Except in Maine, the flowers may not bloom until June. I started some seeds from various vegetables, and I keep hoping the weather will be warm enough to plant the sprouts in the next week or two. Nine months of winter is not my cup of tea. It was warm enough today to go up to Popham Beach and watch the seals for awhile.
Mom is doing much better. We are still watching out for her due to the blood clot and her heart. She is doing more natural things now, so please pray these will disintegrate what is left of the clot.
Throughout the last year, we have continually had visitors to our church in spite of all the fear and mandates spread by our governor. I am teaching the teen and young ladies' Sunday school. In the next few weeks, we will begin an English language class for two African ladies who attend the church. We hope to expand this for other people needing help with English and use the class as a way to witness. I will be teaching, and as needed, we hope to find interpreters.
Please continue to pray for our state. The libs have decided to violate Maine law again. They are ignoring the budget voted on by the entire legislature and voting in a majority budget. They also plan to shut down the legislature and basically leave the governor as a dictator again. Maine lost 100,000 businesses between March and May last year. I have no idea how many more since then. I have read of many people leaving the state because they have homes elsewhere. Please pray that the people will take a stand against any more measures issued by the governor which violate the freedoms guaranteed in the Maine and US Constitutions.
Please pray for me as several pastors have expressed interest in using me to teach English. There are several things that would need to happen before I would feel free to do this. One of those is that mom's health situation would need to be better.
Please pray for missionaries in Myanmar and Haiti as the political situations are dangerous at this time. Pray also for my friends the Coblentz family. They have a daughter with some health issues.
