    Kathy and Bill,

    Thanks for praying for Tim.

    Tim enjoys Civil War History also and has been to a re-inactment also once in N.C. while we were on Furlough. We've been on the Mission Field so long we are not used to all these extra activities to go to like there in the states...the US Air Force Band sounds like it would be good to hear. The only summer we were stateside--'99, we went to hear the "New John Philip Souza Band" at the University. That was the last time I had heard the National Anthem--they had a VERY, VERY large US Flag across the front of the choir loft (easily 20'x50')...it was very special. As usual, I can't sing at those times--just tear up and stand in awe & wonder. I do that every time we go home on furlough and hear the music in our home church...people don't realize how blessed they are!!

    Thanks for keeping in touch. LORD BLESS!!

    In Christian Love,
