Walk don’t run!

Dear Friends, Countrymen, Prayer Partners and Motorcyclests

Six weeks ago my motorcycle had an accident. Unfortunately Judy and I were on it at the time, fortunately  it was while passing through a thick patch of sand so the impact was minimal. Thankfully Judy was unharmed. I think I was her airbag. I have a torn left knee ligament and badly sprained ankle.  I’ve been in a leg brace and crutches for the last six weeks. Yesterday I saw the Dr. and am happy to report I got rid of the crutches. He still wants me to wear the brace for another three weeks but gave the brace

full range of motion so I can…walk but not run! Well, I couldn’t really run as my leg muscles have weaken considerably in the past 6 weeks. So thanks for praying; I’m healing.

Speaking of walking, Judy has organized a team to walk with others for a cure for Alzheimer in Tucson October 21. She is doing it for one of our friends, Larry Barrett, who has this disease. I’m really proud of her efforts and desire to see an end to this disease. Check our her page at the link.

Mark this dateSept 30th. Since 1966 the U.S. has celebrated Bible Translation Day on Sept 30th. This was proclaimed a holiday by the House and Senate. This Saturday pray for Bible translation going on around the world and those you know who are part of that work. Celebrate the 23 language communities which received God’s word in their language in the last year.
We were sad to see Chad is now on the list of countries which are banned entry to the US. We have had questions about it, but really don’t know why except that it is considered Muslim majority. But we would ask for prayer for the country as it is having great financial problems which are resulting in more attacks on foreigners so security is at a higher level. Pray for safety for those working in Chad.
Pray for Mexico with the earthquakes and Puerto Rico with the hurricane. We have heard our colleagues in Mexico are fine but many they know have lost their homes. Three of our colleagues are from Puerto Rico and news is their families are OK, but the island is a mess. Please keep them and those helping in your prayers.
Lastly an African proverb: If you want to walk fast, walk alone, but if you want to walk far, walk together.
Thanks for walking far with us.
