Dear Praying Friends,
Let me begin with a special prayer request. Please
pray for Mary, the daughter of our friends the Kimothos. She

Again we had a fairly busy week and my
classes went well on Tuesday and Thursday. On Tuesday the
government declared Wednesday to be a national holiday so the boys
did not have their normal college class. It turned out to be a

children (and adults) really enjoyed meeting little
Jonathan and Leonna - and I m loving them too!
