Chinese Year of the Lamb
Dear <<First Name>>,
There are a lot of Chinese characters that have interesting spiritual lessons. As people around the world celebrate Chinese New Year this week, here are a couple of examples:
NOTE: The Chinese character is the same for lamb, goat, & sheep
These characters were created long before the Advent of Christ, so it isn't the intended original meaning of these characters. However, it still serves to remind us that our happiness and righteousness depend on our relationship to the Lamb of God.
It has been a busy couple of weeks. Dwight's mom fell Sunday night and broke her hip. She had a partial hip replacement surgery and has been transferred to a rehabilitation center. She is recovering well and should be home soon.
Beckie's mom has also fallen a few times this week but didn't break anything. She got a knee brace to see if that will help.
Dwight will be the speaker next weekend for Gladstone First Baptist's Men's Retreat.
- Recovery for both our moms
- God's leading as Dwight prepares for the Gladstone 1st Baptist's men's retreat
- A car Beckie could use for next weekend while Dwight is at the retreat
- Pray that we will be completely funded for what will likely be our last 4 years at Morrison when we head back to Taiwan in June. (We have 88% of our needed support which leaves us about $1000/month short)
Thanks for your continued prayers, support and encouragement!
Dwight and Beckie
