Home sweet home. Well we made it here at home without our luggage and no electricity for the first night. Praise God for an old trusty generator that was pretty handy, providing much needed light and a fan. Our house was occupied by the local rat-gang and they made nests in every cupboard possible. So now we are cleaning house, literally cleaning but it’s good as we can start going through some things to give away. I know of some poor people in the jungle that is going to be very happy soon. It makes perfect sense to share to people in need as we are so blessed by having way to much stuff.
Timing was great as 2 of friends came back the same day we did. Jared and Emily from NZ are back and ready to work again. Praise God that Jared is doing well. Read more about their time back home and what is next. Looking forward going to Stung Treng with them around.
Ben and Hannah also came back the same day from Canada. Everyone looks fresh and ready to tackle new adventures with God, coming their way. Praise God for friends. We are definitely looking forward to hang out with these guys.
Here is some fresh news from our friends in Tanzania, Jacob and Carmen. Pray for them as a family where they also seeking God daily in preparation for their work. http://www.geymansteps.blogspot.com/
Please pray for another couple from NZ, Rob, Harna and little Emma that will make their way here on the 29th Saturday for spying out the land. They had been here before but that was before little Emma. They will stay with us for a week before they will go up to Stung Treng. Pray for travel mercies.
Continue to pray for Fe and her family. In her own words:

Thank you very much for praying for us. We just got confirmation from all the people that pray for us and that was just in Namibia. We are blessed. It’s not everyone that are so fortunate to have so many people praying for you.
Love you all
