Good News

Good news continues to come out of Nigeria. I spoke with Rev. Sunday in Maiduguri recently, and he confirms that everyone in the villages are still excited about moving forward with the project. However, they have not been able to get back to meet with the District Chief yet, so continue to pray for favor and expedience with this meeting. As I shared last month, I am planning to return to Nigeria at the end of October for at least 2 weeks to begin the process of defining the area of land to be given to us and procuring the documents for legal ownership. Again, we need your prayers for wisdom, direction and favor regarding this outreach.

Sunday's Boys

As you know, God has assembled a native team of Nigerians who share our vision for the Kanuri and have worked faithfully and tirelessly beside us for these past 10 years. I have mentioned many times about the makeup of the team consisting not only of nurses, doctors, ministers and lay people, but also of wives working alongside of their husbands. During our outreach in February as well as my trip in June, we were blessed to not only have spouses but children accompany us on our journeys as well. Rev. Sunday's two boys, Hope and Victory, were able and very willing to join us as we ministered in the bush. Victory helped out alongside Robert with the registering of patients while Hope joined Kristen and Lauren in handing out candy and slippers. Rev. Sunday has told me several times that Victory's desire is to become a doctor so that he can become a part of the team helping the villagers!!

Web Page Update

If you have checked out our web page lately, Dorcasmedical.org, you know that it is out of date by more than a year. My apologies for that, but now it is updated with our latest newsletters and pictures. We invite you to check it out and give us your feedback, positive or negative. What you like or how you think we could make it better.

Van Anniversary

In November, it will be one year since we purchased the van that so many of you made possible by your faithfulness. The observance of this one year anniversary, however, comes with a price. There are taxes, licenses, taxes, and more taxes! There are 5 or 6 decals (ie: taxes) for the vehicle that we are required to have. Some of these are yearly, others are semi-annually. We are constantly checked at security roadblocks and if we are not updated as we should be it is quite a hassle. We would greatly appreciate your help with these expenses that will keep us on the road.
