Old and Gray-Headed

The Psalmist in Psalm 71:17-18 said: “O God, thou hast taught me from my youth; And hitherto have I declared thy wondrous works. Yea, even when I am old and grayheaded, O God, forsake me not, Until I have declared thy strength unto the next generation, Thy might to every one that is to come.”

Letter From The Family Regarding Sunday Ekanem

We have received a letter from Sunday Ekanem Jr. regarding the burial arrangements for Sunday Ekanem Sr (pictured here).

As you will recall, Sunday was a graduate of SIBI (class of 1973) and was working with the External Studies Division and International Studies Division of SIBI in Nigeria at the CAO Essien School of Evangelism. I will share the letter with you in the space below, but want to first let you know that if you would like to help the family with a monetary gift to cover funeral expenses, that would be appreciated. You can send it to SIBI and write on the memo line "Sunday Ekanem family" or send a note with your check. Thanks in advance for your generosity.

In Him,

Chris

Sunday Ekanem

I just found out that a former Sunset graduate, gospel preacher and the Dean of the CAO Essien Bible School of Nigeria, one of our 57 SIBI International ministry training schools, passed away suddenly at his home in Nigeria. Sunday Ekanem was a beloved graduate, a beloved co-worker and a great man of love and faith. He will certainly be missed.

The funeral details are still to be determined, but we certainly want to be praying for his wife Joy, his children, and all of the Christians in Nigeria who love him and have depended on him.

I was blessed to be with Brother Ekanem at the school and have witnessed his impact in ministry. I was proud to have him as a brother, proud of our common heritage with Sunset and grateful that he was willing to work with us. Soon we will have to see the possible impact this has on the school, but for now we just thank God for this brother and pray for his family, both physical and spiritual.

I will pass along more information as it becomes available.

In Him, Chris

Dear Brethren, Family and Friends

Si Na Bula (Good Morning) from Fiji

Many of will note that in my newsletters since we have been here I mention golf and the playing of such (if you call it that) on a regular basis. I am not good at it and the Lord has certainly shown me that I will never make a living at it. The recreation options are very very limited here and forget about socializing after dark. It seems that maybe some of you might have taken this to mean that playing golf is all I do over here and that while you are slaving away making a living I am asking you to support me for a life of recreation.

This was a (constructive) comment I received which brought this to my attention: "I think your continual mention of the golf games is a negative to, perhaps, many of your present and would-be supporters. I think they view it as they would here in the USA as being a fairly expensive recreational activity for someone who is always asking for more money. I refrained from mentioning this, but after one of our own leaders made such a remark to me I thought that perhaps the time had come to mention it to you." I am sorry if some of you have come to that conclusion.

Car wreck claims second life
ROBIN PYLE
AVALANCHE-JOURNAL
Sunday night’s fatal car wreck on North Loop 289 claimed a second life.
Ruby Hambrick, 65, of Lubbock died at University Medical Center, Lubbock police said.
Her passenger, 68-year-old Larry Monroe Hambrick of Lubbock, died shortly after being rushed to the hospital Sunday night.
A 21-year-old driver crashed a Chevrolet truck head-on into the Hambricks’ car shortly before 7 p.m. in the 3000 block of the North Loop.
“He may have fallen asleep, but we don’t know yet,” said Police Capt. James Shavers, adding the investigation is on-going.
Daniel Travis Ridley was headed west on the Loop when he lost control of the truck, crossing the median and slamming into the Hambricks’ car in the eastbound lane, according to the police report.
Two other cars, holding three people, also were involved in the wreck, but they did not suffer any injuries.
Ridley was taken to University Medical Center with moderate injuries.

Dear Brethren, Friends and family!

Greetings and grace from Fiji.

Bula Vinaka!

WEATHER DOWN-UNDER
We have continued to have heavy rains in Lautoka with over 22 inches of rain since our last report. This means that there is an overwhelming odor of rotting vegetation in the air and a layer of mildew and mold on anything that is just sitting around. This included and is not limited to all leather products such as shoes, wooden items, backpacks, hats, furniture. You name it the mildew and mold was on most everything because the humidity never got below 90%. However the last couple of weeks we have seen drier weather with thunderstorms in the afternoon only. We even had a few days without any rain with lower humidity but higher temperatures. When it was raining the temperatures even got down into the high 70's.
