Melanie started the school year yesterday with new pupil Joel eager to dive in to the mix. Starting early means we will have more flexibility with our schedule later in the year. Meanwhile I am preparing to head over to Holland on Friday for five days at the OM new recruits’ conference. Please pray for the people joining OM who arrive today, and for me as I prepare to speak to them a few times. We are also trying to get our latest prayer letter finished so it can be printed . . . should be with you before too long.
