Dad was in good spirits today but I think Sundays must be hard on him. By my count, he has missed five Sunday worship services in a row. You have to understand, we NEVER missed any services on Sunday or Wednesday. Dad is such a social person and as an elder, he really feels a responsibility to his flock. When he is gone, he can't tend them. Cecelya's daughter, Shanna, called him from Japan last night and that really boosted his spirits. He was ecstatic about Michigan losing to Appalachian State yesterday. I don't think his dad, my Grandpa and a UM alumnus, would have been quite so pleased! Dad spoke clearly this afternoon and was eager to hear the details of our Chinese mission meeting today in Houston. He remains much more interested in what we are doing than he is in feeling sorry for himself. Please continue to pray for Mom and Dad and our family. We cannot thank you enough!
