Hughes News #74

"Tie your shoes and pray for the Hughes"

Dear Friends,
I’m long overdue in getting a prayer letter written.  The last time we sent a prayer letter, we were about to begin furlough.  Now, we are nearing its end.  The timing cornerstone to this furlough was Viola’s sister’s wedding, which we were able to attend last week.  Leading up to that event we visited a large percentage of our supporting churches and a handful of new ministries, spent time with family, and stayed with a number of friends along the way.  The predominant thought for me at each stop has been, “I wish we had just a little more time here.”  The time back has been a blessing to us. 
We are encouraged with what we hear from Soroca.  Attendance to both the Sunday morning service and Sunday evening Bible study has been up.  A good number of visitors have come in the few months we have been gone.  David taught a family conference in May that was well received by those who came.  Please continue to pray for our co-workers as they continue ministering in our absence.
Lord-willing, we will be heading back to Moldova the first part of July.  We will have a few days to settle in before beginning VBS.  As we did in previous years, we will repeat the program in a second location three weeks later.  Would you pray with us that we would be able to further influence for Christ the children that have come in the past and that the Lord would bring new kids to hear His Word? 
In His service,
Jacob and Viola Hughes
