|Cliff and Kathy Vellinga and myself at humanitarian project|
It has been a rainy week here, I almost feel like my toes are starting to web. I heard that in the month of April we had more than 10" of rain! We are lucky to get 4" a year in Las Vegas.
This week I enjoyed attending a celebration at a school with the Vellingas, who are serving as humanitarian missionaries. They had helped with this project at a local elementary school. The Dept. of Health was going to close this school because of the poor conditions of the restrooms. The church went in, tore out the old, decaying wood and replaced everything with painted cinder block, tile and new toilets. The kids had made decorations, and prepared a musical program to show appreciation. It was my first ribbon cutting for new bathrooms. Good job - Vellingas!
Friday afternoon we closed the office early to go to the movie theater to see "My Big Fat Greek Wedding #2. I was more than ready to get away from the computer, which I had been working at for hours. The movie had some good laughs and

My Scripture for the week come my reading this week in Mosiah 7:19-20: "Therefore, lift up your heads, and rejoice, and put your trust in God, in that God who was the God of Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob; and also, that God who brought the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt, and caused that they should walk through the Red Sea on dry ground, and fed them with manna that they might not perish in the wilderness; and many more things did he do for them.
