It’s all Greek to me!

I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End. Rev 22:13

Due to the busyness of life here, Dan has decided to begin learning New Testament Greek.  As the children have completed their assigned school work for the year, we are all joining in.  It’s early days yet, with the teacher (Dan) being only one lesson ahead of the class (us).  It has been a lot of fun and the children have progressed to translating a few simple verses.

I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the the saints and his incomparably great power for us who believe.Eph. 1:18

As I write, Daniel and Sharon are commencing eye surgery for a man who received a head injury while cutting down a large tree this afternoon.  Please pray for them as it means a difficult anaesthetic and an unfamiliar operation. 

Thank you for your prayers regarding cholera in the Western Province.  Rumginae has not had any cases, and the cases in the two neighbouring hospitals have been few and mild.  Please continue to pray that the health messages will be effectively communicated and responded to.  Please pray for the health staff who seek to show the love of Christ in word and deed.

Love always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. 1Cor. 13:7.

May you know the love of God and the glorious grace he has freely given us in the One he loves.

In Christ
