A Note from Talitha

Written by: The Bridge on Monday, April 24th, 2006

As mentioned in Edward's report, over the past few years, factions "seitne" have developed here in Palmgrove. Having only been here less than two weeks, we haven't really felt it, but in small ways we've noticed it. Since the first day we arrived, my dad and Paul Vetter have been having meeting after meeting with people, and here and there they have been telling us a snippet or two of what the problems are that people have. We won't get into that, because a lot of it is just plain gossip. But anyways, it's been a long hard battle.

We've had ....

Hi, all you younger generation,

Thanks for the encouraging comments that you are posting for us, here in this far away part of the world. We need your prayers, and we need to hear and know that despite the bleak picture you hear about, you are standing behind us. Yes, it is a daily struggle to keep Palmgrove going with the basic necessities like food, drinking water, toilets that flush and showers that run etc. One must however realize, that this is a third world country, and half of our world lives with this as standard. Therefore as Christ....

For The Love Of Flowers!

I started writing this post to give everybody an idea of....

Greetings from Paul and Clara!

April 16, 2oo6 ~ To all our dear ones at home in Silverwinds. We greet you all from Palmgrove! So far we are all doing well, have plenty to eat, a nice clean bed, and God's great love and protection. We get up every morning to go to breakfast, even though it is different from what we're used to, the main thing is that we're together. We also help with washing dishes. After that, we go about with what we would normally do at home, clean or sweep the floors, do our laundry, or do a bit of writing in our rooms. Management starts here in the house,....

Update on Palmgrove

First of all, I want to say thank you to all who are leaving comments. I download the pages to USB, then take them back home so that the rest of us can read them on the laptop. It's a pleasant surprise to see the variety of people who are responding, and it also gives me an idea as to what to post the next time.

The brothers and sisters here in Palmgrove are very similar to what we have back in North America. Some are genuine, and are giving their best to keep this place going, but there are also others, who's motives seem questionable. As I....
