We have had a lot of activity this summer and some of it I'm glad to see the end of!
Bad news first, Georgie, from Casa Hannah has tuberculosis. I went to Ohio for a new knee, that all went well, but it was then that we found out he was in the hospital. The TB hospital is quite nice, we supply all Georgies needs but they are taking good care of him and we expect him to come home in about 6 months when he is no longer active. This is what they told us anyway. Georgie is severely handicapped and needs total care.
We have only arrived home a few days ago so lots of work to be done. The kids are all excited about my new stainless steel knee and want to see my scar all the time and hear the story. I stayed in a nursing home after surgery for 2 weeks and then went to our daughters home for 6 weeks. All is well and PT is working great. My hospital bill alone was $78,000, PRAISE GOD FOR MEDICARE! My part was just over $700.
While we were in Ohio, Central Baptist from Round Rock Texas came out and took 9 of our children to a Christian camp in the mountains for one week, everyone had a great time, this is the second time they have gone and we look forward to more in the future.
Money is tight, we realize everyone is having hard times but we ask please stay with us, no matter what the amount you donate, that money is saving lives of children who cannot even speak their needs, its filling food baskets for the widowed and elderly and we are still praying about doing a soup kitchen sometime in the future, when God speaks. Our little church has doubled attendance in the past year, we Praise God for touching the hearts and minds of the Romanians and letting them see the truth.
We thank all of you who have made this all happen for the past 22 years. God bless you all, please pray that Georgie comes home soon.
By the way, we were all tested and none of us have TB, only through Him do we survive.
From His Fields of Harvest,

Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being stained.
