Let every thing that hath breath praise the Lord. Praise ye the Lord.
Dear Prayer Partners,
Are you praising the Lord today? I was reading the newspaper last night and read about the space journey to Mars. “Had there ever been life on Mars?” Man constantly searches for life’s beginning, when all they have to do is read God’s Word. Too easy?
I wanted to tell you thank you for praying for us. God is so good and continues to bless us every day. I have to stay focused on God’s Word and not what the world is doing. Thank you for your financial support . I know the cost of everything is going up and we thank the Lord for your sacrificial support. The houses are filled and being filled with new missionary families that need a home. It’s because of you and the blessing of the Lord that Siloam Missionary Homes continues. House number 13 is being decorated today!
Praise the Lord for answered prayer. I have asked you to pray for Darlene Evans, a mom with colon cancer, remember? Well, I talked with her and she has started her treatments and God has blessed. She has not been sick, although tired, and she is still singing in the choir. Praise the Lord! Tuesday, she had a pet scan to see if the cancer is outside the colon. The Doctor said it is all in one location and is treatable. Keep praying for Darlene and send her a card at PO Box 177, Alamance, NC 27201.
Praise the Lord for a car:
Abbey, Mike, Joyce, and I have been praying for several weeks for a car that would get better gas mileage for them. I thought about doing it my way and selling my truck. However, God had different plans. We received an e-mail from a person that had the car we were praying for! Praise God, Mike and Abbey are now driving it!
A note from our missionary families:
Matt K.wrote: “I very much appreciate all you have done and are doing for my family. I just finished some toast with some homemade pear butter on it from Dad’s Country Store. It was real good!” Matt is one of our MK’s who is away in college. His family is living at Siloam.
Carmen P. and her family just recently moved to Hungary and she wrote, “Things seem to get easier each day…today’s trip to the grocery store wasn’t nearly as scary as last week, and I actually came home with most of the items on my list. The hard part is the language…on the back of all of the products they have 4 languages. They are Slovak, Polish, Hungarian, and Czech…all too confusing to even guess what they say. Needles to say, the food hasn’t been great in our house lately. Two nights ago, I was up late with Justin and Carina unpacking, so we took a break and went to the kitchen to have a tasteless snack of something I found at the store. As we sat there, we talked about Dad’s Country Store and how if we were at Siloam, we would walk down there and get a yummy cake. Justin and Carina both said, “well, it’s okay, because we will be back there in 4 years! We sure loved our time there!”
In closing, I want to encourage you to keep praying for Darlene Evans. Allso, Mary Lou DeYoung is going to have a knee replacement in July. Keep praying for us that we can continue to encourage the families here.
Praising the Lord,
