Pastor Wiseman's Oct. 27 update from Haiti

Here's the latest on Pastor Daniel Paul's ministry to the orphans in Ouanaminthe, Haiti...

Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.

Rev. Daniel Paul called today--it was nice to talk with him and share that I had snow falling outside my window. I asked him if they were getting any snow. "No, do what you can to stay warm, " was his response. The snowy weather that he experienced when he was at the seminary in Fort Wayne, IN was a challenging cold to him. However, he appreciated the furnaces. What he did not appreciate was air-conditioning in the summer. He would show up to class with a big winter coat when it was about 90 degrees outside. "Why do they make us sit in refrigerators for class? It is so nice outside!"

His is still shopping for a generator. He thought he had one in Cap Haitian; however, when he arrived it was not available. Port au Prince has a good deal, but the transporting of it would not be very easy. He was encouraged to keep looking for a good deal closer to Ouanaminthe.

They ask for our prayers for their health. Delyse, Archline and Cliney have had to go to get medical help and "some of the little ones" are also dealing with colds and fevers.

The House of the Lambs of God Orphanage is looking forward to the mission team from Lamb of God LCMS coming in December. I understand there are seven dear souls sign up to serve with that team. Let us pray for their service, travel, and plans.

The Lord be with you,

Rev. Sam Wiseman
