Guatemala - Tony, Carrie and boys -
Such good reports from Carrie who began meeting with pastors' wives. Carrie is blessing them through teaching and encouragement. Tony continually reaches out to the pastors who also need much encouragement. Many have been healed of hurts, their minds are being renewed and many have been healed physically by the Lord. Tony and Carrie have been stateside raising funds and sharing their continued vision for Jacaltenango. Pray for their family as they travel back to Guatemala soon.
The Shores dream came true, the Urban Rhythm Cafe and Youth Center in Lobatse. A license for the food truck is still in limbo with city officials. The food truck would provide the needed $100 a day to cover the rent of the building, internships, reach 4 life clubs in schools, salaries, youth center outreach, and Friday night services. Many, many youth of Lobatse have come to know the Lord through this avenue of outreach. Pray for all the logistics to be finalized. Pray for the youth to totally commit to the Lord and discipleship. Pray for the Shores rest, health, and energy to keep up with all the ministry around them.

South Africa, Joe & Terri
Praise reports: all the family is healthy, all the missionary visas are given through 2018, more opportunities to speak and share the gospel are opening up, many people are coming to the Lord, being baptized and desiring a Bible study. Such good news! Pray for expanded outreach where the COTR mission team held medical clinics. Pray for the relationships in this very poor area of Lipa to deepen. Pray for safety as the Clendenen family steps into dark areas of despair and hopelessness. The construction of the Camp Anihan has yet to begin, pray for this project to begin and bring unity amongst churches.
Joe & Terri are wrapping up a trip to visit missionaries throughout Europe & Israel. Pray for refreshing as they come home and for the east delivery of a new grandbaby!
