A story that we have invested in...

Tina's story has been amazing to be apart of.  She graduated this last Saturday at Whitworth College with her Master in Business Administration.  To get a MBA is super hard and to do it with the background she had was even tougher and she got top grades and we are so proud.  (Run on sentence - I know!) This is her on her graduation day at her reception.  This is her story in her schools paper...   Tina's Story- click on this

Here is her graduation speech.  It is a bit long but worth it if you have the time!  SO SO Proud of her.  We will see where God has her next!

A small story about a boy from the village and now in the Master programs

One of Bob's student that is in the Master's program. The top picture is when he was a little boy! So Herricks Gwazeni met a missionary that came to his village ( seriously in the middle of nowhere Africa) in Dowa and kept in contact with him. He later sent him this picture.  You can see the arrow is pointing to him as he is the last little boy at the end.   He is now the oldest student in the program as he is 55.  They have finished their first year already.   Please continue to pray as we are in the end of school year and the new word for this month is busy busy busy!
