This year we have the privilege to be with Jerry’s mother, Leora White. Mom White is the last of our parents still living. Connie’s mother, Lois Sheneman, passed away nearly seven years ago, but the memories stay sweet; as well as the memories of our precious grandmothers on both sides. God has blessed our families with wonderful and godly mothers in our daughters and daughter-in-laws that keep the ‘home fires’ strong and loving… and then following them are the grand-daughters!
Connie requests special prayer for two areas...
God’s Word says to make our desires known, so here goes…. (Anyone looking for a missions trip/project?)
1.) Due to the lack of buildings at this time, it is my desire to prepare an enclosed play area for the nursery age children. This would be a safe place where the small ones could be cared for as their parents attend the church services. (Needed: Fencing/gate, overhead tarp, and play equipment. Also, a sleeping area for the infants, if possible.)
2.) A Prayer Gazebo… a gazebo built large enough for at least 10 people. The ladies intercession group now sits out under the trees to pray on the property. (Needed: Building materials, seating, lights, ceiling fan, and screening.)
**Current equipment needs in Paraguay –
Lawn maintenance equipment - mower, hand tools and such – are no longer servable -- $1,500 is needed to purchase new equipment to maintain the eleven (lots) of ministry property – currently our staff is relegated to doing most of the cleanup manually with machetes.
Computer desktop systems for office – we are in need of 3 new systems at a cost of $700 each in Paraguay – total needed $2,100.
DESIRE OF THE HEART LIST - Laptop and IPad2 for Paraguay recording and playback purposes – we would like to purchase these here in the US to take back with us in June -- $1,200 needed (these items are very expensive in Paraguay, more than double the cost than in the US.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR GENEROUS AND CONTINUED PRAYER SUPPORT FOR THE PEOPLE OF PARAGUAY!
