Wegners4theROC update:
The container is out of port. It's the blue one. Next stop Brazzaville.
Our family has been on the go!  We finished our touring in the Eastern part of the US with a week at Camp Nathanael in Eastern KY.  Then it was time to hit the road for another long trip.  We headed west, stopped by Colorado, then continued to Montana.

We arrived in Montana at the end of June, and we have been enjoying our time here.  Stephen has been working at the Blackfoot Community Hospital in Browning and Benefis Health Center in Great Falls.

We've been able to visit many churches in Montana during July, August, and the first part of September.

Our traveling and church visits will continue in September and October, with the following schedule:

September 21 & 22- First Alliance Church in Billings, MT.  This will be followed by the TLC conference.  Anna will speak Tuesday afternoon to the Great Commission women from First Alliance Church.

September 28 & 29- Lewistown CMA Church in Lewistown, MT

October 5 & 6 Plains Alliance Church in Plains, MT

October 13-18- Stephen and Anna will be at The American College of Emergency Physicians Scientific Assembly in Seattle.

October 19-20- Neighborhood Alliance Church in Riverton, WY

October 27- Cut Bank Community Bible Church in Cut Bank, MT

We would love to see you at any of these places if you are close!

Family News:
We have had a chance for many reunions with friends that we haven't see in years.  It's been bittersweet- fun to see everyone again and catch up, but hard to say good-bye after a short time.

Anna and the kids started school on August 26.  We've been taking school with us as we travel.   It makes things interesting!  For more details see our family blog.

Hospital News:
The transitions continue at the hospital.  Dr. Joseph Harvey and his family returned to Impfondo in June.  In July, Dr. Laura Foudy completed her service in Impfondo and returned to the US.

The container with the electrical supplies is finally out of port!  The next step is transportation to Brazzaville, and from there to Impfondo.  Please continue to pray for these much needed supplies to reach Impfondo.

There will be a team traveling from the US at the beginning of October.  Thank you to those of you who responded to the "help wanted" add.  Please keep the team in your prayers as they finalize preparations.

Future plans:
In November, we will return to the southeastern part of the United States to spend time with family and attend several conferences.

We plan to return to the Congo in February or March of 2014.  We have been making preparations towards that goal.

Thank you for all your support and prayers on our behalf.
