Greetings to all!

 

It is so exciting to see the progress of the Women’s Center – pictured below. As I mentioned to Bishop Todd, his great excitement may have been building St Patrick’s Cathedral, but I get really excited about the building of the Women’s Center. God is on the move and it is great to be a part of it!

 

Please join us in praying that God will provide the remaining $14,000 to complete the project.

 

God bless, Patsy+

Hi everyone,

We are so pleased to tell you that the team has made it to the summit, and they have already started to descend to the camp. By now they have probably already made it to the descending camp. The team has been fueled by the Lord and have really come together as a team to encourage others in SAMS Global Vision. We can’t wait to hear more from them! We praise God for a successful ascent and what is to come for SAMS. Expect to hear from them yourselves soon if you haven’t already.

Hi Everyone,
The team has completed day 3 of the climb. They climbed about 4-5 hours from 11,450’ to a beautiful overnight camp which is at the base of a lava flow. Everyone is safe and healthy! They are at 13,580’. Here are some pictures from Guy Benton taken early today.
