Psalm 75:6 “For not from the east or from the west and not from the wilderness comes lifting up, but it is God who executes judgment, putting down one and lifting up another“.
Dear Friends, The verses above are special to me. I am grateful that God puts down and lifts up.
Baby Lidia’s Eyes
In our last newsletter we didn’t mention anything about Lidia’s surgery for her tear ducts. In short she had an operation on both ducts and one was successful and the other wasn’t. The doctor was talking about different possibilities, even as far as to say she might not have a tear duct and one would have to be made. I know at least one of you prayed for her, and am very happy to share that it looks like she is healed. She has had this problem with her eyes since she was born and it is a huge relief and blessing to see her better for the first time in her life. Praise God.
Christmases and sicknesses
We also had a blessed Christmas. I got two weeks off from work but I have been sick the whole time. Something in my lungs that just won’t go away. It seems like something is going around all over the country, certainly in the school I teach at. It’s not pleasant to spend my vacation at home sick, but it’s a lot better than at work sick. Please pray for our healing, especially as I go back to work on Monday.
Courses in Video
While I was sick at home I was able to take advantage of the time by completing a few online courses in video and editing. It was helpful and I hope the Lord opens some doors to get involved in some projects.
Speaking of video, we have permission to make DVD’s of several of Livingwaters evangelistic videos (with Romanian subtitles) to give out. If you are interested in helping cover the cost of producing some to give out, please let me know.
Please keep our family in your prayers. This time of year with sickness, cold weather, leaving to work when it’s dark and coming back when it’s dark, can really add to the trials of life and make it really challenging for us.

1 John 3:1 See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are. The reason why the world does not know us is that it did not know him.
