CHICAGO, IL (March 13, 2006) – Hardly a week goes by that we do not receive a few comments from readers on stories published as part of the Covenant online news report.

We will share from time to time some of those responses generated through the “comments” link attached to each published story. This kind of feedback is very helpful to our Covenant News Service staff as we seek to identify and publish stories of great interest to a broad spectrum of online readers of this report.

Following are comments relating to recently published stories, edited in some cases for length. To read a particular story of interest, click on the headline.

CEUM President Updates Vision for Congo

Clara and Bob Sharpless of Palo Alto, CA, write: News of Mossai’s experience in Chicago was great. We have been his hosts for over a month in Califormia and we believe him to be one of the best guests we have ever had. We look forward to his return next week and hearing more.

Memorial Service Planned for Roy Sveiven

Reynold Samundsen of Batavia, IL, writes: Betty and I send our deepest sympathy Lyla and family. We remember them from their ministry in Edmonton, Alberta.

Covenanter Featured in Sports Illustrated

Marilyn E. Moore of Somerville, MA, writes: How wonderful that Peter Brown has been recognized nationally – perhaps we will get to see him in the Summer Olympics. It is so encouraging that our Covenanters are featured nationally and internationally (Kathy and Calla Holmgren, Dr. Roger Thorpe and others). The churches are not the ones recognized, but rather our dear Lord – in other folks shoes doing his work. May we continue to hear of other young and older folks who serve the Lord in wonderful ways and keep a good attitude in doing so.

Occasionally we receive comments about stories published some time ago. Most often, readers come across them while topically perusing search engines or when visiting the online Covenant News Archive maintained by Covenant News Service. We appreciate reader comments at any time about any story that has appeared as part of our online Covenant news report.

World Mission Impact Is Focus of New Display

Judy Peraino of Mount Vernon, WA, writes: Peter Matson was my great uncle. My grandfather was his brother. I have been in Chicago several times, but have had trouble finding your museum. I think my mother sent several items of Peter’s to you after both his daughters had passed away. The Mattsons (we added a ‘t’) are having a family reunion this summer so I will print a copy of this page to have on display.

She’s the Official Keeper of Covenant History

Debby Wadham of Lima, OH, writes: My great-grandfather, Savantee (not sure of spelling) Lundeen, was one of the 65 founding members – he was the last one alive. He passed away a few days before the Jubilee. If anyone has any information or a picture of him, I would love to receive it.
