Haugh Happenings

30 Sep

We’ve just returned from a week in Pennsylvania. My sister and brother-in-law were able to go on vacation for a bit. It was a much needed time away. My mother is good natured and spends a good part of her day reading the Bible as well as some of her Bible devotionals. When she can’t sleep at night, she prays. My take away this week is doing the same: start praying when I am restless and can’t sleep.

Our oldest daughter, Laura, has taken two trips to Honduras with a group called “Glow” (Go Love Our World). Last night we joined others, listening to stories of the wonderful work that has been done by this group over the last couple of years. Laura, along with her husband, Josh, led our time in musical worship. We were in the middle of the woods on a hill just named “Halleluia Hilltop.” What fun! My goal is not just to be generous, but for it to be sacrificial as I look at the needs around me.

Ken has just arrived in Dallas, Texas. He has a full week of meetings with a number of members, looking over their financial profiles and helping them plan for their future retirement whether it is one year or 30 years hence. Thank you for praying for him. Each person is unique and requires a unique conversation.

You are unique as well! Thank you for joining in with us as we serve together supporting the work of Bible Translation.

    Always glad to hear from you and always glad for news of your mother. I have been doing the same thing – praying when I can’t sleep – for years. When I pray for my missionary friends, it may very well be the middle of the day where they are – and they need prayer at that time. I like to think that God will trust me to pray and that it is He who sometimes awakens me for that very purpose. I am also glad to hear about Laura’s service to the Lord. I have prayed for her for many years also and so thankful that God answers prayer. I know she has been through some difficult waters for a young adult. But they have a way of ‘growing us’. In my new chapter of my life, I am hoping it will be a short one and that I too may soon be reunited with Uncle Ken. Is that selfish? Well, at least I know it won’t be 74 years!! Hah! Praying for you always. Love, Aunt Flo

      Oh, Aunt Flo, my mother tells God every night that she is ready to go to heaven. That’s not a bad thing. We wish we lived closer. We love you dearly.

        With Uncle Ken going Home, I am the last of our generation. Everyone has preceded me. I like to think they are anxiously waiting for me to arrive – the baby of the group! Long life is nice, but you attend many funeral services. I agree with your Mother. I’m ready to go too. Yes, wish we all lived a little closer. In the “good old days” you could always walk to a relative or a friend’s house – – and not even call ahead – – we had no phones!!! Hah! I was 16 when we got our first one.
