Prayer Update

Wow - how time flies! It has been 12 days since we arrived in the US, and we have been really enjoying ourselves, visiting family & friends and sharing about the ministry of Word of Life South Africa.  We have done a lot of traveling and have a whole lot more to do before we head back to SA!

Upcoming events -
Tomorrow we head to Western MI to visit friends - Eric & Kim vonOeyen, Dave & Amy Majeski, and Jeff & Becky Montie. We are looking forward to sharing what God's doing in SA and catching up on what's happening with them!  We will return to Davison on Saturday.

Monday, 9/1, we are hoping to head North to East Tawas to visit family.

Next Wednesday, 9/3, we have a meeting with the missions committee at Life Fellowship Chapel.

On Thursday, 9/4, we travel to meet Mike & Fran VanBruggen, a family raising support to join our ministry in South Africa.

Saturday, 9/6, we are having an open house in Lapeer, MI at Life Fellowship Chapel (the Old Ponderosa).  It will be from 1-4 if you want to join us!  Once again we will be catching up with family and friends and sharing about the work of Word of Life in South Africa.

Sunday, 9/7, we will be sharing about the ministry of Word of Life South Africa at Life Fellowship Chapel.

Monday, 9/8, we head back to PA!  Please pray for us as we say goodbye to Mary's family for a couple of years.  We will leave with mixed emotions of saying goodbye and looking forward to spending a few weeks with Brad's family.

Mary, for the fam

Re: Mya Coming to America

Join us in praising God for His faithfulness!
Mya's visa was approved today!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Now we just have to wait for her passport with the visa in it to arrive via courier, and we'll be on our way.  It should be here by Monday at the latest and we fly out on Wednesday the 13th.
Thank you for your prayers!

Today we are to collect our home study report and deliver it to the children's court.  This is the last item needed for her adoption to be finalized here in South Africa. Once we deliver it to the children's court, it has to go through Pretoria, and they will send us the details in the mail once it is approved.
