Remember them this Memorial Day.

to lay down one’s life for one’s friends”
 John 15:13

YANDERI

Recently, the Oaxaca home received a new teenage girl, Yanderi. She is fourteen years old and has very limited literacy skills. Currently, Yanderi is studying one-on-one with Abby Martin, head of the Oasis School, and is steadily progressing with reading and math. We are eager to see her gain the skills needed to experience God by reading His Word herself.

Please pray for Yanderi to advance in her reading.

MONTHLY DINNERS

There will be no monthly dinner in July or August but we’ll be getting together again in September. Hopefully in July and August, we will be concentrating on the sequel to Charla’s Children.

Please pray for that effort. It has been a long time coming.
