Everyone has been working toward school opening on Sept 5th...now the government changed the dates until Oct 3rd. Sure makes for a late date getting out next summer.
The wedding dresses were a "hit". Eight couples were married at TiTanyen church last Saturday. It is such a blessing to see these couples get their lives on the right track. So many have just lived together so long and now that they are saved they see the need to marry. The church helps them as much as they are able but you can see what a blessing the wedding dresses are for each bride.
The Brumley's returned on Friday. Great to have them back. The Erickson's left on Sat. and will be out for over 3 weeks. Pray for them as they travel to 3 states to see their kids and grandchildren. Clinic continues to be very busy. We never lack for patients. I filled in for Sheryl while she was out and now am filling in for Linda while she is away. August is the month I give out school funds for sponsored children. The families of sponsored school children are so grateful to receive these funds. We want to thank each one of you who supports a child in school. Every year we think prices can't go higher and every year they do...especially their books.
Dave and Eileen Brenize will arrive tomorrow for a week. It is always good to have them back here. They ministered with us for 6 years on the GO compound. Eileen continues to direct a ministry called Hope for Tomorrow...there are around 30 Haitian teams in our area and the mountains that do flannelgraph programs weekly for the children in their village. What a ministry.
