Happy Dependence Day!
Although we usually refer to this holiday as Independence Day, this year it struck me just how much dependence our forefathers had on God. Our nation may have never come into existence separate from their belief and trust in God and His divine guidance. It certainly would have been founded on very different principles, and would have looked much different. Likewise, today, we as a nation have a great need for dependence on God, so this 4th of July we choose to focus on our need for dependence on God more than our independence from man. Happy 4th of July!
Praise Reports & Prayer Requests:
- Kirk has successfully finished his intensive Spanish courses, and is pleased with the progress he's made and his newfound ability to independently communicate. Of course, more work is required, but he has a good foundation.
- The kids are successfully enrolled in the local preschool which was our first choice. They both will start in September, and are looking forward to it.
- Our residence status has been extended for at least one year. On July 25th we will go and turn in all the necessary documents to receive our new residence cards. We are hoping that they may go ahead and grant us a two year residence status on this first renewal.
Please continue to pray for our language acquisition, as well as the process of preparing the kids for preschool this fall. We feel that it is definitely time for them both to have more interaction with kids their age, and it will free up time for Karla to both study language and begin to get more involved in ministry.
We would like to pray for you as well!
Please send us your special prayer needs!
