Erie, PA –
Saturday, August 19, 2006
Our demonstration today was a true picture of
our life at home which includes many large families
with lots of little children. There were about
25 here today between the ages of 2 months and
13 years old.
That was a lot to contain as the
first part of the day it poured rain from the
time we pulled into a parking lot across the
street from a fair that they call Erie Days.
At last, the sun broke out and we were able to
play a little music and dance. What a sight with
folks of so many sizes in our circle.
Things finally started happening in Erie, PA
A gentle and hurting man spent time pouring
his heart out to Nehemiah. He was amazed that
we could live this way, seeing all the parents
and children together. Through it all he saw
a hope that made him want to continue his relationship
A very young man loved our life and wanted
to come home with us. But he and we totally respected
his mother’s dissent, and we hope to see
him sometime in the future.
Our brother Natsar visited his parents from
Erie, and they brought their pastor with them.
He was delighted with what we were doing, and
expressed his dissatisfaction with Christianity
and the churches today, saying that they are
not bearing the fruit that God intended for them.
He gladly took our papers.
His friends on the opposite end of the spectrum
are slowly beginning to hear the truth of what
our life is really like after only having preconceived
notions. It is dawning on them that we are nothing
more than a people who love one another and want
to serve God with all our hearts and nothing
More coming soon!!!
