Hello again,
Thank you for all your prayers. We certainly appreciate them. We have a new little boy at the orphanage. He is 4 years old, and
for right now is being called Sunday. I am pretty sure he has a name, but he does not seem to know it or at least he isn't sharing it.
Nathan is trying to get more information. Please pray we are able to, sometimes this seems to take an incredibly long time. This will bring us up to 40 children that we are taking full time responsibility for.
Tomorrow Mike has a meeting with all three of our school directors. Pray we have a good meeting, with good communication and that we can get an accurate count of the number of children that will need curriculum and uniforms. An accurate count will also help us to know if we have hired the right amount of teachers for fall.
Today was the last day of the youth event. Mike said it was a really good day. Two kids came forward and gave their lives to the Lord.
Tomorrow there may be a baptism in the river. Also the team will go up to Peru (pay-roo). For those of you that do not know, Peru is a small village about 1 1/2 hours northeast of us. It is in the mountains and we have been asked to be a part of the village. I have posted photos of Peru on this blog if you are interested, scroll to the bottom of this page and click on "older posts". They are part way down the page that will come up first. We have started a church and in the fall will be starting school up there. They still use a creek down in a ravine as a water source, and it is not clean drinkable water, but it is all they have. We are working on trying to change that. Please pray that God continues to move in Peru and that the team is a blessing to the community. Also please pray for safe travel to and from Peru.
Mike said that the pastor's conference went very well today. Some of the pastor's brought elders from their churches with them. Mike said they had about 50 people attending. Both Jeremy and Mike taught. They were thankful for your prayers.
The meeting about the trees for reforestation has been moved again, they are now supposed to meet tomorrow morning. It seems
to be the Haitian way.
Many Blessings,
