Just letting everybody know – we’re still here! We have had a great few weeks here in Massachusetts visiting with my family as well as meeting some wonderful churches. Mountain View Baptist Church in Holyoke, MA especially was a blessing to us. While there, we met a Cambodia lady and her family. She had actually survived the Khmer Rouge and escaped to America back in the 1970s. Now she and her family plan to return to Cambodia to work at an orphanage. This was our first time to meet a Cambodian in the US, and we greatly enjoyed getting to know her, her husband, and the friendly folks of the church.
Another blessing has been being involved in Cornerstone Baptist Church. This church, is located in Pittsfield, where we have been staying for the past few weeks. They met for many years in an old grange hall. Just a few years ago, the grange recognized the faithfulness of this church by giving them the building. Much work has gone into renovation. The building now looks like a church, with fresh paint, a steeple, and a redone interior. I was privileged to help Pastor Neiner in the ongoing work of remodeling the kitchen, the last leg of the project.
We still have a couple of weeks to enjoy the New England summer before heading back south. Thanks everyone for your encouragement, prayers, and support!
