As you can see, we have already reported to 3 of our supporting churches and our schedule for 2012 is pretty filled up. Pray as we travel and for the funds needed for travel; our travel expenses in September were $900 with $500 offerings. Pray for us to use godly wisdom in instantaneous counseling situations as we continue our furlough reporting ministry.
Mongolian Family—Praise that Khulan is finding good friends and is attending a Bible study every Thursday at UMass where she is a Freshman. Her mother's fears are relieved, thankfully.
Twin Brook Camillus Farm—While most vegetable growing failed for us in this drought, Swiss Chard and potatoes abounded, as well as Red Soy Beans that were planted later. Most of the potatoes are harvested and waiting to be sold or stored, and that biggest pumpkin is still on the vine for Halloween. Two Red Angus steers do just fine on their own in the pasture, and they check in on us every time we return home. We purchased some hay, and Craig sowed winter rye in two large fields by walking many acres using a hand-held broadcast-sower. Brown fields are now turning green as the tree leaves are turning gold, red and brown. Craig continues chain-sawing trees for logs or for firewood, especially those standing in the path of his newly proposed fence in the back area of the farm.
Thank you for your continued partnership in missions!
