Dear <<First Name>>,
"You are more sinful and flawed than you ever
dared believe, but more loved and accepted
than you ever dared hope." Tim Keller
That is my favorite quote so far from Morrison's current Spiritual Life Week. Morrison has two Spiritual Life Weeks every year. We bring in a guest speaker for the week and have chapel every day and a couple of evening meetings. The current speaker is Steve Brooks, a Morrison graduate from 1987 and former Morrison teacher. (His father was the principal and superintendent our first two years here.) Many former and current students will point back to one of these weeks as the time when they made a major decision and commitment to Christ.
Beckie had her first doctor's appointment for her heart since returning to Taiwan. She still has extreme tricuspid valve regurgitation but few symptoms so we will continue to monitor it until something changes.
The Men of Honor Class Dwight created in 2007 has been passed on to a new teacher. Dwight enjoys seeing the positive tweaks implemented by Mr. Manu. Going camping with the class brings back many memories from the guys and trips from previous years. Dwight will also get to be a guest presenter in both the Men of Honor and Women of Worth classes this Fall.
- Pastor Steve Brooks as he speaks to middle school and high school students daily this week on really understanding the gospel. He is fighting a cold and hoping to not lose his voice.
- Dwight's planning and studying for his new classes: Java Programming, Algebra 1, and AV Production
- Beckie's mom's health to continue improving
- Beckie's tricuspid valve to start functioning better over time now that the old pacemaker lead has been removed.
- God's continued provision for our financial needs. This will be our last term (2 to 4 years) with Morrison Academy. (We are $582/month short of being fully supported.)
Thanks for your continued prayers, support and encouragement!
Dwight and Beckie
You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love. For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” Galatians 5:13-14
