Dear Sisters,

That "Life After C-Section" article---whatever became of it? I promised I would write about my experience following the c-section birth of Caleb over a year ago. The basic article was all written and ready to go last year at this time, but it lacked an ending. We still didn't know exactly why I had ended up needing a c-section, and what the future held for more babies. I finally got to the doctor's office for consultation and a physical exam last fall and learned some answers. Gerald then encouraged me to finish the article. But every time I went to work on it, my whole being protested, "I don't even what to think about this, let alone relive each step of it as I write." I guess I'm having trouble dealing with the hurt and pain of that event. But my emotions are slowly healing, and I do intend to finish the article eventually. Please be patient with me, OK?

We now have a part time office manager, Jim Golden, who will be filling your orders, printing back issues, assembling bound volumes, and answering your questions regarding your subscription and orders. Jim and Pam are Christian friends with four children who live in a small town nearby. The reason for this change is to free up Gerald's time for pressing developments resulting from his research in Biblical chronology. This has also freed up Laura, who previously helped in the office processing orders, to help me more in the house---a welcome change. Our goal in all of these changes is to fulfill the ministries the Lord has entrusted to us.

A recent note from a subscriber reflected what many say. "Your newsletter always comes at a time when I have been dealing with the very problems you are talking about. How does God do that?" I don't know for sure, but isn't it wonderful to serve One Who knows our every need, as loves us so?

Casting all your care upon Him; for He careth for you.
(I Peter 5:7, KJV)
