Current events

Our friends Arnold and Ada from Whittier, CA were visiting with us for a week.  What a great time of fun and fellowship with them.  One day we took an around the island tour and I got to hold a eagle.


We've been busy (especially Cindy) selling our things and packing.  We are going to be sending our books and many household goods in a shipping crate.  We are not shipping our furniture. We had to buy five new suitcases because of wear and water damage to our old ones. I have been doing a lot of job searching; I am hoping to pastor a church.  One of our friends asked if we are retiring.  The answer is definitely not.  We are coming back to be available to my parents should they need help and for our youngest son and his family, plus to be closer to the rest of our family.  Cindy is going to substitute teach or possibly get back in her old district full time.   We will be with Shepherd's Staff until the end of June at which time donations will be returned to the sender.  Pray we have jobs before then. 

Two weeks ago I had cataract surgery on my left eye and can now see much better. 

I will be meeting with Pastor Yai to discuss a team of people from thst church to take our place.

Teaching the Word in Thailand  

We finished studying Exodus on God's Word for Today radio program and are now going to answer questions from David Hoon, a Thai man living in Irvine is doing half of the transalation.  Podcasts of the programs are at and  listed also on iTunes.  Sunday mornings at church we are studying Ephesians, and Wednesday nights we are studying the book of John.  See
