The Week In Review

It's not often that I (Glenn) have free Saturdays. Usually there's either a meeting or a funeral to attend. Last week was an exception, though. So we all worked in the garden. Steph's mom left money to buy flowers for a flower bed along the sunny side of the house. We put in marigolds, petunias, moss rose, alysum, snap dragons and a couple others. A lot of them will either reseed themselves or survive the mild winters here. It looks nice. Thanks, Mom!

My major focus right now is the tabernacle at Ha Matala. Between money that came in through Hope International Missions and money raised by the church in Lesotho, we have enough to build most of one side. I think as people see progress they will be encouraged to give more. We poured the foundation on Friday and hope to start laying the blocks Wednesday next week.

Kaitlyn will turn four next week. Her big interest is still reading and writing. The other day I coasted through a stop sign on a back road in Ladybrand. She read the sign and made sure I was aware of my mistake! It seems like she's grown up so much in the last 4 months. Sometimes she acts so mature, like an 8-year-old, then a few minutes later she has dissolved into tears like a two-year-old.

Kristell is almost 15 weeks old now. She picked up a cold a little over a week ago. It seemed to just hang on and we were afraid it was going to settle into her lungs, and she would get worse. The doctor prescribed antibiotics, and she's mostly over it now. She's getting more alert and putting on a lot of weight. She started out almost off the bottom of the growth charts, but now she's around the 30th percentile. Thanks for all your prayers!
