1st prayer requests for next trip

Praises to God:
1) BICC Zambia - Potential meeting with the Bishop
2) Macha Hospital - willingness to let me come and stay with head doctor
3) Zambia - stable country that should help me get around alone
4) The chance to go and see God's work... the opportunity to join Him.
5) For the funds that have come in for NRCC so far!
6) That my father, Denis, is coming...and 3 other amazing people I'm excited to get to know better.

Prayer Requests:
1) Plans still very shaky for Zambia/Zimbabwe
2) Transportation availability/costs/fuel from Zambia to Bulawayo 100% in the dark still
3) Fundraising for NRCC team
4) Rains need to continue to fall in region...short over last year's rains
5) School fees continue to rise at rate higher than people can afford...pray for wisdom for myself and church leaders as we decide how to proceed
6) Preparation for meetings between FVI and partners (meetings on leadership, farming expansion, gardening, homebased care, and staff development, etc)

Praise God with me, my friends. And lift up these requests to heaven and let the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, guide our hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. Amen.

Thanks for loving the orphans of Africa and those that are traveling to love them in Jesus' name. You are loved and appreciated.
