Hello to Everyone!!!
I cannot believe it is the end of July. Where has the time gone? I am sure everyone else is asking the same question. When so much is happening, it is hard to keep up!!!
Here in El Sal, we are in the middle of the rainy season. We have had so much rain, the mountains and rivers are full!!! Fortunately, it usually only rains at night, so the days are good, but so many have lost homes and lives because of the rains. Please continue to keep this country in your prayers.
With Abigail, everything is working beautifully. The Center continues to be a source of help to many. The doctor sees patients every week and the counselor is helping people every week as well. I am still trying to figure out about the dentist and in the meantime, we also are arranging for a pediatrician to come and see children. Our weekly Bible study always has between 30 and 40 in attendance. I was able to purchase a little notebook and pencil for each one who attends. They love them and bring them each week and are taking notes!!! I love that!!! They come with their prayer requests and are anticipating things in their lives from the Lord. They are learning that prayer works!!!
We still are making plans to start another study with another group every Thursday. This will start 12 August. They too will receive notebooks and pencils. And each group receives coffee and sweet bread every week. It is a blessing for us to be able to serve them in this small way.
Our paperwork for the Association has been rewritten and resubmitted to the government. We are being told it should only take 2-3 months. The gentleman who is helping us is well respected with the new government because of his many years of service on the Supreme Court of El Salvador. The Lord always knows who to put in our paths!!!!!
Another blessing for Abigail is a connection with On A String and A Prayer. If you do not know about this ministry, please check it out at http://onastringandaprayer.blogspot.com/ This is organized by two very special young ladies who decided to do something for the Lord with their time on summer vacation. (They are connected to Twin Rivers through Marcia and Tom Adams so some of you may know them) What they are doing is making bracelets, praying over each one, then selling them for $2 or $3 dollars and the proceeds go to Abigail. Now we are very humbled to be receiving this blessing. But for me, I want the Lord to bless them in such an awesome way so that they know whenever they do something for HIM, He cannot help but bless it!! They are giving of their time, treasure, and talent for the Kingdom of God. So if you are able, please support the efforts of these wonderful girls. If nothing else, please drop them a note on their blog to let them know how proud you are of them for helping others.
Thank you to Everyone who is a part of what HE is doing here in El Sal. Whether you pray, send, go, or support, you are a very important part. We are reaching lives daily for the Kingdom and it takes a team to reach a nation!!! May God continue to bless you!
