HERE. I also changed colors around a bit to create Nathanael and Titus. :)
I am stitching another monthly piece. Imagine that! ;) I will show you that next time.
In 1960 the twenty-five thousand Dani tribespeople hidden away in the remote Toli Valley of Irian Jaya used only stone tools and had no written language. Then, in one generation, they took the always dangerous, sometimes fatal, leap from the Stone Age into the twentieth century.
At this critical time John and Helen Dekker gave themselves to the Dani, helping them discover the gospel of Jesus Christ and their destiny as helpers of other tribes. Today the seventy-nine churches of the Toli Valley, with thirteen thousand baptized believers, have sent out sixy-five couples to other tribes needing the gospel.
A chapter from a present-day Book of Acts, Torches of Joy is a model for cross-cultural mission strategy and one of the twentieth century's most striking chronicles of God's grace and power.
I never mentioned that Murphy had a dental cleaning at the beginning of this month. No more stinky breath. Yay! He was weighed at that time also. When he came to us last fall he was very thin from the stress of losing his one and only owner and home for 12 years. I am happy to say he is no longer 9.6 lbs, but 12.4 lbs.
Thank you for stopping in today. New friends and old friends are always welcome here.
Stitching and praying,
