Boil on My Face

 Mike's Ugly Painful Boil with makeup.

Last week, a spot below my right eye started hurting. I thought it might be too much chocolate, giving me a pimple. :-) It got more and more sore as the week went on. My face got so swollen, I thought I might be getting the Mumps. It started to come to the surface on Friday. So I treated it will hydrogen peroxide and antibiotic ointment. Today, it is much better, but Sue is putting makeup on it so it isn't too ugly. Today we talked with John on the Internet and showed him my sore. It was a boil! A boil involves an infected hair follicle.

Heavenly Father, thank You that Mike's Boil wasn't as bad as it could have been. Make it to heal well and not to come back! Help them to get their car soon.

Car, Sound and Healing

Much patience is bearing much fruit. We should have our car in the next ten days. The acoustics in our church are much improved. We spent a Friday morning trying various modifications to the sound system settings. We are no longer using it. We found the ideal location for the leader to stand. A small amplifier, with speaker, is adding volume on the floor. The echo is almost gone.

Heavenly Father, we pray that You would heal our brother Dave of his violent stomach virus and his wife of her respiratory virus. May You be glorified and others be amazed by Your power to heal.

Ordered a Berlingo

Citroën Berlingo First.

After months of asking you to pray, we ordered a new Citroen Berlingo. They are called a leisure activity vehicle, meaning a roomy subcompact car with doors on the back. It should make our lives much simpler. Sunday's are quite difficult with all the stuff we haul to church in a taxi. We are looking forward to visiting our church visitors and members more easily.

Heavenly Father, thank You for providing the funds for this new car. Bless all the Farho prayer partners and donors as they have blessed the Farhos.

Happy 12th Birthday, Joshua!

Joshua at Auqua Palace last summer
It is fun for Joshua that he has his birthday on Wednesday, since that is Awana Club day. He will get to share cake, that mom is baking right now, with about 40 people. It will be fun. Once again we will rent a Renault car to drive up to Tunis. Since we don't have our permanent resident visa yet, we don't want to invest a lot of money in a car. Yesterday, I went alone by the train to Tunis. For more than two people, it is cheaper to rent a car.

Heavenly Father, thank You for reliable trains and rental cars in Tunisia. Keep the Farhos safe as they travel each week. Help them to get their resident visas soon.

Driving to Tunis Twice

It will be a quick day trip Wednesday to visit the main duty office. It could be possible for us to purchase a car without paying import duty. It make a tremendous difference in the price. For example, a new 4x4 Toyota 4 door pickup with duty is $48,000 or $26,000 without duty. We are seeking God's will about the real need for a vehicle. Now, we take public transportation or rent a car when we can't walk. We also have two visitors coming this weekend from Omaha's Christ Community Church.

Heavenly Father, give Mike and his friends safe travels. Give grace in the eyes and hearts of the duty agents, to give the Farhos permission to purchase a duty-free vehicle.

Grateful for your partnership in prayer,
Mike and Sue Farho
