This week we have one less person reading this blog. A dear lady called Vera was a very faithful supporter of FML and always kept up to date with the work by visiting this website and reading this blog. Vera passed away during the week and William and I attended her funeral on Friday. She visited our stall on just a couple of occasions as she did not live local to it. She always showed a great interest in the work we are involved in. Yet another prayer partner is gone....but I wonder who replaces these dear people? Please remember Vera's husband, son, sister, brother and family circle in the coming days.
I spoke to Joyce this week and she is in better spirits but still appreciating your prayers in these days. The work is going on well in Uganda and we were encouraged by all she had to share. She is very excited about our forthcoming wedding and visit to Kenya. We are looking forward to seeing all of our dear friends again.
Moses continues with the ministry in Nakuru and has written this week to say: "For the last month we have been working with teachers Linias, Eukabeth, Philis, Mwangi, Major, Favour and Martha. Lesson time in schools, some 8 to 9am,12.30 to1.30pm,3.10to4.10pm,4..to 5pm,daily we can have 3 or 2 or 4. The smallest number of children is 80, biggest number 1200 with a minimum of 26 schools each week."
Due to unforeseen circumstances we have had to move offices in Nairobi and this move was taking place during this past week. We have relocated "across the wall" as it were and the main gated entrance to the office is still the same as before. Please remember the team as they adapt and unpack yet again.
This week saw the end of term and indeed the end of William's first year at his Bible College evening class. He has been blessed as he has studied and his classes will resume again in September.
I had a really encouraging meeting on Thursday evening as I shared with the ladies in another Church which we have never been to before. We thank God for these open doors.
Please continue to remember the whole FML team in prayer. We trust that God will continue to lead and guide in the coming days.
