For those of you in the US, Happy Thanksgiving. We have so MUCH to be thankful for.
This past month has flown by and the things we were looking forward to in the future are now past. When Justin and Nicole asked us to help with their children while they attended their last pre-field training, it seemed so far into the future. Now, those 11 days are past. We really enjoyed helping out and are THANKFUL to the Lord that we could be here for this time.
Our daughter and son-in-law have now asked that we stay and help with the kids as they pack and sort in preparation for leaving to work overseas. We are of course more than happy to do so. Lance continues to work on translating Deuteronomy and is close to finishing it. We are THANKFUL for an office at their church where he can work undisturbed.
Thanks to all who are praying for the tuberculosis situation in the village. Ron and Michelle are busy getting things organized with that. Sansuwa is doing much better on his medication. We received a letter from him recently. He shares, “I thank you for praying for me while I was sick. I thought I was going to die and though I would have liked to have gone to heaven, the Lord has a purpose for me here.
We were really surprised when God allowed us to have our daughter Dina back while I was in the hospital. Thank you so much for praying for us and her!”
Yandang, pictured here with Ron, remains in a TB quarantine house in the city. He wrote a letter letter recently that was such an encouragement. He is thankful to all who have been praying for him. You can read his letter by clicking here.
Over the past several weeks we’ve been THANKFUL to be able to report to several of our supporting churches in the Western New York & Pennsylvania area. We have one more meeting set up with a supporting church this coming weekend and then a meeting out in New Jersey the first weekend in December.
Finally, Thank You to each of you who pray for us and give financially. We are so grateful for everyone who partners with us financially and in prayer for the ministry to the Higaunon.
Secure in Christ’s love,
Lance & Laura
