A “quick” update. It’s been an interesting year so far.
It started out with a trip to the states for refreshing. Then shortly after my return, we voted in Pastor Uriel as the new pastor and leader of the children’s home. Pastor Uriel is a national pastor who studied at the Bible institute here at the children’s home. His wife, Margarita, grew up in the home and also attended the Bible institute. Pastor Uriel has been pastoring one of the church plants for over twenty years and appears to have a heart for the Lord and the ministry here.
Brother Ronnie, who has been on the field for thirty years, has plans to make rounds of his supporting churches. He felt that this change was necessary due to his age and health issues.
Manuel, who is 12 years old, has been having light seizures once or twice a year since he came to live with us 7 years ago. One neurologist had him on medicine, and the next took him off it. This last October he started to have pretty bad seizures and more frequent. His electroencephalogram came back good but he needs a CAT-scan as well. Please pray that we will find why he is having more trouble with seizures and be able to control them.
