First of all, we want to thank you for stopping by, and a special thanks to those of you who pray for us or help support our ministry with New Tribes Mission.
2007 has been a busy year for us. Here is a brief list of some of our 2007 highlights:
January - I traveled to Senegal, Africa, with co-worker, Virgil Wuthrich, to help install our NTM Accounting & Administrative (NTMAA) system and provide
training for the supply buyer and their finance office.
March - I traveled to Michigan to help with some training at our New Tribes Bible Institute bookstore and to be part of the annual missions conference at
Skiff Lake Bible Church.
May - Paula and I had a special 10 day vacation in Hawaii, celebrating our fifteenth wedding anniversary (which was actually in 2004) and also Paula's great
progress with her diet and exercise program. (She's lost over 100 lbs!)
June - I traveled with co-worker, Nathan Whatley, to our NTM Canada headquarters in Durham, Ontario to help their finance office transition to our NTMAA
system. While in Canada we also had the opportunity to spend Canadian Thanksgiving weekend with a family at their cottage on Lake Huron.
July - We found a great deal on eBay (a 2 bedroom timeshare for a week for $96 total) and were able to take a week long family vacation in Daytona Beach.
September - We traveled to Jacksonville to visit friends and to share about our ministry with a supporting church there.
September 18 - After 2.5 years, Nicholas has his braces removed from his teeth.
November - We were able to take a 4 day mini-vacation (again courtesy of a good deal on eBay) to Daytona Beach. We were able to spend some time with my mom
& stepdad and then join my sister and her family for Thanksgiving.
December - I'm planning to travel to our Missionary Training Center in Camdenton, Missouri for a week to provide further NTMAA training for their finance
office and Tech Center.
