Farho Family Update


We are grateful that the Internet allows us close contacts with our friends and family. We are able to visit with John frequently. He is doing well. His shoulder is becoming stronger and more flexible each day. Joshua is doing well at homeschool. He seems more mature each day, even adding body hair and odors! Sue is grateful that her migraines are becoming rare. The ringing in my ears continues, but the pain I had in my feet is now gone.

Your prayers are needed, as we will be on the road for the next six weeks. We hope to send you weekly updates, but don't know if it will be possible. If you don't get updates from us, you might still find news from us at our blogs: http://blogs.farho.net

Heavenly Father, we ask You again to heal this ringing in Mike's ears. Help him to hear clearly, to facilitate his learning of Arabic. Keep the Farhos safe and healthy during their six weeks away from home.

Joshua's school books arrived with huge bill

Joshua's 5th grade homeschool books arrived FedEx from USA on Thursday. The transit bill was $351 on $860 of books. We sent out a quick prayer request on our mini Blog. "I need to go negotiate with the duty office today! Pray!!" Then we went to pick up his books. We negotiated the bill of $351 to $22. Only $63 was duty, which was removed. We gave the FedEx man a New Testament, as we thanked him for his help. He said, "I'm a Muslim, but I'm going to read this Bible and carry it with me everywhere I go!"

As we were loading Joshua's books into our car, another FedEx worker asked me if I could bring him a New Testament. So I went back there today with two more New Testaments. I spent about an hour visiting with the duty agent.

Heavenly Father, may these seeds of Your Word sprout healthy souls for eternity. Thank You for making it possible to reduce that huge transit bill to a small expense.
