When you don't hear from us PRAY

I should say right off that when you don't hear from us PRAY - either we
are very busy - too busy or are feeling very discouraged. In this last
silence it has been both!!

The HEAT IS ON! Day time temps are soaring though nights feel like spring
and a light jacket is needed. Here and there trees are starting to bud and
a few are already in full leaf! This goes a long way to break up the gray
and brown all around. Everything is perking up in anticipation of the rain
that should be coming in October - pray for that!

Stirling did arrive home safely from Namibia. He arrived at 11 PM on
Wednesday (29 August). Meghan was up early on Thursday as it was her
birthday - 8 years old! Steve & Peggy and Peter and Shelley came for the
weekend so it was very special.

I wrote during Stirling's absence about the fan belt of generator breaking.
A new fan belt came to the farm the next day after the old one broke coming
with a 3 person team from Zamibia who 'just happened' to be headed toward
the border at that time. They got the fan belt here. The generator got
going right away BUT the Zambian team's car broke down and our farm truck
had to pull them about 3 hours south to the main road so they could find
another vehicle to pull them to the border!

Today is a general holiday at the farm - a bullock has been slaughtered and
there is a big meal for the personnel. We are wanting to acknowledge the
Lord's goodness in harvest as well as let the workers know we appreciate

At the ladies meeting this week we studied Paul's prayer for the Colossians.
We ask you to pray for the Believers here that we will know the Lord's will
and that we will be strengthened with the power of the Holy Spirit. And
that we will be aware of his presence in everyday living.

Thank you for standing with us in prayer!!
Donna for all of us!
