I am back in the States! I arrived last night in Birmingham, Alabama where my wife Sharon is visiting her mom.
The trip was a grand success in many ways; I got many of the photos taken for the kids needing sponsorship, and spent time in the village and at the project with many people.
About 10 minutes ago, I made my very first phone call to Mario in Nicaragua. In the past, it has always been email, as I have had the help of the computer to translate my English into Spanish. Anyway, I just called Mario to find out about my friend Martin, who is dying of the kidney disorder from the pesticides. He is still alive; about the same as he was yesterday. Amazing. But he is a young man in his 30s and very strong. I left money with our highly trusted friend and helper Mario for Martin’s funeral expenses.
I will send a full report in the next few days. Thank you for praying.
