Last month I received the annual updates on M, my sponsored child in Moldova. I was so happy to hear that he was able to attend summer camp! His favorite subjects now are physical education and art/crafts. Based on that update info, I have a feeling he had a blast at camp!

I was assigned a new family- and what a family! They have 6 children at home with 2 grown sons. Life is difficult for them but I look forward to seeing lots of baby steps forward as they move towards a better life. If you would like to assist a family towards a brighter future, you can visit Mission Without Borders and have a look around!
And speaking of baby steps (the Dave Ramsey kind). It's been a two steps forward, one step back kind of month here. I lost one shift at work which will slow the getting out of debt and going to Albania process down a bit. It ultimately came down to working Saturday overnights. I had to stand my ground and say no, hoping that an arrangement would be made and I would be free and rested for church on Sunday mornings. Well, no arrangement has been offered so I essentially gave up a shift. But I had a wonderful Sunday morning. Well rested, I went to the early 9 am service, and walked at the zoo afterwards. Then a nap, lunch and work this afternoon. This is a much better schedule for me though. So I need to tighten the belt and find ways to make up as much as I can (beans and rice time!).
