Newsletter, June 2008

After much kicking and screaming, I finally put together a newsletter for us to mail – in one form or another – to our family, friends, and supporters. Part of the reason for starting this site is so that we can log the little anecdotes and announcements that we typically put into these letters, and then collect them into a single letter to mail. Maybe it’ll be easier.

In this letter, I write about my new role in IT, a few interesting experiences at work, my helping to build our Helpdesk system, and about this website. I hope you don’t find it incredibly dull. Would it help if I told you there were pictures of the boys?

June 2008: A Liddle Good News

Saying goodbye to friends … for now

A few hours ago, we said goodbye to some folks who have been good friends for the past three and a half years. Loren and Kensey Ledebuhr and their two children are on the last leg of a journey that’s going to take them away from Dallas to serve Wycliffe in Papua New Guinea. Our kids have played together and learned together, and they probably don’t understand what tonight’s goodbye meant. The four of us adults have enjoyed a good friendship that spanned life at the office and in the home, and you just hate to give up something like that.

On the other hand, God desires to use His children wherever they are willing to go. Loren and Kensey’s skills will be put to good use in PNG, and I won’t grudge the Lord having and using them there instead of here. Really.

“The LORD bless you
and keep you;

the LORD make his face shine upon you
and be gracious to you;

the LORD turn his face toward you
and give you peace.” (Numbers 6:24-26 NIV)
