Our schedule has been quite full, and doesn't look like it will slow
down within the next few months. Our ministry at The Pines orphanage
in South Africa was the featured missions program at VBS for Slater
Baptist Church, and on July 16th we will begin our second VBS of the
summer, at Point of Grace Church in Waukee, IA. We also have 9
churches scheduled between now and the end of September.
When we had last sent out an update of our prefield ministry at the
beginning of May, we were at 15% monthly support committed. Since
then our committed support level has grown to about 45%. In addition
to the monthly support, we have had several generous one-time
donations, bringing our outfit and passage account to about $27,000.
Our outfit and passage goal is between $30,000 and $40,000, while our
monthly need is set at $4,000. Check our website, otoolsa.com, for

as we continue to progress toward life in Africa.
As always, please feel free to forward this on to anyone who may be
interested. If you would like to be removed from this list, or have a
different email address used, please let us know. Feel free to
contact us at anytime (or any reasonable time☺).
