Dear ND Alumni,
Loving greetings in Christ to each of you! I just got home last night from Sudan and Ethiopia and leave a week from today for India and Nepal. Then in December I have one more trip to Kenya -- which will end my year of travel. So I am really enjoying my laid-back-slowed-down-easy-going-retirement! NOT! So thanks for your prayers during this past year of travel and ministry! My schedule has been just like some of our old "ND Tours" -- packed to the gills!
I am shooting this quick email to EVERYONE we have on our ND Alumni Email List as a follow-up to my most recent email to you. As a result of that last mailing, Patt and I have gotten some encouraging responses. Some had apparently not gotten my earlier emails and letters about this…some had procrastinated…others had thought it was too late to respond! Regardless, I hope that any of you who have still not responded will do so ASAP. To that end, I hope you will send us your latest "family picture" to post with your memories -- just like this great one from Steve "Fuji" Allen, who was in the original NDs!
So please follow his example and get us your memories ASAP!
Thanks…JL & Patt
PS: As many of you know, I will turn the "Big 70" this year! So by God's grace I am moving toward the "4 score and 10" the Bible talks about (Ps. 90:10). So if any of you are in town on Dec. 31st, Patt and I would love to have you drop by to help me celebrate! To that end, I am attaching the invitation below.
