My Valentine's Day

Welcome ICLW bloggers!

On Valentine's Day, Steve and I went to Bethel College for their "Couples Dinner."  It was a great evening.  It was a room full of couples that got married after meeting at Bethel College.  Dinner was very tasty.  After dinner, we went to see Bethel's performance of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dream coat.  The dinner and play were both included in the cost of the event.  The actors did such a great job.  I have seen the play once before, but Steve hadn't.  We had such a great time.  Then after dinner some friends from Michigan came down to see us and they met us at the theater.  Steve and I don't get to get out of the house and just spend fun times together very much anymore with us being so busy.  It was nice to get out and have a fun evening together.

The second part of our Valentine's Day celebration was on Saturday.  Steve got us tickets to see Comedian John Branyan at the Blue Gate Theater in Shipshewana.  I had never been there before.  That place is beautiful.  The tickets included dinner too and, Oh my gosh, was the food good.  I have to admit that service was less than stellar. We barely saw our server until we was bringing us dessert.  I think she filled out drinks once.  I guess that's what you get when you tip is included in the ticket price. It was so worth it though.
John Branyan was hilarious.  I laughed so hard.

Dinner was Cornish game hen, red potatoes, salad, and bread.  The salad dressing I got was their homemade French and it was so yummy.  The fresh bread they brought to the table was really good and they gave us Amish Peanut Butter and homemade Apple Butter to put on it.
For dessert...I think the picture tells you all you need to know.  I still have some left that I have to finish at home.  The piece was huge.

Inside a Snowglobe

The snow is so pretty outside. I'm not sure if you can see if the picture, but it's coming light and steady.  Looking out of big windows at work, it looks like we are living in a snow globe.

The World of Wycliffe - Information Technology

Today's missionaries enter a world that is very different from the one that most missionaries knew even 30 years ago. The world now runs on information maintained by digital systems.

Electronic communications, travel, media and the role of software in virtually everything you touch, from cars to watches to music to money, make IT the base for the global infrastructure.

This is certainly true in the "developed" world, and is fast becoming the case in the developing world as well. Everything seems to depend on IT to one degree or another. Missionaries cannot function effectively without dependence on IT any more than those who send them.


IT professionals are among the most in-demand jobs in Bible Translation. Computers have given translators the ability the do their work faster and more efficiently. My desire is to use my skills and experience with pc repair, server backups, network and email support and so much more that computers and technology can help with.


How to help us get to Cameroon:
It's really very simple. We are so close to reaching our goal of being to 20% by the end of January. Please help us reach us our next goal of 30% by the end of February.  Every financial gift, no matter how big or small, is appreciated and important to the work.  We are excited to see how God is going to provide.
