Hello everyone
Today was so exciting. We needed to raise 22 thousand dollars so everyone would be able to continue at the school and start paying for outreach deposits. It was incredible! The money was raised, many gifts anonymous. I have to admit I doubted if God would provide and He did in a huge way.

We had a speaker today from China who has been imprisoned 7 times for preaching the gospel and starting churches. The Chinese goverment charges were treason and twice she had a death sentence. She was released and her story is so inspiring. She has also runs 5 orphanages in China and now is doing work in North Korea. AND she looks younger then her age! /beautiful woman and her eyes twinkle! She is a very strong advocate for orphans and women also.
WEll, I am on my way to my evening session: we have a group from Korea who are going to dance and sing for us.
Love ya all

Hey Guys - I've tried this a couple of times and gave up! Today I have a few more minutes to actually open an ID.

I miss you guys! I thought of you often this morning when the message was about growing by going - you two wow me! I hope God continues to guide and uses you in mighty ways. Love you!
