- Praise the Lord that He brought Peter and Janet to rent our house. Pray that they will be settled there and feel that it is home.
- Please pray for our children, Niall and Sorche, as they settle into school and dorm life. Pray for good friends for both of them and that they will be able to handle the adjustment to a new school routine.
- We are so thankful for the many people who have pledged to support us financially. Please continue to pray for this area, for our understanding of the new things we are encountering and that God will provide for us in all areas.

The weaving of our lives with other Christians through this journey to Germany has been a surprise at times but such a blessing. When we met with our lawyer back in the spring, we found out she was a graduate of BFA and had lived in the dorm we have been assigned to. She was thrilled to hear we were heading off to serve there. Then she called to invite us for lunch in August to meet a BFA schoolmate of hers who has been serving there for the past 16 years, Michele Phoenix. We had heard her name mentioned at orientation in Winnipeg and were thrilled to meet her in person. She was able to fill us in on life at BFA and particularly at Storchenblick dorm where she has helped out. We had a lovely time and felt privileged to have met her here in Canada. Please pray for her health and strength as she deals with the latest news about her cancer.
