Though hotly debated and protracted beyond a reasonable period, we are thankful that the Kenya elections were relatively peaceful. There were claims and counterclains of rigging and corruption. It seems at this time, although the winning candidate won with just a small percentage, the country has accepted the outcome and is ready to get on with their lives.

August 23rd is quickly approaching - the day of our departure to Cambodia. Furlough is coming to a close, and we will be returning with two more individuals than we left with. Our son, Christopher, after speding his freshman year in Bible college will be returning to the field for a year. It will be nice to be together as a family again. Also, we are excited about Joy Zdziarski, a young lady from Illinois, who will be teaching several of our church's young people in our growing Christian school.

So many times, it is what some may call "small things" that God uses to accomplish much for His Glory! God is answering prayer and doing many things around the globe. In the South Pacific, the David Smith family, serving in New Zealand, received their residency visas!

God is our help and our shield (Psalm 33:20). As many of you know, a van that we had rented for our trip to camp blew a tire, control was lost due to some other issues with the steering, and after hitting the burn of the edge of the highway, our van rolled over several times. God protected us in a wonderful way and only I received the brunt of the collision. The 14 boys with me in the van climbed out through the windows with barely a scratch.
