I have been ill the last few days with a fever and alot of pain in all my joints and holes, eyes, ears, mouth, nose, etc. and a severe headache. It has lasted since very late Saturday night until present, however today about one I started to get some relief. This evening I am in some pain and have a slight headache, but I think it is passing. Thank you to all who received word and prayed and to those that did not hear, I did not want to worry you. So far I am the only one with any symptoms so you can pray that it stays that way, I can say it is nothing nice. Aside from this our health has been rather good, we are all in good health and spirits, as we pray you are when this letter finds you.
This past Saturday Pastor Eric, Joey, and I were invited to a Karen wedding by our friend Peter. The services were held in a nearby village about 50 kilometers away. I think we arrived late, as it was well under way, but it was neat to be there anyway. After the wedding we hung out for a while eating and fellowshipping before returning home.
The Friday Bible study is a continued blessing. This past Friday there were about ten young people in attendance, they were all from Mylongyee Learning Center. They said they enjoyed the time together and would return again next Friday. Pastor Eric taught Matthew 5:6 Blessed are those that hunger and thirst for righteousness for they shall be filled. It is neat to see the Word pricks the heart. I believe it will now be our Saturday Bible study to accommodate Sarah's teaching schedule. Please, please remember this in your prayers.
Below are some photos of the last week.

A Psalm. A Song At the Dedication of the House of David.
I will extol You, O Lord, for You have lifted me up, And have not let my foes rejoice over me. O Lord my God, I cried out to You, And You healed me. O Lord, You brought my soul up from the grave; You have kept me alive, that I should not go down to the pit. Sing praise to the Lord, you saints of His, And give thanks at the remembrance of His holy name. For His anger is but for a moment, His favor is for life; Weeping may endure for a night, But joy comes in the morning. Now in my prosperity I said, “I shall never be moved.” Lord, by Your favor You have made my mountain stand strong; You hid Your face, and I was troubled. I cried out to You, O Lord; And to the Lord I made supplication: “What profit is there in my blood, When I go down to the pit? Will the dust praise You? Will it declare Your truth? Hear, O Lord, and have mercy on me; Lord, be my helper! You have turned for me my mourning into dancing; You have put off my sackcloth and clothed me with gladness, To the end that my glory may sing praise to You and not be silent.O Lord my God, I will give thanks to You forever.
