Thank you ever
so much for your support of our ministry. It is such a blessing
and help to us at this time. Thank you so very much for praying
for us, too. We know the Lord is answering prayer in many ways,
for which we are grateful.
Our son, Tim,
was just here since last month, from July 12 through July 16,
when he flew back to Washington, D.C. We had a lovely visit
with him. That was the only weekend he could get off because of
his new job. So we celebrated his birthday (from June), and our
wedding anniversary (last month) a little early. We did have a
great time going to Sea World. The last time that John and I
were there was when the children were smaller! Also, I did
chaperone classes when the younger ones were still in elementary
school! The younger ones, Jeffrey and David, are now 23 and
21! Sarah and Kayla came with us as well. Her husband wasnt
able to be with us that day, due to work.
About 1-1/2 weeks
ago, our new co-worker came down from Michigan with a trailer.
He is going to be our new “back-up” in the Medical Plan Office.
His family followed by plane on Monday night, so we had all of
them over for a “welcome supper” last evening. They have six
children, five of whom are moving with them to Florida! We are
indeed happy to have someone (especially the father) coming to
help and learn our work enough so that we arent the only ones
who know the Medical Plan, so to speak. We not only have
Medical Insurance, but Evacuation Insurance for our
missionaries; Life Insurance; Accident Insurance; and now even
Student Accident Insurance for the NTM Schools as well.
My uncle was
very ill in Wisconsin, and he died on July 20. We were not able
to go at that time. Thank you for praying for my aunt, who is
my Dads only living sister now. There were 8 siblings in Dads
family. Again, thank you for praying for all of our family.
We had a lovely
25th wedding anniversary. Thank you so much for
being part of our lives and ministry during these precious
years, and forward!
Thank you again
so very much for your partnership with us. May the Lord bless
and keep you too. We are praying for you as well.
