It's a Small Small World!

Does the name Regina Benjamin ring a bell? It did for my son Paul when recently he was reading the news and saw her name. But he'll tell you his own story, if you'll just pop on over to his blog Dental Nation and take a look at his post "Sherpa Nell." (The above picture was taken a few years ago when my son Paul was participating in a Christian mission to help the children of an orphanage in Flores, Honduras.)

An excerpt from Paul's post:
"We drove to Flores, a small mountain village with one church and a boys' and girls' school and orphanage run by a Christian non-profit organization. The tiny cement block "clinic" building would be our office for the next two weeks. We unloaded all of our supplies, arranged our dental and medical treatment areas, and prepared medications for the first day of service."


  1. Hello Sweet Lady!

    I tried to go to your sons site and it says that the blog has been removed??? :(


  2. Ohmygosh, thanks so much for the heads-up, Karyn. There was a typo in the link I entered. It's fixed now. If you have a minute check back...

  3. What an incredible story! I loved reading about the experience your son had and the time that he got to spend with these two amazing and selfless women! It is a small world indeed!

  4. I read your son's blog post, Coralie. God is in EVERY detail and He blessed your son's every step. How wonderful it must be for him to know firsthand someone so deeply revered and loved.

    God is good. All the time.


  5. Bravo Mom for raising such an AMAZING son! What a phenomenal story!

  6. The Duchess of Tea has bestowed a title upon you. Her Grace requests the honour of your presence at the knighting ceremony to be held at Rose Tea Cottage.
