Crossing Over

This will be our last crew crew post as others will assume this task.

We just crossed over the Saskatchewan border into Manitoba. We are heading to the Acadia Colony near Carberry.

“Crossing Over” for people of faith from this life to the next has profound implications.

Several years ago several of us had the privilege of transporting the Mully Children across Canada.

The driving days were very long and often uncomfortable yet not one complaint not even a “when do we get there?.

So I asked one 16 year old boy:

“Why no complaints?”

His response: “Because when you have nothing and somebody gives you something”

In this case food, water and an education was given.

Mully rescued this boy and his baby sister alone huddled in a mud hut. Their very lives were in peril!

He told me, ” I am studying to become a Doctor and I want to help others as I’ve been helped.”

This exchange had a a deep impact on me. Especially when I complain about my old cell phone or my internet speed.
