We continue to make the rounds to the various churches that have been supporting us to give a brief talk sharing about what God has done. It's been good to catch up with everyone and we're thankful for the continued outpouring of blessings we have been getting from everyone around us.
Tomorrow, Monday, we'll be up early and heading to Arizona to visit our dear friends there for several days.
As we prepare in earnest for our trip home, there are still several prayer requests and needs that we have.
- Our only vehicle in Swaziland is still in the repair shop (and has been the entire time that we have been here) needing parts from Japan. We are praying that it will be ready in time for our arrival. Otherwise, we'll probably have to rent a vehicle until it's fixed.
- Upon our return, we will be looking for another used vehicle to purchase so we can have a second vehicle which will allow us to minister more effectively covering more ground at the same time. Please pray that the Lord will lead us to a great deal/vehicle.
- Our monthly support is still lagging by just $250. We are thankful for the many one-time gifts that our faithful supporters have given and are so appreciative! Please pray that our monthly support would be enough to cover all our needs.
- Please pray for travel mercies both to/from Arizona and to Swaziland next week
The time here has gone so fast. We're thankful for the many friends and supporters we have and for the opportunity to renew friendships and establish new ones. It has been such a blessing to be surrounded by so many people who care so deeply for us. We do ask one more thing, please keep in touch with us when we are home. We love to hear how you are doing and any prayer needs that we can pray for covering your needs. At this time, we don't have any plans to return to the States anytime soon so our newsletters and blog will be our primary means of communication to you (unless you contact us in another way).
Hopefully we will have Skype when we are back home and if so, will let you know our Skype name. You can contact us by email at piggwr4647[at]gmail(dot)com, by mail at PO Box 96, Vuvulane L 310, Swaziland, AFRICA or by phone (from the US) 011-268-2313-1428.
