Here are some random happenings and prayer needs going on for us right now:

*We've received good news from Swaziland about Bheveni's Busi. I shared several days ago about her and asked my readers to pray for her recovery from mouth surgery. The doctor did a biopsy at the time out of concern that she might have cancer. Praise God! The test came back and there is no cancer. It is only an infection that the doctor will continue to treat with medication as well as remove one more tooth next week.

*Another Swazi girl needs prayer. One of our sponsored girls is in a situation that needs to change before things potentially get critically worse. Please pray for God to move in this situation and for things to happen that need to happen.

*And while we're on the subject of Swaziland, we are trying to wrap up loose ends where our Delta SkyMiles are concerned and then hopefully buy our African trip airline tickets this week. Please keep on praying for ridiculously low prices and sufficient financial provision.

*I am collecting items to sell in consignment stores to raise money for missions, primarily but not limited to the support of African ministries. I would love to have your gently used fall and winter clothing (men, women's, children, and babies), fashion accessories, collectibles, picture frames, artwork, antiques, record albums, baby items, and shoes. If you have any vintage clothing items, such as clothes that an elderly relative wore or things you've held on to from the 70's or 80's, we've got a local shop that sells these, too. I'll be making a big delivery to stores in about a week and a half if you want to get me things before then.

*Jim is preaching tomorrow at Restoration Church. God has given him such an incredible gift of teaching and a passion for sharing the knowledge of God with others. Our pastor usually has him teach a few times a year. If you don't have any place to worship tomorrow and want some deep, meaty teaching, we'd love to have you there!
