    Mark & Stacey – thank you for sharing, also enjoyed your letter Mark – I pray for you and your family and all missionaries daily. May God place an extra hedge of protection around you and SIM ministers everywhere.
    We are having very cold weather, but are fortunate to have warm homes and families with us. May God Bless you all – Love you, Barbara

    Looks like your having fun. Keep safe. As you know your Mom had an operation today and hopefully is doing okay. I will call her later tonight
    We had snow here in ATL on Tuesday and horrendous traffic jam for hours. Thank God I wasn’t caught in that. Some people were in their cars for over 20 hours. .
