The next couple of weeks we spent at our home outside Chattanooga just trying to get caught up on some needed rest. We were blessed to have our granddaughter, Emily Joy, with us for three weeks before she returned to Crown College for her junior year. We filled in for Mark and Julie getting her settled in the dorm and that was a special blessing.
The next few weeks we reported to several of our supporting churches in the Chattanooga area. On October 10 we boarded a plane for Portland, OR where we were in a mission's conference at Timberline Baptist Church. This was a special time for us because the Associate Pastor and his wife were both saved at Rhein River Baptist Church. To see them serving the Lord and making such an impact in so many lives is a joy beyond compare.
From Portland we flew to Korea where we spent a little over a month ministering in two military churches. God blessed in a mission's conference at Lighthouse Baptist Church in Pyeongtaek where Bro. Bruce Rosko pastors. After one of the evening services Tom was able to lead a man to the Lord who had been invited to church earlier in the day while the men were passing out tracts.
Our last three weeks were at Calvary Baptist Church in Daegu, S. Korea, where our beloved friends, Larry and Kay Ferguson serve. They are also products of our ministry at Rhein River Baptist Church in Germany. We filled in for them while they took a short furlough to the states to visit with his father who has cancer. It was such a blessing to serve there.

Kristen, who was saved at RRBC presented us with this
beautiful gift at the reunion. She put many hours in this
crosstitch of "Amazing Grace". It will be treasured.
