Bones, Mangoes, a View, and Answered Prayer

Here is the promised picture of Joyce's coral and snake bone jewelry. If you click on the picture and enlarge it you can get a better view. Amazingly it looks so very nice with the things she has worn it with. Watch out snakes - Joyce's in on the hunt!
Here is a picture of Joyce and I at the Mango Festival with some of the mangoes on display. These were not even the largest ones.

The picture below was taken by Rob Watt and is the heading picture on his blog. It is a shot of the northern most tip of Guam, Ritidian Point. It was taken from the front yard of other fellow missionaries Bill and Christel Wood. If you enlarge this picture also you can see see the island of Rota about 40 miles north of the northern tip of Guam. Look just to the left of Ritidian on the horizion line (looks like it is sitting in the right most "v" created by the tree in the foreground). Doesn't the beauty of God's creation just make you sing His praises?

One of Steve's jobs while in the States this summer was to locate a person that would meet the qualifications and needs PIU has for a Foundation Researcher/Grant Writer. We are also praising God for His answered prayer in leading Steve to that person. Her name is Katherine Currie and we will be introducing her to you shortly. Please pray for her this next week as she will be attending a training conference sponsored by our accrediting agencey.

More praise to the Lord!

Hey Everybody,

This is just a quick note to let you know that I saw my eye doctor again today. My eye is exactly the same as it was after the miracle - no change. What this means is that I can continue wearing the same style of contact lens, but stick to the 10 hours a day schedule. If I have to go longer, up to 12 hours in a day, then I should take a whole day off soon after that day. I'll get checked again in August before I return to Guam.

Thank you for your prayers, and let's keep praising the Lord.
