A lot has happened since our last post. The most exciting thing has been Lisa’s being restored to full health and Hans’ engagement and upcoming marriage!
(Lisa writes): A lot has been happening with us this year. Hans graduated from the University of Idaho with a Masters degree in Mechanical Engineering this past June. He then became engaged in August to a lovely girl from our church named Justine. Now this is the tough part. Hans then left for Boise to take his new job with Hewlett-Packard in September. He now drives up to Moscow twice a month (5 1/2 hours drive) to visit his fiancée. Both are eagerly awaiting January, when they can finally be together and married in Montana, her home state. The rest of the kids aren’t changing quite as drastically. Noai is working in the office of a local Christian ministry and enjoying life after graduating from NSA –our church’s college. Andreas is now in his third year at the same college. He just got a new camera and has been enjoying taking picture of the fall colors. Jeremiah just finished up his cross-country season and a good season. It was a joy to see him run again after a major injury last spring.
Finally, the other amazing change in our family is that, as far as I know, I am now healed! In less than one week I went from doing still poorly, but functioning lightly, to completely normal. It was pretty amazing and so simple a fix too. We just didn’t see it, nor could we put together the many small clues that were there, until we went camping in July. Email us if you would like the longer version. The short story is that we just recently found out that I was suffering from severe obstructive sleep apnea all this time. Now I sleep with a CPAP machine and get all the oxygen and REM sleep that I need! We are very thankful and praising God! Thank you for your prayers!
