Last Sunday we had a wonderful visit at Celebration Church in Kingsport, Tennessee. It was great seeing the mission board as well as staying with Kelly Abon’s family. We got to see her 4 daughters and son who just celebrated his first birthday. As some of you may remember, Kelly was in the Marshall Islands when we were and she and Mariesa worked together in a clinic. Please be praying for Abon Abon, Kelly’s husband. He had to make an emergency trip to the Marshall Islands because his brother passed away. Pray for the family and his safe return this week.
We had to make a detour in our itinerating. When we arrived in Tennessee we were once again having trouble with our vehicle. Instead of going on to Virginia as planned, we came back to Brevard, North Carolina where we know a trusted mechanic. He worked on our car Monday and we should be back on the road today. We will continue our trip to Virginia. Thank you for your prayers.
Rick and Judy Jennings have been so dear to us for many years and this year they have certainly proved their love. We stayed at their house again last night and enjoyed their fellowship so much. (Thanks Rick for letting me win the game.)
I would like to personally thank everyone for the prayers for my father. He is recovering but slower than he would like. He is not used to being unable to plant his garden and do everything for himself. Please continue to pray for him.
We are looking forward to getting back on the road and visiting m ore friends and supporters. Don’t forget you can reach us at 850-728-4761 while we are in the U.S. and you can visit us at www.newheartint.org or www.newheartint.com or www.newheartint.info.
You are precious to us and to the Lord.
