While areas around us are now getting rain, we are still lagging behind. As the photo below shows, clouds are regularly forming above us, but have yet to pour forth the desired moisture.
Hence, our prayers for rain continue and hope springs eternal.
The brethren are doing well and keeping healthy. Our current age range is 24 to 94. We strive to form a family of young, old and in between.
At this time many outdoor projects, such as tending gardens and grounds and maintenance of buildings, are under way.
Greetings and prayers for all.
Abbot Christian and the monks
