Hope all is going well for you. We're doing fine. Summer is definitely
here, but the rainy season hasn't started yet. It is very dry, dusty,
and windy! We got about 1/4 of an inch of rain over a week ago, but
since then nothing. The livestock in the village is really showing the
drought. Their ribs are showing!
I think Stephanie already told a lot of you that we sold our ancient
white Golf. We felt like God definitely opened up the door to sell it.
Even though it served us well for 2 1/2 years it was showing its age
badly. The suspension and body were really worn out from the dirt roads
in Lesotho. One of the nurses at the clinic wants to sell their Honda,
but at the moment it is in the body shop to repair the damage from a
rear-end accident. This is the third accident that it's been in and
they are afraid of it. I want to really check it over carefully before
I make a decision. Please pray that God will give us wisdom for this!
If we don't buy the Honda, we'll probably by another Golf that I found
for sale in Ladybrand. It is also old, but in a lot better shape than
the one we sold. It would be a cheap car to maintain, but it's not as
nice or big as the Honda.
We are still holding a tent meeting here at Matukeng. I've lost track
of time, but it must be getting close to 8 weeks that we've been having
services every night counting the tent meetings and the prayer meetings
we had before we pitched the tent. I think everyone is getting tired,
but it is exciting to see God working! Several people have really
gotten saved, and many people have been awakened or got spiritual help.
Lots of young people are walking nearly two miles from Ha Teko where we
first pitched the tent to where it is now every night. I think we're
about to close the meeting. We need to begin holding Bible studies and
discipleship classes for those that have gotten saved.
Last week Nt. Kali and some of the people from the church went several
days to pray for a man who was very sick. The man clearly got saved and
died a day or two later. It was one of those "eleventh hour" victories.
Monday we went to Ladybrand for the afternoon and then I went to a
school board meeting. Steph and Kaitlyn visited Gwen, Issac, Micah, and
Titus while Steve and I were at the meeting. The meeting went well.
Yesterday Steph and Kaitlyn planted flowers in some pots and the little
flower garden in front of our house. Right now they look a little
wilted from the heat, but in a day or two they'll perk up again (we
hope!) I spent the day working on the headlight wiring of our Isuzu.
For a few months it has had an intermittent problem that made the
headlights blink off at the most inconvenient and dangerous times. I
thought I had found the problem and fixed it once, but it started
happening again last week. I'm not good at auto electric, so I never
found the problem. I gave up looking and completely rewired the head
light circuit. It's a little jerry rigged with relays, fuse holders,
etc., but hopefully it won't leave us in the dark again!
Today I went to a TEE committee meeting. All the books are translated
now, but two of them still have to be edited, and several still need to
be formatted. Seven of nineteen are now in print! The biggest hold up
now is between finances and the publisher. I think if we really had
money available, the printer would make it a priority. It is exciting
to see the results of these books in the lives of the students from our
Bible School. Several of them are really doing well spiritual and in
Well, I need to get ready to preach at the tent. Take care!
Glenn, Steph, and Kaitlyn
