At last we have a home in Beulah!

Dear Friends and Prayers: <x-tad-smaller> (My apologies if you get this twice, but the first time I sent it out there were some difficulties!)</x-tad-smaller>

After having had two wonderful and precious weeks with our children, we have finally found a home. Thank you Jesus! We are so thankful for each of you also that have been praying for us, and our need for a home base. We are currently in our 4th temporary home in the last 5 weeks, in a trailer on a small farm of some wonderful new friends we have made here also in Beulah, and will be here until the house is ready in about 3 weeks. I got the phone call confirming the deal two days ago, so at last we know where our home will be.

The curious thing is this first picture I took upon our arrival in Wales on May 11th - the wall on the right with the red square on it is around our front yard!

To London, to London, to buy a fat pig! :o)

Dear Friends & Prayers:

Well, in a little while we head off to London to pick up our "chillens" (plant in Welsh) and so are very excited as we have been anticipating this day almost since the day we first arrived nearly 3 months ago! What a blessing it will be to have them here with us. We hope for good weather, as the last 2 weeks have been mostly grey and rainy. Most folks think there are a few more weeks of summer weather due, so we are hoping along with everyone else, whose children are now our on summer vacations. Wales is crowded with holiday makers for these 6 weeks which started when we left "our" little cottage in Cilgerran 2 weeks ago.

We think we might be getting close to a decision on a house - so please say an extra prayer during these coming days. We are supposed to hear an answer by Saturday, and we hope the owners of this beautiful property will decide for us. We're going to pass by there on our way to London and make clear we are seriously interested! It is 10 miles from the chapel, on the other side near where the wedding was, and very near a Welsh speaking village. So maybe this is the place the Lord would have us be for the next few years!

On Monday we went to a beautiful wedding of some new friends, in a little country church, near where we stayed when we were in Welsh classes 2 weeks ago. They had lots of their old "hippie", spiritual seeker and alternative lifestyles friends along who camped out, and there were some great opportunities to share with many people. Then yesterday we ran into of three of these young ladies, one with whom we'd had very long conversations. We had just finished praying for her and others at the chapel, and then there they were in the local supermarket! They wound up camping out with us last night, and we had more chance to share God's love with them, answer some more of their questions, and even showed them our Wales video about why we're here. They are so hungry for Truth, and had never really heard the Gospel, in spite of being brought up in nominally church-going homes. So please pray for theme and the thousands of other young people who need Jesus desperately! We plan to keep in touch with them, and let them know they're welcome in our home anytime.

As always, thanks for your continued prayers and interest.

Dick & Gladys Funnell

P.S. We are still not fully covering our budget, and if you would like to lend us a hand financially, even in a small but regular way, it would be a significant blessing for us!
