Update - October 2

The funeral for David’s father, Jacob (Jake) Gregersen, was held last Thursday. The service was led by Jake’s two sons, his two sons-in-law, and eight grandsons. It was a wonderful celebration of Jake’s life as a faithful Christian servant. The psalmist’s statement that “the memory of the righteous is a blessing” certainly rang true for our family. David's mother is a woman of great strength and faith and is doing well. We are blessed by a close and warm relationship with David’s two sisters and brother and their families, so spending time with them was a blessing even under the burden of our sorrow and loss.

Today we traveled to Austin to spend the weekend with our sponsoring congregation at Brentwood Oaks. We leave for Africa on Monday, October 6, and will be back at Namwianga on the 8th.

We appreciate the many prayers and expressions of concern from our blog readers.
