Burgan Update from Pittsburgh

Schools are back in session here in Pennsylvania, folks are returning to their normal routines and we are preparing for a Jubilee Celebration.

The last two months have been spent working with my Dad, Mom and the church here to help get all things in order - corporately, legally, financially and spiritually - for whatever the Lord has next. We are planning a week of special meetings September 13-17 which will include an old fashioned, southern "Homecoming" on that Saturday where we are inviting as many former church members and visitors for a time of fellowship, renewing relationships and catching up on what the Lord has been doing since we last saw them.

Sunday afternoon, we are planning a service to honor my folks for their 20 years of service here, inviting dignitaries from all over to participate.

We would appreciate your prayers regarding these meetings and all the preparations necessary!

Regarding Hope House, the Lord has provided a number of opportunities for us to share the vision with individuals and with churches. We have one couple and several adult singles currently considering coming to Mexico to join our team. Be praying for them and that those others whom the Lord is calling will respond!

By the way, I neglected to mention that, with the establishment of the corporation in Arizona, we can now receive gifts, offerings and donations directly. Simply mail them to our Yuma address with any check made out to Hope House International. All gifts are tax deductible. Thanks, again, to all of you who have chosen to invest in the work that God is doing in and through us!

So far, it looks like we will be heading to Myrtle Beach the last week of September, then onto Fort Lauderdale, FL, Chattanooga and Memphis, TN and finally home to Mexico by the end of October. We will keep you posted as to actual dates as the time nears. If we are heading to your neck of the woods, let us know because we'd love to have the chance to chat!
