We’re having lots of rain here these days,most likely due to Wilma and aftermath. It always rains a lot in Panama,but the daily pattern has been very unusual,like pouring at 7:30 in the morning,or at 6:30 at night,almost unheard of to have rain at those hours. We have had a long stretch of no rain,also unusual,so this rain has been welcome,except when we have to drive through it! We’re thankful to be in Panama,which is always saved from the worst of the hurricanes,thanks to its geographic location.
Chaz has postponed his trip to eastern Panama for Scripture distribution. Our visas and temporary 3-month cards were delayed until Friday,the day he originally planned to go. Due to other scheduling difficulties,he is now looking at mid-November. Please pray for provision of funds for the flight and other costs,as well as decent weather and good health so both he and Maximiliano,and possibly Bienvenido,can all go.
Doug’s dad has taken a turn for the worse again,so Doug may move up his departure to as soon as possible. He had a power surge in his house on Saturday and lost several appliances,including the refrigerator,but not his computer. He’s trying to get all those repairs done,plus finish up Colossians. He reports he and Abundio have only another page or so to go,and it’s been going well. Please pray that they can finish it and he can get things all done so he can leave to see his dad. He appreciates your prayers very much.
