"I will praise You O Lord, with my whole heart; I will tell of all Your marvelous works. I will be glad and rejoice in You; I will sing praise to Your name, O Most High. (Psalm 9:1-2)."
Dear pastor Tom and brother Roger and all the supporters. Greetings to all in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Thank you for your prayers and support. You have expressed unconditional love and care and are a great example to us as children of Christ on this earth.
Praising the Lord: God has heard all our prayers and made us humble in our daily lives by blessing our Bryce Homes children in their schooling with great results, good health and meeting the needs of children.
Spiritual Blessing: This year all children who attended the V.B.S. in the month of May learned about the necessity of living a new life in Jesus and then living this new life daily. The children understood sin and its effect on their lives and the blessing of living for Jesus. All confessed their sins and prayed that God be with them always so they would constantly walk with the Lord. I praise the Lord who has worked in their hearts.
Physical Blessing: June 20th, schools were reopened due to heat wave. During the heat wave children faced health problems for a few days but by God’s care and some medication they are now healthy. By the grace of God, children entered new classes. God has heard all our prayers and has helped us with the needs of our children by providing education.
