Haitians Have a Saying...

"Sa ou pa konnin pi gran pase ou."
"What you don't know is bigger then you are."

Isn't that the truth?!

For so long, here at RMI in our INTL Office we have struggled with an issue on our computer server.  The ongoing issue has affected the speed of communication between each missionary's computer and the server.  Our main Database that houses all information, including donations, was very sluggish (very very frustrating as it affected our efficiency on many levels).  I have had 3 different Network Engineers come and look at it, and no one was able to address the issue.

Before I go any further, I have to say that I still really respect those engineers.  They did a great job.  But, you know how it is... Sometimes when we lose something, we can look and look, and then another person comes on the scene and finds it right away.  Frustrating, but it is the reality.

Yesterday, the IT guy from our church came over for free to help us out.  He came in and within minutes he found the problem, flipped the magic switch, and we were off and running!  He made some other suggestions that I will be following through on.  He also is coming back in another week or so to help us out some more.

Something so small, yet so big.

Thank God for churches and people that have a kingdom concept!  Praise the Lord!
