The Next Sunday

One week ago, our rig came off the ship damaged. We didn’t know if it was destroyed or not.
One week ago, a couple of kids playing with matches started a brush fire that became a wind driven firestorm that destroyed 88 homes in Valparaiso’s Cerro La Cruz neighborhood. That fire became known as The Inferno of La Cruz.

Today, one week later, the next Sunday, we returned to Cerro La Cruz.

    Doug and Stephanie,

    I’m really sorry to hear about the damage to the rig but it sounds like you’ve made the best of the bad situation. Is there anything I can do to help? Do you need any replacement parts for the boxes?

    I sure wish I was traveling with you. I really enjoy your blogs.

    Keep up the good work.

    I am so enjoying hearing about your adventures, very touching. I look forward to more. What a blessing to hear the human side of it all. Stay safe, I will keep you in prayer and look forward to seeing you in person again. If there is ever anything I can do from here for you, just let me know! Hugs, Dorothy

    Dear Doug and Steph,

    You definitely had a divine appointment. We will be praying the Lord will guide your travels and allow you to be His hands and voice. If you have a Bible read Matthew 25:31-40.
