A quick note

Hi! This is really short because we're running late.

We're still in the process of getting permits. Yesterday we couldn't go
to town because someone was working to get our permits and had our
passports. Today we're in town to get a letter signed by Uncle Piet.
One more requirement for the permits. Please pray that we will get our
temporary residence permits otherwise we can't live in Lesotho.

Philip is coming to visit us this weekend. We're looking forward to that.

Last Sunday Glenn went to a funeral. I didn't go with Kaitlyn because I
don't think little children go to funerals. The funeral turned out bad
with a gang/political group running in and taking the coffin out of the
tent. It was rather strange and not respectful at all.

This Sunday Glenn will be going to the newest preaching point. Please
pray that God will work in that village and speak to hearts.

We're all doing well physically. The weather has been beautiful--a bit
cool in the mornings and evenings--but not like when we first came
back. We are enjoying it very much!

Thank you for your prayers! We'll be in touch.

Lesotho Update

Dear Praying Friends,

We've felt your prayers as we've been settling back into life in Lesotho. 

Answer to Prayer:
  • In the last Lesotho Update, we asked you to pray for the political situation in Zimbabwe.  Though not much obvious has changed inside the country, the shiploads of weapons from China had to return.  None of the neighboring countries would allow them to dock.  Praise the Lord!
  • While we were in America, a new church was planted in Lesotho.  The Lord willing, I'll visit this new congregation on Sunday.
  • On the 31st of May, the church board will be meeting to choose new committees.  Please pray that God's will be done as we make these important decisions
  • Pray that we will be able to get our residence permits for Lesotho renewed.  I was hoping that we would already have them, but I found out today that I have to get yet another stamped, certified letter!  
  • We have a special prayer request.  It would be unwise to give any details right now, but as you bring this need to our Father, He will know what you are talking about. 
Thank you so much for your prayers.  God does hear and answer!

If you prefer not to receive this update, please send us a note.  We'll be glad to take your address of the list!

Another Week in Africa

Hi! Thought I'd write a little group email quickly. This week has been busy, but today we're relaxing a bit.

Yesterday we went to Bloem and came back for supper at the van der Merwe's and then spent the night. It's always so nice to be with them, and now we're just relaxing and visiting.
Glenn has been working on our vehicles. Monday he was grinding something and got a piece of steel in his eye. It wouldn't come out, so we went to Ladybrand Tuesday, so he could see a doctor. Kaitlyn ended up seeing the doctor too. She had a bit of a cold and then a very tight cough. Monday night and Tuesday she was wheezing pretty badly so I was glad she could see the doctor. She has bronchitis and is on antibiotic now. The doctor gave her a breathing treatment. Even last night she was wheezing, but I think she's doing some better today.

We were able to visit with Tannie Anna on Tuesday. We also saw Miss Carol and Michelle for a bit. After shopping, we ended up going to KFC to visit Philip and Jeremy so that was nice too.

We got almost 50 mm of rain last Saturday and Sunday. It was nice to have the rain, but it's hard to get used to a cold house again. Yesterday and today have been very nice though so I can't complain.

keep me busy too! She likes telling Thabiso what to do and not to do so that's a challenge for me. One of her 2 year molars came through about 2 weeks ago. Another one is about to come through and the others are on their way.Kaitlyn is having fun playing with Thabiso almost every day. They keep very busy and We'll be glad when that's over since she gets sick and keeps us up at night!

I can't think of a lot of news today. I guess we're still in the unpack, get back-to-normal mode right now. Glenn will go to a 7am meeting tomorrow. There is a funeral in Matukeng this Sunday. The family have asked our church to hold the funeral. Ntate Pheko will come also to help preach.

I trust you will all have a nice weekend! Thank you for praying for us. We really appreciate the prayers.
