Thank you to everyone who held us up in prayer over the past weekend. There have been several big aftershocks that have really been scary for our kids and staff. But they woke up in much better spirits this morning. We are grateful for the encouragement and prayer support we have found.
I want to welcome some of the new subscribers to these updates. After posting our new website address last week, numerous people subscribed to receive these updates by e-mail. So, welcome! You will now receive these blog updates by e-mail, automatically whenever the blog is updated. Someone asked if I will still be sending out the e-mails now that we have the website and the answer is yes. At some point I might move the blog over to the website so we have it all at the same place, but not just yet. So, these updates will still come to you via e-mail.
It might be a bit before I (Jenny) can update the blog again however, as I'll be traveling soon for the HOH. I'll be speaking in churches in various places in Texas over the next few weeks and visiting supporters around there as well. If I haven't already contacted you and you'd like a visit -- please be in touch.
If you want to receive updates while I'm traveling, sign up for our closed HOH Facebook page, I will be updating that regularly (HOH facebook page). You can receive those by e-mail too if you'd like, just let me know.
We appreciate each one of you and the part you play in this ministry. Here are some general things to pray for over the next few weeks.
- Jenny's travels -- safety, strength and productive meetings with supporters and potential supporters.
- Linda, the kids and our staff as they work through this this tough time they've been through with this earthquake. Pray for God's joy and peace to fill their hearts as they deal with their fears and trauma.
- Pray for God's provision of funds during this time to help with added expenses. Prices for everyday items always go up after such events, plus we will have more mouths to feed as we help our neighbors who are suffering loss. It is probable that we even get a few extra children admitted to the HOH who are dealing with injuries.
- Pray that the light of the Good News of Jesus would shine through the HOH into our community that is really suffering right now.
