The CAM (Christian Academy in Mozambique) school year is quickly coming to a close on June 8th. This year we are graduating nine students who are busy seeking the Lord as they decide their future studies and the Lord's leading. It has been a challenging year, but we give praise to the Lord in all things and we pray for a strong finish. We are a few teachers short for the new school year in August and appreciate your prayers as we interview and decide who to hire. Finding qualified teachers is a challenge in Mozam-bique.
A recent development is that Susan was having severe pain and has been diagnosed with gallstones. Her surgery was postponed on May 13 and we are now praying for wisdom about when she can have the surgery. In the meantime, pray the pain doesn't return.
Larry continues to keep busy with two business offices to oversee and all the grounds maintenance workers, repairs and construction on the campus and around CAM school.
The seminary program is running well and there are about 75 students in the day and night courses. Your prayers for these students and for the finances needed to continue the program are appreciated.
Our national church, the Living Word Evangelical Church, continues to show spiritual growth. We are thankful for this new growth and the involvement of those from the churches who help with the OMS Helping Hands ministry to the disabled and those who help with the church women's programs.
One of the schools continuing challenge is the poor condition of the road to the school/OMS compound. There are still 300 meters of sand/unpaved road that in the rainy season becomes impassable and filled with large potholes that cars and even a school bus gets stuck in. We keep praying the government will finish paving the road. We still need to deal with high water in the "road" that becomes a "river" that cuts off the entrance to the school. Several times during the rainy seasons we have to close school because the water is too deep for vehicles to cross into our compound.
