Jambo my friends; While this is not the regular monthly update I do want to share some of the goings on with you.

Foremost the Micro franchise was begun in easy fashion and while the jury is our as far as the real ability to save and pay back the loan all indications are very positive. The Board is expecting it will be four to five months before we have a real demonstration of the villages readiness to jump to this level in the economy. Prayer for them is certainly appropriate and helpful.

We are expecting to launch the “cow project” in October when we are there, that will be part of the work we will participate in, more of that in a week or two.

There is plenty of room for additional travelers but the time is getting short, Mid August will be benchmark if you do not have your Passport or your International shots yet.

There are certainly things going on which are in the preliminary stages for the village and I hope to share some of that in the coming days.

Last week I had the opportunity to shoot through Seattle and talk to a few folks in Blaine Washington. What a great evening we had. The reception was just great and the fellowship and interest in our little village was very encouraging. As I learned during the years of Go and Do Likewise here locally, I never know who is being ministered to, so we Just Do It. This is a great way to go forth.

So far we have had three meetings to present the work and hope for Rionchogu, I believe two a month is very minimal, but I need your help. Please pray about getting a few folks together in your house, a Subway sandwich, some cold drinks and a few interested folks make for a great evening. There is no minimum number, but I hope we could get five or six. The main thing is we continue to talk about this. So, again my request is, help me please, the story is powerful in itself, we just simply tell the story.Blessings and love.

P.S. I will go almost anywhere to share the story, just a little bit of advance notice and we can do this.
