|"Tie your shoes and pray for the Hughes"|
We went back to the States at the end of July and spent five weeks there. The primary reason for our visit was to be with Jacob’s parents as they celebrated their 50th anniversary. We are both privileged to have parents who love our Savior. While back, we were able to spend time with family and make lasting memories.

The time back in the States allowed us to attend our missions agency’s training week. Chapel messages challenged our hearts, classes provided support and insight and interaction with other missionaries uplifted us. Families in a supporting church kindly housed us and provided a vehicle for our use while in Ohio.
Since we were not able to obtain the required permission for our outreach to families, we will save that idea for next summer. Our fall plans include starting a kids’ Bible club and English lessons, expanding the Sunday evening Bible study to include more people and searching for a meeting place to rent.
Twice David and I have chatted with “A.” He has expressed interest in coming to a service. Last Thursday was the first time “L” visited the Bible study. She gave testimony of salvation and told us she is glad we are here. David and I gave “G” a ride back into Soroca. Nine years ago he heard the Gospel at a Christian camp- the same camp where David worked that summer. We hope he will talk with us more. Either right now or sometime this week, would you take time to pray specifically for these individuals and for us as we seek to minister to them?
In His service,
Jacob and Viola Hughes
