The GOOD SAMARITAN has always been a model for us to strive for, as it says, in Luke 10 that he “came where the man was”, no fear or judgment, he “saw him and had compassion” and took care of him. Jesus said “which one was a neighbor?” They answered the one who had mercy, and he said “go and do likewise”.

That is what we strive to do, to show mercy and be a friend indeed, as taken from our theme verse “a friend loveth at all times; and a brother is born for adversity”. Prov. 17:17

These two women represent the many we have befriended, counseled, cared for and we will continue to “go and do likewise” to all those who need us.

We had a great time celebrating Christ’s love for us in coming to earth as a tiny babe, our Emmanuel, God WITH us!!   I had the opportunity to serve each couple and honor each wife or spouse as by their sacrifices of time away from their husband or wife, they are as much a part of this ministry as all of us!  It was such a blessed time. Afterwards, we went to swim in the pool with the kids (yes, the advantages of Christmas in Togo!) and had a blast!  Enjoy these photos.

Prayer Retreat on the Mountain – December 2015

Mountaintop Experience – Always

Every November or December, we, as the Founders of ALMA, draw away to the mountains above us to pray, to get away from the everyday distractions for awhile, to hear God through intense seeking and listening individually and together.  We seek HIM in the Word  and we worship Him without interruption except by the lovely voices of the Sisters in whose guesthouse we lodge, which is quite angelic. We take nature walks and breathe in His beauty all around us. We stop and pause to really love and be loved our Heavenly Creator and Father.  We pray that as we descend, that we will make decisions that lift Him, glorify Him, bring Him honor and that we will be able to withstand the fiery darts of Satan, and claim continually the victory we already have in Christ!  It is by far the most important thing we do in this ministry!!
