Haiti and Other Places...

Mary and I are now in Fayettville Ohio after spending last week with our children in NC. We experienced a great week of rest and time with family and time with God. Our son Justin is now attending Armstrong University where he is studying music and has hopes of graduating in December of this year. Our Daughter Lori and husband Scott live in Wake Forrest NC where he is attending Seminary and she is a teacher. It was great to be with each of them this past week. Mary continues to do great with the change in her medications.

We are continuing to hear great reports about what God is doing in Haiti. The job skills training and other things are going great there. We are thankful for the sacrifice and contribution Beaver and Kathy brooks are making in building relationships into the Kingdom of God. Attached is an update (possibilities today) from them which tells a great story of what is happening there. Please continue to pray for them as they work there. Please look at the work which they are doing in Haiti and in Georgia. You can find their information on the "Other Opportunities to Serve" tab located at the top of this page.

Brian arrived on Tuesday and will resume the construction on the houses. We are excited about the opportunities God is giving us to work with the people in the community and provision of Jobs. Please pray for Brian and also for Omaha Rapid response which is the organization which Brian has been participating with for several years. ORR has been helping widows and orphans in Pakistan, Haiti and specifically in Jubilee for several years. Last week I shared with you other opportunities to serve and there organization in Omaha is definitely a great place to plug into ministry. You can find out more about this ministry by also clicking the tab "Other Opportunities to Serve." Please pray for Brian and ORR and the work which they do for the kingdom of God.

We are also thankful for Cross International and the work which they are doing around the world. They are responsible for the financing of the homes which are being built in Jubilee. They are really working hard to get help to the poorest of the poor. Their information is also listed in "Other Opportunities to Serve." Also attached (EQ Housing) is some stories they have written about earthquake victims and ministries which are helping them. Some of these will be recipients of the houses being built in Jubilee. Please look at their work and pray that God would show you how you could help.

With Love in Christ,
