Trip to the States

Jerry Neuman on June 7, 2018

THREE SEMINARS IN ONE    ABWE hosted an event for international theological educators that included three seminars during one week. I felt privileged to be invited and paid the cost in time as well as finances.

2017 Transitions and Learning

Lynda Neuman on January 1, 2018

  Transition: first six months of 2017    Lesson:  need for flexibility and trust in God’s plan Plan A: travel to US Jan. 22, staying with our oldest son, giving support and encouragement; report to supporting churches and seek to raise support level; spend time with Lynda’s dad, knowing that at 95 he must not have much more time with us. Plan B: Lynda goes Jan 12 to see her quickly failing father. She and Nathan spend his last days by his side and say goodbye three days later. Seeing once again how God gives strength and nurtures hope in...
