“It’s always something!”…I wonder who was the first person to say that? Maybe it was Moses.
No matter who said it, we find it true in mission-life. This past week, several of our house fathers had to inspect and re-bag all of our rice stock. A violent thunderstorm had blown rain into the rice-mill building, wetting down some of the bags. On top of that, while checking the water damage, we found that a nest of mice were chewing holes in the bags and eating the rice! That’s when I though those words, “It’s always something!” This week we can share a couple photos of that work, plus some more pleasant photos from our families.
Here you see Mong, house father from Home of Faith, tying off a new bag that’s been checked and weighed. Altogether, we lost about 130kg (286 pounds) of our rice!
“But you shouldn’t be so concerned about perishable things like food. No, spend your energy seeking the eternal life that I, the Messiah, can give you.” (John 6:27)
L-R: Adjan Yae, Mong, and Gawley show some of the mice/rats that they caught while repacking & restacking our rice stock. They wore masks because the project stirred up lots of dust.
“So don’t worry at all about having enough food and clothing… your heavenly Father already knows perfectly well that you need them, and he will give them to you if you give him first place in your life and live as he wants you to.” (Matthew 6:32-33 )
Okay, now for some more pleasant activities…
These children from Happy Hearts Dorm, were posing under the fruit trees on the land. The summertime is when many fruits ripen and provide delicious treats.
“Always give thanks for everything to our God and Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.” (Ephesians 5:20)
The family at Happy Hearts Dorm is accustomed to spending weekend days visiting mountain villages to do teaching/preaching, relationship evangelism. He house father Lek is teaching in a village church.
“Those with spiritual understanding will have a wide ministry of teaching in those days.” (Daniel 11:33)
As we mentioned in our last newsletter, our talented volunteer, Audrey, took new portrait photos of all our children & families. Their smiles are bright as the sunrise! (L-R: Rebecca, Gowin, and Ruth)
“Fresh as the morning, as sure as the sunrise. The LORD is all I have, and so in him I put my hope.” (Lamentations 3:23)
We offer you our sincere thanks for your faithful and prayerful support. You are pillars of support and security for these children.
“We are telling you about what we ourselves have actually seen and heard, so that you may share the fellowship and the joys we have with the Father and with Jesus Christ his son.” (1 John 1:3)
