2017 has been amazing year. We made an emergency return to the USA, and because God is in control, he knew we needed to be there because within a few weeks, Stephen’s father went to be with the Lord, and we were able to be with him. Then a month later, Ruth had her successful surgery. We came back to Asia and were able to be with Emmanuel Baptist Fellowship as they celebrated their 40th anniversary. While back in the states for two months, we visited three of our supporting churches that we had some seen for a long time. We also got to be with our fourth daughter, Lydia, as she had her 30th birthday. Wow, is it possible we really have four daughters over 30, but we are so young!! The next week was Thanksgiving, when we were blessed to be with three of our daughters and six of our grandchildren. Our third daughter also had baby #6 during the last week of November. We'll see that new grand baby next year.
Then we returned to Asia for the third time, and that is where we are presently, remembering the birth of our Saviour with our church family, Emmanuel Baptist Fellowship. May the Lord bless you as well during this Christmas season.
