NEWS FLASH – DAN IS 75 YEARS OLD

We thank God that Dan will be able to celebrate his 75th birthday Saturday, October 18!  He is feeling well, and looking forward to returning to our home in Sfantu Gheorghe.  He has celebrated many of his birthdays in that city.  

We should have a big party, but maybe when he is 80! It’s not too late to send him a greeting – most of you have our e-mail address, or Skype address.  Or you can write a comment in the comment line at the end of this message.  So, wherever you are, please, say a prayer of thanksgiving that Dan is doing so well, and ask God to keep him safe during surgery Monday and during recovery. 

In looking at his life, Dan finds Psalm 71: 14 – 21, 23 very fitting:

“As for me, I will always have hope;

 I will praise you more and more.

My mouth will tell of your righteousness,

Of your salvation all day long,

Though I know not its measure.

I will come and proclaim your mighty acts, O Sovereign Lord;

I will proclaim your righteousness, yours alone.

Since my youth, O God, you have taught me,

And to this day, I declare your marvelous deeds.

Even when I am old and gray,

Do not forsake me, O God, 

Till I declare your power to the next generation,

Your might to all who are to come.

Your righteousness reaches to the skies, O God,

You who have done great things, who, O God, is like you?

Though you have made me see troubles, many and bitter,

You will restore my life again;

From the depths of the earth,

You will again bring me up.

You will increase my honor

And comfort me once again….

My lips will shout for joy

When I sing praise to you —

I, whom you have redeemed.”

— Dan and Anne
