How quickly our time has passed as while we were on furlough. During our eight months home we spent time traveling all over visiting our family and friends from the midwest to the east coast. Pictured here is Gertrude’s brother Clarence with his fiancee, Cheryl. This was just a few days before we left for Papua New Guinea (PNG)
When we were not traveling Gertrude was spending time to care for her mother in Longview. I spent my time taking a couple of classes related to Bible translation at the Graduate Institute of Applied Linguistics.
We rejoice that as we were ready to depart PNG for the funds that we needed to return to had been pledged.
