Praise and prayer August 2012

TAMMY’S PRAISE AND PRAYER AUGUST 2012 HOME IN THE STATES WITH MY FAMILY. PRAISE 1)PRAISE that my travels to the US were good (45 hours long, but good flights for the most part). 2)PRAISE to be able to spend my vacation for this year with my family in Oregon. It’s been such a blessing to be able to love on my grand daughter Riley!! 3)PRAISE that I was able to spend time with my Sunday church class (Mainstream) at camp the 1st week-end I was here and for all the care I received joining many for meals and relaxation. (*_*) 4)PRAISE that I will be attending the ANAMED (Natural Medicine in the tropics) course in Malawi next week. I should be able to gain much more understanding and ideas from this program. This is what I have been teaching the committee of 12 in the villages and they want to learn more. I was able to attend my son Rob’s wedding (pictured below with his wife Caitlin) this past week and also spend time with my daughter, her husband and my grand daughter (pictured below) while here.
LAST YEARS Costs to send a Secondary student to school for the year was about $300 USD. This amount included School fees, uniforms, shoes, school supplies, books and hygiene supplies. Please consider helping these kids change the course of their families lives! We had up to 46% inflation on some things and in the 20’s on others. We also had devaluation of the kwacha (Malawian money) and it gave strength to our USD. Old was k145 to $1 and new k278 to $1. PRAYER 1)Please PRAY for my parting once again from my family. This is always a difficult time, especially with my grand daughter Riley. 2)Please PRAY for safe travels back to Malawi and my time at the ANAMED course. That I would be alert and adjust back to the time change of 9 hours ahead quickly. 3)PRAY that my landlord issues will be resolved soon. He has been yelling at and harassing my day worker. 4)Please PRAY that I would have a good response to supporting the secondary school students that did well in their studies last year. That we would have supporters to send them again this year. This is the only way these kids can continue their education. School starts again in a few weeks. Due to the high inflation this past year and the kwacha devaluation, I will need to refigure all the costs and fees that will now be needed to send each student. I will do this when I return to Malawi this week before my Natural medicine course and put it in my newsletter. Time is short for school planning. THANKS FOR ALL YOUR PRAYERS AND ENCOURAGEMENTS!
