Dear friends,

Thank you for your faithful praying. My apologies for the delay in getting the Calendar sent out. To say that life has been hectic would be an understatement. This last couple of weeks have seen me very busy with several complex pastoral situations including the health and practical issues that retired missionary Sharon has been going through following a stroke. Please could I ask you to pray for her continued improvement and the preparations for her travelling back to the States in an air ambulance, hopefully later this week. In order to deal with the all practical matters I have involved as many other people as I can as so often two heads are better than one! Although sometimes its would have been quicker to have done things myself I am confident that working in group usually leads to much better solutions. It has been great to see how the Lord has opened doors and met so many needs. Amongst the properties that Sharon owns here in Paraguay she has a house where we have been having to deal with a difficult situation involving a member of one of our local congregations. Protection, wisdom and patience are required!

Blessings, Sally
