I have attempted several times to update this blog and every time, some internet monkey stops my progress. Hoping today will be different and hoping that you have been praying for the ministry in spite of our lack of updates.
Last Wednesday after lunch, the two older students decided to try volleyball while the two little boys were trying baseball. Carlos, our groundskeeper was trimming and three dogs played nicely together. Will wonders never cease!
Our days are HOT and we are so thankful for the tropical storms passing by out of our range. A small breeze would be welcome but let me tell you, I am happy to not have had the BIG storm here.
We are praying for the people in the Bahamas who are now experiencing WORSE conditions than we had in 2017. We cannot imagine having a storm sitting on us for 36 hours… incessantly pounding. WOW. The pictures we are seeing make all of us thankful here for the mountains that block winds and the cement structures which are most common. If you are interested in giving to someone who is already working for Kingdom Purposes in the Bahamas, I can recommend PRAYING PELICANS MINISTRY OR CHAMPS MISSIONS . Both of these ministries have connections already established with churches and people in the Bahamas. I know the Praying Pelican ministry and a friend recommends the Champs Mission group. You can look into those or other places if you have a heart to help that island nation.
Check out Mike and Glenda Coupe’s most recent newsletter to see what they are up to. Right now, (Wednesday at 4:30) , Glenda is working with Natalia – 3 year old deaf girl – on ASL/language development while Mike is in the States.
Pray for our new student JJ – he is 8 years old and works hard to keep us working harder! Pray for wisdom as we will have him only for a few weeks – his dad is military and deployed somewhere so he and his mom are visiting family here until dad is home to be helpful with that hard work I mentioned in the last sentence!
thanks for your many prayers
