A great week has started!

Everyone is healthy, not an easy thing to have happen in a house with so many people living together! School is well underway, and we are all starting to get back into a routine that makes life a bit easier.

We’ve been able to start all of our Bible studies, and are once again enjoying the time to spend learning God’s Word together, and growing in our walk with Him. Please pray for me as I put together these lessons, that I’d have the wisdom and time to put into it to make them beneficial to all who participate. We even had a nurse from the hospital ask if she could start participating as well. So we just ask you to pray that God’s Word would change the lives of many people through the ministry of the HOH.

We praise God that the HOH received the full amount of what our budgeted needs are during this past month. Thank you for your prayers on our behalf for God’s financial provision of our needs, and please continue to pray for that in the coming month.

John Kerry is starting to get better, he eats well, but doesn’t seem to like to drink anything, we have to fight with him to get him to drink milk, but already the food is making a physical difference for him. He responds a bit more to being touched, but still doesn’t speak, and we are not sure just how much brain damage has already been done from the extreme malnutrition over such a long period of time.

Sabrina is really beginning to do well, smiling and being generally happy while starting to put on some weight. Please continue to pray for her recovery from a very serious case of TB.

Yesterday two young girls Rosemise and Evelyne both around 12 years of age accepted the Lord as their Savior during the classes that Linda has with the children each morning. We praise God for these two new sisters in the faith. They both have TB and will be with us several more months. Please pray for their spiritual growth during the time that they are with us.

John Wisly is really struggling in school, we’d ask you to pray for him. He is repeating his grade for the 3rd time, and still just can’t seem to get the concepts. Unfortunately there is nothing like special education classes in the school system here where he can get more help. We are trying to help him at home as much as we can, but could really use your prayers for him as well.

Carl-Evens is busy preparing for his entrance exams into Med school in Port-au-Prince. He will write the exam on the 29th. Please pray for him, there will be several thousand people writing the exam and only the top 100 will be taken. He has studied hard all summer, and feels pretty confident. Please pray that he would have clarity as he writes the exam, and that God’s will would be done as far as him getting into Med school this fall. He will also be writing the exam to get into the Dental School program just in case he doesn’t make it into Med School, he can start in Dental School and won’t miss out the whole year. He is willing to study either of these two things, and desires God’s will be done in his life. These past few months in Port-au-Prince have been very good for Carl, he has grown a lot, and we were very pleased to see his progress when we were there last week. Please keep holding him up in prayer.

We trust you all have a great week, and want you to know we appreciate you all very much.
God bless,

Jenny for the HOH
