Go.... Teach

Had a rather large group gathered for services Sunday. Around 140 people showed up. It helped that the 3 children with birthdays this month chose to wait for momi Lisa to return and have a combined Birthday after service. Lisa made cupcakes and chinese for everyone, the kids had a piƱata and bounced in the bounce house afterwards. Pastor Augusto has been helping on Sunday services, our children have been helping with music. Many folks have already become regulars for every service. It's surprising how the LORD works and it is rarely in the way we think it should be. A lot more teaching is needed before calling it a "church" but it seems to be going in the right direction. Thursday I taught a lesson on church doctrine basics. Time will tell as the Holy Spirit grows and weeds his garden.

Thanks to ministering saints, Lisa has a return flight to Miami in a week for more medical testing to find out what we should do next. Everything is up in the air at the moment till we know more. The ticket is open ended so she might be there a few weeks or months I don't now yet... So many variables are not in our hands. Final diagnosis, plan of care, kind of surgery here or there, how to pay for it all ect. I do know the financial, spiritual and work load increases much when the family is split in 2 locations. Considering we just squeak by, I don't know how it will all work out, just that is needs to.

Phones have been down for most of this week so for now this or email is our only communication. I did receive word Brother Paul Deem of Directline Ministries wants to put together a container shipment for us for food for the Childrens Lighthouse again. This is always a huge blessing and relief for us. If you want to help and donate food or other items please contact us or them at www.directlineministry.com Keep us in prayer.
