November 1996 - January, 1997

Dear praying friends,

November and December were hectic months for us. I admit that my correspondence has suffered. Here’s an update of what we’ve been up to:

Early in December, we sold our house for a good price. We spent a few busy weeks in November painting and fixing up to be sure we would meet the requirements for FHA loan approval.

After 14 years of marriage, and 10 years of living in Kankakee, we had a lot of accumulated “stuff”. We had a rummage sale in our basement to reduce what we would have to take with us or put in storage. Ruth was very successful. It amazed me the way she could turn so much of that stuff into cash.

We purchased a motor home and a travel trailer to assure that we have enough room for our family of six. The motor home pulls the travel trailer. When the two are hooked together, the entire rig is about 60 feet long!

After moving from the house to the R.V.’s, we spent a few weeks in December with my brother, Jerry. He is a professional mechanic with a large garage, and he volunteered to help me put the vehicles in tip-top mechanical condition. What a blessing he was to us. I’m sure we will avoid many problems on the road because of his help.

I continued to work my full time job at the nuclear power plant until the end of December. I spent the last few weeks finishing up some big projects. I resigned my position on January 2 so that we could go on deputation full time.

We are now in the south for some meetings in Louisiana, Texas, Tennessee, (and other places where our R.V.’s won’t freeze).

Now that we have moved, you may address correspondence to:

Don Ossewaarde, 1280 Armour Road, Bourbonnais, IL 60914

My e-mail address is: donossewaarde@juno.com

To leave voice mail, call 815-773-4673

Financial support should be sent in my name directly to :

BIMI, P.O. Box 9215, Chattanooga, TN 37412

We need your prayers for safety as we travel, for more churches to take us on for support, and for souls to be saved in our ministry.

In the service of the King,
Don Ossewaarde
