From landscap- ing, fixing the car park, washing win- dows, and cleaning toilets; everyone did a great job and worked joyfully. What a great group!

OM Ireland Lacken House Phone: +353 90 662 3964 WWW.OM.ORG Home phone: +353 90 /IE/EN Rahara Co Roscommon 662 4438 Ireland E-mail: [email protected] [email protected] I wanted to say thank you so much for all your prayers and love and finance you give. I also wanted to take this time to catch you up on our family. Aaron has finished with his exams and has to wait till mid August for the results. He hopes to attend Athlone Institue of Technology doing an Animation course starting this September. In the meantime he needs a job to pay for transport for the school (costs about €50/week) and to cover costs for him to attend TeenStreet (he needs about €300 for his ticket & train). By the way, if any of you want to support Aaron for his TeenStreet, you can send a cheque to OM Ireland at the address above & designate it is for Aaron DelPrado’s TeenStreet payment. Etienne also needs a job to pay for his room and board for college in January. He hopes to return to Waterford and continue the Horticulture course. We would appreciate prayers for both of them as jobs are very hard to get here in Rural Ireland. Brenda recently found out she has high cholesterol & blood pressure and has just started medication for it. Please pray she can lose weight to help get her blood pressure under control. Nap is doing well and is having a Birthday next week. He doesn’t seem almost 62! Overall we are feeling thankful for what God is doing and are trusting Him for our needs. We serve a great God!
