Spring Has Sprung!

It's been an extremely busy week, with little time for anything extra like blogging. Scott's been teaching every night this week at our Bible Training Center for Teachers. This is held at Allen and Janelle's house the third week of every month. It's a great opportunity for those who would like to attend a Bible school but don't have the financial means or opportunity. Here in South Africa, we run the classes in Tzaneen and have been active in training teachers to run the courses in other places around the country.

We've also been working out more of the details for the food relief program for our orphans. We have several volunteers from here who will help drive the food into the country. For more information and regular updates, please click here.

Scott leaves next week for Mozambique to continue working on getting our residency papers that will allow us to move into the country. He'll also be trying to secure housing for us. Please continue to pray for this transition as there are still many details that have to be worked out, many which are time consuming yet essential.

On the writing side, I'm excited to announce a sale to Love Inspired Suspense! Final Deposit will come out in September 2008. They've already given me a deadline to have my cover art details in by Monday morning, so things are already rolling.

Interested in winning a free copy of my Christmas novella collection Montana Mistletoe that's due out in September? Check out the official Montana Mistletoe blog spot here for details of the contest and our upcoming blog tour.

In the midst of my own busy schedule, I've been reminded of how important it is to not let the urgent outweigh what's really important. Paul said, "So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal." II Corinthians 4:18

Be blessed today!
