Day 8, Wednesday – Shopping in Chiguanas and Hindu Temple

Today we visited the local shopping hub and get some last minute gifts.  We found Trinidad futbol jerseys so everyone on the team got one!

Finally we visited a Hindu shrine to the deity/idol/monkey god Hanuman.  I asked our host what the legend is surrounding it was, this was the story I heard.   Apparently Hanuman is famous for being dispatched to a particular mountain to collect a specific flower for medicinal purposes.  When he arrived, he forgot what flower he was looking for and just returned with the whole mountain.  Apparently Hindu gods are long on strength but short on brains. I’m thankful that we serve a God who never forgets!

  1. lets not forget the soil you walk upon there; the flowers,the people and there prayer belong to the mountain as much as the mountain belongs to them- and weather you have brain or braun,serve God or Gods- gosple has no boundries. Surely if we indeed are the son and daughters of God forgetfulness shall be forgiven.

    • I am the LORD, that is My name;
      I will not give My glory to another,
      Nor My praise to graven images (Isaiah 42:8).

      “For there is one [hen] God, and one mediator also between God and men, the man Christ Jesus,” 1 Timothy 2:5

      “Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God” 1 Timothy 1:17

      “And Yahweh will be king over all the earth; in that day Yahweh will be the only one, and His name the only one.” Zechariah 14:9

      “Is there any God besides Me, Or is there any other Rock? I know of none.” Isaiah 44:8

      “Before Me there was no God formed, And there will be none after Me.” Isaiah 43:10

      “Yahweh is God; there is no one else.” 1 Kings 8:60

      There is one body and one Spirit, one hope, one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all who is over all and through all and in all.” Ephesians 4:4-6

      I’m sorry Jim, but our God does not allow us to worship any other. Jesus says “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No one comes to the Father, but by Me” (John 14:6) We must worship Him alone or face eternal separation apart from Him.

  5. I have got 1 idea for your web site. It seems like right now there are a couple of cascading stylesheet troubles while opening a selection of webpages within google chrome and firefox. It is functioning okay in internet explorer. Probably you can double check that.

  6. I experimented with viewing your blog with my mobile phone and the structure doesnt seem to be correct. Might wanna check it out on WAP as well as it seems most cellphone layouts are not really working with your website.

  18. I was wanting to know if you ever considered modifying the design of your web site? Its well written; I really like what you have got to state. But maybe you could add a little more in the way of content so people can connect with it better. You have got an awful lot of wording for only having one or two photos. Maybe you can space it out better?
