll need to talk to them..explaining the difference between starting a friendship before making a request (like Dom) and just yelling/repeating “Our Families are hungry!” at me.
Maybe I need to re-read the story of the Good Samaritan.
Back to work. It’s quite squishy outside…
