1 Peter 5:7 "Casting all your care..."
Dear praying friends,
Today brought sad news: Esther, my sister-in-law, recieved news that her dad passed away. He had been suffering with a brain tomor for some time now. It is a comfort to know that he knew and loved the Lord. Arrangements have been made for Derry and Esther to return to Canada tomorrow. They will be sorely missed, especially as Derry was key in the construction part of the mission. We are thankful that most of the formwork is done and ready for the cement pour on Friday. Esther was able to paint the bathroom a nice cheery color.
Tonight the team joined the believers at Burrel Boom. Derry shared a message on the promises of God and Sean spoke on 1 Peter 5:7, "Casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you."
We have so many good photos to share with you. Here you can see some of our new friends, including Justin & Dion, Derry's eager helpers who learned a few tricks of the trade. They want to join others on Sunday for the opening.
You can see we've had our challenges on the road as well. So, our thoughts and prayers go with Esther and her family. May the Lord, the God of all comfort, give them strength and grace.
Thank you for your prayers and support.
For the rest of the team,
