Blessings We Forget To Appreciate

Here is a picture of 21 fans that the mission department of my church, Kingsland Baptist, donated to Loaves & Fishes to give to the Bhutanese families here in Houston. I am so honored to be part of a church that truly loves everyone... even if they don't fit into our light skinned community. Kingsland Baptist is here to bring glory to God by helping the widows, orphans, and oppressed, to serve and love on the nations here and abroad.

These fans will be going to the Bhutanese families and I can tell you from experience they are overly grateful to have some cool air blowing in their warm stuffy apartments. All the Bhutanese refugees (all refugees on that matter) come to America not knowing what to expect... in Nepal they don't have running water in their house, no toilets to run to in the middle of the night, no clean water to bath or wash dishes in... nothing is private (I am imagining). So they get here sometimes and can't speak a lick of English, don't know where to by food, but feel they are in luxury because they have running water and bathrooms in their very own house etc... this is the closest to heaven on earth. Can you imagine how they feel? But, when you have luxury... you will need money to pay for that luxury and money is not one of the things these Bhutanese refugees come over here with. So the most precious luxury A/C (which we consider a must here in Houston) will not be used because it is way too expensive. That is where the fans come in... they will use fans for their only source of coolness. So today we gave 8 fans away to elderly families, families with lots of kids, and families with babies. It was such a blessed day to be able to bless others.

To end this blog post I want to share this picture of these elderly Bhutanese man. Isn't he beautiful? This man is always smiling... and when you say Jamisee (I am totally spelling this wrong) meaning Praise the Lord he lights up like I have never seen before. He speaks absolutely no English, but one thing I do know is... we have the same Father and we both love Him so much!
