I have traveled this road for a very long time. It all began in a little house in the countryside. But the path has taken me to far away places. Will you join me on this journey? You will learn a lot about other people and places around this world. Are you ready? It will be a fun trip. So let's get started. [mp3]

垃圾中寻宝 Where's the Money?


When we lived on an island in the Caribbean, we had a large 50-gallon steel barrel that we put our trash in. Sometimes donkeys that roam during the night would upset drum and scatter the trash all over the road. This always made me angry because I had to pick it all up again. One time our trash barrel was overloaded and should have been picked up by the collectors several days ago. I was so relieved to see the truck coming but, to my dismay, it went right past my overloaded trash barrel without stopping. The next day, I waited for the truck and stood in the middle of the street to stop it. The men were not happy but they picked up my trash that day.

Another day, near the end of the month, I had some paper money on the table along with some other papers that I had to clear off before supper. The next day, I looked all over the house for the money to go to the store and I could not find it. I prayed that it wasn't lost because it was all the money I had to buy food for our family. Just then God spoke to my mind to go out to the trash barrel to look for it. I thought, "This is so silly," but I went because I was desperate.

It was very windy on the island and sometimes trash would blow away if the barrel was too full. What was more, the trash collectors were due to pick up our trash that very day. I walked up to the barrel and immediately saw the money waving in the breeze. God had answered my prayer. This was one time when I was glad that the trash had not yet been collected.

Trash - Waste material or things that are no longer wanted or needed.
Desperate - Having a very great need or want.
