Christine completed her Master’s degree in August. I’m very proud of her. I finished my PhD on Dec. 13, 2017. The relief is enormous, and Christmas is a fitting conclusion. Moody Spokane will close on June 30, 2018, but we have experienced such major changes before. Fifteen years in Austria and three Bible Churches. Five years in and out of Russia before landing at Emmaus Bible College. Seven years at Emmaus, teaching students and planting Riverside Bible Church. Then eleven years in Spokane, WA, planting Red Bench Bible Church with some of the best people in the world, along with eight years of teaching students Cross-cultural, Bible, and theology classes. The faculty in Spokane is exceptional, in their fields, in teaching and in their love for students.
We are looking forward to the next stage of the Lord’s leading. We are both in our late 60s. Fifteen more years? The Lord is always full of surprises, and He never reveals the big picture, just the next step. This next door is going to be exciting!
