Surgery tomorrow

Thanks to all who have been praying for Mom and for my family as we wait. Surgery is scheduled for tomorrow.

For a season, it seems best to not post specific updates here. I'll be back with ministry and personal updates in the future. For information about this part of our journey, please message me with an email address so I might pass on information to you by email rather than by broadcast here. Or, just keep praying, as we can be thankful that God knows our needs and will use your prayers, even without specific details. Thanks for your understanding!

Back to Indiana!?!

Hello from Florida! It was an honor to be a part of Faith's Global Impact Conference. I enjoyed connecting with many of you and sharing about what God is doing in Bible translation. As a pleasant surprise for me, I will be back in Indiana, March 19 - April 4.

The unexpected part is that Mom did not return to Florida with me. As a result of last week's CT scan, she now has a surgical consult on March 21. Thanks so much for your prayers. She is trusting God and doing ok in the waiting. We are thankful.

One prayer request we have is that the surgery be scheduled very soon after the consult, so that I might be able to help out post-surgery. (I am very grateful for all the family's oneness-of-mind in being available to help out!) Also, please pray for clarity as I sort through the tasks here next week, so that all that can't be done "remotely" gets accomplished. Thank you for your faithful prayers and encouragements.

Global Impact Conference

Hello from Indy! I am grateful to be a part of Faith Church's Global Impact Conference this weekend. It was such a joy to see a number of you last night at Terry & Jane's home meeting. My heart was so encouraged as we spent time catching up and interacting. Thanks again for your time last night.

Below is a list of the events that remain for the conference. If you are in Indy but not a part of Faith Church, feel free to join us for one or more of the events. (RSVPs are helpful, but not required.) I look forward to seeing many of you there!

On a personal note, Mom has a CT scan scheduled for this morning. We'd appreciate your prayers for God's guidance in figuring out what is going on with some unexplained pain she is experiencing. Thanks much.
