But God has been faithful and so have you. It is not that there are no times of hunger and lack of funds. Every month the orphanage goes without food for some days, but they all seem to remain so thankful.
Those with few resources are often the most thankful of people. I was reminded of this the other day when God brought to my mind something that happened when Vivian and I were first married. In those days, we had nothing. We lived from day to day.
The event that God brought to my mind seems insignificant now, but I remembered getting some new boots—ones that did not come from the second-hand shop and ones that actually kept my feet warm in the winter as I worked in the woods.
I remember being so thankful to God for those boots.
Now, I have boots and everything that I need, but I don’t know if my thankfulness has kept up with what God has given me. It seems that I was more thankful when I lacked some basic needs.
It is my intention to begin to thank God for every little thing. The children at the orphanage have taught me that.
Here is Joel’s report:

We now need to pay a wire transfer fee with every payment, which amounts to $50 each time, but other than that, your donated money will be used only for purchasing food, clothing, schooling, and other necessities of living. We wait until we have $4000-$5000 before we make the bank transfer to make each transfer more economical. Nothing is held back or diverted for any other purpose. Thanks!
