Hi y'all!

Yes, May is here already and maybe gone too soon! April sure flew by fast! God is working here and we are so thankful. Bob has had some profitable trips, some special meetings in different churches and places, we have had guests who have blessed us, and more.

The Romanian brothers who visited us were a huge blessing and challenge to the churches and brothers where they were able to minister. Our dear people here do really need to let the Lord work in their lives, we all do, really, in being a fully consecrated church, 100% dedicated to the Lord. Just getting a lot of people together isn't the goal, the goal is that we be like Christ and see the world through His eyes. We pray for God to work in all our believers this way. There is so much mediocrity and half heartedness it seems. This leads to sin and excuses for it.

Which brings us to the sad part of April. We have had to discipline another believer from here. This is always sad, but sadder as he is from a Christian home and family from birth. We sure pray the Lord will get a hold of him and bring true repentance and change.

On a brighter side, God is working in the youth here, and some more of them are wanting to serve the Lord. Our elder in the main church here, Fortunato, works with the older youth and has seen fruit. A couple of the older youth help me with the adolescents, and though few show up for that, sometimes more come and we are seeing God work in their lives.

Seems like these are difficult days for youth. So much of this technology, great in many ways but temptations and just plain badness in other ways. The breakdown of so many homes affect our students at school too. Too many from broken homes, and thrown around from relative to relative, lack of direction and purpose, and lack of God in their lives. Help us pray for the school, how we long to see the students and teachers truly know Christ, and His hope for them. As a bumper sticker said once: Know God, know hope, No God, no hope. True, seriously.

We are preparing for the Mother's Day program at school, please help me pray that this will glorify the Lord and challenge Moms to teach their children of Him, early, not only in words but in works too. In lives. We are also in testing time which is tons of work. But in that too, we pray for the Lord to be glorified.

Thanks so very much for all your prayer for us and God's work here. God is working in the home Bible studies Bob has, and in his teaching of God's Word. Thanks for sharing with us too. We are working on getting the tiny apt. ready for us to move into, hopefully yet this month of May. We do lack some to finish it, seems like everything is really expensive, the dollar is low, etc. But God has His time.

Trust you Moms will have a good day May 12, (and every day, really) and MAY the Lord really bless you all!
