Today's Report From Missionary John Doroshuk in the Country of Georgia - 9-19-08

Today we went to the outdoor market and bought several boxes of fresh tomatoes and grapes. These were then packaged and we distributed them to 28 families. These people have not tasted a fresh tomato for over one month. They received the tomatoes and grapes as though we were giving them some gold.

The Georgian people are a very meek people. After being in contact with several hundred of them throughout the week, I am amazed that I have not heard one of them rant and rage against the invasion or the Russians.

However, their stories are heart breaking. Most of those in the refugee camps do not have a home to return to. Entire villages of up to one thousand people has been laid totally wasted without one home intact. Some of them will never be able to return to their homes. They will have to start over in some other place.

Thank you so much for your love and prayers. Yes, we need to keep the situation in Georgia covered with prayers as only God knows how things will end up.

Thanks again for your love and prayers. This truly is the time to have part in, "I was hungry and you fed me, I was thirsty and you gave me to drink, I was naked and you clothed me, Sick and in prison and you visited, me ..."

Thank God for you and the saints who are literally fulfilling the words of Jesus. Be blessed with love and grace.

Brother John
