Special Announcements

 1. An “Update Letter“ from Sis. Kendra Neihouser, serving with Harvest Call in Magdelena: We are thankful to have Courtney Plattner here with us for the next year.  She is living in our house in one of the extra bedrooms and is my assistant.  She also helps out at one other house a few hours each week.  Praise be to God, the transition adding her to the house has gone well.  I think it works well that she lives with us, and the girls can interact with her in both her role as caregiver and house mate. 

Also, school has been in session for 1 month.  Cristal in 5th grade, Lucy 8th grade, and Alicia in her last year of online high school, Lord willing.  We appreciate continued prayers for the students and the teachers.  There are two new teachers to the school so please be extra prayerful for them as they familiarize themselves with our students and how best to interact with them and teach them, but also that their hearts are open to the Gospel being presented.   

Thanks, Kendra

Note: Please take time to look at the pictures and information about our loved ones in Magdelena, on the bulletin board in the library.
