“Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat or what ye shall drink, nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat and the body than raiment?” Matthew 6:25
Some people have mentioned concern about our food situation way up here in the mountains during the rainy season. It is impossible to bring much in with us on our backs now. We did bring some food in on our last trip in the truck, but not enough. We do have 3 things for sure: Mountain rice, Yellow beans (gone mouldy already)! and a large bag of oats donated by a man in southern Thailand. Oats are not grown here and have to be imported. They are hard to find and expensive when you find them. What an unexpected nourishing treat!
God makes provision for all our needs! He is constantly supplying me physically, mentally and spiritually. Now He is supplying food!
The school sends their sick students and teachers up for me to take care of. They are so appreciative that they send us food! Two pumpkins, 2 flats of eggs, a box of cookies!
Many banana trees and pineapple plants grow around our house. When the fruit is just about ready to pick the village people come and pick it. They need it more than we do, but this one is just about growing into our house! I think we will eat these delicious bananas.
Just when we were missing vegetables, we were shown a little weed in our back yard. The karen call it SiCoeMiDau, which means horse hoof greens. It has a round, fluted edged leaf. You can eat the leaf, stem and roots! They taste like parsley only just a little bitter. I know it must be good for you!
In end times Jesus says our bread and water shall be sure, but in Thailand it is rice and water. Right now He has sent us much much more! The windows of heaven are open always! Thank you dear Father in Heaven!
