Cavin's Birthday Weekend

Well, tomorrow is Cavin's 42nd birthday!  I guess we're not so young anymore!  We started celebrating today by going to one of our favorite restaurants - New York Bagel and by ordering from Wing Zone tonight.  We will continue eating tomorrow by going to lunch at another favorite restaurant - The Market and tomorrow we'll boil shrimp for supper and have ice cream cake from Dairy Queen.  If you can't tell, we enjoy eating good food!  We are not going hungry here in Panama!  I guess we'll have to quit eating on Sunday for the rest of next week!

On a serious note, this week Cavin is highlighted in the Missions Mosaic - the WMU monthly magazine that focuses on missionaries and lists missionaries who are having birthdays each day.  If you have access to a copy, please check it out.  There is a picture of him and a brief article about our work here in Panama. It means so much to know that Southern Baptists all over the world are praying for us on our birthdays.

We have a team arriving Tuesday from Oklahoma.  This is one of our teams who partner with us.  Many of the team members were here last year working with us!  We are excited about seeing them and working with them again.  Please pray for them as they work with two of our church planters in two different parts of the City.

Greetings from a prayer warrior,
I read about you and your ministry this a.m. during my time with God. I prayed for the needs you mentioned and mailed you a prayer note but I forgot to say 'happy birthday.' God be with you and bless you and yours as you serve Him.
Because of Jesus
