“All the Christmas presents in the world are worth nothing without the presence of Christ." -David Jeremiah
We trust that this Christmas season, Christ will live in your heart in a greater measure than ever before.
Some 2017 Highlights
January - Robert accompanied Verna to the Linguistic Society of America's annual meeting in Austin, Texas, where Verna demo-ed the Services her unit provides. May - Robert completed An Exegetical Summary of Acts, Volume One and sent it off for publication. August - We traveled to Indiana and Manitoba to visit family and financial supporters. September - Verna traveled to Oregon to attend an SIL Linguistic conference where she reported on the status/progress of Dictionary & Lexicography Services. October - Friends made it financially possible for us to go to Israel with our Church. December - Moving news - see below.
Robert continues to co-author and edit An Exegetical Summary of Acts, Volume Two. He is currently in chapter 20.
In October, Beth Bryson joined Verna's team in Dictionary & Lexicography Services as a Lexical Data Conversion Specialist. Beth brings a wealth of technical information and skill to the team. Verna now has six people working for her.
For some time, we have considered living closer to our son, Jason and his family, who live in Greenville, TX. Many factors came together to show us that now was the right time to make the move. With Jason and Anna's help, the Lord has enabled us to buy a house around 15 minutes from their place. We plan to move in the middle of January.
Since we work from home, living in Greenville won't change the way we do our work. In this day of the Internet, all our work happens on the computer, including our meetings. Many Wycliffe personnel do their work distributed around the world in various places.
There are still a few days left to complete
your 2017 giving before the New Year.
Thank you for your friendship, your prayers, and your financial support. Without you on our team, we would not be able to do the work Father God has called us to. We pray for you daily. May Father God continue to prosper you and keep you in health and may all your prayers be answered.
