My Banner Year - 2017

My Banner Year Christmas Letter for You in 2017

Yes, this was a Banner Year for me in several ways. I'm still so busy that I don't have time to make Christmas cards this year, but I have written up about my Banner year in my Christmas letter, and you are welcome to download it here.

Since my year involved finishing and publishing a book - not for my benefit, mind you, but to celebrate our Mission's 76th Anniversary - I am providing a separate Book Review, so you can get to see what it is about, and even how you may order a copy for youreself. Or others!

So . . . my friendly

Banner Year Christmas Letter - 2017

(PDF file).

and my

Review of - "Workers Together With God"

Incidentally, you will need to use legal sheets to print out the Banner Year letter. Regular letter sheets will do for the Book Review.

Sorry, I didn't get around to an end of the summer Garden Photo Tour this year. But I've included some photos of the flowers in the letter.

Again, I would like to remind you that if you really enjoy reading about my adventures, I still write a weekly blog/ezine/ RSS feed every Tuesday morning, and if you want to keep informed as to what I'm up to - that's the best way to do it.
