“And I will harden Pharaoh’s heart, and he will pursue them. But I will gain glory for myself through Pharaoh and all his army, and the Egyptians will know that I am the Lord” (Exodus 14:4).

In answer to your prayers, our account deficit continues to shrink and our remaining pledge amount we still need to raise is down to $1400 per month.

But in the U.S. until January 2010…

Thanks for praying for our “South Trip” that has taken us all the way from Philadelphia, PA to Selma, AL. Along the way we were able to visit with many old friends, supporters, relatives and churches. The driving has been tiring but we have purposely tried to stop and “smell the roses” on the way. Here are some of the things we have done in the past three weeks:
