The following update has come our way from Dorcas Croft, the Global Partners missionary to Swaziland we support as a local church:
As the date for our return back to Swaziland draws closer we desire your prayers. We are getting closer to reaching our goal and believe that by July we will have 100% of our targeted amount. Please help us pray that we will reach this goal on time.
As we return to Swaziland we will be going back to many changes. We will be the only missionaries assigned to Emmanuel Wesleyan Bible College other than Selinda Ingalls who will be coming at a later date. The college is struggling in many areas and we desire your prayers.
Mathias is doing well. Although he is happy about returning to Swaziland, he told me the other day that he is missing Swaziland less than before. He has gotten involved in many things that he enjoys so much: swimming, piano and drum lessons. Clubhouse at church on Wednesday nights. Playing basketball at the YMCA. He is doing well with school and enjoys reading. He has grown so much I know the Swazis will be surprised how much he has grown.
Below are prayer request:
1. Pray we reach our targeted goal by July 1, 2009
2. Pray Emmanuel Wesleyan Bible College (EWBC) can find a principal and needed staff.
3. Pray for the finances of the college.
4. Pray for new students for second semester. (July)
5. Pray for students who are struggling to pay their school bills. If they are not paid by the end of May they will have to be sent home.
Thank you for your partnership whether it be through prayer or support.
