In less than 2 months’ time we will be retired. We have been so blessed over these past 43 years – yes, we left for Zaire from Davis, California in May of 1978! University Covenant Church, UCC, in Davis nurtured us from 1975-1978, and when a young missionary from Imeloko, Zaire, came asking for an agriculturalist and a nurse, we felt led, called, blessed, joyful, and at peace, ready to sign up and go. They sent us out with their blessing, supported us and our projects graciously with care, prayer, and funds, and now they want to bless us again as we enter a new phase of life. UCC’s GO team is preparing a celebration the weekend of July 17-18, so if you are in or want to be in the vicinity of Davis, California, at 9 am, Saturday, July 17, please join us!! We are overwhelmed with the love lavished on us, and we give thanks to our God, for his provision and grace.
