The outpouring of love and sympathy shown to me and my family in response to Elizabeth’s death is greatly appreciated. I tried to read every comment and to notice every “like” that was sent our way. We received cards from long time friends and a few from some folks we are not sure we know.
I wanted to express our appreciation and to let you know that we are doing well. While we missed Elizabeth at our Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners, as well as all the time, we understand that we have been missing her for the past eight or nine years as she gradually declined.
Taking care of various legal and business details has been time consuming. Bringing back furniture from the memory center and tending to other things in the house has also occupied our time.
I am hopeful that shortly we can return to writing more blogs about the Bible lands and customs. The Lord knows that we have plenty of photos to share.
We continue to covet your prayers as we move forward in ways directed by the Lord.
Some of our readers might like to know that I am now identified with the Temple Terrace (FL) church of Christ along with many of my former students.
From time to time I am asked whether I will be leading tours again. I am not saying never, but I have no plans to do so at this time. Younger students of mine, in whom I have taken an interest, are continuing to do so.
I do have plan to continue my personal study trips to some places I haven’t gotten to yet and to check on new developments and keep my photos up to date.
