The Big 2 – 0

Deputation picture '86

Deputation picture

CAN you believe this picture? Pat’s hairdo seems from another world compared to current Dutch fashions, and Jack – well, he simply had a hairdo, unlike today. The picture is from our first brochure ever as missionaries, that we proudly sent out while on deputation from 1986.

THEN, on October 6th of 1988, we touched down at Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam (the Netherlands). We lived for a few weeks with Jack’s family and then with co-workers until we found our own home. Laura was just four months old. It’s hard to believe that’s already 20 years ago!

WE are so thankful for the many people who’s lives God allowed us to touch in these years. We still think it’s awesome how so many supporters have stood faithfully by us, many for the complete period and still continuing on. We think of the privilege of having served two churches and one school, focusing successively on evangelism, discipleship and then leadership training. We think of some of the heartaches that have come our way, and remain grateful for the Lord’s comfort and direction.

JOIN us in giving thanks to our heavenly Father for His faithfulness throughout these years. And please accept our heartfelt thanks for your prayer and support. We continue to need that, today more than ever.
