Just thought I should update you on life at Sakeji! Yes, it is finally almost here- end of term!! One week today and the kids will be heading home. They are excited for sure. Every morning when we wake them up, they run out to change the number of days till end of term on the white board. I suspect it will be a wild week. Exams are finished tomorrow and teachers are working on report cards.
Tim had another issue with not feeling well last weekend but we have him on some antibiotics again and he is doing better again. Aly has been able to get him a doctor's appointment for him as soon as we get home. So that is good.
We celebrate that 6 boys and 2 girls have come to faith in Jesus this term. We are praising the Lord for how he is working.
And a highlight of our week- one week ago was the birth of a new grandson! Katie and Bronson had a little baby boy. Well not little- just nice size for a baby that was almost two weeks overdue- 9 lb 7 oz. his name is
Kason Jim Donald Taylor ( Kason- combination of Katie and Bronson). He is well and healthy and we are praising God for his safe arrival. I think it was a little rough on Katie and Bronson but they pulled through. Bronson very kindly sent us hourly reports so that we could be somewhat involved from a distance. The storms stayed away until just about an hour after he was born so we had internet for quite a bit of the time. The students had been waiting for the birth as well and everyone was excited to see his picture on the computer. Now we are excited to see him in person hopefully In two weeks.
We should arrive in Toronto on dec. 8th if all goes well and plan to spend a few days with this new baby. Tim and Judy will pick us up and drive us back to Thessalon on dec. 15 weather depending. We hear that you are getting snow. No snow here!!
Thank you for your prayers and interest.
