We sense peace and stability when food in the house suffices to feed the family. Birds sense the same, too! During the pandemic, we placed a squirrel resistant feeder to meet the birds living about us. By giving our feathered friends a steady supply of food, they flit from tree to tree in plain view. Talk about a feeding frenzy! We refill the large bird feeder once a week. They will empty a 20-pound bag of birdseed this month. Still, it is worth it. Our new friends will not suffer from dependency because we leave soon. We enjoy the songs and beauty while treating them to some gourmet meals as they nest.
Prayer and Praise
- We gratefully share that Verlin suffered no complications during dental surgery on Thursday. Preparations for an implant are far from being paid and done. The surgeon did not think it best to combine two steps of the process during the surgery, as hoped. Now we wait two months for healing to permit placement. That timing is tricky with our expected return to Cote d’Ivoire in August. Pray, trusting the Lord to arrange the details and schedule for us.
- Ask the Lord to provide a foundation, or government, grant to further transform Ivorian life with Gospel Wisdom that is integral to CHE. Pray trainers will continue compassionate and innovative witness as they penetrate communities, whether or not a grant is obtained. These ramp-up material distribution for training, mask-making, and hand-washing via DBS groups.
- Pray with us for our granddaughter’s school placement next year. Our firstborn and daughter-in-law made a request that would benefit Chelsea’s progress as a hearing-impaired child. The COVID-19 upheavals make it less likely that others will honor the parents’ request. Ask the Lord to intervene in the way best for her and all of us.
