I am busy working on my PhD dissertation-it has been many a year but it is really just the beginning (hard to understand but the truth). So, keep me in your prayers and know you/yours are in mine! Get ready for a big Fiesta when this is DONE!!! May it be for the greater and honor of God and to serve God's people all the better, love and prayers, Janette
