Thanks so much for your prayers! We are back in SA and settling in, getting adjusted to the time change and organized at home. Praise God we made it safely!
Unfortunately my laptop was stolen on our trip home, and communication may be slow for the next couple of weeks to a month while I get set up again. Fortunately, it is covered under insurance and we will be able to replace it! If you sent me an email and I haven't responded, it is probably because that email was on my laptop waiting for a moment to reply. Please re-send it to me and I'll be happy to respond.
Thank you to those of you that have been praying about our funds for a ministry car. All of the funds came in on time and we will have the car in our possession on the 27th of November! Thank you, God, for your provision!
Please pray that our integration back into our lives here goes smoothly! A lot happens in three months time, and there is always a bit of adjustment as we return home, as well as a bit of sadness at saying goodbye to family and friends in the US. Thank you for your prayers!
We are looking forward to some upcoming events! Brad will begin to travel to local churches to administer a verse quiz to those that are trying to win a scholarship to camp! The youth memorize verses all year and will be quizzed on verses from the beginning of the year until now. There are other requirements involved in earning the camp scholarship including faithfulness in church attendance and quiet times. If you'd like to be involved in sponsoring these camp scholarships, please let us know!
There is so much to tell, I will just have to send another update soon, as this one is getting long and there is much to get done! Thank you, again, for your prayers!
Mary, for the fam
