Thanks from Dar el Awlad

"Once again Lebanon made News Headlines at the beginning of the summer. The date of my take over as Field Director was rapidly approaching.  Along with the rising summer temperature, I certainly felt the heat of my new job as I was expected to make tough decisions that could affect the lives of people who live thousands of miles away.
As I reflect on the last couple of months, I praise our amazing Lord for leading us through it all. We're so thankful to the Lord for keeping the political situation in control. I also admire the men and women on the Calvary Church team who were willing to step out in faith, not counting their lives more important than ours. Their presence put a smile on the children's faces and was a source of encouragement to us all. It's always great to have team members return  a second year and watch them build meaningful relationships with both staff and boys alike.
We appreciate each one who prays, or supports our ministry through donations but it is an extra blessing when you come visit and we get to know you personally. A great big thank you to Tim, "Mister" TC, Les and Lana, Josh and Jenn, Kim, and Julie! We are thankful to Calvary church for sharing the Boucher family with us. They're valued members of our team. 'Til next time:)"
