The Faithful One - Sheri Williams!

We had a fun day together painting Meir's apartment. Sheri Williams, pictured above, has been with us on five trips and still coming and painting. She and Ann painted the kitchen and bathroom while we worked on the salon (living room) and hallway. The apartment was so tiny we could not all work in the same room.  We were entertained while we worked with Meir's stories of his life. He came with his parents to Israel from Romania when he was 3 years old. He has worked in many capacities, such as owning a bakery, running a hotel and his last job was tour guide. He now spends most of his day in a wheelchair. He has a very independent nature and loves to entertain.  Meir was very grateful for our days labor. We will go back next week and paint his two tiny bedrooms. We saw many things that needed repair and cleaning but he would not hear of us doing more.  I think it is much harder to receive help than give help.

Art class 101

Meir is hiding in the plants supervising David's painting.

This was a wonderful way to spend a rainy day. I know it meant a lot to Meir. Please pray for Meir. As we were getting ready to leave he hit his eye on the corner of a sharp ledge on the wall and his eye was immediately turned red.  

David has had enough. He is ready to go.

Tomorrow we head to the Galilee. Rain is predicted for the rest of the week. We are still working out the details to take a boat trip on the Sea of Galilee for Wednesday.  If it is stormy we may not go. We have not yet perfected walking on water if the boat begins to sink. Please continue to pray for us and all of Israel.

Yesterday I forgot to post this picture of an Ethiopian man entertaining us with an instrument from Ethiopia. No one knew the name of the instrument in English but it had an unusual sound.
