Today was our first day of work and work we did. Hope you enjoy the photos. But we did so much more. The healing has begun. We installed a new faucet for a family and the wife cried. The faucet was leaking terribly and they were embarrassed to tell us. It didn’t take long for us to figure it out. But we did so much more than just work. In the words of the Pioneer Bible Translators, we helped with Bible Translation. How did we do that? Simple, we freed these missionaries up to do the work at hand. Yes it really is all about the work.
But wait, there is more. It is about humility also. We want humility that demands an explanation. If our work is only for our glory we haven’t achieved anything. Our work is for the glory of God. And boy are we having fun doing it. We have learned funny songs, watched goats fight; chickens escape and yes work until we are almost too tired to move forward. We have played with small children and been very blessed in the process.
Tomorrow is another day and another lesson. Watch and wait with us as we expect what lies ahead. We are beginning to understand why Satan was so afraid of this trip happening.
Also, we have a prayer request. Please pray for Angie. We can’t say more now but the request was to pray for her every hour of every day. Angie needs God now in her hour of need and we have prayed down here for Angie. Please join us.

Sounds like you guys are having a great time! More important sounds like you are right where God would have you be doing what Satan is so afraid of… loving. Yes I will be praying for you and Angie.
I loved seeing the pictures today! It was so good to hear that work is already being accomplished. Daily prayers are lifted up for your team. One of the best ways to grow and to make a difference is to remove our eyes from ourselves and fill a need for someone else. Remember that the blessing comes in the obeying. Halle and Emilee, I love you; remember to RELY!!!!!!!!
