Rachel doing well, Joshua quarantined with Covid-19
I trust you are doing well and staying safe.
You should have received an update newsletter from us in the last month. It is also available on this side for reading online.
We are doing okay here in Brownsville, albeit Lydia especially going stir-crazy and trying to offload part of it onto her family members. Rachel was proclaimed fully cleared from her broken leg surgery and okay for all activities. We are still trying to sort out a billing tracking problems at the insurance company where they have not credited expenses towards our deductible so we are still being charged for medical service although we have spent more than our deductible. Please pray they resolve this soon. We have also reopened gifts towards our medical expenses through TWR as Rachel’s mishap totally depleted out medical reserve fund.
Some more bad news from Joshua. A couple of days ago he was diagnosed with CoViD-19, and is now in 14-days quarantine. He lives in a rehabilitation care facility and there is a lot of exposure there. He was actually tested more than a week ago and is still asymptomatic. He is concerned for the security of his possessions left in his regular room like his computer etc. He did not even get to bring his toothbrush and clothes to quarantine, let alone his PC with all his data. He has had stuff stolen from his room before so is justifiably concerned.Please pray fis complete and speedy recivery.
Summer plans are mostly centered on staying home. I am in a high-risk category for Coronavirus infection, so will probably avoid much outside activity at least another 3 months. We may take a drive to see my brother in Utah come July-August but will wait and see. Still looking for a used affordable pop-up camper that is light enough to tow with our Traverse. Hotels are so expensive that camping is becoming the better option, especially as we look at extended trips for support raising.
Work is going well albeit slowly. My monitor receiver project is becoming heat-limited now due to the summer heat, with temperature-humidity indexes in the garage over 130 degrees quite often. I can work out there for maybe an hour before I have to come back into the house to cool down. Still waiting for critical parts to arrive from China for about half the systems. Maris is doing well with her data-privacy project assignments, and has been able to start certification classes from the software provider.
TWR responses show a threefold increase in online access and listenership around the world. The Lord has uniquely positioned and is using TWR to reach the world in this special time. An interview with TWR’s president Lauren Libby was recently posted on You Tube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FnrLK9VdcOE .
Blessings to you all.
