Worked like a slave today, after a big storm swept through and fell a couple of trees and left all the mangoes on the ground. Swept leaves and try to clean up but managed only half of my yard. After sweating about 30 litres, I went for my pool, which got full last night with all the rain, with a cup of coffee and 5 mangoes. Man, luckily I do not know too many missionaries that suffer so much like me…….Tomorrow is another day.
Some good friends and fellow missionaries came with me to Thor Piang Rosey and from there into the bush for a sleep-over in Rum Jopon. It was good seeing some of the patients, I had 2 weeks ago. The guy with a very bad infected toe came and its almost healed, the uncle with a broken leg, which was infected came and it look so much better. So good to see people regularly in order to see that they are healthy. Please pray with me for Heang and his family as they are helping me to build the little building. We are struggling to get going but I hope to start building before we leave next month.
From there we went into the jungle for a good ride on the bikes. It was good to have John with us as he took some time off from school. Love having my good friend and partner with me. Once again the hospitality of the people was an inspiration to me. We helped them with medicines and they opened their houses for us. We even got a house to sleep in. We really could have a good fellowship with them as we had plenty of time.
We visit the family staying in Som Po-om. He said he heard our bikes last night and was waiting for us. He said that we need to sleep at his place next time. He even gave more breakfast and fruits. What was the highlight of the trip was when he asked to play a song on the guitar. Josh took up the challenge and played a worship song while uncle was enjoying it. We had a great time fellowshipping with him. Next time we will stop there and spend more time.
Continue to pray for Quinton Calitz. His operation is scheduled for the 20th June.
Manus Olivier is still busy with his treatment in the Cape.
Please pray for a good friend in Chang Mai-Thailand. Joe Allen Dee’s dad, uncle Wright is in hospital after an accident. This uncle touched thousands of lives with his kindness and love for God. I only remember him as a sweet grandpa that loves the Lord with a passion.
He has got brain surgery too late, so the membranes already built up too thick. Neurologist does not want to make brain surgery the second time, because he is too old. (84 years old). He sleeps the whole day and night, very difficult to swallow liquid and food, eat less and less and less response. We have to wake him up to eat.

A friend opened a GoFundMe campaign for Fe.
Maria Fe Barrientos Dequito (Fe, as she is known to friends and family) was part of the Leadership Team for many years in the international church where we attend and serve in Siem Reap, Cambodia. Last year Fe was diagnosed with cancer. She and her family, following 18 years of service in Cambodia, have now returned home to the Philippines where Fe is currently undergoing treatment for her cancer.
I have set up a GoFundMe campaign for Fe in order to offset the expense of her cancer treatment. I invite you to donate toward Fe's need. Thank you in advance for anything you can give.
Fe needs our help with funding for ongoing cancer treatments which she is receiving in the Philippines. She is receiving both chemotherapy and radiation treatments for her cancer. She does NOT have insurance in the traditional sense and is depending on the generosity of friends and family around the world to cover the cost of her treatments.
Each chemotherapy treatment costs $1,800 USD. Fe has 9 chemo treatments remaining to complete her treatment plan. The radiation treatments cost $60 USD each and Fe has 12 more treatments remaining. Related expenses are also incurred as it is necessary for Fe and Noel to travel by air from their home in the Philippines to the nation's capital, Manila, where she receives her treatments.
In order to reduce stress caused to Fe and her family by the uncertainty of available funds for remaining treatments, this GoFundMe campaign is being established. At present a total of $20,000USD is still needed in order to fully cover Fe's remaining chemotherapy and radiation treatments. Ongoing, there will be a close follow-up and therapy regimen established once the chemotherapy and radiation treatments have been completed.
Underscored must be the reality that unless sufficient funds come in to cover Fe's remaining treatments, she will not be able to proceed with the treatments. It's on a "payment in-full for services rendered" basis.
Thank you and God bless you for any contribution(s) you can make.
