The tornado did not hit our house or the Peterson house we just sold. That’s praise the Lord times two: that the Peterson house sold, and that we are safe!! Yes, Rainsville, Alabama was hit hard, with over 30 people who died in the tornado from our town of 5,000 alone, and many more, even friends […]

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 […]
