We want to thank all of you for your prayers. Our July team has made it safely to the children’s village and enjoyed a fun day with the children. They actually had almost 100 children as today was the official first day of the Community Children’s Ministry in Marose. We have been ministering for almost 5 ½ years to the children here in Marose, through the children’s village, school, clinic, youth group etc. but, today was the first day of our new program. We started this same program over a year ago in Perou and 6 months ago in Poteau and Pass Rein. We also started this new program in Marotte today. Basically it is a precursor to the Awana program, which we will be starting in the fall. We are one of two ministries chosen for the International Awana Children’s pilot program in Haiti. Today we played games, shared bible stories, played sports, and instead of snacks we fed the children lunch. The community children also came into our children’s village and played on our new playground.
I would really appreciate your prayers for the health of the children. I have another 7 cases of mumps. It would be great if these were the last J Up until now all of the children with the mumps have been boys, but today the first girl came down with the mumps. We really need the prayer covering.
I wrote the above e-mail last night. This morning, Sunday, Mike will be preaching in Poteau. Nathan will be leading worship and preaching in Pass Rein. Please pray for the Spirit of God to be moving. We also start our first night of the back to back revival meetings in Pass Rein and Marose. Again thank you so very much for your prayers.
