We hope everyone had a great Easter. Things are busy as usual here and soon we will be winding down for the year. So many great things have happened, but we must admit that we are ready for some much-needed rest and family time. Sam, our grandson, just celebrated his 4th birthday on Saturday. These are the times which are the most difficult for us and we miss being there to celebrate with our loved ones. Also, we’re happy to announce another one is on the way! Lorelei Edelen is expected to arrive around 2 June. Maybe she’ll hold off until 6 June so that she can share a birthday with me. 🙂
If you would like for us to come visit this summer, now is the time to be setting the date. We’d love to see all of you, but our summer is only so long and we have to plan around family as well. It would be a privilege to come say a big thank you for your most vital support.
Thank you Orphans Promise!
We are so thankful to Orphans Promise for helping us obtain a generator for our main compound in Petite-Anse. Thanks to their generosity, we are now working quickly to hook the generator up to the water treatment system that was donated by Mercy Chefs, Inc.
Once we are able to hook up the electricity from the generator to the treatment system, we can start pumping pure water into our compound. 1) This will provide clean water for our staff and students. 2) It will also enable us to provide clean water at a minimum price to the surrounding neighborhood of Petite-Anse. This area alone has a population of several thousand.
*Selling our own water will enable us to create a source of revenue for the main compound, thereby opening the avenue to provide salaries to workers who, beforehand, were dependent on outside support.
NOTE: If we can get this up and running quickly, the summer months will be the time frame in which the most water is sold. Please pray that everything will go smoothly and be up and running before we leave on 29 May. Also, if you would like to help with this project, you can send a check or make a donation online for Haiti/Water Project. The information is below. Thanks!
A great man of God and also a dear friend passed through the immortal veil and into the arms of Jesus this week. Rev. Dick Iverson was the main speaker for our last Bible School graduation. We are so grateful that he and his wife, Roxy, were able to join us before he left this earth. Pastor Iverson was the founder of Bible Temple (today called City Bible Church in Portland, Oregon), as well as Portland Bible College. ”Bro. Dick” also founded Ministers Fellowship International of which we are members. He became a spiritual father to many pastors all over the world and was active in visiting and encouraging their ministries almost up to the time of his departure.
Our sincere prayers are with his wife, Roxy, and the whole Iverson family at this time. May the Lord comfort you in the way only He can.
