Off the monitor!

Hey! We forgot to tell you that Noah has been off his monitor for almost a month now! Praise the Lord! Thank you for all your prayers for him--we believe God is healing him from his reflux. We continue to ask for your prayers in raising him to be a godly young man.
Praise our God! --Ben & Becky.

Here Ben is redoing about 12 feet of our flooring--it was rotten! The floor, that is, the only rotten part about the work was when we had to put the insulation in! ARGH! Oh, then I (Ben) accidentally kicked the pipe that brings water to the house. So we went last night without water--since Lowe's closes after 9pm when I finished all this work. All in all, that was the only mess-up! Pretty good for a first-timer! Posted by Picasa

Trip to Portugal

Dear friends,
This June, I (Ben) have the opportunity to go to Portugal for a short-term missions trip. What will I be doing? Along with 13 other adults and 5 teenagers from our church, we will be:

· Painting at a retreat center for Dan Mosely, who is an American TEAM missionary in Portugal;

· Doing landscaping/maintenance work at the center;

· Spending time developing relationships with the local Portuguese every afternoon/evening.

I have been put in charge of teaching basic Portuguese to our group and will be preaching the Sunday we are there in Portugal. The dates of the trips are from June 19th to July 1st, so I won’t be gone from Becky and Noah for too long.

Would you commit to praying for this trip and all the people involved? Please take a minute right now to pray that all the work done will bring glory to God and be a witness to the Portuguese we interact with. Pray also that Becky and Noah will be safe while I am away. If you can, please let me know if you are willing to partner in prayer with me. I am excited to be involved and to see peoples lives changed!

Financially this trip will cost approximately $1300. If you are interested in helping please send your tax-deductible donation to SAE Church (below) with a sticky note attached to it saying: "Ben Bacheller's Portugal trip" to:

Saint Andrews Evangelical Church
2609 Seminole Rd.
Columbia, SC 29210
Thank you so much
for your prayers and support.

In Christ,

Ben Bacheller.
