It’s a beautiful day today in Jordan…..wonderful weather with clear sunny skies and a slight calming breeze. The warmth of the sun fills our souls with such gratitude and peace. I’ve often wonder why we talk of the weather when we don’t quite know what else to say? But today the weather is a reflection of what I feel inside. The blessings keep pouring into our lives! We constantly stand in awe as we stop and pause to see how our life is unfolding. Over the last week we have witnessed many miracles of how the Lord directs the affairs of our lives and the lives of our family and friends. I don’t know why it surprises us sometimes! But, I feel humbled and blessed to recognize His power and His guiding hand in our life. I am reminded of a quote I recently came across …

You have God who hears you
The power of love behind you
The Holy Spirit within you
And all of heaven ahead of you

Today was our Sabbath. We had a large group of BYU students come up from Amman to attend our church meetings in Al Husn. There are 50 students here for the summer to continue their study of the Arabic Language at the University of Jordan. We will have a group of 15 every week taking turns to attend our branch. You could feel the energy from these young people. It was great! After church we invited those that came up to come to our apartment for dinner. Wow, did they eat! It was fun having English speaking people here, but all they wanted to do was use their Arabic. Oh well! I guess we will have company for “Friday dinners” for the next few months. It reminded us of our family Sunday dinners in Kentucky. It was wonderful! Oh, we sure miss that!

We continue to stay busy. We have finished up a few projects recently and continue working on others. But, there are so many more out there. The hardest thing is to determine what the Lord wants… for this area… for this time. So we constantly pray for His “will” to be known, and how we best can serve!

We think of you all often. We love you and pray for you. Thank you for your support and prayers.

Just wanted to wish you a "Happy Mother's" day to all of you mothers. Hope you all had a wonderful day.

I've been trying to improve my computer skills. So what do you think? It's late and we got to get up real early in the morning to take care of Customs and Paper work in Amman for a container coming in, so this will be short, but attached is our latest newsletter. Sure love you and pray for you always!
