Interruption of blog Tuesday, June 7, 2016
During the next two weeks our usual blog from the Hermitage will be interrupted as the battery for our solar panel is very old and finally has reached the point where it can no longer serve us. Normally we would just switch over to the generator but we are out of funds and unable to purchase fuel or a new battery.
While I was in New Mexico, so many people donated funds to purchase medicines and medical supplies for our sick poor brothers and sisters and I want to thank all of you who were able to help. The donations allowed me to purchase medicine and supplies that are not available here in The Gambia. What funds remained after the U.S. purchases were quickly used to buy our usual medications and supplies locally as soon as I returned home to The Gambia. May God bless you for your merciful and generous help. I thank everyone of you who have been able to help us financially and for those who were praying for us. Certainly your good prayers were answered.
But, now we must wait until June 22nd for my SS check to arrive in order to purchase the new solar battery and also fuel for the generator.
Sorry for this interruption.
In His most merciful love,
brother dismas Mary
