|"Tie your shoes and pray for the Hughes"|
A month ago today we moved to Soroca. We are comfortably settled into our apartment other than the occasional problem that accompanies any home. Our mailing address is the following:

Using the order we have listed will give letters the best chance to make it to our mailbox.
Much of our time the last couple of weeks has been spent working with our coworkers on their home. That should continue throughout August as our projects include the septic system, the Styrofoam insulation on the outside of the house and the rooms on the first floor. As you think of us, we ask that you would pray for wisdom. First, David and Stephanie need the Lord’s direction as they make decisions about the house. Second, we inexperienced construction workers need wisdom as we undertake new tasks and learn new skills.
Ministry to this point has consisted of our two families meeting together on Sundays and a pair of Bible studies. A couple of weeks ago I began joining David for a Bible study he is leading with a neighbor “N” and her adult daughter “S.” I will be leading the other Bible study with a lady “G” but we have struggled to find a consistent day when we can visit her. The work on the house is important for ministry because we have already had two people express interest in joining us on Sundays. Since we are planning to begin the church plant in the Grosses home, further progress on the house will give sufficient space for others to come.
In His service,
Jacob and Viola Hughes
