The children here begin school in March and finish in December. Because of the virus, all schools have been closed. They do not own computers, so they have been on vacation all of this time.
A lot of people have come to the Lord because of this virus! We are doing our best to keep up with all of the new ones.
Everyone in the Cook's residence are healthy and doing well.
This is a big Birthday month for us!
