Adults and children alike agree that Wrestle-O-Rama is a wonderful Fairhaven tradition. The academy boys get to compete, and everyone else gets to enjoy not only watching them, but also enjoying the delicious food! After the wrestling champions have received their trophies, the food auction begins. Mr. Ramos always finds ways to make the bidding exciting! From singles, to families, to academy classes, there was something for everyone to bid on. It was a great night! [...]

Since our last report, we have continued to enjoy the Lord's blessings in our furlough travels and meetings.

Although words seem inadequate, we want to send a big thank you for the missions trip by the Olsons. They did a great job of organizing and planning this trip. As for the entire group, they seemed to have a good attitude and a servant's heart. (Thanks to Sharon Edwards and the Olsons as they brought along all the humor and sarcasm; they were nutty!) The crew helped us with preaching/teaching, bible lessons, testimonies, practical stories, object lessons, games, set up;take down, musical accompaniment, special music, and manual labor.

This week we were still trying to get things cleaned up or up-to-date, and broken things fixed. We still have two broken washing machines, but hopefully the mechanic will finally come tomorrow. Yesterday morning I started a two-part series on "the will of God", as Pastor Rafael has scheduled me to preach two Sunday mornings.
