A lot has been going on since we last updated our blog. Tim finished his teaching at YWAM's discipleship training seminar on missions. We celebrated Tim's birthday and Traeger's sixth birthday. We made an emergency trip to Malawi for Michele to get IV antibiotics for a cellulitis infection on her nose and face. We've made another trip to Malawi to pick up Michele's good friend Kendra, who is visiting with us for a month. We spent a week in Muapula for our annual SIM spiritual life conference. We have dug a matekanya egg the size of a pea out of Kallen's little toe and we survived another 3 weeks without internet because the fishing boats again cut the line. It has been a very busy July and we can't believe it is already August.
Please be praying for the marriage seminar we will be teaching starting this saturday in Mapudje. The teaching will continue the first three saturdays in August. Just pray that we could make our teaching relevant and that God would use us to somehow touch them where they are at in their marriages.
Here are a few pictures from the past month. Unfortunately, I don't have a picture of the Matekanya egg we pulled out of Kallen's toe. It was much worse than squeezing the fly larva out of her head some months back. All I kept thinking was, "am I a horrible mother or what?" The poor kid!
