Aug News & Notes
Hilary has completed her first week at boarding school, and is doing great! We are really proud of her. Apparantly, class scheduling was a bit rough, but finallyall of that got worked out. She is a freshman, but was able to place into french 4, a senior level class, because of the time spent in Quebec.(and because of her good work there in school!)
The boys are doing well. They've made a lot of friends, and their homeschool will be starting soon. We've been busy with getting the house ready, and it is mostly there.(It is not so easy without Menards, Lowes, and Home Depot!)
Here is Caleb with a few friends again...
Ibrahima, who has been a student in our study room, and a good friend, will leave soon.He goes south to Bouake to see his family, then he will go to Bamako for University.He's a bright young man, and is searching spiritually. He has accepted a Bible, andhas made a lot of progress throughout this year as we've had many converstations.He also had good talks with Lisa, Danielle, and Joannie throughout the year.We pray and covet for his salvation.
Speaking of salvation. A young man who has been here this summer for his summer vacation,made contact with Pastor Youssouf, and yesterday accepted Christ! He, too has passed his high school, and will be going up to Bamako for university. He came to church today, and was presented as a new believer. We pray for his continued spiritual growth.His name is Sedou Coulibaly. I didn't get a picture as I didn't want to be pushy.
Another bit of news, I got my Mali drivers license! It took a lot of visiting offices, and being turned away, and having to come back again,but finally I was able to get it taken care of!Thanks for praying, it is a big weight off our shoulders to have it finished!
As for the near future, we're looking forward to Ernie and Jan Eadleman coming back soon!It will be a joy to work with them again.Also, school will start up end of September, and the study room will be back in "fishing"mode... :-)
Thank you for praying for us, and for your interest in the ministry here...
