Here we are at the end of September and here in our part of the world it feels like the middle of July! Boy is Sherri glad we got the air conditioner fixed in her car! She almost put it off because the weather was cooling off and fall was coming.
Another thing we are very glad about is that Rolf did not go back to China as planned. Actually it is a huge PRAISE!! He had to have surgery a couple of weeks ago for a ruptured hernia. Unfortunately the news doesn’t get any better. Unrelated he also has a blockage at the base of his bladder which hopefully surgery will be able to correct. This involves a catheter until surgery, and a string of doctor appointments. Meanwhile he has developed a bladder infection which has put everything on hold until that clears up. Needless to say he is very uncomfortable and not very happy. Please we need your PRAYERS for good results and healing.
“I pray that you may be active in sharing your faith, so that you will have a full understanding of every good thing we have in Christ.” Philemon 1:6.
We have some good news to pass along from China. “Faith or Fiction” classes are continuing on! Anna’s class of 14 from this summer is finished and all 14 are now brothers and sisters in Christ!! She is a teacher and has recruited 6 of her students from this new school year to join a new “Faith or Fiction” class. Jennifer is starting a class with 8 from her work place and neighborhood. Martha has a class of 9 from the church. Lisa is taking a sabbatical as she is starting a new business but she “cannot help speaking about what we have seen and heard.” (Acts 4:20) and is doing a Bible study with 3 people from her new business! “So the word of God spreads. The number of disciples in Jerusalem increased rapidly,” (In this case Dalian China!) Act 6:7. PRAISE God with us!
And more good news and an answer to prayer, we have been put in contact with someone who works for the type of housing that we are planning on moving to. She has been able to answer some of our questions and has told us to call her as soon as we get the application and she will help us complete it. Her words were, “we will get you in!” Not that she has pull but that she knows what is needed and how to get it filled in correctly. We are so relieved and grateful! Of course this is not a guarantee so keep praying please!
