“I read this yesterday, ‘Samuel then took a large stone. He named it Ebenezer (‘stone of help’), for he said, “Up to this point the LORD has helped us!”’ 1.Sam 7: 12 In great fear of their enemies Israel asks Samuel for prayer. He calls the people to repent and to obey God 100%. In the presence of the assembled people Samuel sacrifices a lamb. God’s supernatural intervention defeats the enemies. Reading about this stone of remembrance I had to think about the many ‘standing stones’ you see in Madagascar. They are signs to remember important people or events. March 2019 is such a memorial for me. It is 18 years ago that I arrived here. Looking back over this time, I can gratefully say “up to this point the Lord has helped me”. He wants us to thank him. Sure!y, we all have many reasons to thank God. Where do you want to set up your ‘Ebenezer’?”
