Home Again! Stirling and I had a great weekend.

Home Again! Stirling and I had a great weekend. Jeffrey and Meghan both
enjoyed there adventures. We are glad to be home again and reunited as a
family. Thanks for your prayers on our behalf!

We arrived home on Thursday. Meghan came yesterday (Friday) with Peter and
Shelley and we've enjoyed a relaxing day today which included watering the
grass and garden (it hasn't really rained YET!), making bread, cheese and
cinnamon buns, marinating meat for supper, alternator repairs, treating cow
with prolapsed vagina and retained placenta, changing battery in generator,
working with Strider (horse) and getting ready picnic fixings for tomorrow.
Stirling and the rest have gone to check out smoke we can see on the north
side of the farm.

Picnic fixings are for us to take when we go to the Tchimbolelo preaching
point tomorrow. It's two hours from here. Please pray that people in the
area will remember that it is the last Sunday of the month and come! Please
pray for open and receptive hearts. Ask the Lord for discernment about
whether we need to change location or timing, etc. as each time there seems
to be less people and last Sunday there were no Ovangambwe present - only
workers from the farm of another people group who have had the gospel for 3
generations. Pray that these folk would catch a vision for evangelism!

On our one day in Windhoek Stirling was able to follow up on contacts about
buying fencing that he made during other trips. We have found a credible
company and they have given us a reasonable quote to fence Tchincombe.
During the executive meetings the UIEA leadership approved the idea of
looking into a bank loan so pray for Stirling as he talks more with the
leadership of the UIEA and as he talks with the manager of the bank. We are
hoping there will be low interest agricultural loans available.

As the land is thirsting for water PRAY for rain!
PRAY that people will thirst for the living water and PRAY for the Believers
at Tchincombe that we will point people to the LIVING WATER.

Your partnership is indispensable!!!!
Donna for all of us!
