This and That

We are really enjoying our time here in Arizona.  I can't believe we've been here for nearly two months.  Last week we spent a few days helping a church in Yuma, Arizona.  Yuma is minutes from the Mexico border, and it's very hot there!  It averaged 111 everyday.  They are having VBS this week, so my husband was helping get their bus' ready to pick up the kids.

Autumn has been a bit homesick.  She misses her friends and family back in Pennsylvania.  I set up an email account for her to be able to email friends and family.  This is good preparation for her for Australia.  Cody seems to be adjusting well and just has fun playing in all the dirt.

As for Australia, please be in prayer for our FBI clearances.  That is the final paperwork that immigration needs.  We've been waiting almost 4 weeks.  They said it could take 6-8 weeks, but we're praying it comes sooner.
This week we are helping with a Vacation Bible School in Nazlini.  This is a town of approximately 400 people.  There is only one church in the town, but I don't think it preaches the Gospel.  We had visited most of the town weeks before inviting the children out for VBS, but we had no idea how many to expect.  The first day we had 45, the second day we had 67, and today we had 77.  It would be great if we had 100 tomorrow!  So far there have been almost 20 souls saved!
