The weekly children and youth efforts continue with good attendance each week. We take a break during the school holidays but continue each term. The year-end prize-givings were well attended with a number of the children and all of the teenagers receiving Bibles. Please pray for these efforts that not only will the young ones learn Bible Stories, that they will also hear and understand the message of Salvation.

Near the end of November we transported all our Sunday School prize items to an empty house and organized everything in the big living room/dining room. Over the next few weeks, we prepared about 2500 prizes for children from eleven different Sunday Schools.

The last Saturday in December we went to a Gospel Hall about 15 minutes away. When we arrived that afternoon, the Sunday School teachers and about 150 children were gathered. One of the teachers gave a short gospel message and then we distributed the prizes. The children were all very happy. The older ones especially were thrilled to receive Bibles. Once school reopened we distributed the remaining prizes. During the school holidays many of the children are busy helping their parents with the fieldwork so it is often better to wait until Sunday School restarts for the year.

The medical work, despite its many challenges, continues to provide many opportunities to share the gospel. It is also a good way to build relationships with people from the surrounding communities. The gospel continues to be preached over the hospital speaker system each morning for all the patients to hear and is again share through the wards on various afternoons. Many of the Christian staff use their time at work to speak to the patients as well.

The fifth annual Namibia Gospel Outreach trip took place in March. Julie and I went in advance to get the texts ordered and make preparations for the arrival of the others. We also enjoyed a few days relaxing by the coast. Thirteen others joined us: three from Zambia, two from South Africa, two from the UK, one from the States and five from Canada. We really appreciated Dan, Dorothy, Jay and Janet joining us from there. They were each such a help and encouragement during our time together. During the two weeks of distribution, the fifteen of us gave out about 58,000 scripture texts as well as many VIA magazines and Sunday School papers and a few Bibles. We saw more rejections than in previous years but most people in the towns and cities we visited were very open and receptive. Please pray for the seed that was sown that it will bring forth eternal fruit.

I arrived home two weeks ago for a few months. It is so nice to be able to get caught up on some things and spend time with family, friends, and fellow believers. It's also a privilege to be able to sit in English meetings.

I am continually amazed with how the Lord answers prayer; both in the big things and small things. Parcels arriving at the perfect time with an item we are desperately needing. Or a seemingly insurmountable challenge at the hospital where we stand back and watch the Lord move mightily on our behalf. Please continue to remember the work of the Lord at Loloma in your prayers. He sees, He understands, and He answers prayer.
