But first we had to get rid of the mouse infestation in our new trailer. When we left four weeks earlier we winterized the trailer, removed all open food, and locked it up tight. However, we kind of forgot that mice can get in practically anywhere. We had stored under the bed some unopened bags of sunflower seeds. When we came home and opened the door we saw sunflower seed shells throughout the trailer. Yuck, those mice had four weeks to run-a-muck...and they did. We were cleaning up sunflower seed shells, mice droppings, vacuuming, and washing for days. I found where they had gotten in and sealed it up. I also set up traps which did away with a few mice. We haven't seen any evidence of mice now for two weeks. Yay!
The women's seminar went off quite well and Dayle spoke in three sessions to about 40 ladies. I ran the sound booth and recorded the sessions. I am so proud of my Dayle. She really did a good job!
We have been busy doing a lot of hard work not just preparing seminars and courses as well as sermons and Sunday school lessons but also on the facility. We finally ran electricity to the outdoor amphitheater, installed the ice maker, and cleaned the exterior. But we take some time to bike and hike. We especially enjoy hiking the Oregon coastal trail which offers some of the most spectacular coastal views of all of the country.
Our financial support has increased and we are close to meeting our goal. We are currently need another $50 a month to reach 100%. Thank you to all of our faithful financial supporter as well as our prayer supporters.
Please remember to keep us in your prayers as we launch the Brookings Bible Institute (name subject to change). There is still much work to be done here at His Place. We don't know how long we will be here in Brookings but we expect to be here for up to another year. Much depends on how quickly we can make His Place self-sustaining.
1. Wisdom and strength as we work at His Place
2. For His Place to become self-sustaining
3. Dayle's continued fight against osteoporosis and for the new doctor here in Brookings. (She has a bone scan scheduled next week. All blood test came back normal.)
4. For Shelley's sister (Andrea) to find a job.
1. For Dayle's new doctor.
2. For safety as we traveled to Arizona and back.
3. For the continued opportunity to serve here in Brookings
