Hello!

Dear brothers and sisters!

So much has happened in our lives since we wrote our last newsletter in May, but we can, without a doubt, say that we have felt carried and strengthened by your prayers. Thank you!

One of our prayer requests in May was that we could sell the house… Well, one day after the house was put on the market, an offer (for the full price) was given, and the following day, the contract was signed! It was truly a miracle! So, our house in Park Forest is now sold, and we’ve been in Florence, South Carolina for about a week now.

The Lord provided our new home in a way that He can only do! We are so grateful to see Him at work. The owner of the house let us live here with a lease according to our needs, and the house is in one of the most beautiful areas of the city. The owner’s aunt who is 91 years old lives next door. She loves having our kids around! She has 3 children (and 9 grand-kids and 9 great grand kids), who live in the same neighborhood, so we pray that the Lord will reveal Himself to one of them and that it will have a snow ball effect 🙂

Our children are doing well getting adjusted to the southern life. It still feels pretty hot to us ha!

Here are some prayer requests that we would like to share with you:

  • The Salvation of the McLeod family (our landlord, his cousins and aunt).
  • The completion of the GED test for Melek so that she can homeschool our children.
  • Open doors for the ministry to get started.
  • Provision for us as a family as well as for the ministry.
Once again, thank you for your support. Feel free to ask us any question you may have.

Below are some pictures and a brief but powerful testimony!
Nolan's Miracle

Just the day before our departure to South Carolina, Nolan woke up with a sharp pain in his right hip that kept him from standing up or walking. After taking him to the doctor, we were sent to the ER at Advocate Children's Hospital in Chicago for further testing...

After a few hours, they said it looked like an inflammation on the hip bone (hoping there were no infection) they sent him home for 24h. but Nolan remained unable to walk.

Once at home together with some of our close friends we prayed over Nolan, and as soon as we finished, he got up by himself and started walking!! We saw the instant healing power at work! Praise God! What a privilege to witness this in our son's life!

  1. So happy to hear all this. God is good!! He gives us more than we expect. He knows what we need so He will gives us the best. I’m so glad Melek and the family are doing well! You deserve it! We will miss you on the women’s breakfast that we used to get together once a month. That’s where I met Melek. You will be missed, but happy you are doing good.
