I feel I owe an apology to all those who visit our Timothy House blog. I have not been updating it as I should. As you know, I (Bob) have been working full time on the Anvoy Project. So here is a long overdue update!
TH Boys Head Back to School
Domingo, Angel and Juan went to live with their older sister this summer. So that leaves just 7 boys at Timothy House. I say “just” because it seems like so few compared to the 26 that we had in the past. But we are very content as we trust the Lord is directing our path and allowing us to provide more individual attention to these precious youth. They are growing so fast!
The twins, Jose and Ramiro, Freddy and Roberto are all 12 years old and heading to junior high school in town for their first year. It is an exciting transition for them. Please pray that God will give them wisdom to learn what is good and true, and reject the many deceptive, secular ideas that are also taught. Salvador (11), Victor (9), and Jesus (8) are going to the local elementary school. All of these boys are well behaved and happy. We praise God for His goodness, merciful protection, and grace as we strive to raise them up to be good men, faithful husbands and responsible fathers.
The “house church” at Timothy House continues to be blessed with many children and a few adults from the neighborhood attending regularly. The enthusiastic singing of the youth, participation in reading, commenting, and special performances warms our hearts and glorifies our Creator who made all this possible!
Anvoy Academy Update
We launched the first version of Anvoy Academy in July and have been making improvements ever since. The 1st version was a “beta test,” which means it was more of a prototype than the “real thing.” We thank the Lord that everything has been going well, and more or less as we hoped, except for it all taking longer than we would like. But we are looking forward to a major milestone in mid september, which will be the 2nd release - the “fully functional education and publishing platform!”
We will be rolling all the marketing, videos, and explanations out, Lord willing, by the end of September, at which time you will be able to learn all about Anvoy! Please pray that the Lord will continue to lead this project and that it will lift His name up in the nations.
The Huber Summer Trip
We are thankful for safe travels this summer when we headed back to Francesville. We have the best friends and family in the world! Of course the highlight was Salome’s baptism! Chloe is now living in West Lafayette and going to Ivy Tech. Special thanks to John and Claudia for filling in for us a few days at TH while we were gone!
In August, we took the TH gang to the beach in Bahia Kino. We were able to stop and see Julio (14) who is now at an orphanage in Hermosillo.
Thank you for your love and faithful prayers!
