August 15 Update

Thank you all for your prayers for our children.  Polly is home from the hospital and feeling better.  (Saturday she butchered three chickens for us.)   She's developed a rash from the antibiotics.  Today she goes back to the doctor.

Now my brother William is in the same hospital with pneumonia.  Please keep him in your prayers.

Pastor Nasuf reported two people saved in his villages this week.

The children start school this week.  They're all home-schooled.  Next month Maggie should start Bulgarian kindergarten.

August 9 Update

It's certainly been a slow week here.  I only preached twice this week.  Most of our time has been spent in resting, caring for the children, and visitting Polly at the hospital.  

Today Katy and Isaac are about ninety percent recovered from their illness.  Polly is doing better.  Yesterday she had another x-ray which showed improvement.  Today she is having blood work done.  The doctor should tell us today when she can come home.  

Our missionary friends and family have been very helpful to us this week.  We also want to thank you all for your concern and prayers.  

From Bulgaria,

August 3 Update

All of last week I was in Romania.  We spent three days working with the national pastors on the new hymns.  They were thrilled with the new hymn book.  Helping us were pastors and their families from Bulgaria.  Then my family came up, along with the other missionaries from Bulgaria for four days of English church.  In those four days we heard some excellent preaching!  

This week has been much more difficult.  Three of our children are sick with pneumonia.  Polly was so bad that the doctor sent her straight to the hospital.  She is now in the intensive care unit.  Her room is clean and the nurses so far have been very helpful, and we thank the Lord for that.  

Pray for us.
