January 2018December 30 was our 28th wedding anniversary and Paula’s 7th cancer-versary, seven years since Paula’s doctor found a cancerous lump in her left breast. We’re thankful that, after her more recent second cancer in 2016 (this time in her right breast), Paula is now through treatment, with a status of NED (No Evidence of Disease)!
2017 was a big year for New Tribes Mission, with the move to our new six story headquarters down the street (the previous HQ building has since been sold) as well as a new name (now Ethnos360).
We finished the year off with a week long trip to Arizona, to spend some time with Paula’s sisters and their families, and had opportunity as well to visit a supporting church and several friends in the area.
Nicholas is continuing to work full-time at Universal Studios Islands of Adventure, renting a nearby condo with a couple other roommates.
Joy received her AA degree in May and is now embarking on an intensive two year program to concurrently receive her ASN (from SSC) and BSN (from UCF) Nursing degrees.
Meanwhile, Hannah has one semester left to complete her AA degree at Seminole State, and then plans to work toward a BS in Secondary Math Education - either at UCF or Daytona State.
Here are some of our praise and prayer requests for 2018:
