And Now for This Commercial Message

Some of you have asked about supporting us financially, and we are humbled by your responsiveness and generosity. We now have a link to a page that allows you to use a credit card to give online. Here's how: Click on the link to the right that says "contribute to this work online" and you will be redirected to a secure page. Scroll to near the bottom of the page where you'll see "Missionary Donation." Under that you'll see "Select Missionary from this Menu." If you open it, you will see all the CRWRC missionaries, and at the bottom under "volunteers," there we are! Click on us, then fill out the form and you're all set.

We will now resume our regular program, Blog Update, already in progress:

Item: I am sick again, this time with a strep/staph infection that has me down with strep throat and nasty sores on my right hand. No pictures this time, my mom reads this thing. But I'm on an antibiotic so I hope that will do the trick.

Item: Our friend Henry Tredah died suddenly last week, and his wife Mary Joyce is near death with a completely different illness. Henry was the man who managed the orphanage on the beach. A large but very quiet, soft spoken man, he cared about the kids-- he just did not know how to care for them. He did not have the skills to run an orphanage, so we worked together to make a better home for the children. Henry supported the closure, supported the transfer of the children to Mother Wleh. We are unsure of the cause of death. Mary is in the hospital near death, and likely will die soon. Liver failure. We visited her, and then the family at their home. They have four young children.

Item: The Reeds are in The Gambia! CRWRC sent the whole family to The Gambia for a week of R&R from other CRWRC and World Mission folks, so even though I feel lousy, its a nice place to be sick.
