Dear Friends and Family; It is that time again to update you on the happenings of our lives and ministry here in Asia Pacific. We are racing full-steam ahead toward the day we finally move into the village! Greg just finished preparing Acts chapters 1-13 for a translation check scheduled in September. Getting Bible passages […]
Dear Friends and Family; It has been another long stretch between emails, and I apologize. Greg and I have both been going full steam ahead since early March when Greg began teaching a translation class for 2 hours each day at our local missions training school. The preparation and teaching of that class, plus keeping […]
This coming week is finally the week of our team meetings. We asked in a previous prayer letter for you to pray for our decision about whether the whole family would be able to travel to the meetings or if only Greg would go. I m happy to report that the Lord worked out the details just fine. One of our team families needed to come here for some medical care, so that put 4 of our families here, and just one in the tribe, so we all pitched in to bring that family here. It works out well for us because I can continue teaching in the mornings.
Greeting from Indonesia, where we are enjoying a warm, rainy, tropical Christmas. We occasionally dream of a white Christmas, but then we remember the lost mittens, the 45 minutes of getting five children bundled up before going outside, and the muddy footprints on the carpet when we have to turn right back around and undo it all :-) In Actuality it is NOT the WHITE we are missing as much as we are missing YOU, our loved ones. Maybe next year you can plan to head over here and visit us to find out what a tropical Christmas is all about . . .but don't forget your sunglasses and flip flops!
Dear Friends and Family; Greg made it home late the day before yesterday. He surprised us by flying home 3 days early, since the boat he was going to travel home on was put in dry dock. We were all thrilled to see him, but Caleb was BEYOND thrilled, and followed him around all day […]
I intended to write an update a few weeks ago, letting you know that we made it home safely from our trip to get our Visa's renewed. Well, we did make it home safely, and actually a trip that I was dreading turned out to be just what our family needed after a busy summer of painting our house and keeping up with our other responsibilities!
It hasn't been too long since our last update, but we have some new developments and would love your prayers for us during the next couple of weeks.
Dear Friends and Family; Wow, when I look back to the last time we sent out an update . . . where does the time go? Whatever happened to the lazy days of Summer? We have been going at breakneck speed since we wrapped up classes at the beginning of this month. First of all […]
Dear Friends and Family; Greetings from sunny HOT Indonesia. We can hardly believe we have been back for over a year now! We are really feeling comfortable in our little house. I was encouraged the other day when we walked outside very early for our morning walk and Gracie took a deep breath of the […]
It has been a little while since our last update, 6 weeks, and life has been moving along at a steady and busy pace.
