Here we are ready to fly to Rome - strangely enough via Detroit. Some might ask why would we give up a relatively easy life of retirement, travel, family and friends (to say nothing of cookies) to go to Rome and help the missionaries through administrative efforts. We will certainly miss our four children, their spouses and six amazing grandchildren (although we have high hopes of visits from family and friends).
We have been abundantly blessed by the hand of God - that we cannot deny. To serve in this capacity is to show our love for Him and appreciation for His many blessings.
We feel as the apostle Paul said in Romans 1:16 - For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth;
Speaking of Paul, there is reason to believe that both Paul and Peter came to Rome and taught of Christ. In a minor way, we hope to do likewise, if not by spoken word by our actions and example to others.
