UPDATE MARCH 2020
As the content of this update shows, we have continued to receive amazing blessings over the past few months, some coming in strange disguises. We have also experienced nothing short of an amazing miracle, in regard to our Moise, who survived a most brutal attack on Christmas day. Let us not be people who “see but do not see,” but rather, people who see, perceive and appreciate the amazing works of God in our lives and in our Mercy work. In Springs of Carmel 2020 (pg 109), we read that our lives are “programmed for holiness” and that “we need to learn and adopt the etiquette of God“. This puts a very different perspective on everything. The Lord works marvels for us, holy is his name.
