  1. Hi Ellen,

    Here is Eric’s other posting. Look at the time of day he posted it. This LAMP Mission is Eric’s joy, next to his so called “you don’t have a job, go find one” as Winfried would say.

    As of late I feel like I let Eric down…..but I do hope that I will come through with this. Remember today in art class when I told you regarding the pelican….The Pelican, a Christian symbol of atonement. During times when food was scarce, tore a hole in her breast and fed her young with her blood. So faith by itself, if it has no works, is dead.

    It is so easy to say things, but when it comes down to perform at times it is absolutely unforgiving scary. Eric sent me from James 1:5 If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. I sent this passage to Winfried. I also sent him from Deuteronomy 15:10

    Give generously to them and do so without a grudging heart; then because of this the LORD Your God will bless you in all your work and in everything you put your hand to.

    I doubt he even reads it…but I printed this and put it on his dinner place……..he is so difficult at times. sorry I lamented on your shoulder today…..I just have a little bit of a heavy heart. But, this too shall pass.

    I have this little booklet “Life’s Little Treasure Book” on Wisdom. In it I found this saying by Confucius “Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.” If I would send this saying to Winfried….he would just miss understand it.

    I should remember this little treasure….Life is 10 percent what happens to me and 90 percent how I react to it.” Need to go, but read Eric’s LAMP Mission….it is most interesting. Good Night.

    A living Faith: James2:17

    • Angelika this is beautiful and Eric should feel so blessed and loved, respected and happy that you are seeing his heart and his desires in what he is doing through LAMP…Not only is Eric growiing in the Lord, but I can tell that you are too and God will honor all who seek Him and His righteousness. HIS desire is to give us the desires of our hearts when we seek His will first in trust and obedience to His Word.. I continue to pray that Eric and Laura’s compassionate hearts will reap a great harvest. It may take a long time, but God is in control and all things go according to His will, His plan and His purpose and in His time. He just calls us to Be Still and Know that He is God…Ps 46:10…all things work together for good to those who love Him and who are called according to His purpose…Rom 8:28…If we stay on course, the journey God has for us ,HE will never leave us nor forsake us. I know that our Sovereign Lord will sustain Laura and Eric and replace what the locust have taken……They will be rich in HIM as they continue to serve Him and others. I will pray that what you share with Winfred will reach his heart.
      Blessings to you…in His love, Diana
