Dear Friends and Supporters,

We are happy to report to you that our plans for returning to our mission work in Asia are finalized and by the first week in April we hope to be settled in Singapore for the next session of classes. This will be our last newsletter from Lubbock, the next should come to you from Singapore in a new format.

Update from Phil Geeck

Dear Brethren,

Greetings. I thought I would bring you up to date in respect to Holly, our daughter-in-law. When we petitioned you for prayers, the situation did not look good. Basically, her liver shut down and the doctors were having trouble stabilizing it. After five days trying different treatments, they gave her two blood transfusions which seemed to jump-start her liver into action After eight days in the hospital, she returned home, on December 27th, to begin her long road to recovery. During the whole ordeal, she lost nearly sixty pounds. She is starting to regain some of that weight back.

In April, Holly will go back to a specialist to determine if she will need a liver transplant. We are hoping that she won't have that need. Part of the strain is that she and Terry don't have insurance and the cost of eight days of hospitalization and a new cost of hospitalization and a transplant will be overwhelming. We are confident that God will provide one way or another. They are trying to get on an Oregon state supported health plan. If this works, it will greatly help to cover any future costs.


Goracke Update

Dear Brethren,

With new news coming in by email this past weekend, I received word that a couple more supporters are coming on board with us. Our monthly commitment is now at 77% if all stay aboard. This of course, includes approximately $11,000 of extra one-time funds that we are rolling over towards our 1st year monthly needs. You know what that means for our 2nd year needs.

The Woodward Park congregation in Fresno, California is an amazing church! It is a vibrant and growing congregation with a long history of successful mission work. Perhaps one of the most productive mission fields in recent history is the work in Ethiopia, Hundreds of thousands have been won to the Lord, hundreds have been trained as preachers and teachers of the Word and hundreds of churches established as a result of the diligent work of this mission-minded church. But Ethiopia has not been the only mission field blessed by Woodward Park.

Lima Report February 2008

In Chincha the harvest is ready, in more ways than one. Six months after the earth quake and right on time the grape harvest has come in abundance. My last trip down to Chincha I returned with many gifts including two baskets full of ripe grapes. For those of you who do organic these grapes were raised without any pesticides, etc. and they are very super sweet. Amy and I along with the girls and my in-laws spent the entire evening the next day squeezing and pressing the grapes. We now have fresh grape juice to last for several weeks.

Stamatis Status - March 9, 2008

IBIA has ended the second week of our second term. The students have now completed one term and experienced their much desired first break. As always everyone has to make adjustments. There are new people, new environment, new daily schedule, new living situation, new responsibilities, etc. These guys are developing a good camaraderie.

News from Craig and Tomya Peters

Apparently God saw things differently...

We looked at the work that is piling up … the Special visiting teachers from Texas … the Partners that we thought were about to come on board … and we just planned to jump.
