Take a walk through June ...

What a GREAT month this was ... new friendships, ministry and family fun!

This month we celebrated Lacie's 5th birthday, and enjoyed spending the day in Mbabane. We also got to meet her Gogo Polly (Monica's Mom) who had just arrived in from Florida. What a great day of food, friends, fun and fellowship, thanks Allen Family!!!!

We welcomed a new volunteer team from West Virginia, Rev. Steve Willis and Jeremy Allen, as they served at Phuzumoya Baptist Church teaching church leadership classes. We also had the privilege of hosting Hunter and Brinkley Johnson (sisters) from the South Roanoke Baptist Association (NC). They came to spend a week with our family, and served in different areas throughout the Lubombo region. Please pray for Hunter and Brinkley as they return back to the US on July 8. They have spent a month here in Swaziland serving with the Allens in Mbabane, and also with the Myers in Nhlangano. What a blessing it was to meet and serve alongside them all ~ thank you for your friendship, and for coming to share the love of Christ!
