Meditation : To See God’s Word


The Somos Amigos Medical Mission provides medical and dental care for needy patients in a rural area of the Dominican Republic, not too far from the Haitian border.  An older Haitian man came to the clinic for medical attention.  Dr. Jim examined him and gave him the appropriate medications.  As his visit concluded, the gentleman asked Dr. Jim if it would be possible for him to get a pair of reading glasses so he could read his Bible.  Dr. Jim was able to locate the right glasses for the man and was brought to tears as he watched his patient pull a small, worn French Bible from his pocket so he could try out the glasses.  He nodded with pleasure.  The new glasses enabled the Haitian man to see the tiny print and read God’s word again.

“Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.”    Psalm 119:105
