We are back at school.. well, Keely & I are anyway. 😉

Many of you asked us about the school building and if it would be ready in time for the new school year. Well, we are back in the building and it looks great! (see photo)

Even better news...all of the restoration and rebuilding has officially passed inspection! YAY!! Praise the Lord! Thank you for your prayers for the school building and all the work that needed to be done.

Please pray for the new school year; for K and the heavier workload as she has many learning challenges, for me as I serve there in a teaching role, and for the school as a whole.

Ron has been very busy with going to local offices in order to get the required paperwork that we need to change our address and also for our up-and-coming visa appointments. It is a very taxing job! Please pray for our visa appointments.

Our time back home, this summer, was very good and also very busy. We put on about 9,000 km over 2 months, and that doesn’t include a flight to Québec. It was so great to see some of our adult children, our grandkids, family, and friends and to be able to go to share at churches. We were also able to meet some new friends which is always a blessing. Please pray for our family as they miss us and we miss them.

Being detained has its blessings…

A dear African brother has been detained for about 2 months now. In the beginning, he was alone in his detention but God sent him another believer. These 2 young men were singing praises in their cell and this led to 11 men accepting Jesus as their Saviour. Then another 5 men accepted Christ and then another 6 men! Even though we are praying for him, and the other believers to be released, we see how God is moving in the detention center. Glory to God! Please pray for these brothers to be strengthed in the Lord and for their release!

We are excited about the amazing things that are happening here! Local people are eager to hear the Good News, people are getting saved and getting baptized! It’s wonderful! 

Please pray for these believers as they struggle to step out with their new faith. Many of them are cut off from family when they accept Jesus and most times they keep their new faith a secret so that they can go to work, have a home to live in, and stay in the family.

“I can do all this through Him who gives me strength.”

Phillipians 4:13

Blessings to each of you,

Ron & Veronica
