:: We started school almost two weeks ago. We started with half days for the first week... ease our way into our busier schedule. This week, we have fully picked up steam and are marching forward through new curriculum. The day before school started, we had a back to school swim party.
::The Lord has provided us with new teammates! What a huge blessing to have Charles and Connie Jackson and their son Noah on the field with us. Charles will be working with Eric at Knox Theological College and in the village churches. Connie is looking towards helping our little village schools with teacher training and other help and support as needed.
:: We were able to go to court and gain full fostering custody of Denise last week. Previously, we had been keeping her under a temporary custody ruling. Now we have the full three year fostering custody. Praise the Lord! Please pray with us that the Lord would see fit to grant us legal guardianship before we would like to take furlough sometime next year. She is not allowed to leave the country until we have legal guardianship. By this time next year, it will have been a full four years since we have seen our families and we would like to be able to travel with her while we visit home and do the work of furlough. She's doing really well these days! Every week we see improvements on understanding family, English language, reading, etc... So thankful for God's good gift to us!
Thank you for keeping us in your prayers! We are grateful to God for all he has done to take care of us!
