Just a quick letter. Phimpha called a little over an hour ago and told me to pray for God to fix our problem again. So I prayed and decided to check my email before heading over to breakfast and God answered us quick. A man we hardly know sent us enough to cover what we had just asked for.
The kids are home on school break till the end of the month. We are having camp this week, for mainly our kids and a few extra’s. We are having it as a boy/girl scout camp. We are taking them out to the shelter house and we are going to be teaching them how to survive on little and to fend for themselves and have lots of fun and worship to boot. The rains seem to have shut off now and the skies have cleared and it has been hot the last couple of days so it should be a good week. So that is one of the reasons we need some money, for food and travel.
The other reason is I was taking our son Ohm back to college a couple of weeks ago and I was letting him drive so he could get the experience. Well he lost control swerving around a couple of large pot holes and hit a tree. It took out the passenger door, the roof of the cab and the windshield. It has been in the shop since and is now ready to be picked up but we had no money to pay the remainder of the bill so we were waiting for that as well. We had just gotten our second car back from the mechanic before the accident so thank God we still had wheels.
God has been so good to us and comes through when we need it the most. Our faith remains strong through the good and bad and trial times, and persecution.
We have two new kids this week. One girl for supposedly just 10 days, the other boy will be here full time. Plus an extra adult looking for shelter from an abusive husband. Not sure how long she will be with us this time. Pray for all things and as Paul says all day long.
So glad also for the great place we have to live here and nature being all around. Most of what we have was a gift from a couple of Godly servants from down under. I was sitting on the porch early this morning drinking a cup of coffee and holding kids just waking up and enjoying the view and the smells of the forest. What is heaven going to be like, it feels like heaven here.
Rodney and Phimpha and the gang at camp.
