First of all, if there are spelling errors here please ignore them. On Tuesday I had a run in with the muffler on my lawn mower and lost -- big time. I bumped into it and now have 3rd degree burns on my thumb -- the right one, of course. It's been a tough couple of days and thanks to the aloe plant my daughter in law got me for Christmas the pain is gone. I actually split one of the leaves and layed it under the bandage to get relief from the pain. It worked and now it's just healing time.
Monty has been more than busy with building the deck for a mobile home and tomorrow starts a job for an elderly lady who has damage from the tornadoes the last of May. He will be putting 12 anchors underneath and then skirting the whole thing. Hopefully the rains will hold off and the temps lower just a bit.
And today is a huge day for one of our missions training school students --- Mary is on a plane heading to the country of Ecuador where she will begin her year in missions. She will be teaching English at the university in the capital city of Quito -- an answer to their prayers --- 10 years in the asking! She will be living with one of the local Pastors and his wife and their son. It's a huge step for her so please keep her covered, saturated, in prayers!!! Go Mary --- you are literally going to the nations and we love you for obeying the calling on your life!!!
An added prayer request for a dear friend of Monty's mother and who has also become a dear friend of ours, Judy. A few weeks ago she had a hip replacement and did extremely well in rehab and went home last Thursday. Today she is back in the hospital with an infection and had another surgery. She was feeling good when she called me this evening and hoping the drainage tubes won't have to stay in long. She's already wanting to get home! Let's pray for supernatural healing.
Until next time . . . blessings to all. Susan and Monty
