Hi again dear ones!

July is here and today it is sure cold! Our sun decided to go on strike. We have heavy clouds since yesterday aft. This a.m. the mountains around us came out with snow real far down, but then they went back under all those clouds. I imagine it is snowing again up there. When it is cloudy, temperatures don't go down as far at nights, but the sun, which warms us and the water up in the day is absent, so it is cold all the way around! Oh well, we are thankful for it all!

Elections were last month, and the nationalist guy won. He is saying he will be moderate, so please help us pray - and for the continued freedom to spread God's precious Word. We are real thankful for this privilege, and want to take advantage of it all we can!

Finally I can say that the adoption we were helping in is complete! The family, with their 13 year old daughter, should be back home now in No.Va. It sure was a long haul for them, and not real easy, but this precious soul and life are worth it. Please help us pray for adjustments and language learning, and most of all that this dear young teen gal will truly come to know our Saviour. A challenge, but thankfully God is on their side!

Mentioning children and their needs, there are two more precious children, a sister and brother, 12 and 9 years old, in a good Christian children's home, who really do need adopting. We all thought a Christian family from California was going to adopt them and now it appears they are not going to and the children were also thinking they would finally get a real mom and dad (they are orphans), so we are praying for a real Christian family for them, here or abroad. These are really precious children, orphans, but do have a good spirit and want to follow the Lord. Thanks for praying with us! This home has needs, but is really doing a wonderful job with these needy children.

The ex ambulance did not sell. Bob is using it and wondering if he should just keep it till the end of the year. We trust we will be able to take a trip to the U.S. early Jan. and we know God can and will supply the right vehicle for us when we get back, so please help us pray about all that too. Thanks!

About trips, I did have one on June 11. Like, I had a big trip, will see you next fall. (Ha.) I took a nose dive, literally. Managed to break my poor old nose, and deviated the septum more than it already was deviated. So for a good 3 weeks I looked like I had come out of a combat zone, or as I told my 7th graders, was training to beat Kina. (Perú has the women's international boxing champ.) Well, I never would beat her, nor do I intend to try. The nose is getting slowly better. Decided not to have the op. the dr. offered, as he even said if the deviated septum is also from earlier falls, it wouldn't be easy at all to straighten it. He might be able to reduce the fracture some, but it is expensive and difficult. So it is slowly healing, the bruised cheeks, knee and arm are also slowly healing. I do have more nose bleeds and stuffiness nights, so please help me pray for grace to look like Rudolf the red nosed reindeer for the rest of my life. Thanks!

School is going well, but busy. Thanks for helping us pray for the lives we touch each day, that the students, teachers and parents will come to know the Lord. This is difficult in these days of so much world, all around us, and penetrating in the church too. A real privilege and challenge to be teaching so many in the ways of the Lord.

Our own precious children, now in their 40's, except Joe, who is 28, are doing well, and serving the Lord. How I long to be able to see our 9 precious grandchildren! Hope it really does work for early next year. Thanks for helping us pray!

Please also help us pray for our national workers too. Some of them have problems, family, ethical, and problems in the work. Thanks for praying!
