JEAN SAVES THE DAY !!!!
First I would like to thank everyone that donated to Marilyn for New York State of Mind. It is so very kind of you. I knew you would come through. She has money to purchase the camera, if we can figure out which one to buy. The one we were going to buy isn't for sale anymore, so we are back where we started. Marilyn and her friend, are going down there again.
I know you have all heard about the two Amish girls being kidnapped and molested. I am so glad that the people who did this have been arrested. But, it makes us realize that this could happen to our children. David and I realized that we can not send Susan and Katie out to the roadside stand alone. Now either David Sr., Edward, Michael or Thomas (the young man we recently took in our home) or myself must go with them. If we are busy, there is a jar there for people to put money in. This was one of Susan and Katie's chores, but not alone.
Bishop Joseph and Martha, also let their girls go out to their roadside stand, but now, not without their father, mother or older brothers. Some of the people have closed their roadside stands because of what happened to those Amish girls. They feel that no child or woman is safe at a roadside stand.
Our prayers go to those two girls and their family. We know that they will forgive the people for what they did to them as that is the Amish and Mennonite ways. The Lord's way. But, they will never forget what happened to them. Our prayers also go to the people that kidnapped these two girls. That they realize what they did was wrong. They realize they need the Lord and we hope and pray that they come to the Lord.
I don't know if Anna will be on tomorrow or not. If not, I will be back tomorrow and tell you about Thomas, our new Foster Child.
Be With God,
