Dear Friend, Thank you so much for praying for us and our family right now. My father is progressively declining and we have come to the conclusion that he is suffering from mini-strokes.

Dear Friend, I am in the midst of lots of travel. I am on twenty-eight different airplanes in a thirty-one day stretch.

I was in Vancouver, BC, helping with a Grand...
