Our time here in Namibia is running out and we are looking forward to go home or may I say, at least me. Saying goodbye is the worse part of having a furlough. We know that we just need to be on the airplane again, and then we will be ok. Currently we are visiting with both Oumas here at the coast. Today is Ouma Paula’s birthday and we will go and feast in a fancy hotel and eat till our heart’ contend. O my holiday is no good for your body as we normally picks up a few kilograms. Ag well it’s worth every pound of it. The weather is just perfect for fishing and dune riding, even if its winter. We are so thankful that God is giving us the opportunity to relax and charge our batteries in order to go back and do our work with passion again.
Please pray for Thijs vd Merwe, our pastor as he will undergo a shoulder replacement, this week. It is a big operation and it will take a long time for recovery as well. Pray that the surgeon will do an excellent job on restoring his shoulder.
Continue to pray for our friend Fe in Manila. Here is her update:
July 6, 2017. GOD is my strength !
After 8 days of loosing a significant part of my body, God by His grace has enabled me to stand the discomfort of not having it and also recovering from the operation.
Yesterday, we went to SM shopping with Doc Dada and her family. Alas! "Lady Grace" has got what I need!( sorry... can't show you😀😀😇) Even that? Amazed me how "grace" is there? Thank God!
Then, this morning for the first time I went out for a walk with Noel. So refreshing and empowering to experience that God is my Strength!
Please keep praying with me and declaring that God will give us best result from all the waited tests.
Thank you my praying friends.
Our friends in Tanzania, Jacob and Carmen are doing well. Check out there blog for more news: http://geymansteps.blogspot.com/
Finally we know what is wrong with Toinette’s swollen up nodes on her neck. Went to our ENT friend and he said that it’s the saliva glands that are blocked up and she need to drink a lot of lemon and sour things in order for it to open again. Life can not be sour enough, I think.
Thank you for praying for us as we wind down our last week and a half here in the land of milk and honey.
