I looked at the last time I updated and was so excited that it had only been a couple of months. Then it dawned on me that May was a long time ago. So sorry for the wait.
We have been busy with school, doctor visits, and therapy.
We also have a new face that didn’t make the group picture.
Skarly is five years old, and seems to be adapting well to our home. She is very energetic and can be head strong, but she has already found a special place in my heart. The problem is that there are now four kids in kinder and they are all leaders. Not a single follower in the bunch.
Speaking of kindergarten, I was asked to help with the kinder class a few months ago. I was teaching, but now am just helping another girl with preparing the lesson and she is teaching the class. It seems to be working out. The school year ends in November, so we are almost done.
I just realized that Nicol is not in the picture either. She and her sister have been with us since January. She is super sweet.
Birthday season is upon us. It gets to be that the kids expect cake and Pepsi all the time. The good thing is that Gerson now understands the difference in his birthday and other peoples birthdays.
I would appreciate prayer for my teen helpers. Some are not saved and others need to grow spiritually. They have had some trials lately with family and friends leaving.
Hermana Denia, the lady who comes to help us, is recovering from surgery. She is doing well, but gets very stressed to be sitting at home doing nothing. She is such a blessing to us, and is greatly missed. Please pray that her recovery will be quick and that God will give her grace to rest.
I was told by a social service worker that Samuel, who you have been praying for, has been adopted by a family in Canada. Some people will think of this as good news, but we have no idea what kind of spiritual ground he has arrived on. My prayer for him is, and always has been, that God will do for our Samuel what he did for Hannah’s Samuel in the Old Testament. Raised among people so wicked that God cursed them, yet he became one of the greatest prophets of all time.
Thank you all for your prayers and support (and your patience in getting updates).
God bless your harvest season.
