10, 9, 8, 7 … « Dix, neuf, huit, sept, … » I find my days filled with editing, proof-reading and multiple minute details, as the countdown for preparing these grade one Bible lessons for Haiti is upon us. Their schools start October 3rd, and all of the final checking hasn’t been completed yet. […]
I’m home alone! Martha flew out to California, to visit our oldest son Aaron, Avé, and our three grandchildren (ages 5, 3 & just-turned 2). And I’m at home working on the Haiti Bible lessons for grade one. We are a bit behind schedule right now on these lessons, since working on a translation from long […]
It’s a girl! Naomi Violet Miller was born June 9th, at 1:38am. Mother (Heidi) and baby are doing great… so are Opa and Nana. 🙂 We have enjoyed being able to come to Idaho to wait for this little one with Mark, Heidi and their family. You see, waiting is one of the lessons […]
You can join us: every day, all day! Because JOY doesn’t depend on our circumstances. Martha and I are reading a 90-day challenge about this joy that is ours, for the taking. (See Champagne for the Soul, by Mike Mason.) So when the new potential buyers found everything they needed in our house (wheelchair […]
When God says “Go!” you better be ready! We put our house up for sale on a Thursday, and by Friday evening we had signed a contract with a potential buyer – who is working on a closing date before the end of October. Actually, we would like to “leave Dodge” (like they […]
Don’t you just love moving? Martha and I have been awed as we watch God line up our next mission assignment. You remember from our previous memos that I started editing a Bible curriculum for grade one for the Haiti Baptist Mission last summer. And now this summer, as I led a couple more […]
Rejoicing in Heaven! Martha’s mom, Abbie Peterson, went to be with the Lord yesterday afternoon. She had a brain-bleed stroke and was in a hospital in Chattanooga, TN for 8 days before being released to come home under hospice care this past Tuesday, July 6th. She was only home 48 hours, with no signs […]
Join us in praising the Lord for how He is answering! The Glaro leaders gave their consent and are preparing for missionaries... Verne & Denny have moved back into the Palaka village... Loron church having Bible teaching programs going for about 150 children... I am preparing orientation sessions, and a devotional guide, for [going to Haiti next month.]...
This Easter missionaries are traveling (and walking the last 2 hours) to ask the village elders for permission to return to a Glaro village where missionaries had to evacuate in 1990. Denny is translating the Book of Matthew into the Palaka language, and she's almost up to the Easter story. I will be taking a team of 16 or so volunteers from our local church to Haiti - to do relief work.
The earthquake hit Haiti just days after we wrote you our prayer requests last month. We had been praying about me (Theo) returning to Haiti this June, as a follow-up trip from last summer. But now we see an even greater urgency in preparing to go help...
