The adult dialysis organization will help with her dialysis. We are all so happy for her. She has never known anyone in her family. Merry Christmas!
7/26/2003. Steve and Mitch worked all day yesterday and today to fix the water problem. I fact they started at 3am yesterday and would work until 9 pm. But due to their expertise we have water. The teenagers threw a surprise birthday party for me that brought me to tears. They even had a band and a preacher from the area come and play and then preach. We use every excuse to minister the Word to the children. The pastor preached on “Three Fathers” and 12 teenagers got saved. What a wonderful birthday gift that was. I cannot believe I am 60 years old.
