Thank you for your prayers. I am feeling better. So are Els and Berta. No one else has become ill. For this we are truly grateful.
I am switching bedrooms tonight. I am tired of the nightly hound choir supplemented in the early morning with the daily rooster competition. It's quieter on the other side of the building.
We've started the program for teenaged girls. The children's program seems to have gone well. The best day of the children’s program was the day I was unable to come. Don't know if that was it or if it was because we persuaded a local Roma church member to translate the main points into Usari.
This evening during the regular worship service the children will sing, share their memory verse, and at least one skit. We are praying that many parents will come with them to hear I John 3:1a, “See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God!”
We have many possible things to do this week: visit another Roma village; repair a couple of roofs on shacks in this village; work with boys; visit women. We are praying for God's leading in the best ways to spend our time.
Here are our prayer requests,
--wisdom in choosing how to spend our time;
--adequate translator support;
--good team work
Thank you again for the power you send through your prayers.
Yours in Christ,
