Dear Praying Friends, We are excited to share with you what the Lord has been doing in our ministry over the last couple of months.

New Births, New People, New Problems, New Home!
The last couple of months since our last prayer update have been a flurry of activity. Let me start by saying that Lindsey and Violet are doing well.
